Verizon partners with Bang & Olufsen on pricey Android TV soundbars

Verizon partnered with Bang & Olufsen on these new soundbars, so they should sound great.

What you need to know

  • Verizon partnered with Bang & Olufsen to create two high-end Stream TV soundbars.
  • The Stream TV Soundbar costs $399.99 and the Stream TV Soundbar Pro costs $999.99.
  • Android TV powers these soundbars with access to all of the latest streaming apps.

Verizon has announced that it has worked together with Bang & Olufsen to create two soundbars featuring its Stream TV. This means customers can access the features of the previous standalone Stream TV box with the expanded audio experience of a soundbar.

These soundbars each come with Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound, Wi-Fi 6, and run atop Android TV for great app support. These systems have 2GB of system RAM and 16GB of storage which should be more than enough to handle 4K streaming enabled by the HDMI 2.1 port for output with up to 4K 60Hz video support.

The cheaper Verizon Stream TV Soundbar has two HDMI ports for external devices, so you don't need to worry about taking up an HDMI port with this soundbar. You can easily plug in your game consoles or Blu-ray player into these ports to view them on your TV. This soundbar uses five speakers to produce its wide range of sound including three full-range speakers and two woofers. This soundbar should be able to stand toe-to-toe with some of the best soundbars you can get despite its low price.

The Verizon Stream TV Soundbar Pro takes things a lot further with major upgrades to the audio components. This soundbar comes with nine speakers, including four full range, three tweeters, and two woofers. Having a wider range of speakers like this allows the soundbar to recreate sounds more accurately and provide the necessary fidelity to create a convincing virtual surround effect. This soundbar also comes with wall-mounting hardware so you can keep your TV setup clean.

If you're looking for a way to save on these audio upgrades, Verizon has a promotion on accessories with up to 30% off your purchase when you buy three or more accessories.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
