Staying at house has not at all been more enjoyable.

You can hit into a virtually endless supply of music and set your feet up to look at entire seasons of The Walking Dead, or your favorite movies.

And, not including the rate of your online or TV connection, the monthly tab for all that activity could be fewer than you expend going out for a movie and a popcorn.

Of course, that’s on you shell out for your new $4,500 65-inch curved 4K TV.

Is it time to upgrading your TV? How do you decide the streaming service that suits you most excellent?

So you’ll have a possibility to plan before the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday, we get you a few answers to those questions.

If your television is not working correctly or has suddenly shut down, you need to look no further than TV Repair Toronto working from last 20 years.

When do you know if it’s time to upgrade your TV?

First, how old is it? If you bought your TV before 2000, you’ll find a outstanding variation in today’s models, even if you buy at entry level.

What is the resolution of your TV? If it is 1080p, you may be OK to continue with that for a while longer before upgrading to 4K. But if your screen resolution is 720p or less, you’ll most likely welcome an upgrade. With the worth of 4K TVs falling, you can get one as low as $1,000. Though, if your home theatre needs a 70-inch-plus screen, get prepared to shell out upwards of $10,000 or more.

Is your TV fat or super skinny? Even if it has a flat screen, if you can’t suspend it flat against a wall, probability are it’s an older model that has seen better days.

How big is it? If you bought a 32-inch since it was so cheap, but you require binoculars to watch the puck while the Canucks play, perhaps it’s time to upsize. The THX, which sets standards in audio visual entertainment, advises you find the best size by dividing the size of your screen by .84. That means you’d have to be seated just over 3 feet far from that 32-inch TV (the measurement is on the oblique). If your sofa is just over six feet away, THX recommend a 65-inch TV. That’s maybe larger than you estimated and price might play a part in your choice to buy smaller than best possible. The fine news is that TV prices are always going down, so that 4K TV that is outside your plan this year may appear within reach next year.

How smart is your TV? Smart TVs can attach directly to the Internet, even though there are lots of set top boxes, such as Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast and others that will allow you connect to online services such as Netflix. Also if you have TV service such as Shaw or Telus Optik TV, they’ll provide streaming services as part of their menu.

Curved or flat screen? We had Samsung’s 65-inch SUHD curved TV to try out for a couple of weeks, and felt it was a much more immersive experience than a 55-inch model. Viewing was superior at great angles than with our TV, though some reviewers say the difference isn’t sufficient to pay a premium for the curve.
