There are abundance of them on the show floor at CES from companies big and small, but we are all ears for what Sony has to offer with its new A8F 4K HDR OLED TV with Acoustic Surface.

LG Unveiled Revolutionary Paper-like OLED TV That Rolls Into A Box At CES

If you are old enough, you may be able to recall that in the early days of CRT TVs, some of them came with integrated cabinet that has functional doors (either swing or sliding type). I am not entirely sure what was the rationale behind this TV-in-cabinet (specifically, those with doors), but my best guesses would be, one, to keep children off the TV (because some models actually had lock on them) and two, perhaps to blend with the rest of the home furnishing.

Vizio SmartCast P-Series Ditches Remote In Favor Of Android Tablet

When Smart TV, aka connected TV, was introduced it changes the way we watch TV and in a way, took a stab at paid cable TV providers. We are no longer bound to free-to-air TV and subject to cable TV’s schedule which often do not fit our lifestyle. It was a new found freedom. A leap it was from traditional TV but there’s one thing that never change: however fancy the display and however ‘smart’ the TV are, the TV from past to present have one thing in common: remote control. We are in a ‘smart’ era and it kind of sucks that we are not firing up holographic menus from our coffee table when surfing the channels. No, we are not there yet, but with the announcement of the Vizio SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display, couch potatoes are finally seeing some real advancement in TV and home entertainment in general.
