The best TV for streaming movies and series

Do you want to stream movies and series from a video service like Netflix? Then you need at least a smart TV. As more and more services offer videos in 4K and HDR, it's useful if the TV supports these imaging technologies. This way, you can enjoy the optimum sharpness and colors. I've selected the best choices for you.

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.
