With the plethora of great TV shows now available to stream instantly thanks to services like Netflix, theres an increasing demand for high quality home entertainment electronics. The cost of HD TVs is coming down all the time so a great set up is no longer a privilege that only the wealthy can enjoy.
Components of a great set up
Below are the most essential components required for a great home entertainment set up.
- HD TV The biggest thing that people deliberate about when buying a new TV is the size. Modern TVs are incredibly thin and can nearly always be wall-mounted, which means that you dont need a huge living area to have a large TV. 32 inches is the average size for a TV but many people now actually find this to be too small for their tastes. Its always advisable to view a TV before buying so you can see what the picture quality is like. A 4K TV is also something to consider although most people would agree that there isnt currently enough 4K content available to justify the price.
- Speakers Speakers are a vital part of creating an enviable home entertainment experience. The sound you get straight from your TV will usually not be anything special so its always worth investing in some good quality speakers. If you want to save on money and space, then you might consider a sound bar instead.
- Subscription to a streaming service The two big players in the UK as far as streaming services goes are Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video. Both have a good selection of TV shows and films and are very affordable for most people (Amazon Prime Instant Video is free for Prime customers).
- Good reception Theres no point in having a HD TV if youre not able to get a reliable signal. By far the best choice for getting a good signal is to get an outdoor aerial installed. Indoor aerials just dont provide the same picture quality. Not only that but you need to find somewhere to place them to receive an optimum signal, which isnt always practical.
How to be sure you choose a reputable TV aerial installer
If you dont already have a digital TV aerial installed, then youll need to find somebody to install one for you. Whilst TV aerial installation in a regular property is usually not too big of a job, you still want to be sure you hire someone whos reliable.
One of the best ways to find a reputable TV aerial installer is to hire someone whos comes recommended. This isnt always possible but you should ask friends and family members if they know of anyone. A personal recommendation is ideal because you know its not biased.
If youre not able to find somebody based on personal recommendation then you can look online for a Digital TV aerial installation service in your local area. Someone whos reputable will have testimonials from clients on their website and also be very easy to contact by phone or email.
