With the World Cup now in full swing, make sure you enjoy the very best TV viewing experience from the comfort of your own home.
Here are some useful TV tips and mistakes to be aware of before the next big game.
Don’t use sport mode
That’s right – don’t use sport mode if your TV has one.
It aims to give you the best viewing experience for all the action.
But many experts say it just makes things way too bright and smoothes fast-paced things in a bad way.
Watch on iPlayer for UHD
If you have a 4K UHD TV, you might be missing out on a free upgrade that goes with your device.
Don’t just stick to BBC channels – games are shown in 4K UHD on BBC iPlayer.
This also allows you to get the most out of what your television offers.
Experiment with contrast and brightness
There are a number of settings you can fiddle with on TVs these days.
These include contrast and brightness – you can find them in the TV’s settings menu.
Optimizing what you see really comes down to personal preference, there is no right or wrong.
The contrast takes care of the bright parts of the image, while the brightness adjustment changes the dark areas.
Setting these too high or too low won’t give you the best result, but a slight adjustment might do the trick.
sharpness and colour
Sharpness is a fun thing – it basically works as an edge enhancement, but this can actually take away some of the finer detail. Try this on the lower side of the scale.
Color temperature depends on how warm or cool you want the images to appear. So play around until it looks natural and – most importantly – pleasing to the eye.
There’s also some dynamic black and dynamic contrast options that usually turn on automatically – turn them off and see if it makes things better.
