It Was Fun: Friday February 24th in Downtown Toronto - Our Most Recent 4K LIVE Screening is now History!

If you haven't seen true 4K Ultra HDTV in action on a sports broadcast, come check out our live event at One King West Hotel this Friday evening. 4K is pretty spectacular when it is done end-to-end. 

Of all NBA game broadcasts in North America, just a select few Raptors games are being broadcast in 4K. For you to get the full 4K effect, everything in the broadcast chain from the cameras in the arena, the production truck outside the venue, the cable TV system, your own cable box, and your TV must ALL be capable and set to run 4K - which is four times the resolution of regular HDTV. 

All of that is coming together for the event that ETRdotTV and One King West are putting on Friday. 

Come join us for a drink! 

One King West Hotel in the historic Vault on the lower level, 7:30pm Friday February 24th, 2017. PATH accessible and Line 1 Subway at the door (King Station)

What a Great Time at the 4K Screening of the 2017 NHL Centennial Classic!

On New Years Day we had the 85" Sony 4K UHDTV from our colleagues at Magnacom set-up and connected to our Rogers 4K Set Top Box and tuned to SportsNet 4K for the exciting broadcast, produced in 4K by Dome Productions. When everything in the production, distribution, and display chain is in 4K, you can REALLY see the difference, especially on a BIG screen from close up!

Leafs edged out the Wings in an intense overtime finish forced by Detroit who tied the game with 1.1 seconds remaining in regulation time!

Check out some photos snapped at the event, along with photos and descriptions of the memorabilia that we had on offer. Just click here to view the Gallery.

On behalf of Jennifer and Ron from ETRdotTV, thank you to everyone who came out and to ICEBOX Cards and Collectibles of Barrie Ontario, and of course to our venue One King West Hotel in the historic VAULT. Look for more 4K events coming soon!

New Years Day - Sunday January 1st at 3pm - Join ETRdotTV for the NHL Centennial Classic in Ultra HD LIVE at One King West Toronto

Register now for a chance to WIN a valuable door prize - and to reserve your seat. It's FREE, just click here!

The 2017 NHL Centennial Classic will feature a match-up between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings and will be played outdoors at BMO Field.

Rather than freezing in the stands, drop by the One King West Hotel in the historic VAULT to enjoy the game in true 4K Ultra HD.

We will be displaying some high quality hockey memorabilia from The ICEBOX Cards and Collectibles that will also be available for purchase! Drinks and food will be available from the Tellers Bar at One King. Seating is FREE but limited so come early!

One King West Hotel and Residence is located at Yonge and King Streets in downtown Toronto, and is connected to the PATH and the King subway station on Line 1. 

This broadcast will be an excellent demonstration of what 4K Ultra HD is capable of. To experience true Ultra HD, all elements in the production and distribution chain must utilize 4K equipment. Not all NHL games are available in 4K. For this game, all equipment is 4K - from the Sony 4300 cameras in the stadium to the production truck being brought in by Dome Productions, to the SportsNet live feed, to the Rogers 4K set top box that we have, and to the Sony 85" UHDTV that we will have in the Vault, all components are 4K, so this should be a great experience!

You Missed It! BAM!! Monday April 4th was the Duke of Devon trivia season finale. Here is what you missed:

We are very excited to have begun the 2016 season of PubStumpers at Toronto's Duke of Devon!

Of course, there will be $25 Duke of Devon gift certificates, with one certificate going to the team that leads at the halftime break and a second certificate going to the leading team at the end of the evening's game.

New this season, the Duke of Devon and ETR.TV are featuring Toronto's new Air-Rail link UP Express and Toronto's One King West Hotel. That means we will be giving away two UP Express return tickets every week of PubStumpers AND two luxurious overnight stays at One King West will be awarded during this PubStumpers season!

It's easy and fun to win. Here is how we will be giving these prizes away:

  • Each evening of PubStumpers at the Duke of Devon, simply drop your business card into the bowl. 
  • We will award two UP Express return tickets each week at the end of the evening's game. Two business cards will be drawn from the bowl and those persons will receive one return ticket each.
  • At two game dates during this PubStumpers 12 week season, (Monday February 8, 2016 and Monday April 4, 2016) we will draw one business card on each of those dates and that person will receive one night's luxury accommodation at One King West Hotel. For these two draws, all business cards received during prior PubStumpers game nights this season will be added back to the bowl. So the more times you come to play PubStumpers at the Duke of Devon the better your chance to win a One King West hotel stay!
  • You must be present at the time of each draw at the Duke of Devon to win.
  • Prizes must be accepted as awarded and may not be exchanged for cash or resold. All decisions of the Quizmaster are final.

What a season this is going to be! Gift Certificates from the Duke of Devon, tickets on UP Express and stays at One King West. 

Take a break from winter.
