Verizon teams up with Bang & Olufsen to launch soundbars with built-in Stream TV
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Dec. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon Stream TV now sounds as good as it looks with the introduction of two premium soundbars featuring Verizon’s on-demand streaming solution built-in. Designed in collaboration with luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen, the new soundbars give you that big movie experience in your living room with no additional speakers or receiver required.
Stream TV Soundbar ($399.99) and Stream TV Soundbar Pro ($999.99) are available exclusively at Verizon starting today. And as part of Verizon’s Buy More Save More offer, if you purchase three eligible accessories — including both new soundbars — you can save 30%. This offer increases to 40% as you buy more accessories1.
Verizon worked with Bang & Olufsen to bring the Danish brand’s powerful sound to the Stream TV Soundbar and Soundbar Pro. With built-in 4K Ultra HD2 streaming, the soundbars are the perfect 2-in-1 entertainment solution to bring the ultimate cinematic experience to your home. Your existing media devices, including game consoles3 and Blu-ray players, can also be connected for a seamless experience.
Stream TV: The best in entertainment, all in one place
Stream TV is Verizon’s next-gen streaming platform that makes it simple to binge-watch your favorite movies and shows with quick access to streaming services like Disney+, Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime and so many others. Powered by Android TV, Stream TV helps you find the best on-demand entertainment and discover the most exciting shows, movies and apps in one place.
The latest hits are also available for rent or purchase on demand through the Stream TV store4. If you would rather play than watch, hundreds of new and classic games are available through Google Play — no console needed.
Use the voice-powered remote with Google Assistant to search for content or control volume, TV power and other settings5. The unique Find My Remote feature helps you keep track of the remote at all times. For content stored on your phone, built-in Chromecast can wirelessly stream select videos, pictures and music to your TV.
Bring the theater to your living room
The Stream TV Soundbar sports five Bang & Olufsen-tuned speakers and Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound for exceptional sound quality. With 4K Ultra High Definition video streaming, you can experience cinema-quality sound and vision in the comfort of your own home. Stream TV Soundbar Pro steps up to nine Bang & Olufsen speakers with Dolby Atmos virtual surround sound for an even grander home-theater experience, and adds a third HDMI port for added connectivity. Bang & Olufsen also designed the leek silhouette for the Pro, giving it a modern, minimalist look that begs to be placed front and center — even when it isn’t on.
Automatic sound field selection detects what you are watching and adjusts audio settings to provide the best playback. Whether you need clear dialogue in a movie or a roaring crowd in a sporting event, Stream TV Soundbar will adjust your audio settings for optimal performance6.
Better sound on the better network
