What TV Features Are Best For Watching Sport?

Screen Technology

Whether you choose to watch sport on an OLED or QLED TV, you will experience clean and crisp imagery that makes the action look great from every angle. OLED and QLED TVs may be very similar in name, yet their technology is actually very different. In simple terms, OLED TVs use self-lighting pixels whereas QLED TVs require a LCD backlight. This means that OLED TVs can be thinner and lighter due to having no backlight, and QLED TVs can typically be cheaper for bigger sizes.

Ultra High Definition

Get the on-pitch experience with a sharp and vibrant colour palette and crystal-clear picture quality with a 4K or 8K TV. 8K delivers 16 times more pixels than a Full HD TV and therefore 16 times more High Definition Resolution, making that final lap or winning goal that little bit more rewarding.

TIP: If you see 'UHD' in a TV name, this means the TV has 4K or 8K resolution

Bigger Is Better

With the arrival of 4K and 8K TV technology, gone are the days where you were forced to choose between a big screen and picture quality. Now you can experience all the big sporting moments in the comfort of your own home with an epic-sized screen and pristine image quality.

Stadium Like Sound

Bring the roar of the crowd to your lounge room with a TV that has a Dolby Atmos speaker system. Dolby Atmos is designed to fit in a limited space yet still produce powerful sound, so you will never have to compromise your ultra-thin screen for an immersive audio experience again.

Alternatively, if you have a TV that doesn’t have Dolby Atmos, or if you want to take your home cinema sound to the next level, why not try a sound bar? A sound bar produces powerful, encompassing sound with an easy set-up and a stylishly sleek disposition.
