Netflix’s new satirical advert pokes fun at archaic installations

By now, we all know that there’s tension between the local paid-TV broadcaster (DStv parent Multichoice) and the international video-on-demand (VOD) streaming service, Netflix. There’s no love lost, and Netflix has just released a very South African-flavoured ad that takes a not-so-gentle dig at its satellite-focused competitor.

Obviously CES 2018 was always going to bring us some of the most interesting (and unconventional) new tech we’ll see all year, but even we weren’t expecting yoga mat TVs. No, really. LG Display has just shown off a prototype of their 65-inch OLED screen that can be rolled up and hidden when it is not in use.

Screen time is about more than setting limits

You might have heard of Dolby Atmos in cinemas, but the format is arguably making more moves at home now, thanks to an ever-increasing number of Blu-ray discs ...[Read More]

Are esports the next major league sport?

LG OLED65E6V – TV of the Year 2016

You could probably get a decent second-hand car for the price of LG’s whopping OLED65E6V set, but what the E6V lacks in wheels it makes up in… TV stuff (plus you can’t hang a 2007 Prius on the wall and watch Mr. Robot on it).
