Be warned that once you sit for a spell in front of a massive TV, you'll never want to go smaller. Or at least that's been my experiencing, having gone from a 52-inch to a 75-inch and, most recently, an 85-inch TV over the years. Now I'm loathe to go with anything smaller than an 85-incher, though I'd consider making... Read more...
Samsung is upgrading its 2023 TV and monitor lineups with an accessibility feature that will tweak different color settings based on a viewer's type and level of color vision deficiency (CVD), the South Korean electronics maker announced.

Samsung is on an apparent mission to supersize home theater setups, and that's just fine by this author, who splurged on an 85-inch TV a couple of years ago. While still big, it's not as massive as Samsung's newest offering, an absolutely monstrous 98-inch QLED 4K TV (model 98Q80C). Yes, it's expensive as you might... Read more...
Roku is an established brand in the smart TV space with a robust and ever-expanding catalog of streaming hardware solutions, but up until now it's always been a third-party player to brands like LG, Samsung, Sony, and the like.

Samsung has commanded a bit of the limelight this week amidst a barrage of CES 2023 product launches and announcements, especially with its ridiculously cool 57” 8K Odyssey Mini LED G9 gaming monitor. It is ludicrously excessive in all the ways that excite us, but in any event, it isn’t the only exciting thing coming... Read more...
Up to this point, the selection of Fire TVs on Amazon in the US has been served by the likes of Toshiba, Insignia, JVC, and Pioneer.

Well, it was bound to happen, folks. I just finished upgrading my home theater setup, the crown jewel being an 85-inch Samsung Neo QLED television that gets brighter than the sun (almost, anyway) and is brimming with newfangled technologies. So of course a company—AU Optronics (AUO), in this instance—would be quick to... Read more...
At CES 2019, Samsung unveiled a more consumer-friendly “Wall TV," which could have made its way to homes. It still packed the amazing MicroLED technology, came in a smaller form factor and remained modular. However, modularity could cause some issues for buying and setting up a screen such as a TV. Now, Samsung is... Read more...
It is a bit early to be doing spring cleaning, but you might as well take that crusty 'old' 4K television of yours and put it by the road, or dumpster. Yes, the 75-incher you just bought—it is obsolete, yesterday's news, a relic! Okay, not really (and don't actually get rid of it!). However, TV makers have already... Read more...
Whoever opined that money does not buy happiness has never ridden on a jet ski or dined on a seafood feast at an expensive restaurant.

Hidden fees, inconsistent pricing, abysmal customer service, and limited content have all become hallmarks of the satellite television providers.

The streaming market is booming, and everyone and their dog wants in on the action.

Samsung this week unveiled its 2018 lineup of big screen televisions at the company's First Look event in New York, and one of the features that stands out is a new Ambient Mode.

We will not call it a coup, but the number of people who are willing to ditch their cable or satellite TV service in favor of streaming content through the Internet continues to rise.

It's no secret that Apple wants a piece of the streaming TV pie, but negotiating terms with big media firms has proven less than easy.

Not only is Netflix cheaper than a cable TV subscription, the value proposition is higher—much higher, in fact, which some might find surprising (and even outright dispute) due to Netflix's limited catalog of titles. Be that as it may, Netflix subscribers pay roughly three times less per hour of content than cable TV... Read more...
Google today announced that it's adding live TV listings to search.
