CES 2017 is over and we choose our favourite TVs from the show.Unsurprisingly the big TV news was 4K OLED with Panasonic finally announcing the EZ1002, which was previously shown as a prototype at IFA. As rumoured before the show, Sony also announced an Ultra HD OLED TV in the form of the A1. They did manage to surprise everyone though by announcing their plans to add Dolby Vision, joining LG in supporting the proprietary HDR format. LG had a full range of OLED TVs at the show, which now include Dolby Atmos as well as Dolby Vision. Although the undoubted star of the show was LG's W7 UHD OLED TV which at just 2mm deep can be mounted on the wall using magnets.
