The best TV for sports

The best sports TV has the ability to display a match as realistically as possible. This is mainly determined by the refresh rate, also known as the Hz value. The higher the Hz value, the smoother the images. On top of that, it's important that image faults, such as discoloration, are limited to a minimum. Want to know which TVs are the best of the best?

Choose your ideal size

Most televisions are available in various sizes. These sizes are indicated in inches. To determine the best size for your room, you should measure the distance between your viewing position and your current TV in centimeters. Multiply this number by 0.2 to find your ideal size in inches. If your viewing distance is, let's say, 2 meters, a 40-inch TV is the best choice. Do note that this is simply a guideline. You can opt for a television that's a couple inches bigger or smaller without experiencing any problems.
