Synopsis: This week on the podcast, as the title suggests, is 4K TV a mess? Let’s start with Apple 4K TV, a largely expensive media box that is on average twice as much as competing products.
For decades consumers have been used to paying a premium for Apple products, and they’ve largely been okay with it. But, TV is a different and unique market. Can the Apple TV stand the test of time at its $150+ price range? There’s no way to know for certain, but gosh, it’s difficult to think it could. And what gives with the 4K content promised to us? Is a tipping point coming soon where we can largely rely on a 4K version of our favourite movie or TV show, much like how the Blu-Ray format has become now.
And lastly, we begin by wetting your palate with the release of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic. Yes, that’s right, it’s back in albeit miniaturized form factor. Stay tuned for that discussion and more, that’s coming up next on The Impromptu.
