thread You don't, but if your budget is around £700 then that's
by far the best. You can spend £100 more on the next model up but there's no perceptible difference, or £100 less and lose the processor and Dolby Atmos, and the next step up is £1300 for the lowest model LG OLED (which is remarkably good but beyond most ppl's willingness to spend on a telly).

If you combine UK average hours watching telly with an expectation of a decade lifespan of your telly then that's 0.05p per hour for your £700 telly.

if that helps
permalink Pick a telly you like the look of with a remote your happy with.
There's not a lot of difference between them at that size.

You'll struggle to get better than that LG.

This is the TV box I like the look of:

and this one
the downside being that it needs an aerial for some reason, but it can record 4 things at the same time.

permalink It's because you want to record live telly, isn't it?
permalink yep
