They come with all the smarts of Amazon’s excellent Fire TV set-top box as well as a…
In the market for a brand new, shiny, smart TV?

Let us ease your purchasing headaches and point out what to…
Shopping for a new TV is already a hassle. Trying to decide what size to get, and what features you need, all while dealing with a pushy sales clerk, is bad enough. So the last thing you want exasperating the ordeal is a mild heart attack when a store’s demo model becomes a portal to a nightmarish otherworld.
Heading into CES 2017, we had a good idea as to some of the big trends we’d see. And we weren’t totally wrong—Amazon’s Alexa assistant was baked into gadgets everywhere, even in cars! But looking back at all of our coverage, there was plenty we had no idea about. This is the best stuff we saw at CES 2o17.
Every year at CES, LG gives us a look at its craziest ideas for the future of display technology. At a press conference earlier today, the company showed off its refreshed OLED televisions, regarded by many as the best on the market. In a private briefing at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Gizmodo was shown LG’s…
They’re nowhere near as huge as the CRT and rear-projection TVs many of us grew up with, but a sizeable flatscreen can still take up quite a bit of space in a room—unless you find some clever way to make it disappear at the push of a button.
Saying “I don’t own a TV” is a good way to let people know that you’re a pretentious asshole. But even though more and more people are eager to tell you they don’t “have TV,” don’t be fooled! You better believe that they are still “watching TV.”

The Super Bowl is less than a week away, and that means it’s time to throw out everything you own and start living like a real American—with a brand new home entertainment system plopped right in the middle of your living room.

Even before we trekked out to the desert for the Consumer Electronics Show, we had a good idea that CES would be flush with smart cars, televisions, virtual reality, and a bunch of weirdness. We were right! But as always, there were some surprises in store.
You could say that, historically, televisions are the star of CES. After all, it was at CES in 1998 that the world saw the first ever high-definition TVs. Plasma TVs debuted at CES in 2001, and OLEDs appeared in 2008. This year, however, everything was pretty damn boring. That’s not a bad thing.
That silly sci-fi dream of invisible screens that magically display graphics is inching towards reality. Thanks to LG, the world can now lust after a television that looks like it’s nothing more than a pane of translucent glass—and a very thin pane of glass at that.
It’s very easy indeed to end up with a sofa arm littered with button-clad boxes. But while after-market multi-device controllers exist, Samsung plans to solve the problem straight out of the box with its new smart TV remotes.
