Are you excited about your television? I remember when I first got a flat screen TV: I was really excited. But that excitement faded and now that same television is just old tech that does mostly what it should. So, my answer to that questions would have to be NO.
Recently Pat Bugos of Samsung posted an article on Best Buy’s blog about how excited he and his son were with their new SUHD television from Samsung. In that article he pointed out some of the amazing new features found in Samsung’s SUHD televisions. He mentions the huge improvements that have been made in picture quality, due to Samsung’s nano-crystal technology. The SUHD picture delivers more, brighter colours, and deeper blacks than ever before.
He also mentions that beyond bringing to life the incredible 4K content that is available, it will make your old DVDs and Blu-rays look new again due to the SUHDs ability to upscale HD content. I have lots of DVDs and I’d love to see some of those movies get a virtual facelift, simply because I bought the right television.
However, I wouldn’t buy a new TV today unless it delivered more than just television content. Samsung’s SUHD certainly does that! It has the Tizen operating system delivering content options now and long into the future.
I have only touched on some of the new features that Samsung SUHD televisions have to offer. I’m sure there are many people who’d like to learn more, or who have specific questions to ask about these great new TVs.
Samsung will help you to learn more about their SUHD televisions by participating in a Twitter party hosted by Best Buy. Log in to Twitter on July 9th and follow Best Buy Canada’s #SeeMoreFeelMore discussion, and participate. You will be able to ask questions for Samsung to answer.
