All Samsung 2015 Smart TVs to be powered by Tizen

All Samsung 2015 Smart TVs to be powered by Tizen

While we await Samsung's first Tizen-powered smartphone, perhaps more out of curiosity than excitement, the Korean OEM is pushing with its Tizen thrust on another, less risky product line. The company has announced that its whole roster of Smart TVs for 2015 will be running the open source platform that was designed from the ground up for mobile and embedded devices. This Tizen integration will, according to Samsung, offer both app developers and users the same opportunities to develop and consume content that they have come to expect from today's smart devices.

PlayStation Now to feature in Samsung Smart TV 2015 lineup

PlayStation Now to feature in Samsung Smart TV 2015 lineup

In a rather surprising move, Sony has teamed up with Samsung to make the PlayStation Now game streaming/rental service available to Samsung's upcoming roster of Smart TVs next year. This will indeed spread Sony's gaming ecosystem beyond its consoles and into the realm of Smart TVs, giving those without a PS4 or PS3 in their homes access to Sony's wide range of games, mostly from the PS3 generation. On the other hand, it could also give buyers less incentive to buy a Sony Smart TV.

Comcast launches Xfinity in UHD for Samsung 2014 models

Comcast launches Xfinity in UHD for Samsung 2014 models

When UHD TVs started appearing at tech events this year, one of the biggest criticisms of the new trend is that while hardware is definitely capable and tempting, there is a lack of content that takes advantage of the considerably higher pixel count. In short, there is still a lack of UHD content for these UHD TVs. Seeking to fill in that gap, Comcast has just launched a new app called Xfinity in UHD, designed to bring in UHD content for 2014 Samsung UHD TVs.

Sony Android TVs to come in February 2015

Android TV, the successor of the somewhat stillborn Google TV, is barely a few months in the market, and yet some true believers are already lining up to take the platform under their wings. One of those is Sony, who courageously announced (or Google announced for them) that its entire HD and 4K Smart TV lineup next year will have Android TV in tow. But what does that exactly mean for the user experience? Some Sony insiders reveals some hints on how Sony's Android TVs will behave when they arrive.

Nokia: What’s in the box?

Nokia: What’s in the box?

Tomorrow Nokia is set to have an event. They're going to reveal something that either is inside a box like you see here, or IS the box itself. If it IS the box, we're likely looking at something for the living room. Something like a smart TV box that'll take on the likes of Apple TV and Amazon's Fire TV. If it's just a box - very possible - then it's going to be something mobile. Think about Maps, think about Android, think about strange stuff you'd not have expected Nokia brand - not Microsoft - to attempt.

Which phones let me control any TV?

Which phones let me control any TV?

There’s no one phone that’s able to control every single television model in the universe - but there are several out there today that have big potential for chaos. While we don’t recommend going around changing channels on televisions that belong to high-powered businesses that’d rip your head of if you do, we do like the idea of changing the channel at a party if something less-than-pleasing pops up.
