TVs for Sport

Compare the 10 Best TVs for SportOctober 2017

Given the cost and distance involved in going to see live sports, it’s unsurprising that televisions are used extensively to watch all different kinds of sports - from Saturday afternoon football to the Olympics. However some TVs are better than others for watching sports: here we have tried to rank the best televisions for watching sports of all different kinds. When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.

How to Choose a TV That is Good for Watching Sport

Display Diagonal

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

A large screen is great for an immersive experience when watching sport.

Display Resolution

The 'Display Resolution' of a TV is the number of pixels that the TV can display expressed as [number of horizontal pixels] x [number of vertical pixels].

A high display resolution such as 4K lets you see the fine detail in sporting events so you can always see exactly where the ball is.

Motion Interpolation Frequency

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A fast motion interpolation frequency is important for fast moving sports so that motion blur is reduced.

Display Brightness

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A bright screen is important for sport as most sports events are watched during daylight hours.
