Buying guides




The 3 main technologies to look out for at the moment are:


If you’re looking for:

  • A bright, punchy viewing experience
  • A wide range of screen size options
  • A lightweight TV
  • Energy efficiency

Then consider an LED TV because:

  • LED backlighting allows for a bright image with good picture quality
  • They come in a huge range of screen sizes to cater for any sized room
  • They’re slim and consume less power


If you’re looking for:

  • Exceptional contrast bright, vibrant and accurate colours
  • Smooth, realistic motion 
  • Something that's slim and light

Then consider an OLED TV because:

  • OLED provides unparalleled black levels for a cinematic, immersive experience
  • Each pixel lights up independently, which means you'll see more accurate detail, colour and shades 
  • The faster refresh rate reduces motion blur, creating a sharper, more natural image
  • An OLED TV can be even thinner, as it doesn’t require any backlighting.


If you’re looking for:

  • Brighter and more vibrant, and more diverse colours
  • Energy efficiency
  • A screen that displays decorative content, useful information and photos
  • Reduced glare on a TV screen 

Then consider an QLED TV because:

  • Higher brightness can be achieved through quantum dot technology
  • It delivers the world’s first 100% colour volume - which means more realistic, accurate and vibrant HDR images - regardless of brightness level
  • It has ambient mode, which can display artwork or content on your screen when it's dormant 
  • It includes Samsung's Ultra Black technology which helps absorb or redirect external light to reduce the reflections seen on a screen, making any seat in the house great for watching TV


Whatever type of TV you choose, also consider:

Picture resolution

Picture resolution is measured by the amount of pixels in a screen. The higher the density of pixels, the higher the resolution.


HD ready (High Definition)

  • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Capable of showing broadcasted high definition footage
  • Does not have a High Definition tuner built in, so the services would need to come from external sources such as Sky or Virgin
HD ready

Full HD 1080

  • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • 4x the quality of current broadcasts
Full HD 1080

4K Ultra HD

  • 3,840 x 2,160 pixels
  • 4x the quality of a Full HD picture
  • Even close up, images are clearer, sharper and more realistic
  • Providers are currently creating 4K content, with some already taking the lead, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and UltraFlix
4K Ultra HD

Ultra HD premium

Content creators and distributors such as Samsung, Sony, Netflix and Warner Bros agree that TVs with the Ultra HD Premium sticker must have:

  • 4K resolution (4x the pixels of full HD)
  • 10-bit colour depth (otherwise known as ‘deep colour’)
  • 90% colour space
  • A minimum contrast range
  • TVs that meet these requirements are considered “HDR”
Ultra HD premium

8K Ultra HD 

  • 7680 × 4320 pixels
  • A new resolution that offers the most detailed perspective with even greater depth than 4K
  • 4x resolution of Ultra HD (4K) and 16x resolution of Full HD
  • Upscales any content to 8K resolution
  • Great for large screen viewing with almost no pixelation
Ultra HD premium

HDR (High Dynamic Range)

  • Offers a deeper more lifelike display due to a higher contrast between the brightest whites and darkest blacks which allows for more realistic colour recreation
  • Boost 4K and gives you even greater colour and contrast
  • With HDR you see everything as the creators intended

Screen size

Ideally, your viewing distance should be 1.5 times the size of your screen. Screen sizes are measured diagonally.

Smart TV

  • Smart TVs seamlessly stream online content through your broadband connection, so you can catch up on your favourite shows and connect to social media.
  • When choosing a new television, look at the smart features available – most offer catch-up TV, such as BBC iPlayer and streaming movie services, such as Netflix or Amazon Prime. Most new TVs today are 'smart'.
  • Different TV brands use different operating systems, so certain smart applications work with certain TV brands.
  • If you subscribe to a movie service already, then make sure your new set includes it.

Curved TV

Curved screens improve side angles, so no matter where you're sitting, you’ll have the best possible viewing experience, with an almost wrap-around effect as the screen fills more of your vision.

  • Drastically reduces eye stain and automatically adjusts contrast for a far deeper viewing experience
