Which 4K TV of these 3 is best?

Found 18th May
Hello all, i am looking to buy a 4K TV in time for the world cup. I'm torn between these 3 TV's, which one is the best please? Or is there a better one for similar price range? I'm not bothered about SMART features like OnDemand because the TV will be constantly plugged into the PC. Freeview HD Channels i am bothered about though. It will not be used for Gaming either. Has to be 40-43 inch as won't fit in my room otherwise.

Philips- amazon.co.uk/Phi…CGW

Will the World Cup be broadcast in 4k?
If you're watching Freeview HD then I'd go for a FHD TV, I find they tend to handle the lower quality pictures better than the 4K ones.

Although I wouldn't expect much difference on a 40/43" TV unless you're pretty close (4' or less).

Everything has enough resolution at that size, the only benefit you'd be getting from 4K is the HDCP 2.2 support for higher bitrate sources - which isn't relevant for Freeview HD.

In short, wait until the 2022 world cup and get an HDR TV. That'll make a far more noticable diffence to picture quality.

Don't think so but i'm upgrading from an old 720p LG so i just want a 4K TV so it's a little bit future proof.

Hmmm thanks for your input but my current TV is an old 32" LG 720p, so i'm need of an upgrade so i thought i'd just buy a 4K TV now so it's a little future proof. I'm not always up to date on the latest TV's so even if the 4K i buy will be outdated a lot in 2022 it won't bother me too much.
