Just as the technology for televisions has changed, the rules for watching one have shifted also. The rule with standard-definition televisions used to be that viewers should sit at a distance of 3-6 times the screen size from the TV. Now, with the glorious innovation of HDTVs you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixilation on the screen—slighting the original rule and allowing viewers to sit only 1.5-3 times the screen size away from their HD display. When it comes to choosing the right size TV there are a couple factors one must look at and a couple things to consider before heading to the store.
First, always measure—don’t “guestimate”—just measure. If you haven’t measured your possible TV viewing area and you are currently headed to the store, it better be to buy a tape measure. Measure the room or rooms you will be putting you new (or old) TV in and make sure there is adequate space for placement and viewing.
