This past summer, my partner and I moved across the country from Connecticut to California. We elected not to move our ten-year-old television, figuring this was as good a reason as any to get a fancy new upgrade. After a bunch of research, we landed on the LG C1 — a 65-inch OLED TV with a 4K resolution.

Previously, we had been using a Roku Ultra as our media streamer because our old 1080p TV (also an LG model) had no “smarts” baked in. Considering the Roku Ultra supports 4K streams, my initial plan was to simply use the Roku with the new TV. However, that plan changed as soon as I used the LG Magic Remote for the first time.
