Before analog TV broadcasting bit the dust, portable TVs were often seen at a tailgate party or picnic, on a beach blanket or in the backyard. With the switch to digital broadcasting, set owners may as well use them as doorstops. Now, outdoor viewing is back with portable DTVs. With a digital tuner, antenna and rechargeable battery, a portable LCD TV takes advantage of free DTV channels in the air.
You'll typically use a new TV for the better part of a decade, so even if you're skeptical about 3D, you could well change your mind. That's one reason Sony is offering models that can be easily turned fully 3D with an optional emitter. The KDL-HX800 series in 40-, 46- and 55-inch screen sizes is ready to extend the picture to the tip of your nose when you decide the time is right for 3D.
Getting started with 3D requires more than the TV. To see depth you need 3D glasses, and to be sociable, more than one pair. You may also opt for a 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc player. So, you can see why a bundle is a good thing. B&H has assembled 30 kits involving 3D TVs in different series and screen sizes. Grab a bundle by July 3, and you'll save $300 off the regular price.
One of the best sites for catching up with your favorite TV series whenever you want is moving beyond computers to TV sets and Blu-ray Disc players. If you already own certain 2010 models from Samsung, you may be able to download an upgrade enabling free Hulu sample content and an invitation to subscribe to the new Hulu Plus service. If you're shopping for a set, BD player or theater system, Internet-connected Samsung models just became more fetching.
On June 12, 2009, Americans watching over-the-air TV using a conventional set without a digital-to-analog converter box flash-forwarded into a world without reception. The DTV Age had begun in earnest as terrestrial broadcasts were now sent exclusively as digital pulses instead of analog waves. There was plenty of warning and even a $1.5 billion government-funded coupon program, now ended, for buying converters, yet some people didn't get the message.
Fitting an HDTV set into a tight space is no problem with Samsung's 22-inch UN22C4000 LED-LCD. Since the 720p display is only 1.2-inches thick and weighs just 8.4 pounds, it can be easily mounted on a wall. You're more likely to use the stand, but even then the set's entire depth will be only 7.5-inches. So, you can place the TV virtually anywhere in your home.
