As any film nerd will tell you, what TV you watch movies on matters. So if you’re going to pass on going to the movie theater, you’ll want to make sure you have a quality TV set at home that’s just as good. And you’ll definitely want one that can show 4K video content in all its glory.

When it comes to watching movies and TV shows in glorious full definition, a 4K TV is one of the best options because of its resolution. It’s superior to 1080p TVs in that its horizontal display resolution is about 4,000 pixels—about four times that of the former. The result is noticeable and will make films look much sharper.

But while all 4K TVs have a resolution quality in common, they’re not all the same. Depending on how much space you want to dedicate

7 Exciting New Horror Movies You Can Stream at Home This Weekend

October is horror movie season, but there’s no reason to watch “Hocus Pocus” for the umpteenth time when there are newer offerings available. This year, several of the major horror film festivals across the U.S. were forced to cancel their physical gatherings, but they’ve joined forces to create a single virtual festival event loaded with promising new work from around the world. Running October 8 – 11, Nightstream represents the collaborative programming efforts of Boston Underground, Brooklyn Horror, Overlook, the North Bend Film Festival, and Popcorn Frights Festival. The supersized curatorial undertaking has yielded an international lineup of genre efforts that include some favorites from earlier the festival season as well as many discoveries.

Launching as New York Film Festival’s virtual edition winds down, Nightstream is another example of ongoing efforts to replicate the festival experience in these stay-at-home times. The program opens Thursday with the world premiere of the

New technology allows cancer patients to watch movies during radiation

AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — No matter the age, radiation treatment can be tough on any cancer patient. Which is why UCHealth helped develop a special piece of technology to help reduce anxiety and stress associated with it.

The technology is called ‘RadFlix’ and it allows patients to safely watch their favorite TV shows and movies all while undergoing radiation.

“This can be a very traumatic experience for these kids,” said Dr. Douglas Holt, the Chief Resident radiation oncologist with the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

Holt helped develop the device. It’s a radiation compatible, video distraction system that can be used with any type of radiation treatment.

“That’s important because it’s very technically challenging to do that in radiation,” Holt said.

Not only is it convenient for a patient to watch TV or a movie on ‘RadFlix’ while undergoing radiation therapy, but it also helps them cut down on the

Netflix update makes it easier to find brand new shows and movies

Netflix update

  • Netflix has added a new tab called “New & Popular” to its connected TV app that focuses on the biggest current and upcoming titles on the service.
  • Netflix’s New & Popular tab has an all-new section called “Worth the Wait” that includes movies, shows, and specials that are up to 365 days from being released.
  • Netflix plans to start testing this new tab on the web before the end of the year.

One of Netflix’s persistent problems is that unless you know exactly what you watch to watch,  you might spend hours scrolling through menus. That’s not to say that it’s hard to find content relevant to your interests, but the home screen of the app can be overwhelming. Making matter worse is the fact that Netflix has always struggled to split its content up into easily-identifiable categories, but perhaps the latest update —

When Apple launched the Apple TV 4K streaming box and first announced support for 4K and HDR in the iTunes movie store back in 2017, it had managed to sign up most major studios. But there was one holdout in terms of offering its catalog in UltraHD: Disney.

For three years, users in Apple’s ecosystem had to settle for 1080p HD to watch, say, the Marvel movies or Pixar animated films. Today, it looks like that’s changing in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. A plethora of Disney-made films inclusive of numerous Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and Walt Disney Studios animated films are available in Apple’s storefront in both 4K and Dolby Vision HDR. They also support Dolby Atmos audio.

Examples include Star Wars:

‘On the Rocks,’ ‘The Glorias’: Movies to Watch This Week

Thursday’s news that President Trump and several in his orbit have tested positive for coronavirus should probably give one pause before heading to cinemas this weekend — or anytime soon. This thing is contagious, people! And I say that as someone who got COVID-19 myself during an early March trip to Broadway.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t need cinematic distractions, and American distributors continue to deliver. I’ll be headed to the Mission Tiki Drive-in tonight to attend a Beyond Fest double feature. (The venue has four screens, and Sofia Coppola-Bill Murray reunion “On the Rocks” just opened on one of them.)

China closed its theaters long before the U.S., and they’ve reopened them earlier as well, which explains why it has taken this long to get what was supposed to be a major blockbuster timed to the Chinese New Year: “Jiang Ziya,” from the animation studio responsible for “Ne

Netflix: Best new movies

  • Netflix is adding a ton of content to its streaming service in October, but these are the best new movies and shows we think you should add to your queue this month.
  • The Haunting of Bly Manor is a direct follow-up to Hill House, from the same creator and with some of the same stars, but featuring an entirely new story and location.
  • Fresh off its Emmy wins, the final season of Schitt’s Creek is also coming to Netflix this month.

With winter approaching (and potentially a second wave of the coronavirus), many of us are probably going to start spending a lot more time indoors over the next few months. Thankfully, Netflix will continue pumping out new originals throughout 2020, and October is an especially exciting month, as The Haunting of Hill House will get a sequel series, a new
