Whether it’s game day or movie night, you don’t want an outdated TV or subpar sound to ruin the experience. Creating an at-home theater doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg – and with Samsung, you’ll be the host of the best watch parties in town!

What Size is Right for Your Family?

Televisions come in many sizes, shapes, and specifications these days… how do you choose? The first factor you’ll want to take into account is size. If you live in a small studio apartment, a 70-inch TV will take up half of your apartment. Samsung offers some great advice for choosing an appropriately sized TV, but the basics come down to where the TV will be, how many people will be watching, and what you’ll be watching.

For a living room where multiple people are watching, 40 inches is likely as small as you’ll want to go. A bedroom TV could be much smaller, from 32 inches down to 20. Keep in mind, if you’re a true movie-lover, you’re going to care about the resolution. Epic movies should be shown on epic screens! The higher the resolution, the closer you’ll come to seeing the movie as it’s meant to be seen. Samsung’s 4K UHD TVs offer crisp, clear picture that’s 4X the resolution of Full HD, with shades of color that reveal more detail than HDTV can deliver. 

What Does a Soundbar Do?

You’ve got the perfect picture, but what about sound? TVs always come with their own built-in set of speakers, but these are usually low-powered and lacking deep bass, causing you to miss out on the depth and range that immersive films and shows have. Enter: the soundbar and subwoofer. This equipment takes your sound from tiny to titanic! A soundbar is an all-in-one speaker system that delivers high-quality TV sound without requiring the space, complexity, and expense of a full home theater set-up. Paired with a subwoofer that provides low bass perfect for thundering storms or battle scenes, you get a well-rounded sound system that will transport you from your living room to faraway lands or epic outer space battlefields. 

Bring All of Your Tech Together

While you can certainly have one without the other, a TV and soundbar/subwoofer system really work best when paired together. Shop around, but you can run up the price tag if you buy from multiple retailers or brands. Bundled sound and video options are your best bet for sound and picture that work together with the press of a button — Samsung soundbars are optimized to work seamlessly with Samsung TVs. Enjoy Plug-and-Play connectivity via wired or wireless connections, control both TV and soundbar with the Samsung One Remote and fine-tune your sound right from the TV menu. If gaming is more your thing, connecting your favorite console to your new TV (and bundling them) makes every day your game day.

TVs, gaming consoles, and sound equipment can be some of the most expensive items you own. Buying quality products that will last you years will ultimately cost less in the long run as you won’t need a replacement every time the picture dims or the sound gets crackly. Even better, by bundling items like soundbars, gaming systems, even furniture, you can get a deal straight from the movies.
