TODO alt text

T3 Hype is a weekly round-up of all the hottest tech news and releases.

Rather than doing oodles of separate stories on various announcements, we'll filter them to bring you only the stuff that matters most, updating every Friday for your reading pleasure.

This week we have 4K streaming, smart skiing and retro gaming from 4K Virgin TV V6, Sky Mobile, B&O Play Beoplay H9, Adidas Progressor Pro and more…

Virgin Media TV V6

Virgin Media has taken the wraps of its new TV V6 set-top box this week that will offer viewers 4K content. Taking on Sky Q this new box will not only offer UHD content but will also allow owners to record up to six channels at once.

The TV V6 will also support HDR when that gets introduced as an update down the line. There is also an optional tablet which is intended for remote viewing about the home with a 1080p, 14-inch screen. Although the app will let you view shows on existing smartphones and tablets anyway.

6 reasons to buy the Virgin TV V6 telly box

B&O Play Beoplay H9

Quite simply some of the best headphones out there right now are B&O’s new flagship Play Beoplay H9 cans - even if the name is a bit silly. These wireless earphones offer the latest hybrid Active Noise Cancellation for up to 14 hours on a three hour charge. 

The cowhide leather headband, aluminium build and soft ear cushions should make for a superior headset. The B&O Play Beoplay H9 earphones are £449 at launch.

Are the B&O Play Beoplay H9's the most finely-finished cord-free cans yet?

NES30 Classic Edition Set

If you’ve got the beautifully retro Nintendo Classic but want to make it a little more ready for playing in the-future-that-is-now, you can go wireless. The new NES30 Classic Set offers upgraded wireless controller compatibility for the console.

This comes with a receiver to plug into the console plus a controller. It will also work with plenty of other wireless controllers so two player, wire free retro gaming is easier to get than ever.
