Best 8K TV 2022: Future-proof your home theater


With 4K TVs having been on the market and going mainstream for the better part of a decade, brands like LG, Sony, Samsung, and even TCL have started to release 8K TVs in order to take the next step in home entertainment. An 8K TV gives you four times the resolution of a 4K model and 16 times that of a 1080p HD TV, ensuring that you'll get truly stunning details, contrast, and colors to enhance and future-proof your home theater. Since native 8K content isn't available for streaming or broadcast yet, and probably won't be for the next few years, you'll still be able to get a lot of value out of your new TV with upscaling capabilities to make everything from the hottest Marvel blockbusters to old Hollywood classics look amazing. And if you're a console gamer who has managed to buy an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5, both Microsoft and Sony have stated that their consoles will be able to support native 8K gaming in the future; so if you're willing to dig deep to get the TV of your dreams, an 8K TV is a great way to ensure that your gaming space will be able to keep up with whatever current and future console generations have in store. To help you find the best fit for your budget, space, and entertainment needs, I've gathered five of the best 8K TVs available to buy right now. I've broken down their features so you can find a TV that's almost tailor-made for you.

Apple TV 's Foundation Should Be a Lot Nerdier


The Apple TV series Foundation tells the story of a group of scientists trying to shepherd the galaxy through a centuries-long dark age. Science fiction author Anthony Ha says the series strays a bit too far from its highly intellectual source material, a series of classic novels by Isaac Asimov. And in the show it's really all about individual action, and psychohistory becomes this kind of magic that can predict individual action," Ha says in Episode 503 of the Geek's Guide to the Galaxy podcast. "I understand why they made that change. If you make a show where the hero doesn't matter, individuals don't matter, that is both a bleak and maybe not particularly interesting show, but it did feel like there was a real loss in that adaptation choice." Geek's Guide to the Galaxy host David Barr Kirtley agrees that Foundation often substitutes Hollywood formula for Asimov's more cerebral approach. "Asimov's whole appeal is that you see smart people being rational," he says. "If I wanted to see hot people expressing strong emotions and doing cool athletic stuff, I could watch anything on TV.

The 2021 Apple TV 4K is on sale for $160 right now


The Apple TV 4K has many things going for it, but its relatively high $179 price tag isn't one of them.

While we saw it drop to $150 during the holiday shopping season last year, this is the best price we've seen since then.
