#468 - We're back and it's a very different start to the year
The blokes aren't on a plane, not packing, not in Las Vegas, it's a very very strange start to the year. But CES is happening, albeit virtually, so we've got the news coming out before CES to run you through. Samsung announces huge MicroLED TVs, as well as Neo QLED TVs with Mini LED backlighting - and a really awesome Computer Monitor with a difference. Hisense announce their first 8K TVs with a 75 incher launching first, plus updates to their OS and the launch of Kayo.
