Who else gets TV envy when they walk into a JB store? The television department is like the Death Star’s tractor beam in Star Wars. It doesn’t matter what part of the store you inhabit, the magnetism of those giant walls of flickering imagery is irresistible.

It’s a dangerous place to be and before you know it, the “I’ll just look at what’s new” swiftly progresses to “That’s not a bad price” and thus begins the deadly internal discussion: “I do watch a lot of films and play games, so I really do deserve an upgrade”. By this stage you’ve either been dragged out of the shop by your partner, or you’re arranging a delivery and installation date for your spanking new television!

TV technology and design is constantly evolving, and it doesn’t take long to get left behind. This month in Life Tech we take a look at what’s new in the TV space, select models to match your viewing habits and budgets, decipher the baffling tech terminology, and highlight the exciting lifestyle TVs changing the look and the way we see TVs in our homes. So, pull up a chair.
