Imagine having the newest television, a Samsung 8K television, with a vibrant, amazing 65 inch screen, on a wall in your home. Imagine! After we published an announcement article about this television, one reader quickly commented at the bottom of that page, “Whoa!” That sums it up! I can’t believe that we are able to offer one of these as a contest prize at Best Buy. Samsung is so innovative to create this TV and so generous to send us one to give away on the blog! Read below to learn why I am beyond breathless with excitement about this contest, and to learn how to enter for your chance to win this fantastic television.

My favourite features in the Samsung QLED 8K TV

There are too many marvelous new features in this television to put in a short contest announcement article like this; so, I want to focus on my favourite three features: 8K upscaling, built-in intelligence, and Ambient Mode.

Upscaling technology takes all content to a new level

If I had this television, the first thing I’d watch is the first Harry Potter movie. Seriously. My DVD copy isn’t even widescreen! This would be the ultimate test of the new upscaling technology. Samsung says this television uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to upscale “4K or lower resolution content to appear in stunning near-8K quality for improved details, sharpened edges and reduced noise.” Of course, I also could not wait to see the newest Avengers: Endgame on this huge incredible screen too. What would you watch first to see how different it will be in 8K?

Smart Samsung TV

My current TV is quite dumb. I have to connect multiple steaming boxes for it to mildly resemble a smart TV. In comparison, this Samsung TV is Einstein-like. First of all, it has an “Intelligence Mode” that senses lighting and audio in the room to adjust brightness and volume. So you’ll hear voices over the background without having to touch the remote. Of course, it couldn’t claim to be smart if it wasn’t also flexible: you can control it with the remote, or with Samsung’s voice assistant Bixby, or with a Google Assistant, or with Amazon’s Alexa—even using Airplay 2. Basically everything my streaming boxes—all of them—can do, it can do better!

And the Tizen operating system puts all of your favourite content right where you can most easily access it. That includes the channels that I watch most often, Netflix and Prime Video. Can you see now why I am so excited about this prize?

A television that impresses even when turned off

Walk into my living room, and there on the wall is a big black hole of bleak nothingness. I put up with this unaesthetic, monstrous, peek into the dark recesses of an empty shell for what it can do when turned on. Samsung decided that they can do better. Enter Ambient Mode. This is by far my favourite feature of Samsung’s new televisions. Look at the image on the left for a glimpse of what it can do; see how it blends into the background of the wall behind it! Such a brilliant idea!

With Ambiant Mode, when you turn off your TV it displays an image of the wall behind, or a family photo … Think of the possibilities! No more blackness on a major wall of your room. Put art there; put your child’s baby photo, or a funny pic of your pet. Your TV can now express your personality, your life, even when it’s not entertaining you with a movie.

Samsung 8K televisions are superior

It’s an undeniable fact. Some televisions are better than others. Some televisions deliver a better audio-visual experience simply because they are a better product. And who doesn’t want a better movie experience, better sports experience, and better all-round television in their own homes? Do you? Carefully follow the instructions below and you might have this fabulous Samsung QLED 8K television in your home very soon.


Entering this contest is easy, but you can only enter once. I told you what my favourite feature is of this television. To enter this contest, you must:

  1. Share (either on social media, in an email, or in person) what your favourite feature of this new Samsung 8K television is, and
  2. Tell us in a comment below this article what your favourite feature is and how you told others about it.

So, a valid entry will have both of those pieces of information. For example, if I was entering this contest I’d put this in a comment below, “I told people about Ambient Mode in an article on the Best Buy Blog.”


At the end of this contest, one valid entry will be selected and that person will win a Samsung 65″ 8K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV.

This contest will run from April 12th until May 5th.

Remember you can only enter once. However, this is a big contest, with a big prize that you really don’t want to keep quiet about. It’s an 8K TV! Tell your friends and family.

  1. 4000 nits brightness is amazing and funny how samsung decided to reach this brightness level when they use hdr10+ instead of Dolby vision. That’s my favorite feature and I shared it with my fiance in person after buying a 75″ NU8000 at bestbuy in April 2019.

  2. My favourite feature by far is the resolution. I told my friends about this 8K Samsung 65″ 8K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV that has (7680 x 4320) resolution, which is perfect for watching content made with an 8K RED digital camera!

  3. “I told my brother since I nee da new tv about Ambient Mode how it can show you what is behind the tv, thats awesome for a living room or a bedroom ”

  4. The most up to date technology and sleekness of the QLED would be an absolute pleasure to watch

  7. My most favorite item by far is the ambient mode on the Samsung 65″ 8K UHD HDR QLED Tizen Smart TV!! I told my family by email, my home decor specialist by person as well as a host of other family, friends and co-workers! Haha!!

  8. Wild 8K tv! A favourite feature is 8K. 8K is another step that pushes the boundaries of picture quality. Every upgrade immerses us deeper into new worlds blurring the lines between looking out a window or looking into the screen.
    – Shared over email.

  9. My favourite feature is ambient mode which I find very cool. It looks like a frame but is really a giant 65 inch tv which no one would suspect. I told my friends in person about this amazing futuristic technology.

  10. I love true-to-life 8K HDR picture but the ‘Ambient Mode’ background setting feature is genius. It’s is the perfect solution for anyone wanting a giant TV in an aesthetically pleasing space – like us! I added this TV to my wish list, told my hubby about it, and tweeted about it.

  11. Intelligence Mode sounds very appealing. I love that it senses lighting and audio in the room and adjusts the brightness and volume. I just shared this with my husband and we both agree that this would be a very nice TV to have.

  12. I just told my mom about this TV and the cool “Intelligence Mode”. This is my favourite feature as I would think it would come in handy when there is background noise and the volume would adjust automatically.

  13. I shared my favourite feature, the Dynamic Quantum HDR 32X technology, on my twitter account.

  14. I’m all about clutter free so i tweeted about my favourite feature: the “One Invisible Connection”!
