FuboTV set to stream every game of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in 4K

Soccer fans are about to be treated to the biggest event of the year: The massive, month-long 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup being held in France, from June 7 to July 7. It’s a monster match, with 52 games scheduled between 24 countries. With the U.S. women’s team returning as defending champs, Americans have more reason than ever to watch the action unfold. If you’ve already cut the cord and are now looking for a way to see the games using a live TV streaming service, your best bet is FuboTV. The sports-centric service will be streaming every game of the series in 4K, making it the only online streaming service to do so.

Live 4K streaming is still rare, but FuboTV has been pushing the format hard, especially for its dedicated sports channels. Last year, the company launched its beta of 4K streaming during the men’s 2018 FIFA World Cup, and the beta continues this year with the women’s tournament.

All FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 matches stream on Fox Sports, FS1 and FS2 in 4K Beta on FuboTV. Telemundo’s coverage of every match in Spanish will also be available, though not in 4K. You can check out the full schedule here. In order to stream FuboTV in 4K, you’ll need a subscription (obviously) and one the company’s supported 4K platforms. Fubo will also be streaming select MLB games in 4K this season.

Sports content and 4K are a match made in TV heaven. For sports fans, the ultimate high will always be attending the games in real life, but 4K broadcasts are the next best thing, and they’re considerably more lifelike than 1080p, especially when you add in the blur-reducing effect of 60 frames per second. If you’re not yet equipped with a 4K TV, now’s a good time to buy. Over the last year or so, prices have fallen dramatically for this technology and big screens (55 inches or more) can be had for as little as $500, with picture quality that will amaze you.

Just make sure you’ve got a way to feed that brand new 4K screen with proper 4K content. Most 4K TVs come with built-in apps, but we recommend you consider a 4K streaming device like a Roku Streaming Stick Plus, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, or an Apple TV 4K. Prices range from $60 to $200, but these devices can deliver much more than just movies and TV shows, with thousands of downloadable apps and other content. We think they’re well worth the extra investment.

Finally, though 4K TVs look spectacular, their speakers are still about the same as previous TVs — that is to say, not so great. A home theater soundbar is the easiest and least expensive way to improve your TV’s sound, making it a must-have upgrade for those who want to keep things simple.

New Apple TV 4K tweaks the internals and the price
Apple TV 4K 2022.

Apple today announced a new version of Apple TV 4K. It's the third generation of what we consider to be the best streaming device you can buy, and Apple's not really messing with things too much. Same general design. Same general function. But the internals have been tweaked that allow this 2022 model (which follows the models released in September 2017 and May 2021) to work better with more TVs — and to allow for a little more flexibility in price.

Here are the big deals: There are now two versions of Apple TV 4K (or SKUs, for those of you who prefer inside-baseball terms). There's a model that's Wi-Fi only with 64GB of storage for $130, or a model with Wi-Fi and Ethernet with 128GB of storage for $150. For our money, we'd just go ahead and spend the extra $20.

Optoma’s CinemaX 4K laser projectors now have faster response times for gamers
People using the Optoma CinemaX D2 outdoors.

Optoma is expanding its 4K UHD home theater projector line by introducing the CinemaX D2 Series. Optoma says this is an upgrade from the previous CinemaX P2 projector, and the improvements are based on user feedback. The series includes the CinemaX D2, a 4K UHD ultra short throw laser home projector, and the CinemaX D2 Smart, which adds smart TV features courtesy of an included Android TV dongle.
Ultra short throw projectors are ideal for people with limited space in their room as they can cast an image on the screen from small distances. Traditional short throw projectors need at least four feet to eight feet of distance from the screen to be able to produce high-quality images, but not all rooms have this much area to spare.  That's where ultra short throw projectors can help. The CinemaX D2 Series, for example, can cast up to 100-inch images from less than a foot away from the screen. If you increase the distance a bit more, you get up to 120-inch images. 
The CinemaX D2 Series features 3,000 lumens and a 1,800,000:1 contrast ratio, which, oddly, is a bit of a step down from their predecessor, the CinemaX P2 projector, which offers the same brightness, but with a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio. 

The biggest boost this series offers is an Enhanced Gaming Mode that claims "blur-free visuals and low lag" with the help of its 16ms response time in 4K at 60Hz and 4ms in 1080P at 240Hz. The 30,000-hour life span (same as its predecessor) seems to be slightly higher than other ultra short throw projectors in this price range as well. Both D2 models have three HDMI 2.0 inputs, instead of the P2's double-HDMI 2.0 and single HDMI 1.4 inputs.

This stunning, folding 4K TV now costs 50% less, but you still can’t afford it
C Seed N1 folding 4K MicroLED TV.

MicroLED technology promises to one day give us absolutely huge TV screens at accessible prices. But that day is not today. Instead, it is being used to create some of the most dazzling -- and exorbitantly expensive -- TVs on the planet, like the stunning, folding 4K M1 TV from Austrian brand, C Seed, which will set you back $400,000. But we've got great news for those who simply refuse to spend more than $200,000 on a folding TV: C Seed has just announced the folding 4K N1 TV, which you can add to your home (or superyacht) for the miserly sum of just $190,000.

But just to keep your expectations in check, $190,000 is the starting price for the N1. For that amount, you're looking at the smallest screen size of just 103-inches. It's available in two larger sizes too (137- and 165-inches), but as they say, if you have to ask how much those sizes cost ...
