And here you thought your 60-inch LED TV was cool. These new LG Cinema 3D Smart TVs ($TBA) up the home entertainment ante with a 55-inch OLED model and a monstrous 84-inch UD model that sports a crazy 3840x2160 panel, ensuring it'll be useful for years to come. Other features include bezels as little as 1mm (!), access to over 1,200 apps, newly redesigned 3D glasses, and supermodel-thin bodies.
Considering all the other things we've seen reduced to stick form, it's no surprise that the Roku Streaming Stick ($TBA) looks ready to make that not-so-smart TV of yours a lot more useful with a minimal amount of fuss. Resembling a USB thumb drive, the streaming stick packs Wi-Fi, a processor, memory, and specialized software into a tiny enclosure that connects directly to the MHL-enabled HDMI ports on modern TVs, ensuring up-to-date software and access to services like Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, and Pandora long after you've upgraded your set.
For anyone thinking of cutting the cord with their cable company, losing out on live broadcasts is often the number one thing holding them back. Boxee Live TV ($50) aims to bridge this gap by connecting the Boxee Box to an HDTV antenna or unencrypted cable connection, giving you access to local broadcast stations, and replacing the typical, boring guide with a friendly show-finding interface that lets you receive recommendations from friends, and even remove channels that you never watch.
