Preparation

It may be difficult to choose from the large assortment. That's why it's useful to ask yourself a few questions beforehand. This way, you'll know what to keep in mind when looking for a new TV.

Size and viewing distance

Viewing distance
  • What size do you want the TV to be? If a lot of devices are paired together, it's difficult to imagine what they look like in your living room. That's why it's useful to determine which size you want at home. If you want the TV in a cabinet or on the wall, you should measure the available space.

  • How far removed will you be from the TV? The viewing distance influences your viewing experience. To find out which size or sharpness you like, you should stand at the same viewing distance as at your home.

Important specifications

TV specifications

You can choose from various specifications in our stores. It's convenient if you'v already read some information about this at home. This way, you're not baffled if you see terms such as HDR or Hz in our stores. I have outlined the most important specifications in an overview.

The specifications

Specification Choice Explanation
Resolution Full HD or 4K The resolution determines the sharpness of the image. 4K is 4 times sharper than Full HD. Note: we only have Full HD TVs up to 40 inches in our stores.
Refresh rate 50 or 100Hz A TV with a higher refresh rate displays fast images of a sports game or action movie much more smoothly.
Colors HDR or SDR You can see around 17 million colors on an SDR screen. On an HDR screen, you can see more than a billion colors. You need an HDR TV if you want to optimally enjoy HDR images.

Note: taking a TV with you

Taking a TV with you

Because the stores do not always have all TVs in stock, you can't immediately take every television with you. Our stores don't have TVs that are 65 inches or larger in their warehouse. Want a TV that's not in stock? We'll deliver the device at your home for free the next day. That saves you a lot of car space, after all.
