It's not technically free as you need a Tv license to watch live tv.
You also need to buy a TV.

And pay for the eletricity to run it.

And you need to buy food to give you energy for your eyes and brain and to function in order for you to watch.

And you need to pay tax on the income you earn to purchase that food.

When you break it down how can people in good conscience post these "free" football deals knowing about all these ridiculous hidden costs!!

Seriously though, you could make an argument that "technically" nothing posted on here is free if you really wanted to, or you could dispense with unnecessary pedantry use a common sense interpretation of "free".
Any chance of someone maintaining a Google calendar which we can subscribe too with all of this free footie data?

Just get a cheap computer and a half decent graphics card. Then plug the dvi into the hdmi of your TV. Then use kodi or the myriads of online free football streaming sites, after you've installed avast and an ad blocker it's not rocket science. I am not replacing my TV boxes in the end I'll just have a computer connection that's all you need nowadays.
Great links OP thanks Hot.

I got the 55 inch version of this on the £450 deal. Already had to return it 3 days after set up due to the screen flickering. Looked great with the lights etc but really disappointed overall. Time to give Hisense a try (_;)

Worst TV I ever bought, literally caught fire after owning it for 5 months. Something went wrong with ambilight and I saw burn marks around the edge of screen and on the frame of TV itself, potentially overheated LED light which is in the back of the TV with burn mark at the opposite of the LED .Philips stated engineers had a look at the pictures I emailed to them and they came to conclusion that it is mechanical fault and they put blame on us!! That was all done over the picture rather than actually sending someone to collect TV and do proper investigation to make sure this model is actually safe. They invalidated warranty, refused refund and we were £500 out of pocket. Never ever will buy anything from Philips and I strongly discourage anyone to support them.
This doesn't ring true them refusing to come out why not take it back to shop or contact seller?
I did take it back that's what I said, was referred to Philips for warranty issue which they declined, I sent them pictures and even video and explenation, but they voided warranty. In my opinionthis model should be recalled for safety issues, but that would cost philips millions in revenue, i am simply describing my terrible experience and frustration I had to deal with. I was so angry I even removed any philips product in my house such as light bulbs etc and threw it away, will never spend a penny on philips product.
You're either lying or stupid. If it was a couple of weeks over 120 days then that falls within the SOGA 6 months and argos shouldve replaced or refunded as it was obviously faulty. You shouldve gone to trading standards if they referred you to phillips.
Didn't your mother teach you be polite? if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it! You are stupid! I did what I did, explained myself clearly so if you don't understand it go back to primary school.They don't give you refund if they believe that you damaged item intentionally which is what they concluded after inspection from video and pictures received. Either way I don't give a damn anymore , it cost me money, but I learnt from this experience and spread the word around to friends and family. I am replying to this thread only to help others consider different TV , because I don't think this one is safe and wouldn't wish anyone to go through the hassle I did. You go ahead and buy 10 of those if you love it so much and I wish you worst of luck so you can go to courts and fight it if you so sure you will "prove" that you didn't damage it.Ignoring your comments now as I am only trying be helpful here and not bickering with individuals like you
Madness. If you are buying a Tv to be future proof as i'm sure most are thinking they are. Why on earth go for an upscaling tv that only has 60 Hz refresh rate. No wonder a lot are having picture freeze /flickering problems. Just wait until you come across true 4K broadcast. If tv's are 'cheap' there's a reason for it.

Managed to get the last one at my local Argos on Saturday thanks to this post.Happy with it for the money. Picture quality is good (I updated the firmware and applied the settings from the calibration video) and the Ambilight is a nice feature.Only thing I don't like about it is the backlight bleed, but it's only really noticeable when watching a film with the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.


you could try the paper fix - where you insert a slip of folded paper between screen and bezel surround

Is it me or is this overpriced for Hisense? Don't get me wrong, I love Hisense, but they're usually available for better value than this. At this price, you can get al LG with 4K, HDR and a 6yr warranty.https://www.richersounds.com/product/tv---all/lg/49-inch-smart-4k-hdr/lg-49uh610v

all these cheap lg tvs at this low price are RGBW panels i.e. not real 4k tvs http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/rgbw-201510084189.htm check them here http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/153f51d

Is this the new model thats just come out?? Cant see it on richer sounds as they have the new stock
The N5300 series is an Argos exclusive model, i would be very mindful of that,
Source of information comes directly from Hisense.
I would steer well clear of theese Argos exclusives, failure rates of Argos exclusive TV's /others are out of this world.

Too big. Don't have a 50" run of wall

A 50" TV is only about 44" wide. Up to 55" they look OK in a normal living room. The 65" needs a big space

Easy to do if you have the tv player downloaded like I have on Samsung galaxy tablet. Just create an account and login. You actually get 92 days free to use all plus channels. You can cancel anytime before you make a payment. Heat added

Yes, but when I cancelled I lost access to all the plus channels.

Edited By: wakeysteve1969 on Jul 23, 2017 22:47: Edited from the official Android app
I'll just register again under a different email but cancel just before payment is due. Worth noting though for others.

An Android TV box, humax smart box, Xbox one are some of the ways to watch. Tablets and phones too.
WHERE do you enter the code
You need to register first. Then when you get to the part where you enter "Payment Details" there is a box to enter the "Promo Code".

Beebee18
mboard42
The Code says 3 for 1 month. This suggests that you need to pay for 1 month and then get 2 free.

I've signed up with the code but it says my free trial ends in 1 month time. (Which is the initial one month free trial)

I really think it's going to charge me for a month and then give me another 2 months free

Do you have any more details on the deal???
Looks like you get 2 months free. After going through the process for the free trial and entering promo code, my trial expires 22/09/17 and on the billing info screen it shows £0.00 as billing amount. Heat added to OP. Thanks mutchly. :D


It's what we cloakially refer to as "Thankful for small mercies", huh?, hehehe. :-)

Thanx.
BulldogNo1
I cancelled the subscription straight away and now can't access the plus channels. Should I have waited until nearer the end of the free trial before canceling ?

They're cheeky!.

That shouldn't really have been a problem for them? (Now TV keeps the door wide open during your free trial, irrespective of when you cancel your free trial on them ... )

Looks like your above one may not play by the same concept?.

Their terms and conditions may shed more light? (assuming anyone has time for such things, of course ... )

Your opinion and choice. I place a high value on reliability and have seen too many faulty vestel TVs to consider them reliable. Panasonic thought the same having taken a bashing following their use of Vestel rebadged TVs. I don't have proof to show you though if you Google vestel reliability you'll likely find why I won't buy. The warranty removes most of the concern in this case though I suspect it will be needed.
Fair enough, but reliability with any brand can be hit and miss - when I worked at Currys most of the TV returns we had were Samsung, so you have to question how much extra you're willing to pay for the perceived reliability of a brand.

No, it's not. The picture quality may well be stunning though be in no doubt these are poorly manufactured devices with inherent issues.
Surely picture quality is kind of what you want in a tv...

This deal represents fantastic value for money money.

This has an IPS panel but the 55" version of the same TV has a VA panel. What's the difference between the two panel types, is one better than the other?

As usual, just a reminder that Toshiba doesn't make it's own TVs (like every other brand apart from LG, Sony and Samsung). This is a Turkish Vestel TV. Go for a Hisense instead.
Doesn't really matter who makes it, I have the 43 Inch version also made by Vestel and it's as good as my Sony, if not slightly better and that was twice the price.

thanks for the reassurance. I dont need it really as had 2 years free with Sky on retention they keep giving me 50 or 100 credit as well as 60% off but there have been times when ive been without service this plugs a soccer weekend till they ring me back with the freebie
I've used the sports day passes a few times; 24 hours after activation it just stops. You get a countdown of how long you've got left but it won't charge anything to a credit card. It only activates when you start to watch so you can enter your code, leave it a few hours, then activate it. Your 24 hours starts from the activation time.
ive got a free one day sports pass on 2 email addresses. thinking of using them weekend after canx sky. what happens after 24 hours does it just charge your credit card 6.99 or does it just stop. anyone know

I had the Free MCds for 2 months, went to cancel and it gave me promotion of 4 months at £3.99 /month.. highly suspect account specific but since there are no contracts you can just cancel, see what you get and then join again if you need.
B&M have these for the same price. They also have the three month Entertainment pass one
I got this with 4 months for £7 at Widnes!
To be fair this is a pretty standard price. Not voted either way!
I know, I have asked for it to be removed as when I was editing the first one it said this page has not been found which is why I posted another one.

You would do so much better to buy a Wii from CEX and some games as an introduction to gaming..

Its like the tablets, buy them an ipad.
Turnip
Got the kids one last Christmas. Bought numerous games to go with it. They're all just a bit repetitive and boring if I'm honest. Not been played for months!
Same for me. They love the tablets though but the apps are expensive unless you get one of the Amazon app card deals when they are on.
Better off with a wii, these are crap. And expensive in long run.
Can you play as a 2 player? Trying to think if I have to buy two as I have 2 children?

The white ones are not HDMI are they? The black ones are. Best check your connections. All of the GoT box sets are on Now TV but mine says less than 2 weeks to watch them. No adverts on either the box sets or the new series on Now.

Yes, they are HDMI & come with the cable too!;)
all NOWTV boxes are sideloaded blocked now.get a Roku...
Can the white ones still be sideloaded or has it been blocked on those too?
The old white boxes have HDMI, but they're not as good performers as the current black boxes. A problem with these passes from old boxes is that they won't be recognised automatically. You'll need to go through Sky support to get a new code.
This is a good deal for the passes alone. Hope they have them in my branch! Heat from me. Thanks op.

When he visits my nephew laughs at my 19 inch TV and asks how I cope with such a small screen.I reply that he spends half his waking hours looking at videos on the 5 inch screen of his beloved mobile phone.
in five years all the idiots will be saying "you need a good 50 inch TV in the bedroom"
funny I'll say, "my 8" inch has done quite nicely all these years" ;) XD

Just ordered it for our flat so hoping from the reviews on here it lives up to the expectations. :D
Really happy with this tv, never had a smart tv before so still discovering all the thing it can do, but was easy to set up didn't read instructions as everything came up on the tv, price was good too. Not much more I can say but would recommend. !!

Bought this for £199 7 months ago and it is GREAT.

Highly recommended!
This is my TV and I could not recommend it enough. I had a few problems with a Sharp and a Toshiba. This beats both of those hands down! Sound and visual quality are fantastic.
should i return it faulty when i get to my car with it, or wait till i get home and switch it on. :D heat added just keep your receipt.

People, please don't ask about true 4K at this budget. :D You would never get a true 10bit 4K TV at this price.It will be 8bit but will be absolutely fine for more than 90% of us anyway at this price :D
Hisense do 'real 4K' around this price.
Also, HDR and 4K are totally separate so please don't say that 4K is not possible because 10bit isn't really available at this price.

I'd never factor in Topcashback payments in the price of the deal, they have a habit of declining payments for no particular reason, always a bonus if you receive it though.
Amazed how hot this has got!

I suppose you could buy a couple of the boxes with 3 months entertainment that retail for £14.99 & sell the boxes for £5 each.
Or wait till the nowtv box with 6 months entertainment comes up again for £19 - don't have to worry about cash back schemes ;)
The last time we did a new customer promotion through TCB for NowTV the cash back didn't track. Missing cash back claim still "waiting for NowTV" nearly two months later...

Dang I missed out. I've been looking for one around this price. Can't justify spending much more than that when I already have YouTube and everything on my TV, would just love to be able to show my games and photos etc on my TV
Good to play iOS games on (stuff like the mega drive ones) but generally outdated. Most TVs have this built in now don't they?
Sold out...
Might be much better off with a firestick. Was interested in this for Plex but a quick Google suggests the official Plex app is only available on the TV 4. I'm sure there's an unofficial way if you are inclined. Cheers Si

Yes but by the time you add in the cost of a flux capacitor it works out the same ;)
or you can try the free waiting method, works well cheeky
Better check with Mystic Meg then because there's no guarantees it it will be that cheap again.
It will - in Black friday sale - but that is 4 months away...

Again, speculation.

I thought the Fire Stick would have had a better discount on Prime Day but the Echo got a massive discount.

Or PRC Direct have it for £599 with 6% quidco makes it £563.06
£629 with 5 year warranty with JL price match
Each to his own on the warranty, however personally I never understood the point on buying the warranty on lower end (ie cheaper) TVs as you are effectively paying 12% on top of the TV price which is a lot when you already have the standard 1 year for free and the additional protection under EU law.
I can see the sense when spending £1000 or more but then the 70 quid is a much smaller percentage of the overall price and you could justify the cost then.

Forget anything about running apps on this.The Samsung (different model) we bought 6 months ago has had PUSH updates that have rendered all the apps it came with useless. They have either been disabled or replaced by pay versions.Fortunately we only got it for the screen - I don't know why Samsung bother with the smarts!

Before anyone gets too excited, Toshiba don't make their own TVs anymore and are all re-branded turkish Vestel's. Same as all of the other well known brands apart from Samsung, LG and Sony.
Just pick up any unbranded TV and it will be literally identical.
Didnt realise that! Thanks
Take it this would be a better deal from richer sounds?

https://www.richersounds.com/product/tv---all/lg/49-inch-smart-4k-hdr/lg-49uh610v



This man knows. Loads of vestel tv's knocking about these days.
I was going to spend about a grand on a 65 inch Samsung but now I am just going to wait for Costco or similar store offering a 5 year guarantee to do one for around 600, not bothered about the 10 bit hdr stuff now as there is always going to be something new on tv's. Just wish there wasn't such a big jump in price from 55 inch to 65 inch.

shouldn't this be £538.99?
the Samsung promotion is separate which you send off once you purchase item and surrender an old TV
if RIcher sounds price match you may get 6 yr guarantee too
I didn't want to put the price to include the cashback since it's at the discretion of Samsung and the initial outlay of £638.99 still needs paid. But yeah - all being well it should be £538.99 after the cashback.
*UPDATE* Noticed that wasn't clear in the title so changed it to try and be clearer.
I also tried Richer Sounds but they won't match the price.


thanks nick, I read the Samsung promotion. there is no criteria for the TV you give. it has to be at least 32" and working. great for someone looking to upgrade. pity there is no extended warranty. I checked john lewis, but they don't have this model in stock

I have the Shield but also have the older none android Q10 and its been the best media player ive ever had, your voting down a box you know nothing about. The Q10 runs Android 7 and is the first Android box to be able to play full Bluray rips it also supports Dolby True-HD, Dolby True-HD ATMOS, DTS:X, DTS-HD MA, 5.1/7.1 LPCM, DTS, and Dolby Digital AC3 and i dont think the Shield supports DTSX. The Q10 is a way better media player than the Shield will ever be as it was designed solely for that purpose if your looking for a media streamer for Netflix 4K and the like the Shield is the way to go but most TV's have that all built in i know my B6 OLED does. The Q10 will play anything you throw at it and supports 10tb HDD's.

I already researched it, stopped when it didnt say Android TV and said Android, the OS designed to run on mobile phones not for TV,straight away limiting the 4K streaming capabilites.

I had one of these on the black Fri deal @£150 however colour bleed on reds / oranges with a strange haze fluorescent haze around faces made it unbearable so it had to go back. I would have kept it had it not been for this problem. I found some documentation regarding this issue but it seems not every set suffers from it. Very strange !!
Thanks for all the comments guys. Like I say, I'm not expecting massive things from this, but not arsed at that price,plus with 12 MTH no quibble warranty, I can't complain. Was 2 there when I was in, but reviewing previous comments, it seems Tesco is the place to go for a tech bargain at mo. Sound wise, will try and pick up a cheap sound bar. I'm just happy to have 3 HDMI ports now, was a nightmare just having 2. Hoping it copes well with PS4 games being 1080p so time will tell.thanks for the heat guys
Not an AV freak but a word of warning, I was using a Blaupunkt TV over the weekend and there just did not seem to be any bass in the audio at all - rather bizarre considering this brand are known for their loud and bassy car speaker systems...

Good find. Tesco are having a range change on their TV's so there should be deals in all stores. I managed to get a Samsung UE49K5500 for £260, so the deals are there to be had. No doubt the AV Police will be here soon saying your find isn't as good as a £1200 Panasonic, but this is a great TV for the money nonetheless

A Guide to Buy Good and Cheap TVs

History of TelevisionThe TV set has come a long way since it was first made commercially available, but the basic set-up still remains: a screen with speakers and some sort of receptor. The iconic glowing, rectangular screen that we've all spent many an hour gazing into is our window onto the wider world. To borrow the public broadcasting mantra from the first BBC Director General Lord Reith: it informs, educates, and entertains all of us. The way we watch television may have changed with new technological developments, from the VCR to satellite and cable television to the arrival of the internet, but television as a feature of society is definitely here to stay.

From Cathode Ray Tubes to Smart TVs

The invention of the television was, in truth, the cumulative result of the works of various different scientists, corporations, technicians and inventors in the late 19th century and early 20th century. It's generally accepted, however, that it was the Scottish inventor, John Logie Baird who managed to put all these different devices together to produce a moving broadcasted image. In 1925, Baird gave the world's first demonstration of television at Selfridge's Department Store in London. Since the human face didn't have enough contrast for the equipment of the time, the image broadcasted was that of "Stooky Bill", a ventriloquist's dummy who talked and moved and whose painted face had a higher contrast.

Baird's "Televisor", sold in the UK from 1930 to 1933, is widely considered to be the world's first mass-produced television set, and then followed a slow but steady stream of TVs from various manufacturers in Europe and North America throughout the early '30s, most notably German company Telefunken's cathode ray tube TVs released in 1934. It's estimated that 19,000 electronic TV sets were made in Britain before the start of World War II.

A combination of wartime technological developments, the lifting of the freeze on manufacturing and a drop in prices as a result of mass production saw the use of television skyrocket in the post-war era. In 1947, there were just 15,000 households in the UK with a TV. By 1952, this number had reached 1.4 million and had reached 15.1 million by the end of the 1960's. By this time, colour television was fairly widespread and BBC One, BBC Two and ITV were broadcasting regularly in colour.

Flat Screen TV

By 1992, the old cathode ray tube display television sets had been almost completely supplanted across the world by flat panel display TVs, and by the mid-90's, LCD and LED TVs had come to dominate the market, with plasma flat-screens television arriving in the early 2000's.

The age of digital television began in the late 2000's, with governments worldwide setting deadlines for the end of analogue broadcasting. In the United Kingdom, this process of "digital switchover" began in October 2007 and ended in October 2012. It's expected that the global switchover will have been completed by the end of the 2010's, and as technology continues to develop, it's certain that the television set will go with it.

Different Types of Television Sets

For many years, all television sets used cathode ray tubes. The last twenty years have seen an explosion of different kinds of TV technology like LED, LCD and flat-screen plasma TVs. Each different kind of television set has its own strengths and weaknesses and works better in varying circumstances. Here's a quick overview of the main types of television technology:

  • Samsung UHDCathode Ray Tube: As previously mentioned, cathode ray tube TVs, or CRT TVs for short, were the only kind of television set from the 1930's until the 1990's. They work by shooting electron streams through a vacuum, using a kind of electron "gun", onto a fluorescent screen. This type of technology needs space to work effectively – this is why the CRT TVs are bigger and heavier than their more modern counterparts, which by now have largely taken their place. The larger the screen, the bigger and heavier the TV set, meaning that practicality dictated a maximum of a 36-inch screen. Despite the size and weight issues, CRT televisions are still valued by some industries, such as broadcasting and professional photography, due to their wide viewing angle and contrast and colour fidelity.
  • Plasma: Plasma TVs are lit by many tiny cells, which are filled with supercharged gases that are not dissimilar to fluorescent lamps. They are much slimmer than their CRT counterparts due to not needing an electron gun and were the first commercially available flat-screen TVs. Plasma technology has a high contrast and colour fidelity and it allows for large screens, usually between 42 inches and 65 inches, as well a wide viewing angle.
  • Liquid Crystal Display: Liquid crystal displays or LCDs create images on the screen by utilising the reflective nature of liquid crystals and a backlight of CCFL (cold-cathode fluorescent lamps). Lighter and less cumbersome than plasma televisions, LCD TVs also consume less energy. The size can range from 15 inch to 70 inch models and they are currently the most popular kind of TV set though they're not without their drawbacks. For some time, LCD TVs did not reproduce the colour or contrast as faithfully as plasma screen TVs. In more recent years, the CCFL has been replaced by LED backlighting, which for all intents and purposes has eliminated this problem. The newest LCD technology on the market, the OLED (organic light emitting diodes) are the thinnest option presently available and require no backlight. Even so, plasma TVs still beat their LCD counterparts in terms of wide-angle viewing and the colour of the images tends to fade on an LCD set when viewed from above, below or from either side.
  • Rear Projection: Rear projection televisions, or RPTVs, utilise digital light processing technology whereby light is emitted by a lamp and reflected through a colour wheel by microchips fitted with tiny mirrors, thus creating an image. Not as bulky as CRTs, but still larger than plasmas or LCDs, RPTVs start at 50 inches and can be larger than 90 inches diagonally. The colour and contrast fidelity on RPTVs tends to be of a high standard, and in general, they go for a lower price than a flat-screen. They do, however, sometimes have a "rainbow effect" problem, caused by the colour wheel though this is less common with the newer models. It's also necessary to replace the bulbs in the lamps from time to time which can be, of course, a bit of hassle if it blows at an inopportune time.
  • Front Projection: A popular option for home theatres, front projection uses the same principle as a big-screen cinema. Most projectors use LCD, LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon) or DLP (digital light processing) technology, although some still use CRT. A clean, white wall or special viewing screen is necessary to view the image on, and having control over the lighting is very important, bearing in mind that any light that shines on the surface will dim the image. It's a great option for a party, whether it's a sporting event, election night or for party visuals, but it's expensive to set up. This is, among other reasons, because projectors don't include speakers, meaning it requires an additional expense for good sound quality.

TV Compact Buying Guide

Getting Your Head Round the TV Specs

When shopping for a new TV, you'll encounter a whole world of features and specifications to try and make sense of. Some of them apply to both plasma and LCD TV sets, while others are only relevant to LCD/LED sets. To help make things a bit clearer, here's a short overview of the most important specs and what they mean for potential TV shoppers.

  • ResolutionHD vs. 4K Ultra HD: Most HDTV (High-Definition Television) sets of 40 inches or above have 1920 x 1080 ppi (pixels per inch). A set with this resolution provides great detail and is a solid option for those not wanting to shell out a lot of cash for an Ultra HD/4K TV set. Ultra is unquestionably great, in terms of picture quality. Small onscreen objects are more clearly defined and text is sharper, too. In general, images are much richer and more lifelike than with their HD counterparts. The problem with Ultra or 4K (as they are interchangeably known) is that there is very little compatible content out there at the moment. Currently, no channels broadcast in 4K and there are only a few websites that stream such content. There are some Netflix programmes that do so, for example.
  • Refresh Rate: Faster is better – this is true for the refresh rate which indicates how often per second a picture is refreshed on a TV screen. The minimal refresh rate – expressed in Hertz (Hz) – is 60 times per second. Firm pictures are created today with a rate of 120 Hz, somtimes you´ll also find TVs where the rate is doubled up to 240 Hz.
  • A cheaper option is to buy a smaller TV size, usually 1366 x 768 ppi though these sets have to scale down 1080 ppi images to fit to the smaller resolution. This can sometimes cause the images on a 768 ppi TV set to appear less sharp or have less depth than those on a 1080 ppi model. If you're thinking of buying a small HDTV, measuring 40 inches or less, you can expect a 1080 ppi set to be around 25 % more expensive than their 768 ppi counterparts, and most experts claim that the difference in price is well worth the difference in quality.
  • Contrast: Contrast, essentially, refers to the difference between the lightest images and the darkest images that a screen can create. This is generally determined by the darkness of the blacks. After the resolution, the contrast is probably the most important element in determining the quality of an image. The deeper and stronger the blacks, the sharper the colours are, and the more they pop out of the screen. If, however, the blacks are more like greys, the contrast is less and the resulting image can appear washed out and fuzzy.
  • Smart apps usingInternet Connectivity: Most big-name TV sets manufactured these days will have the ability to connect to the internet either by cable or wirelessly, using your router at home. This gives you the ability to access content that's stored on the other computers on your home network, as well as any content on the internet, such as that provided by YouTube, Netflix and Amazon Prime.
  • 3D Support: Despite most of the major TV manufacturers having a wide range of 3D TVs on the market, 3D is still a fledgling area of television, mostly because at the moment, there aren’t enormous amounts of 3D content out there. This will be changing in the not-too-distant future and it's an option worth considering if you want to get your TV ready for the revolution when it comes! If you want to watch 3D movies on your TV, you´ll have to make sure you have a 3D compatible Blu ray-player or another source with 3D content and 3D glasses for the viewers.
  • HDMI Connections: Most TV sets today have one or two HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) ports. HDMI is essentially a cable and port technology that can transfer uncompressed video and audio data from a compliant source, such as a laptop, to a compatible video projector, computer monitor or TV set. It's very useful for playing something from your computer and watching it on a bigger screen, higher-quality screen and also a great option for video gamers.
  • Curved TVs: Another feature mostly of OLED TVs and 4K LCDs is a curved screen. The idea behind this is an even more in depth-viewing experience. TVs featuring a curved screen are often very expensive, but the actual effect is only perceptible for a few people sitting in the centre in front of the TV – for others, the viewing angle is very limited.

Size Matters: How Big To Buy a TV?

In terms of TV size, bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Obvious factors, such as the size of your room, as well as whether or not it has to fit in an entertainment centre or cabinet, need to be taken into account – not to mention your budget. There is also a direct, mathematically-equatable correlation between the size of a screen and the distance you're sitting from it. The "ideal" screen size fills up a certain size of your field of vision, though the debatable part is exactly how big that "ideal size" should be.

Curved screen

There have been various formulas devised to try to find the optimal viewing angle, but it seems that no one can really find total agreement on the issue. Nonetheless, the general rule of thumb when thinking of what size television to plum for is that the images on very large TV sets look better when you're a bit further away. Taking into account the different opinions on the matter, the most common formula for calculating this is to measure the viewing distance in inches and then divide that by 3. So, if you'll be sitting 10 feet from the TV set, or 120 inches, then 120 divided by 3 means that a 40 inch screen is best for you. This formula works using centimetres too, for those who prefer to use the metric system.

The other issue with TV size is how much you want it to "dominate" the room it will be housed in. A simple test to gauge an idea of this is to make a cardboard cut-out of the size (or sizes) you're thinking of buying, and just seeing how they fare in the intended room.

TV Sets For Gamers and Movie Buffs

4k Ultra HD

If you’re a video games fan, chances are that when you’re buying a new TV set, you’ll want something that makes the graphics pop. Ideally, you’ll also be looking for something without a delay between what’s happening on your console and what’s happening on your screen. Too many lives are lost that way...

The gaming industry is growing exponentially. Electronics manufacturers are aware of this and have been forced to raise their game, as it were. In a nutshell, the three main specs that gamers will want to pay attention to include high resolution, a low time-lag from console to screen and a good colour contrast. Sony, Samsung and LG, to name but three companies, are producing high-end TV sets that work just as well - perhaps even better - for gaming as for watching TV.

Essentially, the same set of TV spec criteria for video gaming applies to movie fans too. Those who like to really watch films in a big way will want their home cinema to give a clear, crisp picture and to create an immersive experience. That means nothing less than a 1080 ppi resolution and a high contrast with a strong colour fidelity. Not forgetting that if you’re not using a surround sound system, good, clear loudspeakers are also very important for a movie viewing of the highest quality.

Accessorise Your TV Experience

You can get a much richer experience from your TV and home cinema by combining it with the right accessories. Finding the right furniture for a TV set is a big part of this, and there's a wide range of TV stands, brackets, cabinets, and home cinema units that you can choose from to make your television set fit perfectly into its surroundings. There are also various cables and extensions that can improve your home viewing experience. For example, an HDMI splitter will allow you to plug more than one HDMI compatible device into a port at the same time. It's a great option for gamers! Remote controls are a popular accessory too, especially when you want to combine the functions of two or three remotes into one, for the sake of practicality and ease.

Smart apps streaming

For those with their minds set on a real home cinema experience, the purchase of an additional sound system is inevitable. You have the choice of different systems such as sound bars, sound bases or home cinema systems.

Cheap TV Deals: Sales and Shopping Events

From specialist electrical retailers to leading supermarket chains, there's a whole range of online sellers providing a host of different TV sets. It's always worth taking a look at Curry's and Dixon's, two of the UK's leading electrical goods retailers to find the best price. Supermarket giants like Tesco and ASDA also usually stock a wide range of TV sets, as well as Argos and the online giant Amazon.

Among the biggest producers of TVs are Samsung, LG Electronics, Sony, Panasonic, Sharp and Philips.

Throughout the year, you can find TVs deals, though certain times are better than others. If you're not looking to get an absolute top –of-the-range model, then June is often a good time to shop great deals on the older models. Many TV manufacturers launch their new TVs around this time leading to a drop in price of the old ones around the beginning of the summer.

Of course, the January Sales are often a great time to pick up a bargain on a new TV set, as well as at the end of November when the Black Friday sales take place – thus unofficially marking the beginning of the Christmas period, during which prices on a range of televisions are often drastically slashed.
