Tech and Entertainment industries are talking about the new entertainment technology and content options. If you’re the average consumer, it’s difficult to keep up with the speed of changing entertainment technology. Just as you saved up enough for a shiny new 3D television set the television itself got an upgrade. The latest tech in TV ditches the 3D glasses and now being offered in 4K resolutions for curved smart televisions. For the content, instead of buying a smart television or a game console, you can get connected through the Roku TV box.

Even in the home, people now have many ways to find their favorite content and watch them on a variety of devices on any budget.
