How to Watch the 2018 Olympics in 4K/Ultra HD with HDR on DISH Network

In the early days of High Definition, the Olympics were one of those special occasions that really shined in the new higher resolution digital broadcast format. And now in the age of 4K Ultra High Definition, it's time for the Olympics to step up their game as well.

DISH Announced this week that it will offer select coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in 4K Ultra HD resolution with HDR (High Dynamic Range) support. What better way to show off your new 4K OLED, QLED or LED TV than with the Olympics Opening Ceremony or Snowboarding action in true 4K resolution with HDR? All those beautiful pixels! There's a catch, though. The 4K coverage will be delayed one day from the standard HD broadcasts, so keep off of social media and don't watch the news if you don't want any medal spoilers.

In order to watch the Olympics in 4K on DISH, you'll need a compatible set top box (Dish Hopper 3), then you can tune into the dedicated 4K Olympics channel: Channel 540. 4K HDR coverage will include footage from the Opening Ceremony, figure skating, hockey, short track speed skating, ski jumping, and snowboard big air, as well as scenic video snippets from PyeongChang, South Korea and the surrounding area.

Up to three events from the previous days' competition schedule will be provided in 4K resolution daily on DISH channel 540 from Feb. 10, the day after the Opening Ceremony, through Feb. 26, the day after the Games conclude.
So, to sum up:
  • Make sure you have a Hopper 3 DVR from DISH
  • Make sure you have a 4K/HDR-capable TV connected to your DISH receiver via high speed HDMI cable
  • Tune in to DISH Channel 540
  • Bask in that 4K/HDR video glory
The 2018 Winter Olympics (Winter Olympiad XXIII) are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea from February 9 to February 25, 2018 and are being broadcast on NBCUniversal Networks.  In addition to the 4K/DHR coverage, DISH is partnering with NBCUniversal to offer over 2,400 hours of Olympics coverage, live and on-demand. They're even offering an app to help guide you through all this  coverage.

You can find out more about DISH coverage of the Winter Olympics here on their blog.

Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Show Latest News

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series has been quiet on the news front for the past few months but we're starting to some details emerge for the highly anticipated show.
For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
