Much like our phones, which were once reserved for making calls to actual human beings, TVs have become smarter and smarter over the years and now come packed with incredible features to improve our lives.
Whether you're always searching for new ways to make your home connected, or are a more traditional viewer looking to get the most out of your new TV, we've got all the best tips and tricks for the ultimate home entertainment experience.
Brought to you by the Samsung QLED TV range - bringing amazing experiences to your daily life with exceptional design and innovative technologies.
Don't miss out - here are all the things you can do with Samsung’s new QLED TVs... that aren't watching TV!
Make A Statement
While this may not be your first priority when upgrading your TV, it’s important to consider the design aspects and how it fits into your space.
Given the TV is often the centrepiece of your living room and spends a big chunk of time switched off, the last thing you want is a black rectangle hanging on your wall.
Samsung’s QLED range encompasses exceptional design on the outside that matches the tech capabilities on the inside, and that’s where Ambient Mode comes in.
Your TV effortlessly blends into the wall, showing a display in-keeping with your home's decor, photos or useful information such as weather - your choice. You don’t need to compromise on elegance with QLED.
Next Level Gaming
Not all TVs are created equal when it comes to gaming. No matter how high-spec your console is, the quality of your TV can often make or break the experience.
The cutting edge gaming technology on Samsung’s new QLED range means lag is practically a thing of the past. In VRR mode with a compatible console or PC, the frame rate automatically matches the game you’re playing.
Microsoft even recommends the QLED range for the optimum Xbox performance.
Do Your Laundry
Gone are the days of having to leave the sofa to check if your washing is done!
SmartThings will keep you truly connected to all the devices in your home, making everything from entertainment to household chores easier than ever.
Connect your TV to selected devices and you’ll get a notification when a load of washing has finished.
You can also mirror the TV onto your smart fridge’s screen or effortlessly push content from your smartphone - the possibilities are endless.
Cut The Clutter
Wires - one ugly, inescapable feature of TVs through the ages.
Keeping to the minimalist design, One Clear Connection has been introduced on some of the latest QLED models - a first in the TV industry.
It’s one almost-invisible cord that transmits power and data, thanks to Samsung’s continual innovation (and possibly some magic).
That means the TV can be placed anywhere without the need to drill walls or display unsightly cables, with all your devices connecting to the discreet One Connect Box.
Additionally, Samsung’s One Remote Control totally streamlines the traditional remote, stripping out all those random buttons that no-one has ever used in the history of remote controls.
What you get instead is a chic, sleek controller that you can use for all your devices. Easy.
Improve Your Lifestyle
The intelligence of the QLED range means it will learn to compliment your lifestyle.
Samsung’s smart assistant is on standby to respond to voice requests. Apps built into the QLED series allow you to stream music, plan and track a workout, or find your favourite recipes.
Spotify, Netflix, Stan and YouTube are just some of the most popular apps included to ensure you stay connected not just with your home but a whole world of entertainment, social and lifestyle options.
That is all in addition to the stunning display that makes more traditional viewing of shows and movies an unparalleled experience. With an optimal viewing distance of 2.3m you can go big - up to 75 inches - no matter the size of your home.
Quantum Dot technology provides amazingly vibrant colours no matter how bright the image is on screen, as well as protection from screen burn. In fact, Samsung provides a 10-year Screen Burn guarantee on the QLED TV range.
Meanwhile, HDR10+ and Direct Full Array give pristine brightness and deep black contrast levels so you always see every scene exactly as the director intended.
