For many Aussies, sport is in their DNA and finals night is a sacred ritual. Sure, there is nothing like being there in person to cheer on your team but watching from home also has a certain appeal (particularly if it’s pouring outside!). Now is the time to make sure you have the best TV set-up to enjoy these feats of athleticism from the comfort of home. Luckily, the latest Hisense TVs are stacked with all the features that will make your place the place to be at kick off. Having the best TV with the latest tech – crystal-clear picture quality, lightning-fast processor speeds and pitch-perfect audio – is your front-row ticket to all the action.
To help you pick the right Hisense TV for your home entertainment line-up, here are the top features to look for:
When it comes to selecting the right picture technology for your needs, Hisense has something for everyone.
Laser TVs, particularly Hisense Laser TVs, are for when you want the biggest picture possible without breaking the bank. You can get up to a 120” 4K picture, which in some brands will set you back the price of a luxury car but with Hisense this is an affordable reality.
OLED TVs are considered the best in the business for lighting control and deep blacks, and Hisense OLED is no different. ULED TVs are famous for being able to show a wide range of colours – Hisense ULED can get very bright, so they’re better suited to watching the game in a bright room on a sunny day.
Another top contender in the brightness stakes, Hisense Mini LED TVs take the best of ULED, shrink down the LEDs so they have almost the same light control as OLED, and make a television that’s better than the sum of its parts.
other brands’ TVs with the same feature set. “The Hisense U8HAU series can display more than one billion shades of colour, features both Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ Adaptive, and has an Auto Sports mode for the best sports viewing experience,” says John Milonas, The Good Guys Buyer – Televisions and Accessories. “A Hisense U8HAU series TV is perfect for watching the game with your mates, thanks to the 4K picture and wide viewing angles. It’s the next best thing to being in the stands for the action.”
Of course, when it comes to sport, the picture is only half the experience. One of the big features of the U7HAU series TVs is Dolby Atmos, which makes you feel like the sound is coming from all around you. Gone are the days of stereo or 5.1 surround sound, now audio is all about simulating the experience of 27 speakers all around you.
As well as Atmos, the U8HAU series also features DTS Virtual: X, which is another object-based sound codec with the power to boost dialogue audio.
If you want to take the audio experience to the next level, you can get a Hisense soundbar which gives you better sound quality, more control and if you have a Hisense TV with EzPlay you can operate both with just the TV remote.
If you’re a picture nerd, there are so many ways to customise your picture to get the colour tones and HDR brightness exactly how you like it. Luckily, for the rest of us, Hisense has made it easy by including settings like Sports Mode, Filmmaker Mode and Game Mode. All you need to do is select the one you want.
Sports Mode turns up the refresh rate for a smoother picture and adapts the audio to focus on the frequencies that matter most.
Game Mode Pro with HDMI 2.1 brings next gen gaming 4K@120hz! This is great for those times when you want to switch from the World Cup to have a go at it yourself with the FIFA video game, prioritising a variable refresh rate and reducing input lag.
The VIDAA U6 interface is the operating system for the latest ULED and OLED Hisense Smart TVs, and puts the world’s best streaming services right at your fingertips.
Gone are the days of SD and HD pictures limiting which screen size you can get. With 4K Ultra HD pictures, you can get up close to the action. You only need to sit about 2.5m away from a 100” 4K picture to get the full experience, so the Hisense short throw projector, which goes up to 120”, is suited to more homes than you might think. If that’s a bit big for your needs, the 85U7HAU 85” TV is right in that sweet spot for most living rooms.
If you are new to Hisense, you might have a few questions. For instance, does Hisense TV have Bluetooth? Absolutely, most models have Bluetooth 5.0.

How to update a Hisense TV
Most Hisense TVs will automatically update, but if you think it’s time for an update, go to Settings > Support > System Update and then follow the prompts.
Go to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset. Or, depending on which model you have, go to Settings > About TV > Restore to factory default.
