This episode tackles one of our very favorite subjects: TV! But we're not talking about how to choose a cheap one; that's something we addressed back in October:

No, this time we want to help you improve your viewing experience. That means not only reconsidering your sound options, but also adjusting certain TV settings, adding strategic accessories and more. There's a very good chance we've got some tips in here you hadn't considered before.

Meanwhile, Amazfit is at it again with another sweet smartwatch that seems impossibly inexpensive. And don't miss out on Epic's latest game giveaway, which kicks off Thursday, Jan. 14.
