TV accessories for gift giving

Looking for a family gift this year? A new TV is always a good gift, but so are TV and home theatre accessories. These little additions to your living room or dedicated home theatre can make your movie nights or gaming sessions a lot more fun. Here are some TV accessories your family will love.

Media streaming for the whole family

If you don’t have a smart TV and you’d like a way to stream your favourite apps, a media streamer is one of the most helpful TV accessories you’ll find. Even if you do have a smart TV, you’ll find different media streamers all have something unique to offer. There are hundreds of cool channels with exclusive content you can only get from that brand of media streamer.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max

The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max takes your TV to the next level with streaming 4K content. You can stream all of your favourite movies and TV shows in 4K Ultra HD, and it supports Dolby Vision, HDR 10+, and Dolby Atmos audio too. With 16GB storage capacity, a lightning fast processor, and Wi-Fi 6E, you’ll be able to pick and choose from 70,000 movies and TV episodes and never experience a second of downtime. Fire TV even offers you 2000 pieces of art and photography you can display on your TV when you’re not watching.

Apple TV offers exclusive Apple content

The latest Apple TV lets you tap into 4K Dolby Vision and HDR10+ content and gives you access to exclusive Apple content via the Apple TV+ streaming channel. You can add Netflix, YouTube, and other streaming channels too. One of the most exciting parts of having an Apple TV is access to Apple Arcade and Apple Fitness. You can work out using your Apple Watch or play games with the entire family on Apple Arcade.

Give a gift for your home theatre

There are all different kinds of home theatres. You may have a dedicated room with big screen TV, sound bar, and speakers, or a decked out living room with TV, wireless audio, and the perfect sound set up. No matter what type of home theatre your gift recipient has, everyone appreciates fun gifts that elevate their TV and sound system.

Sony Blu-Ray player

Streaming is great, but it’s hard to top the cinematic quality of a Blu-ray disc. The Sony Blu-ray player offers stunning 4K video with upscaling. With Dolby Vision, HDR 10, and clear, defined HD audio, the Sony Blu-ray player will add a cinematic quality to every living room. It has both Wi-Fi and a wired internet connection so you can stream too, and it even supports 3D video so you can watch the most lifelike video right from the comfort of your couch.

Wireless room audio as a gift

Sharp 5 disc with Bluetooth

Music has the power to instantly change the mood in a room. You can stream your playlists or share your music with family members when you add a wireless speaker. Take the JBL Authentics 200 wireless multi-room speaker for example. It’s got a great retro 70’s design with Quadrex grille, but it’s also a modern Wi-Fi speaker with 25mm tweeters for soaring highs, a 5-inch woofer, and down firing 6-inch passive radiator for the deepest bass hits. You can pair a few speakers together to create whole home audio and stream your favourite playlists from Spotify or Apple music.

If your gift recipient loves the retro style but really wants to be able to play CDs, the Sharp XL-BH250 5 disc micro system with Bluetooth could be the perfect gift. It’s a classic Boombox with a built in 5-disc player so they can enjoy their CD collection. It also has a digital AM/FM radio tuner with 40 presets, integrated USB ports, and integrated Bluetooth so they can stream from their phone.
