Since 2004, Scarsdale, NY-based retailer Value Electronics has produced an ambitious annual event: a competitive shootout among the flagship televisions from the likes of LG, Samsung, Sony, and other major manufacturers to determine which one is the best of the best: the “King of TVs.” The only break in that tradition was in 2020, when the event had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.
This year, the Value Electronics TV Shootout is back, bigger and better than ever. Of course, the pandemic is far from over, so there will be no live audience as in years past. Only the calibrators, judges, and a few YouTube-based tech hosts will be in attendance. But that doesn’t mean you can’t observe the proceedings—the entire two-day event will be live streamed on Sunday, Sept. 12, and Monday, Sept. 13; I’ll provide the links at the end of this article.
