Perhaps key here, THX Tune-Up will allow users to adjust their television, projector and speakers for the best setup and best performance.
THX Ltd. has launched the app for free, though it will not stay at that price. Details here show the app being available for free through February 3rd. After that time the app will adjust to $1.99. Aside from this being a launch promotion price, THX Ltd. also mentioned how the app is being launched in time for the Olympic Games and this Sunday's big game.
