Big-screen sports viewing rocks. Whatever your code of choice, a large screen is great for drawing you deep into the action and displaying your favourite game in superb detail.
Better than being there? Maybe. Especially when you combine the amazing camera work of today’s coverage and the great pictures available on a Samsung television.
For a TV sporting experience worthy of a major international competition or Aussie footy grand final you should go large. But how large?
TVs are measured on the diagonal. So a 55 inch widescreen TV measures 55 inches from the bottom left corner to the top right. Think there’s not much difference between a 55 and 65 inch screen?
"Samsung Smart TV provides loads of size options, from 60, 65 and 75 inch UHD models, right up to the 88 inch KS9800 SUHD model"
A 65 inch KU6000 Samsung Smart TV provides as much as 35% more viewing real estate than a 55 inch KU6000 Samsung Smart TV. And a 70 inch KU6000 provides 80% more than a 50 inch KU6000. That’s massive!
Invite your friends over for the big match and even those at the back of the room will be able to see the action on a 65 or 75 inch Samsung Smart TV. Watch your team on a 78 inch (KS9500 model) or 88 inch Samsung Smart TV (KS9800 SUHD model) and you can enjoy an experience as amazing as it is huge!
A 55 inch (and above) TV is a great canvas for favourite Full HD sports events. And with Samsung curved screen TVs you can enjoy incredibly immersive viewing with a reduced reflection zone1, for an experience that helps you feel amazingly close to the contest playing out on the screen.
Rugby league and soccer tragics will appreciate Sports Mode, which optimises sound and picture settings on compatible Samsung Smart TVs to help re-create the stadium experience. It can also analyse a match as it unfolds, monitoring for those moments when the score changes, the crowd goes wild, or the commentators go off. A compatible Samsung Smart TV then automatically records that part of the match to a connected compatible USB hard drive (sold separately) so you can relive the highlights over and over.2
Watch great sport, any time
There are loads of great sporting fixtures to enjoy on a big screen Samsung Smart TV. You can watch the UEFA League Grand Final at the end of May, set a reminder for Wimbledon from June 27, tune into the Summer Olympics from 5-21 August, and follow up with the Paralympics and AFL and NRL grand finals in September and October.3
You can also access great sport at any time by downloading apps from the Smart Hub on a Samsung Smart TV. Enjoy Aussie Rules via the AFL Game Analyser, or tap into diverse codes from around the world with apps from Livesport.tv, NBL.tv, ESPN3, UFC.tv, MyMadrid and Golfing World TV.3
So is there an ideal TV size for your room?
Really, there’s almost no such thing as too big when it comes to sport, and when it comes to your team and your passion, a big TV is a great way to show your support.
