How to Best Watch TV In a Well-Lit Room

Q. Our best TV is in our living room because that’s where we watch the most television. But I have to admit that it’s hard to watch it sometimes because of the glare from the windows during the day and our lights at nights. Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve this? A different TV, for instance? We have a Samsung LED. — Frank, Detroit, Michigan.

Frank, generally speaking, both a LED and LCD TV are designed to offer a good picture in a well-lit room so I don’t think your choice in a set is a problem.

However, there are some things you can do to improve your viewing experience both during the day and at night when you have your lights on.

For starters, if possible, position the TV so it doesn’t face a window. This will help eliminate any glare coming in from the sunlight. There’s nothing worse than trying to watch a big game or an absorbing movie with a giant splotch of sun glare on the screen.

Another idea: invest in some blackout curtains that can keep the daylight at a minimum when you’re watching TV.

During the night, again, if possible, place your lamps behind the TV or off to the side so the glare does not directly reflect on the screen.

The problem of TV glare often occurs because you are sitting in a chair next to a lamp. If you can position the set so it’s facing a seating area without a lamp, or with the lamp off, you will notice a marked improvement in the picture.

Hope that helps, Frank. Happy viewing!
