In general, the distance from the TV to the seat determines the size. As a guideline, you can take that 1 meter is equal to 39 inches. So are you 4 meters away from your TV? Then you need a size of at least 50 inches. Do you watch a lot? Then you can take a larger size.

TV Appearance and models

There are many types of TVs these days. The curved models are relatively new. These models are characterized by the fact that the screen runs in a curve. The advantage of this is that the image is displayed around you, as it were. The model is most suitable for use on a stand and less for hanging on the wall because the corners protrude in relation to the curve.
