NBN leaves suburbs behind, 8KTV looms large: Vertical Hold – Episode 243

LG’s 8K TV is now available — but can it justify its asking price? And why is NBN Co leaving selected suburbs in the dark when it comes to their connection date? All this and more in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Casa Systems.

As LG’s 8K TVs hits the shelves, is it time for Australians to get onboard? What happens to the suburbs NBN dumps in the too hard basket?

This week Adam chats to Jen Dudley-Nicholson around NBN’s plans — or lack thereof — for select suburbs when it comes to NBN connectivity, while I catch up with technology writer Geoff Quattromani to delve into the world of 8K TVs!
