Hands-On With Haier's New HDTVs

Haier's 2011 HDTVs look bright, sharp, and slick--and as the official TV brand of the NBA, we simply had to stop by at the CES show floor and check out their upcoming gear.

First, we took a look at their revamped edge-lit LED TV lineup--the high-end EV series, which comes in 42-inch, 46-inch, and 55-inch models. Design-wise, their glass bezel and swivel stand look slick, if slightly conservative. Check them out for yourself in the video below.

Next, we got a quick tour through their Internet-connected features, which were served by the built-in Wi-Fi adapter. At the moment, they've got Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu Plus, with plans to add Blockbuster's video rental service. Of course, the EV series can automatically update the firmware through the Wi-Fi network connection, so they'll be able to add new services as they become available. Watch the video below for a quick look at the menus and apps.
