Why Did the Plasma TV Disappear So Quickly?

Why Did the Plasma TV Disappear So Quickly?

Remember plasma TVs? Either you remember how fancy these iconic TVs seemed, or maybe you recall Michael Scott of The Office (US) finally broke down and bought one, inclined to stand and watch it for hours. They were all the rage in the late 90s and early 2000s, boasting sleek and sexy designs and crystal-clear picture quality. Manufacturers promised a new era of television viewing.

Today, it seems as if these TVs only exist in secondhand shops. Why did the plasma TV disappear so quickly? Read on to discover what caused the downfall of this TV titan.

Expensive To Manufacture

Despite its clear advantages, plasma TVs turned out to be more expensive to manufacture than LCD TVs. With the global recession, consumers became less willing to spend top dollar on a new TV, and plasma TVs were among the first casualties.

Burn-In Issues

Another issue with plasma TVs was that they were prone to burning in. If you left a static image on the screen for too long, it could burn into the panel and display permanently. This burn-in was a major issue for retailers, who found that customers often returned plasma TVs because of this flaw. The idea of not letting an image burn into your TV persists, even for modern TVs that are immune to the issue!

Electricity Hog

Plasma TVs also tend to use a lot of electricity. Initially, this wasn’t a problem, but as energy prices increased, consumers became more mindful of how much power their electronics used. Plasma TVs can use up to twice as much electricity as other TVs, which is one of the reasons why they’ve fallen out of favor in recent years.

Environmental Concerns

Plasma TVs generate a lot of heat, making them less desirable from an environmental standpoint. In an age where people are increasingly concerned about their carbon footprint, plasma TVs just couldn’t compete with their cooler, more energy-efficient counterparts.

Difficult To Repair

Thanks to their intricate and delicate circuitry, plasma TVs also proved more time-consuming to repair. If something went wrong with a plasma TV, it was often less frustrating—and less expensive—to buy a new one.

However, if you have an old plasma TV lying around and you’re not ready to say goodbye to it just yet, you can buy parts online so you can perform repairs and extend its life. Understanding how a plasma TV works alongside its basic components can help you with this process.

“Why did the plasma TV disappear so quickly?” you might ask. Combined, the multiple realities of this high-tech device make it a less-than-ideal choice for consumers in an increasingly competitive TV market. While they have their advantages, plasma TVs have found themselves in more of a niche market, reserved for sports fans and cinema junkies seeking its rich color range.

4 Superhero Shows You Need to Watch in 2021

4 Superhero Shows You Need to Watch in 2021

The superhero phenomenon has moved into television, but the shows are getting bigger and better than ever before. Because of their cinematic nature, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your living room and check out the latest from Marvel, DC, and others. Some might say that TV brings comic books to life more so than movies, and this list of superhero shows you need to watch in 2021 definitely adds to that argument.

Keep in mind that joining through our affiliate links may earn WatchMojo a commission. Thank you for your support!

Invincible (Amazon Prime Video)

The first superhero show to make our list came under the radar because it’s animated, but Invincible deserves its spot. Based on the comic book series of the same name, from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, the show features all the gore you may come to expect. However, the Amazon Prime Video series has a ton of heart, breathtaking action, and an incredible voice cast—and it’s just scratching the surface of what’s to come for Mark Grayson.

Loki (Disney Plus)

Loki just premiered on Disney Plus, but many already see it as one of the best shows Marvel Studios has put out so far. The show is very much a mystery, but it’s also setting up the multiverse, which will be a huge part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward. Loki is also a delight, with Tom Hiddleston sharing plenty of screen time with Owen Wilson’s Mobius.

WandaVision (Disney Plus)

Another superhero show you need to watch in 2021 from Marvel Studios is WandaVision. The series was the first out of the gate from Marvel Studios on Disney Plus and flips the superhero genre on its head, with its sitcom setting infused with everything audiences love about MCU films. WandaVision also put Scarlet Witch and Vision front and center, and the performances make them hard not to love.

Superman & Lois (The CW)

You may have given up on The CW’s Arrowverse years ago, but Superman & Lois is worth the revisit. The DC series may follow Superman and Lois Lane from the Supergirl series, but with its bigger budget, awesome costumes, and visuals, the show is unlike anything we’ve seen from The CW. Superman & Lois also expands the Man of Steel mythos with the story following Clark Kent as a father of two teenage twins and plenty of intriguing twists.

What’s Next for Game of Thrones?

What's Next for Game of Thrones?

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly two years since the Game of Thrones series finale aired on HBO. Some viewers were pleased with the direction the series took, while others were vocal about their disappointment. Regardless of where you fell, HBO is not calling it quits with the valuable Game of Thrones IP anytime soon. Keep reading to discover what’s next for Game of Thrones after the series finale.

The Scrapped Spin-Off

Before we dive into all the planned Game of Thrones projects, let’s talk about what could’ve been. HBO was notably developing several spin-offs from different writers and selected Jane Goldman’s offering first. According to Entertainment Weekly, the planned series was set to follow the “world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.” The prequel series cast was led by Naomi Watts and shot a pilot that, ultimately, was not picked up by HBO.

More Dragons!

While one Game of Thrones project won’t see the light of day, there will still be plenty of others in the future. HBO is moving forward with House of the Dragon—sometime in 2022, you’ll be able to channel your inner Tyrion Lannister and watch with some delicious red wine.

House of the Dragon will begin filming soon with Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Rhys Ifans, and more attached to star. The prequel series will follow the Targaryen family hundreds of years before the Game of Thrones story we know.

Another Prequel

In addition to House of the Dragon, HBO is also in early development on a series based on George R.R. Martin’s The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight novellas. Tales of Dunk and Egg will follow Ser Duncan the Tall and Aegon V Targaryen 90 years before the events of A Song of Ice and Fire.

An Animated Series

The Game of Thrones series is expected to explore different mediums in the future as well, and an animated series is in its early days of development. Not much is known about the animated series, but it is said to be adult oriented.

It’s worth noting that series creator George R.R. Martin is also working on the final novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, but there’s no telling when those will arrive. So, that’s what’s next for Game of Thrones, but it’s anticipated that Warner Bros. will remain committed to the franchise since it’s a valuable asset in the ongoing streaming wars.

A Guide To Cord-Cutting for College Students

A Guide To Cord-Cutting for College Students

Subscriptions to streaming services can quickly add up, and that can be tough for a college student who is trying to budget their expenses. With the COVID-19 pandemic, staying in and binge-watching a show has become a standard Friday night for many after a long week of classes. Instead of spending an insane amount of money finding entertainment during this time, here’s a guide to cord-cutting for college students.

Take Advantage of College Deals

Some college students might not realize how many discounts are out there for them. Some streaming services offer student discounts that lower the monthly price if you let them know that you are currently attending college. Some universities also offer a free account for streaming that can give you access to HBO and more. While it might only be a few extra dollars off, this can save you a ton of money long-term and allow you to get the entertainment you need.

Use the Right Device

A subscription isn’t the only thing college students need to worry about—they also need to find a way to get the shows they want on your TV. If you already own a laptop and an HDTV, the most affordable option is to get an HDMI cord. However, you can also find a Chromecast, Roku Streaming Stick, or Amazon Fire TV Stick for less than $50 if you don’t own a smart TV. You can also stream off your gaming console if you have one.

Buy a TV Antenna

The biggest problem college students face when it comes to cord-cutting is missing out on live TV. This is where a TV antenna comes in handy. You can find TV antennas in the $30 price range that will allow you access to a variety of free channels. Many modern TV antennas also come in HD, so you don’t have to sacrifice display quality either!

Bundle Up, Save Money

Many streaming services also have different bundles you can choose from that can help save you money in the long run. For example, you can bundle Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13 a month. Students can also get Hulu and Showtime with a Spotify Premium account for only $5 a month. Instead of subscribing to one streaming service, look for bundles first!

Don’t Forget Your Login-Ins From Home

The last part of our guide to cord-cutting for college students is to not forget about your log-ins from home. If your parents have streaming accounts that you typically use at home, take them with you to college, so you don’t have to pay for it on your own. However, you might want to ask before you run off with their account passwords.

How To Binge-Watch TV the Healthy Way

How To Binge-Watch TV the Healthy Way

Binge-watching is nothing short of a phenomenon that has launched streaming wars between various companies. Since many people are stuck at home with nowhere to go, burning through shows has become even more popular. But binge-watching, like anything you binge, can be harmful to your health. If you just can’t put that remote down, follow these tips on how to binge-watch TV the healthy way.

Work Out and Watch

The first method to make your TV marathons a bit healthier is to combine your viewing with something productive. Watching a show while you are on a treadmill, for instance, is a great way to make your bingeing habits healthier and help you look forward to your workouts once again.

Eat Healthier Snacks

It can be easy to fall into the trap of reaching for the cookies or some other junk food while you’re enjoying a TV show. Make a simple change by swapping that junk for healthier snacks like almonds, pistachios, or an apple. If you can eat your way through a bag of chips without even really tasting it when you get lost in a show, use that habit to your advantage by eating or drinking something better for you.

Protect Your Eyes

Spending too much time watching a TV show can also be bad for your eyes because of the blue light that emits from the screen. When you expose your eyes to too much blue light, you run the risk of digital eye strain, which can lead to fatigue. Thankfully, there is no shortage of blue-light glasses you can wear while you are binge-watching. They’ll give your eyes the protection you need.

Take Breaks

If you can’t get yourself a pair of blue-light glasses or don’t want to wear them, you can also just take some breaks throughout your binge. Stepping away from the television for a bit will give your eyes a much-needed break from the screen and give you a chance to grab some water, a snack, and a bathroom break. Breaks are also necessary to keep you from going into a hole and allow you to get a better night’s sleep—so set yourself some limits!

Watch with Others

Watching TV can be a great experience that you share with others. Pick a time to watch with friends and family, whether it’s in-person or virtually. Watching this way allows you to socialize with others and create common interests with friends and family that you may be missing during social distancing measures.

Pay Attention

The last tip on how to binge-watch TV the healthy way is to make sure you are paying attention. It can be easy to get bored with a show and start to scroll through social media and miss important beats. Look for a show that you find incredibly engaging. Not only will you be challenging your mind, but a program becomes far more enjoyable when you can really immerse yourself and escape from the real world for a little bit—which is something everyone can use a little bit of right now.

Top Reasons to Have a Home Theater

Top Reasons to Have a Home Theater

In the days of COVID-19, it has never been a better time to make your dream of having a home theater a reality. If you didn’t think about having a home theater until now, you’re welcome, but if you’re looking for the top reasons to have a home theater, we’ve got you covered. Read our guide below to learn more.

You have full control over everything

Believe it or not, a lot of movie theaters have outdated technology. A home theater gives you the power to install state of the art technology that provides better audio and visual quality. We know the saying, “if it’s too loud, you’re too old,” but have you ever been to a movie theater where the sound was way too loud? It completely ruins the movie! The best way to fix it is to install a home theater, of course. This allows you to control the volume and the remote so you can finally pause for bathroom breaks.

Snacks and drinks are better and way cheaper

The movie theater popcorn alone costs an arm and a leg, and while it’s really good, is it really worth it? A home theater allows you to make your own homemade snacks that are probably tastier, healthier, and cheaper. Movie theater drinks are also very expensive. Whether you want an adult beverage, a soda, or even a water, you won’t break the bank on refreshments in your own home theater.

You’ll always have the best seat

While a lot of movie theaters have designated seating nowadays, not every theater got the memo. Everyone has their own idea of what the best seat in the house is, and you’ll get it every time with your own theater. Install some awesome reclining seats, along with other essential home theater items, and you’ll be on your way to the best theater experience ever.

Whether you admit it or not, everyone has thought about installing a home theater in their house at one point or another. While there are tons of reasons to have a theater in your house, we wanted to give you just a few of the top reasons to have a home theater. Besides, we’re in the middle of a global pandemic—now is the time to set up that theater you’ve always dreamt of.

One of the things we love about Drag Race is its positivity.

Rebellious, visionary, and often considered eccentric, Aquarians may seem like they’re off in their own world.  That’s why the tree at the center of the Earth Kingdom’s mysterious swamp is such a fascinating prospect for the Aquarius mind, and why this canvas print would be the perfect addition to any Water-Bearer’s space.  The powerful spiritual energy and mystical properties of the swamp are comforting to free-spirited Aquarius, who is always ready to chase some higher vision or deeper mystery.  Maybe just having this art on the wall would help to focus all that cosmic energy Aquarius is always vibrating with, and boost them to their natural greatness.

Pisces

“Moon Spirit” Sticker; Redbubble

Pisces is a sign known for a deeply compassionate and sensitive nature, which is why they would surely feel an affinity with The Painted Lady.  This gentle guardian is depicted here with the Moon and Ocean Spirits, representing balance, all things that speak to the nature of the empathetic water sign.  For the Pisces individual, who often feels suspended between fantasy and reality, the spiritual entities who choose to dwell in the mortal world become apt signifiers of their own duality, which they can carry with them wherever they go thanks to the convenience of being able to buy artwork in a sticker format.

But if you want to inject a little bit of fun and Disney magic into your breakfast routine, this product is perfect. This two slice toaster has a bold design featuring the House of Mouse’s most iconic figure, and not only that but it also prints a little “hidden Mickey” onto your toast!

Your next dinner party or wine and cheese event will be complete with this on the table! 

Disney Dreams Collection Thomas Kinkade Studios Coloring Book

Thomas Kinkade is one of America’s most recognizable artists, and he has done plenty of work with Disney over the years. This coloring book for adults and kids lets you add your own creative spin to his much-loved images which depict scenes from the most popular Disney animated films. You can aim to recreate his emblematic style, or create something that is entirely your own. The book features 63 images, which are laid out across from the corresponding coloring pages, so you can get inspiration from the master himself. 

Belle Rose “Beauty and the Beast” Baseball Cap

Sometimes you want to show off your Disney pride without abandon, but sometimes you might be looking for a more subtle addition to your wardrobe that acts almost like a secret handshake for Disney fans. This women’s baseball cap is embroidered with a simple red rose on the front, which any regular person may take for a standard aesthetic design. But the true believers will recognize it instantly from Beauty and the Beast. The back of the cap features a cheeky message reading “I only date beasts”. 

Princess-Themed Women’s Jogger Lounge Sweat Pants

If you live near a Disney store or frequent the theme parks often, you have plenty of opportunities to pick up new officially-licensed Disney merch for your wardrobe, but did you know you can also get it online? The loungewear trend definitely isn’t going anywhere any time soon, and these princess-themed sweatpants are the perfect thing for sleeping in, or wearing while you work from home! The best part is that they feature some of Disney’s most badass characters, like Jasmine, Moana, Ariel, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, Merida and Mulan. 

The Ultimate Disney World Cookbook 

Many people head to the Disney parks for the rides and attractions, but one of the lesser-known pleasures is the wonderful food. Disney devotees all have their favorite restaurants and dishes, and with this cookbook you can learn to create some of them at home. The Ultimate Disney Cookbook features many recipes from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios, as well as special recipes from The Epcot Food and Wine Festival. There’s even a recipe for the mysterious “grey stuff” from Beauty and The Beast.

Wine Tumbler

These days, there’s nothing we want more than to be able to go to the Disney parks. So this cup will not only help you drown your sorrows, but also express your frustration. Disney is truly the most magical place on Earth, and we’re all a little down when we’re not there, which is why this tumbler that reads “I wine because I’m not at Disney” is just perfect. The mug is BPA-free and made of stainless steel, and the phrase is engraved, which means it will be long-lasting even after many washes. 

Classic Mickey Waffle Maker

Mickey Waffles are sold at various locations throughout the Disney theme parks, but unlike many other popular food items, they’re pretty much impossible to recreate at home unless you have the right equipment. That’s where the Mickey Waffle Maker comes in. Made with brushed stainless steel, this device makes one 7″ Mickey Mouse-shaped waffle at a time. And the non-stick surface ensures that your waffles come out perfectly every single time. Whether you’re serving young ones, or just the young at heart, this will make your breakfast a little more magical. 

American Tourister Disney Hardside Luggage With Spinner Wheels

Whether you’re traveling to the most magical place on Earth, or just going on a business trip, you want to make sure everyone knows about your Disney fandom. You’re in luck: American Tourister makes a variety of different luggage designs featuring distinctive Disney images. Depending on how bold or subtle you want to be, there’s a pattern for you! The luggage comes in both checked baggage or carry-on sizes, and you can buy them individually or in a set. Let’s just say there’s no way you’ll miss your bag at the carousel once you have these.  

Mickey Mouse Oval Slow Cooker

If you want to bring even more Disney cheer to your kitchen, look no further. This Mickey Mouse Slow Cooker is sure to put a smile on your face every time you look at it. Whether you use it to make a standard soup or chili for your family or to attempt to recreate some of Disney’s most famous recipes, it’s the perfect addition to any superfan’s home. It has a 5-quart capacity, meaning you have flexibility to make a variety of recipes, and it also comes with a 20-ounce dipper which can be used for sauces and appetizers of all kinds.

All The Tiger King Merchandise You Never Wanted

Good morning to everyone (except that bitch Carole Baskin).

If you’re like me, shortly after binge watching a Netflix series as awesome as Tiger King, you might find yourself beginning to exhibit strange withdrawal symptoms. For me, this typically includes a general lack of interest in other shows for at least a week, watching hours of derivative videos on YouTube like Top 10 Cringiest Moments From Tiger King or digging into the main character’s backstories on Wikipedia. Spoiler alert, I didn’t find the smoking gun in the disappearance of Don Lewis on Carole Basikn’s page, but I did learn that Universal is developing an adaptation of Joe Exotic’s podcast for Television, tapping Kate McKinnon to play Baskin. Another withdrawal symptom I commonly experience, is the need to seek out and buy the most ridiculous merchandise related to the show I just watched. This time, while conducting my Tiger King search, I documented the best finds for all you Cool Cats and Kittens to enjoy!
