We’ve got you covered at CES 2017

With the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show beginning Thursday, BEST Apple TV has got you covered when it comes to hardware, software, programming and more for your Apple TV.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is an annual trade show coordinated by the Consumer Technology Association. It was first held in June 1967 in New York City and had 100+ exhibitors and 17,500 attendees. Since then, it has evolved into once-a-year-event in Las Vegas, NV. Over 170,000 people will attend this year’s show, walking over 2.5 million square feet to see a whopping 3,800 exhibitors.

Here at BEST Apple TV, we’ll be cutting through the clutter and concentrating on those things of importance to Apple TV users. Although Apple has never exhibited at CES, they’re well-represented by the Apple-related products of myriad third-party developers. We’ll be scouring the show for these products and other trends, including:

  • New technologies making TV big, brighter and better. Everything from the highly-touted OLED TVs from LG, LCD TVs, 4K resolution, HDR technology and TVs with built-in streaming.
  • Game controllers from wired to wireless. They’ll be a handful of new game controllers debuting at CES 2017, including ones from Kanex.
  • New programming. CES is not just about hardware, it as much about programming as well. Sling, SelectTV, Sony, and individual content creators like Cartoon Network will be on hand to discuss new updates to their products that can be accessed on Apple TV.
  • And we’ll even throw in a few cool and not-so-Apple-TV-related things as well.

So, it plans to be another big CES, and we’ve got you covered. Watch for our reports daily through Sunday, January 8th.
