Very TV Buying Guide

17 Dec 2020

Not all TVs are created equal. Buying a new TV is not just about picking the one with the biggest screen. With so many features to choose from, we take a look at the technology you need to watch out for, so you can get the best TV at the best price in our Very TV buying guide.

Top tips for buying a TV at Very

There are a few things to take into account when shopping for a TV at Very. While we give more details below, here are some of the most important things to be aware of:

  • When picking the screen size, consider the size of the space and how far away you’ll sit.
  • Look into your screen’s resolution. For the best quality picture, plan on at least a 4K resolution.
  • QLED display technology offers exceptional picture quality, and many QLED models are often on sale at Very.
  • Look into Very TV deals that save money on soundbars, so you can get the best sound quality too.
  • Do you need voice control, a smart TV, or other features? Factor in all the must-haves you need from a TV.

TV discount codes

If you’re looking for the latest offers on a discount TV, you can find Very deals at all times of the year. You can also find deep savings for TV add-ons, like soundbars, when you buy them at the same time.

Use our up to date Very TV discount codes and apply them at checkout. Even if you’ve forgotten to apply a promotion code, get in touch with Very as soon as possible and they can look to amend your order rather than having to cancel.

Student and NHS discounts

There are no specific TV student discount codes or NHS discounts at Very.  But there are still loads of fantastic Very TV discount codes available which will give you a saving.

Picking your screen size and technology

With so many different options, it can become a bit baffling to know what size will work in your room, what kind of technology you need, and what a TV can do beyond letting you watch your favourite shows. You can narrow down the options by considering how you’ll use the TV.

How many inches?

You’ve likely already worked out where you want your TV to go, so grab a measuring tape and check what size you need (TVs are measured diagonally from corner to corner). Once you know the measurement, think about how far you’ll be sitting from the screen. As a rule, the distance should be 1.5 times the size of the display.

LED, OLED or QLED

When it comes to screen technology, there are a few options to weigh up:

  • LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes, which backlight the screen for bright and clear picture quality. Although not as premium as OLED and QLED, the viewing experience is high-quality, and LEDs use less power for energy-efficiency.
  • OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) controls each of the pixels in the screen individually giving you more accurate colour and detail. The TVs are slim and lightweight as they don’t need backlighting.
  • QLED means Quantum-dot Light Emitting Diode and can give you some of the most realistic and accurate images on a TV. The technology allows a higher brightness without compromising on colour, and there’s less glare on the screen.

Screen resolution: 8K, 4K, or UHD?

The resolution of the TV will make a difference to the quality of what you’re watching, as well as how much money you spend.

4K

At 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, you’re getting 4x the quality of full HD. A 4K TV will work for most people and you can sit quite close without worrying about pixelation. Look out for models that offer high dynamic range (HDR10/UHD Premium) as you’ll have more colours, contrast levels and brightness.

8K

With 7,680 × 4,320 pixels, an 8K resolution offers amazing picture quality, particularly if you combine a small space with a large TV screen. Not many films are ready for 8K yet, so buying an 8K TV is all about future-proofing for when the tech catches up.

What is a smart TV?

With a smart TV, as well as being able to watch everything you usually do, you can instantly access online content through the TV’s built-in WiFi.

With a Very smart TV, you can stream shows and movies on services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+. You can also catch up on your favourite episodes using BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and more, plus play games or post to Facebook.

Very TV brands

You’ve got a lot of choices when buying a TV from Very. There are hundreds of models to pick from, all with different features and offers.

Find high-quality smart TVs from:

  • Hisense
  • LG
  • Luxor
  • Panasonic
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • Toshiba

Take a look at current promotions that can include a reduced soundbar or money off when you buy a wall mount at the same time as a TV.

TV to suit you

Everyone watches TV differently, so depending on what you’re going to use it for, you’ll want to look at different brands and features:

Movies & sport. When you want to see the detail and not miss a moment, look for an LG OLED TV, which will give you self-lighting pixels. Add a soundbar to get a full cinematic experience.
Gaming. Gamers want a picture and sound that keeps up with fast movement, so look for a Samsung 4k Ultra HD TV. As you’ll likely be closer to the TV when playing, look to get a TV screen around 55”.
Families. For entertaining nights in, look into an LG Ultra HD 4K smart TV. With access to all the streaming services, there will be something for everyone to watch, all in great quality.
