Apple Plans TV Channel Bundle?

Apple Plans TV Channel Bundle?

Apple still hasn't given up on the pay TV dream, ReCode reports-- apparently the iPhone maker plans to start selling a premium TV bundle featuring HBO, Showtime and Starz for a single price.

Apple already offers the three channels individually, but it reportedly has approached the 3 networks for rolling them into a single package, as conventional pay TV operators sometimes do. However, unlike pay TV operators, Apple might sell the bundle as a standalone product (rather than as part of a subscription with other TV channels) delivered via iDevices, including the Apple TV.

ReCode adds Apple still has to reach a bundle deal with the premium networks, and no comment is available from HBO, Showtime or Starz, not to mention Apple itself.

Samsung Details The Frame TV

The Samsung 2017 TV lineup has a curious addition reminiscent of a relic from the (relatively recent) past-- The Frame is a TV doubling as a picture frame, much like the digital photo frames from the pre-iPad era.

The result of a collaboration with famed industrial designer Yves Behar, The Frame even has an Art Mode where it displays over 100 pieces of art when not in use as a regular TV. It is designed to be hanged flush against walls, and for such purposes Samsung supplies a new gapless wall mount and an "Invisible Connection," single optical cable handling all connectivity.

Further details on The Frame, including size, are not available as yet. What Samsung does detail is its upcoming selection of QLED TVs, with options ranging from the 55-inch Q7 to the 75-inch Q8. All offer quantum dot technology, the OLED alternative Samsung insists offers a wider colour range (100% colour volume according to Verband Deutscher Elektrotechnieker) as well as higher brightness levels and deeper blacks.

Mobile World Congress 2017 has Sony unveil a surprise device-- the Xperia Touch is an Android-powered projector able to turn any surface into a touchscreen while acting as a digital hub of sorts.

The idea is family members input events and leave notes on the interface for all to see, turning it into a digital notice board for the home. Google Assistant provides voice control, and the built-in battery promises around 1 hour of use on a single charge.

The projector also carries a 13MP camera and speakers, allowing it to handle Skype video chats, while SXRD projection technology detects gestures and taps. Maximum projection sizes reaches 80-inch at 1366 x 768 resolution, and images can be projected on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.
