4K televisions are known to offer better sound and picture quality, but did you know if you haven’t adjusted the settings on your new HDTV, chances are you aren’t getting the best quality possible? With the latest 4K and 4K Ultra sets, there are a few options and modes to get your television working exactly how you want it. Initial Set-Up Once you set up your television and first turn it on, you’ll find that most HDTVs have a settings screen allowing the user to choose from either ‘Home Use Mode’ or  ‘Store Demonstration Mode’. The biggest thing to take from this is the radical change between these two modes. ‘Store Demonstration Mode’ is designed to give the brightest image, but lacks more of those deeps, vibrant contrast ratio, and energy efficiency. To obtain the best picture you’ll want to choose ‘Home Mode’. Similar to adding a filter onto a photo for social media, after selecting a mode, you can still alter and change other specific settings like brightness and contrast for a better viewing experience. Modes There are generally… Read more

It’s easy to get caught in the heat of the moment, standing thrilled at the idea of using a new TV service or a new television, but make sure to slow down enough to read the fine print. Especially when it comes to any contract, you’ll thank yourself later for doing the nitty-gritty work of going through the paperwork. In 2017, a Deloitte study showed that out of the 2,000 consumers participating in the survey, 90% of them accepted legal terms and conditions without reading them. For those who are between the age of 18 and 34, the rate is even higher— 97%! This makes a majority of consumers a more susceptible target for companies, especially when it comes to TV. Here are a few tips and tricks to catch the deception before you’ve signed onto anything. Broadcasting Fees Many companies advertise the best features you can get, and the best price you can get, both of which are displayed together. This is to give the illusion you’ll be getting top-notch specs for the lowest prices on the market when… Read more

We could tell you to simply just use a measuring tape to size up a TV so that it fits on your wall, but whatever happened to a nice aesthetic? Nowadays, most living rooms or family rooms are centered around the TV, so there’s more that goes into an appealing interior design while still making sure you’re getting the best sound and picture quality. It all begins with the purchase of your TV and several considerations should be thought of. Finding the best size for you can be easier said than done, but knowing what to look out for will help you get the optimum measurements. Will My TV Fit in the Room I Want It In? This is probably the most obvious question to ask yourself. You’ll need to decide where in the room you’ll want the TV, and then measure the height, width, and depth of that spot. Limitations may present themselves if you’re stuck with minimal wall space or a smaller entertainment center. Mounting the television on a wall isn’t always preferred, so you’ll need to use… Read more

Who knew cable bills could be such a large contributor towards your monthly expenses? You’ve had enough, and you’re almost at the edge of just completely cutting the cord. Almost. Before giving up on your entertainment, we’ll go through a few ways that will help get you the best deal for your money when it comes to cable providers. Know the competition Dig deep when researching other companies. Look at the prices, the details of each package, their contract lengths and terms, and channel variety. All of this can be used as leverage when calling your cable company to negotiate your bill. You won’t get anywhere by just calling the reps and haggling them. You’ll want to present backup solutions you’ve already looked into to show them you’re knowledgeable and serious about getting the best deal. Finding the right competitor is important as well. DISH’s main competitor is DIRECTV. Before calling DISH, check up on current DIRECTV packages and offers. You can then use them as leverage when asking for a better price, and vice versa. Xfinity is widely available, so… Read more

In the midst of a cord-cutting battle, it seems TV programming companies have been struggling to keep their heads above the water. Contrary to this speculation, cable companies have actually been able to come up with multiple ways to maintain their loyalty and, at least, hold up in combat. Launching their own streaming service Many traditional TV networks have threatened to launch their own streaming service, including Viacom. As the owner of Comedy Central, MTV, and Nickelodeon, Viacom announced the launching of their own streaming service by end of this year. The direct-to-consumer streaming service will be complete with more than enough content for viewers in the U.S. Even Discovery seems to be getting their hands in the online streaming industry. No deadlines or prices have been released, but since their merger with Scripps, Discovery has definitely been playing around with the idea. Now with Scripps, the company operates and provides most of the top popular content for 22-25% of women in the U.S. A few of the channels include HGTV, Food Network, and TLC. If that doesn’t drive customers… Read more
