Imagine having the newest television, a Samsung 8K television, with a vibrant, amazing 65 inch screen, on a wall in your home. Imagine! After we published an announcement article about this television, one reader quickly commented at the bottom of that page, “Whoa!” That sums it up! I can’t believe that we are able to offer one of these as a contest prize at Best Buy. Samsung is so innovative to create this TV and so generous to send us one to give away on the blog! Read below to learn why I am beyond breathless with excitement about this contest, and to learn how to enter for your chance to win this fantastic television.
My favourite features in the Samsung QLED 8K TV
There are too many marvelous new features in this television to put in a short contest announcement article like this; so, I want to focus on my favourite three features: 8K upscaling, built-in intelligence, and Ambient Mode.
Upscaling technology takes all content to a new level
If I had this television, the first thing I’d watch is the first Harry Potter movie. Seriously. My DVD copy isn’t even widescreen! This would be the ultimate test of the new upscaling technology. Samsung says this television uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to upscale “4K or lower resolution content to appear in stunning near-8K quality for improved details, sharpened edges and reduced noise.” Of course, I also could not wait to see the newest Avengers: Endgame on this huge incredible screen too. What would you watch first to see how different it will be in 8K?
Smart Samsung TV
My current TV is quite dumb. I have to connect multiple steaming boxes for it to mildly resemble a smart TV. In comparison, this Samsung TV is Einstein-like. First of all, it has an “Intelligence Mode” that senses lighting and audio in the room to adjust brightness and volume. So you’ll hear voices over the background without having to touch the remote. Of course, it couldn’t claim to be smart if it wasn’t also flexible: you can control it with the remote, or with Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby, or with a Google Assistant, or with Amazon’s Alexa—even using Airplay 2. Basically everything my streaming boxes—all of them—can do, it can do better!
And the Tizen operating system puts all of your favourite content right where you can most easily access it. That includes the channels that I watch most often, Netflix and Prime Video. Can you see now why I am so excited about this prize?
A television that impresses even when turned off
Walk into my living room, and there on the wall is a big black hole of bleak nothingness. I put up with this unaesthetic, monstrous, peek into the dark recesses of an empty shell for what it can do when turned on. Samsung decided that they can do better. Enter Ambient Mode. This is by far my favourite feature of Samsung’s new televisions. Look at the image on the left for a glimpse of what it can do; see how it blends into the background of the wall behind it! Such a brilliant idea!
With Ambiant Mode, when you turn off your TV it displays an image of the wall behind, or a family photo … Think of the possibilities! No more blackness on a major wall of your room. Put art there; put your child’s baby photo, or a funny pic of your pet. Your TV can now express your personality, your life, even when it’s not entertaining you with a movie.
Samsung 8K televisions are superior
It’s an undeniable fact. Some televisions are better than others. Some televisions deliver a better audio-visual experience simply because they are a better product. And who doesn’t want a better movie experience, better sports experience, and better all-round television in their own homes? Do you? Carefully follow the instructions below and you might have this fabulous Samsung QLED 8K television in your home very soon.
HOW TO ENTER
Entering this contest is easy, but you can only enter once. I told you what my favourite feature is of this television. To enter this contest, you must:
- Share (either on social media, in an email, or in person) what your favourite feature of this new Samsung 8K television is, and
- Tell us in a comment below this article what your favourite feature is and how you told others about it.
So, a valid entry will have both of those pieces of information. For example, if I was entering this contest I’d put this in a comment below, “I told people about Ambient Mode in an article on the Best Buy Blog.”
WHAT YOU CAN WIN
At the end of this contest, one valid entry will be selected and that person will win a Samsung 65″ 8K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV.
This contest will run from April 12th until May 5th.
Remember you can only enter once. However, this is a big contest, with a big prize that you really don’t want to keep quiet about. It’s an 8K TV! Tell your friends and family.
