The few "new" things on the horizon are:
1. "Atmos" surround which brings new audio channels to the game. Specifically, you can hang speakers from your ceiling to enhance the sound field (a LOT of speakers from what I've read).

2. A new connection standard called "HD-BASE-T" that allows for much longer runs of HDMI cable (up to 350 feet give-or-take). You can keep you system in the basement and run HDMI to your TV in the living room, bedroom etc.
I think the current limit is about 30 feet.

3. New HDMI tech standards to allow native 4K (and 8K?) to feed your 4K TV.

Anything else?
