Will Black Friday bring a new TV into the house?

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Will Black Friday bring a new TV into your family room?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Consumer Electronics companies will be offering some great deals on Black Friday and beyond.   LG Electronics VP John Taylor…

“Well Black Friday has become more than just a day.  It’s a week or two week long extravaganza to kick off the holiday selling season.  And this year is going to be a big year for 4K Ultra HD TV.  They’re already much more affordable than they were last year at this time and a lot more screen sizes.”

Beyond screen size…now you have a choice of screen shape…with LG and others offering curved as well as flat screens.    And while consumers have been rightly concerned about whether there’s enough 4K content to watch…streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Video are helping to solve that problem.  And the industry has settled on standards for new 4K Blu-ray DVDs….which should arrive on the market next year.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
