Summer is officially upon us.
So while most of the rest of the northern hemisphere is frolicking outdoors or hitting the beach, for us in the Middle East it means only one thing - time to crank up the air conditioning, grab the popcorn and settle in for a couple months of Netflix binge-watching hibernation.
What’s that, you’re still stuck with an old-fashioned HD set? For shame. 4K TVs are cheaper and more accessible than they’ve ever been and, as we see it, you’ve got two choices: cosy up to that work colleague who has more money than sense (you know the one), or diligently pour over our ultimate 4K TV buyer’s guide on p30. Whatever amount you’re looking to spend, we’ve picked out the perfect screen for you.
Once you’ve selected your new telly, you should then flip to p39 and have a peep at our comprehensive list of 25 must-watch 4K shows and movies. They look so sharp that whether you’re a streamer or a disc-buyer, these will make you seriously reconsider your current Blu-ray collection. Of course, if you’re going to dive head-first into the world of ultra high definition, then you’re going to want a 4K screen you can carry around in your pocket. The new Sony Xperia flagship is just that, and we’ve got a full review on p44. Plus, we have the latest and greatest games from this year’s E3 (p18), not least of which saw the unveiling of the Xbox One X (p6), Microsoft’s beefy new, you guessed it, 4K-ready console. Time for an upgrade, you don’t want to be left behind. Enjoy the mag. Mike Priest, Editor firstname.lastname@example.org @MikePriest
