Prima Cinema

The holy grail of at-home movie watching is nearly here. Prima Cinema ($35,000) is an elite service that brings current-release movies directly to your home on the day they're released — at the equally elite price of $500 a pop. The rack-mountable player automatically downloads the movies and presents them over HDMI with clarity and color accuracy unmatched by even Blu-ray, along with lossless PCM or Dolby TrueHD audio output. Oh, and the biometric security protection ensures no guests "accidentally" drop half a grand on dreck like Red Dawn. [Scouted by Graham]

  • DirecTV Genie

    Ever wonder why you need a DVR in every room? So did the people at DirecTV. The result is the DirecTV Genie ($TBA), a whole home solution for TV viewing. This crazy box can record up to five shows in full HD simultaneously, lets you pause, rewind, record, and delete shows from any room, recommends new shows based on the ones you already watch, and offers 200 hours of HD storage — so you don't need to worry about running out of room due to a Honey Boo Boo marathon.

  • Slingbox 350 & 500

    Yes, there are plenty of apps that can give you access to some of your content away from home — but if you want real-time access to all of it, the Slingbox 350 & 500 ($180-$300) can help. Both boxes offer support for placeshifting video in up to 1080p quality and integrated IR emitters for controlling set-top boxes, but while the 350 gets its Internet connection over Ethernet and connects to video sources via component or composite, the 500 boasts built-in Wi-Fi, HDMI input/output, and offers SlingProjector technology for wirelessly sharing media from a smartphone or tablet on the TV. Either way, prepare to answer some questions from curious houseguests, as neither sports a particularly subdued design.
