Sadly need to replace my Panny plasma and need a TV around the £1000 mark that has decent viewing angles. It will be used primarily for Netflix/Amazon Video/Sky HD, with a spot of gaming thrown in.

The way the living room is laid out means at times I'll be sat around 30 degrees off axis (is that the right way to describe it?) it could be less, maybe 20, but call it 30 to be safe. Thanks for any input.

For a Plasma replacement you need to look at OLED's for the equivalent picture quality.

LG OLED55B7V (TVs)

£1299 on eBay for the LG B7, a 2017 model, or wait until Black Friday for the LG B8.

Didn't think older models were that easily bought at this time of year :) and not fussed about it being latest tech as it is just a movie machine really. Thanks for that!

They are nearly sold out everywhere so be quick if it's a set for you.

20-30 degrees either side of the centre of the TV really isn't that much and you will probably be okay with even an LCD TV with a VA panel at those angles.

Are you sure its only that angle? I made an image here to roughly demonstrate them: 65" 4K HDR TV under £1500
