    This Headband Lets You Control Netflix With Your Mind

    The top minds at Netflix have got this wearable tech thing down pat.

    15 Things You Should Know About Riverdale

    Tonight Riverdale premieres on the CW. Now yes, the title of the show shares a name with the same fictional town featured in the classic Archie comic books, but that’s about where the similarities end.

    DirecTV NOW Review

    I dumped cable a few years ago and replaced it with Hulu, Netflix and Sling TV. So being a cord cutter, I was super psyched by the announcement of DirecTV NOW with its 120+ channel lineup.

    JBL Boost TV Review

    The JBL Boost TV is aptly named — it really does provide a much needed boost to your flat panel TV. I absolutely love my TCL Roku TV — it’s an incredible value and a great TV for the money, but its weakest aspect, like with most TVs, is its audio. It’s not just that the built-in […]

    LG’s Latest OLED TV Might as Well Be Wallpaper

    If there was any doubt about which company was going to rule TVs at CES 2017, it’s gone. LG has announced their 2017 line of TVs, and it’s headlined by the W7 Signature — the flexible OLED panel is so thin (thinner than any smartphone), it can only be mounted (looks more like affixed) to the […]

    TCL Ups Their Game With Beautiful 4k HDR Tellies

    We’ve been big fans of TCL televisions lately, and there’s little wonder why — as it becomes cheaper to manufacture high-resolution LCD displays, it’s become easier for smaller companies to compete with giants like Samsung and LG by producing TVs almost as good for a fraction of the price. The competition is only heating up […]

    Samsung Introduces New Even More Premium Line of QLED TVs

    It’s CES time, and that means lots of new televisions. But, televisions have been hitting a wall the past few years — we’re getting about as much as we can out of LED-backlit LCD panels, but OLED panels are still a bit too hard to source and produce to go mainstream. That hasn’t stopped Samsung from […]

    Cloud DVR is Coming to Sling TV, But There Are Some Restrictions

    For a while, Dish Network’s Sling TV was at the forefront of cord-cutting, streaming packages of television channels over the internet at a far lower price than cable. Since then, they’ve added a plan for customers who need to stream to multiple devices and have gradually added channels to their packages. But, with the introduction […]
