thread budget is small-ish
as will the telly be, we currently have a 32 which is basically fine, a 37 ould be idea but they are rarer.. a 40 would be a bit chinky for the space

we would stream, but I like having a stash of recorded series etc, we often fall way behind then find stuff is no longer available. it's also better for remembering what you've watched and what you havent.. and obviously means you skip ads, which you cant on ch 4's player
permalink Depending when you last bought a TV
it might be worth going into a shop with a tape measure (currys have paper ones up by the fridges), bezels have got much smaller in the last ten years so you may be able to go up a size. But there aren't many 40"s, it's usually 43".

Probably worth waiting til black friday (or at least a week for retail Christmas to kick in).
permalink yeah, i've measured over the bezel of this one...
going to 40 would be relying on the 'bezel dividend' quite heavily.
