While we don’t anticipate any announcements from major players like Netflix or Hulu, it is likely that the surge in subscriptions to streaming services will continue in 2021, especially as more shows and movies change hands or premieres. The arrival of the office on NBC’s peacock probably increased subscriptions this month, for example as Wonder Woman 1984 for HBO Max.

The pandemic is bringing home entertainment and video chat devices to the fore

With many parts of the world grappling with spikes in coronavirus cases and many people still working and talking from home, home entertainment providers will have a ton of new products TV, Soundbars and streaming devices on display at CES 2021.

With Samsung’s new Smart Trainer feature for the 2021 TVs, you can connect a webcam to track training progress and receive coaching.


Since the pandemic closed many fitness studios and fitness courses or only used them to a limited extent from March, Fitness products, apps and services for the home saw strong growth. We are expecting several new offers in this category at CES. Ultrahuman, a new health and fitness app to be unveiled at the show, uses a MasterClass-like strategy that allows people to meditate, exercise, and sleep better with the help of athletes, neuroscientists, artists, and psychologists. Wearable society Amazfit introduces its new GTR 2e and GTS 2e smartwatches, which include functions such as high-precision heart rate monitoring and measurement of blood oxygen saturation.

Samsung televisions even make fitness action: A new function on the 2021 televisions of the electronics giant is called Smart trainer This option allows you to connect a webcam to your TV so the Samsung Health app can track your workout progress and provide coaching and encouragement.

Given that people are investing large sums of money in home fitness equipment and the apps and services that come with it (you look at yourself, Peloton) it will be interesting to see if people congregate in gyms when they are perfectly safe back or not stay at home in their gyms. The fitness technology we’re seeing at CES could be another sign of the move away from exercise in the gym and living room.

Look at that:
