The company just revealed the "world's first" 77-inch flexible OLED display, complete with transparency and 4K resolution. Would you ever need such a thing? Of course not, but just look at it.

Ditching sports could be the cheapest way to cut the cord

Cordcutters cheap TV plan

With a raft of new internet-only pay-TV bundles coming out this year, 2017 is looking good for cordcutters. YouTube, Sling, Hulu, and even AT&T have all announced "skinny" TV bundles that cost around $40 a month for a core selection of TV channels, which is welcome relief for anyone paying a normal cable bill.

But $40 a month is still a big ask for people used to paying $10 a month for Netflix, and some TV networks are looking for an alternative. According to a Bloomberg report, the solution could be something everyone always thought was impossible: ditch sports.
