That’s because Ultra HD boasts four times the resolution of that 1080p HDTV in your living room.

But seeing is believing. That’s why Best Buy is welcoming customers to experience just how stellar 4K/Ultra HD TV with tutorials at 50 stores nationwide over 13-straight weeks this fall in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.

Rotating each week, experts from LG, Samsung and Sony will lead the interactive tutorials from 11 a.m.

23 May: It’s a Home Entertainment Makeover for Two Members of the Navy, Thanks to Operation Gratitude and Best Buy

While deployed on the seas of the Middle East aboard the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier, Kody Oldham and his wife, Kyla, had been diligently saving so the young couple could splurge on a home entertainment system when Kody returned home to Chesapeake, Va.

But Operation Gratitude and the Best Buy Military Employee Business Network took care of that for them last week, coincidentally just days before Memorial Day.

The Navy Operations Specialist was the 1,000,001st recipient of an Operation Gratitude care package.

Recycling

22 Apr: Stop by Best Buy on Earth Day. We’ll All Be Better for It.

By Scott Weislow

In the roughly 20 minutes that it takes me to write this, Best Buy will recycle 8,000 pounds of electronics. That’s four tons – the bulk of an adult rhino.
