Starting today, tis the season for those in Jet Blue’s Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.
That’s where the Best Buy Ultra HD Lounge welcomes weary travelers to kick back in one of 12 plush leather seats (with cup holders) and enjoy a TV picture that’s four times sharper than HDTV.
The lounge features three 65-inch 4K Ultra High Definition TVs (thanks to Samsung, LG and Sony) and will be showing what the future of TV looks like, with the help from UltraFlix entertainment content.
And as Holiday travelers appreciate the 4K UHD screens and their eight million pixels, they can charge their phone, tablet, laptop or anything else that is low on juice, in addition to checking out the colors of the Phillips Hue lighting adorning the lounge.
The lounge is available to anyone and everyone at Jet Blue’s Terminal 5 through Dec. 7.
“We know consumers need to see 4K UHD to understand how immersive it actually can be,” said Luke Motschenbacher, who is Best Buy’s merchant director for TVs. “Best Buy’s UHD Lounge brings the technology outside the store and directly in front of consumers to experience and enjoy, and, hopefully, inspire. And what better place is busier or better to do just that than Jet Blue’s JFK terminal during the holiday season?”
