If you’re making a last minute bid to steal guests from competing Super Bowl parties, Samsung has an intriguing deal for you. For a limited time, in the lead-up to the big game, consumers that purchase a Samsung ES7500 or ES8000 LED TV, will can get a HW-E450 Sound Bar for free.

Both televisions involved in the promotion are full-featured Smart units, and when we reviewed the ES8000, we came away very impressed. That said, price point was probably the biggest difference between it and its little brother (the ES7500), which is also an attractive buy. Both of these TVs would be worthy purchases on their own, but throw in a $350 sound bar just for kicks, and now we’re really talking.

The 2.1-channel HW-E450 Sound Bar features Bluetooth, USB 2.0, and HDMI connectivity options, and is capable of a hefty 280 watts total audio output; more than enough to rattle your walls when the crowd erupts. Pair that with either television mentioned above and you’ve got the beginnings of a respectable home theater system.

Now, if only Samsung could offer your favorite team a ticket to New Orleans.

The 10 most popular streaming services, ranked by subscriber count
The Netflix home screen.

Let's start this with a caveat or two: If you're going to compare streaming services merely by the number of subscribers they have, it's not exactly a fair fight. Not all services are available in the same places. Nor does the number of subscribers really address the "worth" of a streaming service. Or whether it's easy to use, or if the apps are any good. Or, for that matter, if a given streaming service has what you want to watch, which really is the only measure necessary.

Still, it's interesting to keep up with how things are doing from a global perspective, especially when you have relatively young upstarts like Apple TV+ gaining so many accolades in an industry dominated by Netflix.

What is HDR TV? High dynamic range and why you need it
A Sony Bravia A80K 4K TV sits on a table in front of a large window.

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, is a TV spec you've undoubtedly seen in your TV's settings or while shopping for a new TV, and we're willing to bet that if you're here, you're wondering what the heck HDR is. HDR can be found in pretty much all of today's best TVs, from 8K to 4K to HDTVs, and in TVs across a wide range of price points -- HDR has become standard in most new mid-range and high-end televisions.

But what is it? When viewing TV, movies, video games, sports, or other content displayed in HDR, an HDR-capable TV will deliver extra-brilliant brightness levels, ultra-rich colors, an expanded color palette, and higher contrast.
