Yeah, a smart TV is THEE way to goHow smart is the the t.v.
Anyone considering a big screen smart TV should know the best viewing distance.No joke—snag this massive RCA 4K model before it sells out.
I don't watch much either. I don't have time. I record for late night. Not much interest.Yeah, a smart TV is THEE way to go
Since living in the woods for five years, I sorta lost track of technology
After moving to town, we shopped around for a good service
We decided our cache of movies would do
Then somebody told us about antennas
Got one for a few bucks
We have many channels...hundreds
No fiddling around with Roku or anything else
Funny thing though
I don't watch it much
Flat screen TV prices are a fraction of what they used to be. We had to buy a new TV way back about 2006....wound up with a Panasonic Plasma 46", and I think we had to pay over $1500, back then, Today, we could probably get 4 or 5 for that price. It still works great, and I hope it lasts another decade.
Get a good surge protector...we have had super protection with a great one - not one of the older models with the green light that stays on - a good surge protector is a worthwhile investment.In order to use a 4K tv, you have to have a 1080p set-up.
Since 2008, we've had a 46" Samsung HD tv, that has a Samsung Surround Sound System and a Samsung Blue-Ray DVD/CD Player hooked up to it. A few years ago, a circuit board blew out on our tv, but a small business tv tech fixed it for us. He came out, checked out the tv, took out the board, took to his shop, replaced it and brought it back/installed it for us. The cost was absolutely super. However, we have learned to shut the tv off when there is a t-storm going on. Found out that lightning will affect the performance of a tv.........as it did ours.
So, bottom line is: we will stick with Samsung.
Yup, Plasma is pretty much obsolete, but with fiber optic TV service, this old set is as crystal clear as any of the newer sets. I suppose it will fail some day, but at today's prices a new TV set is almost "pocket change" compared to what the prices used to be. My wife has a 20" Sanyo CRT tv in her sewing room....at least 20 years old...and that old dude still works good, too.Don M: LED has pretty much replaced plasma and LCD. If you're going to upgrade make sure you get a 100% LED screen as they still are pushing legacy LED/LCD hybrids.

Don M. you are truly a blessed man to have fiber optic cable TV service.
Yes, fiber is far and away the best means of TV/phone/internet. Our local rural electric co-op began offering this service a couple of years ago, and bundling everything under their plan was cheaper than what we had been paying for Dish Network, and landline/internet from Windstream. The TV picture with fiber is outstanding, the phone is crystal clear, and we get 100MB internet, which is 10 times faster than what we had. If fiber optic service ever becomes available in your area....go for it....it is excellent.
