The HDTV business is booming, and even though they aren't nearly as buzz-worthy as they once were, that's clearly not stopping consumers from picking them up. High-def sets have withstood the test of time thus far, with more and more consumers jumping at the chance to upgrade to a flat-panel as each year passes by... Read more...
We tend to hear about these "world's thinnest" claims with some degree of frequency, but with HDTVs progressively getting smaller and smaller in terms of depth, we guess it's somewhat justified. Today, LG Display has announced what is thought to be the planet's slimmest TV...for the moment. Measuring ust 2.6mm thick, the newly designed slim... Read more...
What a couple of years it has been for Boxee. Granted, 2008 and 2009 hasn't been the easiest years for startups to gain funding and solicit business, but somehow Boxee has struck a chord with consumers. It just so happened to surface at the right time in order to take the world by storm, and by and large it has yet to... Read more...
Mobile TV has had a tough go at it in America. A few of the major carriers offer TV services on select smartphones, but the $10+ per month charge usually turns people off. Amazingly, far smaller of a fight has been put up for the insane rates carriers charge for texting, but we suppose that's the true measure of... Read more...
It was certified without making too much fuss (maybe because Americans don't really seem that fond of watching TV on the go?), but at any rate, the ATSC gave the green light to the Mobile DTV standard just a few months ago. The result? A new protocol for companies to jump on, and in the end, we should be looking at a... Read more...
Like the NFL? Who doesn't, right? Evidently Sprint is certainly expecting its own customers to dig it, as it has today announced that it will be the only wireless carrier to offer live NFL Network game telecasts via its exclusive NFL Mobile Live application and on Sprint TV beginning Nov. 12 when NFL Network televises the first of its eight-game...

Oh, the elusive OLED HDTV. OLED displays have been around in some form or another for years now, and they've been in a multitude of gizmos for just about as long. But one device that the OLED has strayed away from is the big-screen HDTV, and the #1 reason is cost. Without question, making a 42" OLED HDTV would cost an... Read more...
The SlingMobile application for the iPhone may be great for some, but for everyone else there's Monsoon's HAVA. The highly anticipated app, which was already launched on other platforms, has finally made its way past Apple's app security patrol and onto the App Store. What's it do? Put simply, it allows allows HAVA customers to view and control... Read more...
It's a question worth asking, but the answer is still probably a couple of years out, at best. Will 3D finally make a lasting impression? Unless you've been living under a rock over the past year, you will have noticed that the movie industry, the consumer electronics industry and big time TV makers have all been... Read more...
We got a glimpse at FLO TV's future plans at a CES pre-show event in June, and now everything's really coming into focus. FLO TV provides mobile television services for US carriers--you may have heard of it if you have an AT&T smartphone or Sprint TV. But generally speaking, adoption on mobile TV on cellphones has...

For HTPC owners, most thought this day would never come. It's a liberation celebration, and frankly, it's coming way too late. Still, we'll take late over never almost all of the time, so we can't help but thank those involved for finally freeing CableCARDs of the OEM chains. This past week at CEDIA, Microsoft announced that anyone could now... Read more...

To enable this wireless... Read more...
Don't get us wrong, we know that JVC is a trusted name in consumer electronics, but it's hardly the first name we think of when considering a new TV. When big brands such as Sony, Samsung and Sharp soaking up the ad time, it's oftentimes hard to remember that JVC is in the mix. Of course, all that could change thanks to one set, but we'd argue...

There was a time not too long ago where just about every TV maker was jumping to add Netflix streaming to their sets. Now that said wave has rolled, it looks like the next bandwagon to jump on is the one with the Vudu banner streaming from the rear. Shortly after LG announced that a select few of its Netcast HDTVs would be able to stream on-demand... Read more...
If you had any doubts that the TV Everywhere initiative was picking up steam, here's some proof that the service is really gaining traction. With Comcast and Time Warner Cable already latching on, the newest pay-TV operator to join in is Verizon. The company, which sells television programming over its fiber-based FiOS TV offering, has this... Read more...
We've always heard that something's "on" when it hits the mainstream, so we guess it's about time we finally confessed that Internet TV has emerged from the closet. For the longest while, Hulu, Boxee and the like dominated the underground Web TV content scene, but it wasn't too long ago that major cable companies like Comcast and Time Warner... Read more...

Considered the flagship model of its expanded LED backlit HDTV series, the new lineup combines the picture quality you're used... Read more...
At this point, you've got to do something pretty special for your HDTV to stand out. After all, an HDTV is an HDTV, right? With nearly every set these days--from the cheapest to the most expensive--boasting a 1080p panel a frame that's at least marginally thin, the over-crowded market is becoming tougher and tougher to penetrate. Toshiba's... Read more...
When most people see the THX logo, they think sound. And understandably so, given that said logo is in pretty much every theater and stamped onto a slew of higher-end audio products. But, contrary to popular belief, THX can also relate to video, though apparently getting certification for your HDTV costs a pretty penny. After posting stellar... Read more...
