Ever since “Jaws” hit the movie theaters back in 1977 summer has become a time when Hollywood releases its big blockbusters. To the diehard aficionado there are some movies that simply must be experienced in a theater. However, thanks to advances in movie playback and television technology it’s easy to convert just about any room in your house into your very own private screening room. This will allow you to bring the blockbusters right into your theater at any time of year. First, you want to make sure you’ve got the very best in television technology. As you go shopping for new television you might want to keep the following tips in mind:
- Take Good Measurements
There are many TV salespeople who can tell you dozens of stories about consumers buying a television only to return it within hours because it’s the wrong size. Often this is because they are trying swap out an old television for a new television and make it fit the same entertainment center or TV stand. In many cases that just won’t work. Before you head out to the store you need to measure the space where your TV will go and make sure you leave a 2 inch border around the entire set and behind the set that will help with installation and ventilation.
- Consider the Room
There are optimal viewing distances for your new TV that you should consider with regard to screen size. For instance with a 32 inch LCD TV you should have at least 4 to 5 feet between you and the TV. The wider the screen the more space you need. When you get into the 50 inch so then you should be back by at least 8 to 10 feet. These will give you the best results for watching a widescreen feature.
The final issue regarding size has to do whether or not you’ll be able to take your TV home in the back of your SUV. While you might be eager to get everything plugged in and fired up you might also discover that your car is too small and you’ll have to wait for home delivery. Just factor that into your shopping experience.
This same issue applies when it comes to get rid of the old TV. You might not have the space in your car for that task either. That’s why you need to bring in some professional help in the form of experienced junk haulers like Junk King Monterey. These are the guys who can take away your TV in a flash and load it up onto their truck for drop off at a proper recycling facility. As long as are coming over for your TV, this same crew could also take away any other junk you’ve got laying around taking up space. Won’t it make watching movies on your new TV a lot better to know your home is completely free of clutter? Of course it will!
