Television has come a long way since it first started out. If you talk to your parents or grandparents, you can enjoy a good chuckle as they describe what it was like to use the old dial TVs, with the rabbit ear antenna, that you had to push and pull endlessly to tune in a picture. It sounds absolutely ridiculous, but back then, it was the only way to enjoy movies and TV shows in the household.Fortunately, it’s not like that anymore.
Today, TVs not only have the ability to play what’s on a cable network or satellite, they don’t need either for you to enjoy great programming. Modern TVs allow you the ability to stream your favorite movies and TV shows, and support stunning picture quality with 4K resolution. In addition, modern TVs feature a host of different plugins, so that you can enjoy any number of different devices, such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick, which you can use to access a wealth of great content.
That being said,there are many different models, types, and brands of TVs on the market right now, and it can be tough to choose the right one. You might be a TV fanatic,who demands the best in audio in picture quality while you consume every movie,TV show, and video game that comes out; or you may just be a casual viewer who doesn’t need top of the line, so long as you can watch Sunday Football.
Whatever your preference, to help you make the best purchase, I’ve put together a list of three of the best TVs available right now, no matter your price range or preference.
