HDR Roku on the horizon

As is typical for this sort of news, Zatz Not Funny! has the skinny on a new crop of Rokus queuing for release. While I’ve lost most of my love for our Roku 2 since testing started on the NIVIDA Shield, I think it remains the best general purpose media streamer for most people – and the price should be […]

LG E6 OLED reviewed at HDTVtest

LG’s OLED display continue to review very well, with some improvements from previous years. It’s actually this reasonably rapid improvement that makes me hesitate the most when it comes to picking up an OLED display. The sweet spot within LG’s 2016 OLED television lineup is undoubtedly the E6 series: it’s less expensive than the flagship “Signature” G6 series, yet offers […]

HTR Review DISH Hopper 3

DISH network is one of the few MSOs that pushes the evelope when it comes to home DVR capability. So I always make a point to check out their CES announcements. The devices aren’t reviewed that often so it’s nice to see a reputable 3rd party take a look. Let me just go ahead and be blunt about this right […]

DUNE HD Solo 4K

Just finished reading the PR for DUNE HD’s upcoming Solo 4K player. WOW, there is a lot of information to be had. First off, the player itself looks fantastic. Small, lots of power, all the great stuff we’ve come to expect from DUNE HD’s “just plays” experience, and with DVB-T/T2 tuners and 2.5″ HDD for DVR support we have a […]

From the looks of it the Samsung UEKS9000 would be a solid contender, even though it doesn’t quite offer the same blacks as a full-array local dimming and has some issues with HDR […]

Insignia 4K RokuTVs available, maybe just Canada

There’s an odd disconnect between what’s in the PR email and on Roku’s site. One says Canada, the other seems targeted to the US. I don’t know if they’re [poorly] geo-targeting my UK IP or just got their PR wires crossed. Either way, it’s nice to see more options available for the best OTT platform out there. Today we’re excited […]

2nd Gen Amazon FireTV reviewed @ HTR

I was tempted by the new 4K FireTV, but seems a bit too focused on Amazon’s services to find a place in my stack. That said, the price is right ($99) and Amazon is making great strides in the content space… Maybe next year :). Last October, Amazon introduced a new version of its Fire TV streaming media player. Following […]
