How to pick the right size TV for you.
Pick your screen technology.
When choosing the perfect size TV, it's worth considering how far away you'll be sitting from the screen. Smaller displays are best when you’re closer to the screen, while a larger screen is best enjoyed when you’re watching from a distance.
Don’t worry about space issues when you want to go big. Large TVs are slimmer than ever before, with better resolutions and wider viewing angles. A modern 50” TV takes roughly the same space as a 42” TV did ten years ago, so it’s a great time to upgrade.

Consider picture quality.
Your choice of screen technology can make a massive difference to your viewing experience, making your shows more vivid and immersive. So, what are your options?
Each pixel of an OLED screen is its own light source, so you get brilliant contrast, rich colour, and deeper blacks. OLED TVs consume less energy than LED TVs, so they’re great if you’re looking to save on bills.
All QLED TVs have a film of particles that are controlled precisely for colour output. So, you’ll get a wider range of colours that look true-to-life, no matter the brightness of the room.
LED TVs shine a backlight through an LCD panel to display individual pictures. It’s not as premium as OLED and QLED, but you will get a wider range of great-value TVs to choose from. Look out for HDR for improved colour reproduction and contrast.

It’s more than a TV. It’s Smart too.
4K TVs have a resolution four times greater than a Full HD display, for improved detail and a much sharper picture. Some TVs can upscale from Full HD to 4K too.
With HDR (High Dynamic Range) you get improved contrast, greater levels of brightness, and a wider colour palette for a more natural and true-to-life picture.
Look out for certification badges, such as 4K Ultra HD Premium and 4K HDR Ultra HD TVs, to make sure your TV meets the top standard for Ultra HD and HDR.
You’ll find a wide range of popular content is available to watch in 4K Ultra HD. From movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, Prime Video content, to sports channels including BT Sport 4K UHD. All you need is a TV that supports streaming apps in 4K, and a fast broadband connection.

Fewer speakers, less wires, better sound.
Media streamers and boxes can clutter your living room. Why not pick a TV that already has everything you want? Smart TVs offer catch-up and on-demand services like Netflix and BBC iPlayer. There’s more 4K content added every day and even if your favourite show isn’t in 4K, your 4K TV can upscale it to improve viewing quality.
Every TV manufacturer offers a varied selection of apps, so it’s worth checking what’s on offer before you buy. Popular apps like Prime Video and YouTube can be found on most TVs. Many TVs offer a browser as well as social media apps, lifestyle and gaming. So, you’re always entertained.
With voice control, you won’t need to navigate through menus to reach your content. You can search for content without typing or control your TV settings.

Brilliant visuals deserve brilliant audio. So, how do you choose the best sound to match your TV?
Sound bars can be mounted underneath your TV for superior sound and convenience. You can get one with a wireless subwoofer, or if you’re limited for space, try a compact or all-in-one sound bar.
Soundstage systems offer the most efficient space saving audio solution, with a flat design that can sit alongside Blu-ray players and games consoles without looking cluttered.
Home cinema systems guarantee that nobody misses a word of dialogue. With speakers placed around your living room for enveloping surround sound, you’ll get the same crystal-clear audio wherever you sit.
For the ultimate breathtaking, cinematic sound, look out for Dolby Atmos. Hear and feel roaring audio all around you, putting you in the centre of the action.
