Do you want to be able to stream content from your phone or computer to your TV wirelessly? There are several ways to do that, but if you’ve bought into the Apple ecosystem, AirPlay 2 is your friend, but unfortunately the protocol isn’t exactly available across multiple TV brands, unless you don’t mind springing for one of Samsung’s 2021 TV models.
For those who don’t want to clutter their living rooms with a TV, short throw projectors are a good alternative, although sometimes depending on the model you have, it might not be as good in terms of quality and features compared to a regular TV. However, at CES 2021, Hisense is hoping to change that with some bold claims.
When we think of smart TVs, we think of TVs that come with features like the ability to support apps, streaming services, and more. However, it seems that Sony is really trying to redefine what we know as a smart TV because ahead of CES 2021, the company has announced a new lineup of Bravia TVs that will be powered by Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR.
One of the advantages of game streaming is the ability for gamers to play games on almost any device that can connect to the internet, and not have to worry about things like hardware compatibility, whether or not their device has enough power to run those games, and so on, and this is an opportunity that Microsoft is looking to take advantage of.
There are people who choose to use a TV as a monitor for their PCs, but there are reasons why monitors are still preferred over TVs, such as size, refresh rate, response time, and so on. However, why can’t you have the best of both worlds? That’s something that Samsung seems to think is possible with its new Samsung M7 display.
TV’s are a common fixture in the living room, but when not in use, they can sometimes look unsightly as they’re essentially a huge blank black piece of furniture. This is why companies like Samsung have designed some of their TVs to look more like art pieces so that they’re not so obtrusive.
If you own an LG smart TV from 2018, you might want to check to see if your TV has a new firmware update. This is because according to some owners of LG’s 2018 smart TVs, it seems that they are discovering that the Apple TV app is showing up on their devices.
Want to connect your laptop to a TV but don’t want to deal with the hassles of dragging cables? If you do, you may or may not have heard of the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter. For those who haven’t, this is basically an adapter for your TV (or monitor) that gives it wireless capabilities that you can then connect a Windows computer to.
Our televisions are these massive black screens (when not turned on) that hang out in our living rooms. You could also call them integral to a home, but who’s to say that they can’t look nice at the same time? If you are after a piece of unique gadgetry, then you might be interested to learn that Xiaomi has announced the Mi TV Lux OLED Transparent Edition.
Sony will be releasing their PS5 next-gen console later this year. For the most part, if you already own a TV, it should just be a matter of plugging it in and you’re all set. However, it seems that leading up to the launch of the console, Sony has actually announced several “Ready for PlayStation 5” TVs that are apparently optimized for the console.
Need to connect a laptop to a TV? Maybe you want a bigger screen for watching movies, surfing the web, or making presentations, and here’s how you can do it.
Back in 2019, Samsung took the wraps off their new Sero TV. While we’ve seen Samsung come up with some truly creative TV designs, what made the Sero so special is that it is a rotating TV. This means that the TV can be rotated horizontally or vertically depending on your needs, versus the majority of TV designs which are usually in landscape mode.
TVs were mostly designed for indoor use, but we get it, sometimes it can be nice to have a BBQ outdoors, have a pool party, and then watch some movies while enjoying the nice outdoors air. However, the problem with putting a TV outdoors is that you’re subjecting it to the elements, meaning that over time, it can get damaged.
Last year, LG announced that they would be bringing AirPlay 2 and HomeKit to its 2019 smart TVs. However, the company stated that only its 2019 models (and presumably beyond) would be on the receiving end of those new features, which pretty much meant that its older models would not be getting it.
In the TV market, Samsung and LG are two of the more prominent makers of OLED televisions, but it looks like we can add yet another manufacture to the list in the form of Vizio. At CES 2020, the company announced that they will be adding OLED TVs to their lineup, where the 2020 lineup includes a variety of TVs ranging from low-end to higher-end OLEDs.
CES is around the corner and if you’re in the market for a new TV, LG has you covered. The company has announced that at the event, they will be showing off “real” 8K TVs. Given that 4K is more or less the current standard, launching 8K TVs is clearly aimed at consumers who wouldn’t mind futureproofing their purchases.
According to a report from a couple of days ago, it was suggested that Samsung could have a new TV in the works that they might debut at CES 2020 next week. While TVs aren’t new and their presence at CES is to be expected, what makes this TV particularly special is that it could be a bezel-less TV.
Every year, companies try to reduce the bezels on their TVs as much as possible. There are still bezels, but they’ve become so thin that they’ve become almost imperceptible. However, come CES 2020, Samsung might be turning the industry on its head where the company is rumored to launch a zero bezel TV.
CES 2020 will be taking place next week. This is an exciting time of the year because CES is easily the largest consumer electronics show in the year. Many companies usually take this opportunity to announce new products, show off prototypes that they’re working on, along with various concepts and ideas that they are working on.

TVs aren’t really devices that we change or upgrade frequently. However, it seems that if you largely rely on your smart TV to access apps like Netflix, then you might want to take note because if you own one of Samsung’s older smart TVs, come December, support for Netflix will be dropped.
