You can watch movies and shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and other services on a smartphone or a tablet, but a dedicated TV will always be something special. It’s the centerpiece of your living room, and the only display that you can truly cozy up to on the couch for hours on end. If you want to get more out of your purchase, you can make it even better with a powerful sound system and by hooking up a few game consoles, like the Nintendo Switch, PS4, or Xbox One. The latest 4K (and soon, 8K) displays from Sony, Samsung, LG, Vizio, and more deliver enhanced visual quality, better value, and smart features that you can’t find on other screens outside of your local cinema. If you’re looking for the latest TV news, how-tos on optimizing your home theater setup, and reviews for OLED and LCD TVs, you’ve come to the right place.

OLED TV sales slump for (un)Lucky Goldstar.

No Olympics, no World Cup, and everyone that wanted a giant 4K TV bought one while suffering at home with covid. Little wonder LG Display has posted six straight quarterly losses.

There’s a new Fire TV Soundbar.

It’s got Bluetooth and should work with all Fire TV products, no set up required. That’s a leg up on many other soundbars, which require at least a little time and navigating a few menus in an app to get up and running.

It’s available today for $119.99.

After publishing Amazon reached out to confirm that yes, the Soundbar will work with any smart TV via HDMI.

The Fire TV search demo is really cool, but the TV has motion smoothing on.

Please no one tell Tom Cruise, or he might vault into the building from 300 feet in the air to turn the motion smoothing off.

Here’s another giant MicroLED TV you can’t afford.

If your living room looks anything like this photo then you can afford LG’s new 118-inch Magnit TV, now available to buy in the US for $237,000 — a discount off the slightly larger 130-inch MicroLED TV LG launched last year for $300,000. Bargain!

Welcome home, money bags.

Megan Thee Ghost Detective.

Megan Thee Stallion has a brand new song out now with Cardi B, several Grammys, and a whole-ass degree in health administration. She’s also a huge weeb. Here she is jamming out to one of the best anime opening themes ever, Yu Yu Hakusho’s “Smile Bomb.”

A first look at Atmos FlexConnect, Dolby’s latest attempt to fix bad TV audio

The new technology wirelessly pairs compatible speakers with your TV, with the idea that you don’t have to worry about getting them in the exact right positions. It’s coming to TCL’s TVs next year.

Leica’s ultra-short throw 4K projector has a US price and date.

Nearly a year after we first saw a prototype of the triple-RGB laser Cine 1 prototype in action, we now know it’ll cost $8,995 for the 100-inch model, and $9,495 for the 120-inch model when sales begin on September 6th. That’s not cheap, but it sure is pretty compared to the alternative of erecting a monolithic black slab in your fancy living room.

Don’t expect this projector’s 2400 ISO lumens to compete with giant exposed windows as well as it does in this render.

The LG StanbyME Go sponcon is here and it is incredible.

Vergecast listener Guy flags the sponsored appearance of the (hilarious, wonderful) LG StanbyME Go suitcase TV in a YouTube camping influencer’s video and... well, here’s a screenshot. I love everything about this situation.
