In the competitive UK streaming market, pricing might be important, but many services live and die on the features they offer. With juggernauts like Netflix and Amazon already committing to bumping up the quality of their streams, Wuaki.tv is moving quickly to match its competition by adding 4K co

There were so many TVs on display back at CES, that you'd be forgiven if they all blended together. So allow us to give you a recap: The Samsung UN105S9W was, in the company's own words, the \"world's first, largest and most curved 105-inch curved UHD TV.\" Well then! Sounds like an expensive piece

Things have been relatively quiet with OUYA, but yesterday's announcement of a subscription service apparently isn't all that's coming out of Julie Uhrman's Android gaming company this week: you can finally access OUYA games through Mad Catz's Android console, the M.O.J.O. Sure, the appearance is

Sporting events are often used as a testbed for new broadcast technologies, and this year's World Cup is no different. The BBC is already piloting 4K transmissions (albeit internally) from Brazil, but Sony has dreams of hitting the big screen. The official World Cup sponsor announced today that it

Following ASUS' $799 28-inch 4K monitor from earlier this year, the Taiwanese tech giant has today unveiled yet another high-res display, but this time it's aimed at semi-professionals instead of mainstream users. The new ProArt Monitor PA328Q is a 32-inch, 16:9, 3,840 x 2,160 monitor that boasts

4K TVs are still quite expensive and there's still not a lot of stuff to watch on 'em. If neither of those things deterred you from buying one, however, then Sony's FMP-X10 Ultra HD Media Player is probably a good investment. The Roku-esque hardware lets you pull down 4K content like American Hust

See those two screens up there? Pretty soon the smartphone will have the same resolution as the much bigger panel (a 27-inch Dell U2711 monitor with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels). While the snappiest CPUs, more RAM, better cameras and other frills are a must for the latest handsets, the current marketing

Kogan's name may not roll off your brain as easily as some companies we could mention, but the Australian outfit is attempting to bring premium technology to the masses with a focus on low prices. In fact, there's probably a comparison with Vizio to be made here, considering that Kogan's first 4K

4K? Pah, Toshiba's already working on something, you know, one better. One of our eagle-eyed readers sent in this picture of a \"5K\" extra-wide UHD TV on the show floor. Of course, like LG's 5K model, this is really just a 4K TV with a thousand extra pixels tacked on at the edges, but the plain tec

Admit it: if you had the means (and the space) you'd absolutely want to own Samsung's 105-inch curved 4K television set. Unfortunately, the vast majority of our readers can meet neither of the aforementioned criteria, which is why you must live vicariously through us. We're happy to provide this m
