We all have our favourite films, sports, soaps… now see them in a new light with our range of televisions. Find the perfect TV from top brands including Samsung TVs and those from LG, Panasonic, Hitachi, Sony, Philips and more. These days, you can find different TVs for different needs. To sit on a chest of drawers in the bedroom, look for a compact 32 inch TV that doesn’t take up too much precious space. Or, for a family film viewing in the living room, a 65 inch TV is big enough that everyone gets a clear view.
If you’re an avid TV-viewer, go one step beyond 4K TVs, 4K HDR and even 4K Ultra HD TVs. Look for one of the highest quality televisions on the market, which use Samsung’s QLED (quantum dot LED) technology, or LG’s OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology. Though they abbreviate similarly, these two technologies are vastly different, with QLED utilising traditional LED backlights, and OLED creating a display out of millions of light-emitting pixels. If you’re curious, check out our Samsung QLED TVs and OLED TVs for a sharp, diverse colour palette and crystal-clear picture quality.
Freeview provides a huge number of staple channels, but if you’re looking for more variety, especially shows from abroad, there are many options out there for on-demand viewing. Popular subscription favourites include Netflix, NOW TV, Hulu, Amazon Prime, but there are plenty of free services such as YouTube, BBC iPlayer, 4OD and more. These are all easily accessible through smart TVs, which connect to your Wi-Fi. They can even be used as sound systems, through Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music or a good old aux cable. Don’t fret if you still have Blu-ray or even DVDs to watch, just get a TV DVD combi or Blu-ray player. Alternatively, run them on your laptop and use Chromecast to watch on the big screen.
Once your TV is sorted and you’ve lined up your favourite shows and movies, it’s well worth exploring other audio options, as even basic sound systems are a big improvement on television speakers. Some sound bars come with subwoofers for added bass, which really make you feel the oomph (but check with the neighbours as that bass really passes through walls!). The Sonos Beam is the gold standard of sound bars and doubles up as a smart speaker too. For maximum immersion, go for a home cinema system including subwoofer, 5.1 surround sound and Dolby technology.
With the technical stuff out the way, make your home cinema work for your living space. Large TV, limited space? TV wall brackets save you room and some allow your TV to pivot once it’s up there. Many TV stands also contain storage for remotes, cables, TV boxes, routers and more. If you’re not so keen on how televisions look, perhaps Samsung’s The Frame is the TV for you. Designed to look like a normal picture frame, they can suit the décor you’ve work so hard to maintain and become a seamless part of the room.
