It's a CES-heavy post today as the news comes tumbling out of Las Vegas faster than Michael Bay can exit a stage. Amid the hype over the latest must-have gadgets, there have been some interesting and exciting announcements and discussions around 4K (and 5K and 8K!) televisions although Sony CEO Kaz Hirai says we are a long, long way off from mass adoption. Up to 7 years in his estimation - although they may just be affordable enough to buy in 2021. Am I right?
I'm joking of course but they'll still be a spendy option for years to come, even though the pre-loading of Netflix and other services makes them a very tempting option. These and other stories of the day in cable, video and CES news from ReelSEO.
