Good morning, everyone.

Welcome to today’s Swanni Sez newsletter, which includes links and summaries of the day’s top stories in TV technology.

But before we go to the news, don’t forget to peruse the aisles of Amazon where today you will find some awesome deals on Amazon devices such as the Echo and Fire TV stick. Plus, as you probably know, the TV Answer Man site gets a small percentage of each sale made through our Amazon link so I would truly appreciate it if you could toss at least one or two items in your cart today.

Here’s our Amazon link: 

Many thanks.

Now, let’s go to the news!
