Chinese OLED TVs are on the way, could drive prices down

Chinese panel manufacturer BOE has joined forces with TV maker Skyworth to produce an OLED TV.

LG is currently the market leader in OLED production, but the deal means that Skyworth – which used to rely on LG for its panels – can now determine its own prices.

Skyworth could potentially undercut LG and bring OLED prices tumbling down. We'll see whether this is the case next year when its OLED set goes on sale in China and Europe.

Here are the new Sky Q features coming in 2017

Award-winning TV service Sky Q is set to get a number of new features, giving viewers more access and control.

Owners of the 2TB box will soon be able to record six channels while watching a seventh (up from four and five).

New show recommendations will be based on a viewer's history, and if you join a sports event midway through you can watch from the beginning thanks to the Start Over feature.

4K HDR TV broadcasts could go live by 2017

The Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) steering board has added new specifications to the UHD standard.

They include HDR, frame rates of more than 50/60fps and immersive sound experiences such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

The board suggested that this standard could come to fruition next year… as long as hardware manufacturers and broadcasters adopt it.

"The Philips M2L headphones are one of the best pairs of Lightning headphones we’ve heard"

Philips Fidelio M2L

The Fidelio M2L Lightning headphones came out in 2015 and despite the increased competition, they're still the best Lightning headphones we've heard.

The sound is exciting and detailed, with a strong sense of timing and impressive dynamics. However, the cable lacks flexibility and can't be swapped out for a 3.5mm connection.

Even so, this is a fantastic effort. If you're an Apple user and aren't tempted by wireless, these are a fine solution.

"For first time console-buyers or gamers wanting to upgrade from the PS4, the PS4 Pro is a solid choice"

Sony PS4 Pro

Sony's revision of the PS4 has given it more horsepower for 4K gaming, although that comes with a caveat - many titles are not upscaled to 4K.

On upscaled games, the result is undeniably impressive, but elsewhere the 4K options are limited. There's no UHD drive for 4K Blu-rays and the streaming apps are lacking some, if not all, 4K-releated features.

We expect these to be updated soon, but in the meantime, the Pro is a fine upgrade on the original and further ahead of the Xbox One S in performance.

"If you’re looking for an impressive stationary speaker, we can’t see a reason why you’d shy away from the T5"

Audio Pro Addon T5

Audio Pro's latest entry in the Addon family is bigger than the award-winning T3 and every bit as good.

It doesn't have the T3's portability, but it does have great dynamics and a sound that's expressive and well balanced.

If you're in the market for a wireless speaker, we'd be hard-pressed not to recommend the T5.
