should i upgrade my tv

There are a lot of decisions to make when you’re thinking about upgrading your TV. Do you want 4K or 8K? Would you rather have a 55 inch screen or go big with a 75 inch TV? Do you lean toward QLED or are you ready to bring home an OLED TV? The good news is that there are a lot of options in the world of new TVs, and you’ll have a lot of fun making your choice.

Should you upgrade your TV?

If you aren’t 100% sure you need to upgrade your TV, here are a few reasons that may help you decide.

1. Improve your picture quality

If it’s been a few years since you’ve brought home a new TV and you currently have a 720p or 1080p Full HD TV, you’re going to be surprised at the difference in picture quality when you jump between Full HD to a TV with 4K resolution. You can read more about 4K resolution in the 4K TV buying guide.

A 4K TV has brilliant colour reproduction, enhanced contrast ratio, and much sharper details. Everything you watch will be more realistic and immersive, and some of the latest TVs also have the technology to enhance 4K picture quality even more. You can choose TVs with Mini-LED or OLED as the light source for a more detailed picture and spectacular contrast. There are also TVs with AI built in to enhance colour and detail in real time.

2. Improve your sound quality

New TVs are thinner and more lightweight than before, but that doesn’t mean they can’t push out fantastic sound quality. Depending on the TV you choose, you can enjoy cinematic soundtracks with rich bass, loud, clear dialogue, and well-balanced sound for TV shows and more.

New TVs also use AI to enhance audio. Some models have sensors that will measure your room’s audio levels. If the TV detects the ambient noise in the room is louder than the volume of the TV, it will raise the volume automatically so you can hear clearly.

If you decide you want to plug in a sound bar or your home theatre receiver, the latest TVs have eARC ports you can use to connect your sound bar or receiver to create a home theatre surround sound system.

3. You’d like a bigger TV

You can find TVs in sizes ranging from 60 inches all the way up to 98 inches, and a larger screen can give you a much more immersive experience for everything from sports to movies. These screen sizes are available in 4K or 8K resolution, so even with a larger display, your picture quality will be crisp and clear.

Not only are the latest TVs available in bigger sizes, but they are also thin, light, and have a thin bezel too. Depending on the model you choose your new TV could have a bezel that virtually disappears when you turn it on. There are a lot of unique benefits to having TVs with an ultra-thin bezel or a thin frame around the TV. Take Samsung the Frame for example – it provides a beautiful picture when you’re watching movies or TV, then doubles as a work of art when you’re not watching.

4. You want to stream video or use apps on your TV

Smart TVs have revolutionized how we watch movies, listen to music, or control our smart home. If you’ve never had a smart TV you’re going to love how easy it is to watch Netflix, stream YouTube, or rent a movie from Apple or Google. If you have smart home devices you can choose a TV with the Google operating system and use your voice assistant to turn on your lights or lock your door. You can also use your TV as a second screen by connecting it to your computer, or stream your home movies to the TV using AirPlay.

Now is the time to upgrade your TV

Considering how many hours per week we watch, how the newest models are appearing on the market right now, and all of the great features you can find on new displays, there’s never been a better time to upgrade your TV. Once you’ve brought it home you can just plug it in, connect it to your home Wi-Fi network, sit back and enjoy. You’ll be blown away by the colour, quality, and sound of everything you watch.

You can find your new TV at Best Buy right now.
