Can't beat a new TV day!
Nope. Taking my time with this one. Make sure I do it right. Will start after lunch.. Any "must do's" to take into account during initial setup???

Afternoon. Im thinking about getting one of these TVs in Black Friday sales. Whats the state of play with the catch-up apps?

Ive got a Chromecast with Google TV and it has iPlayer, ITV Hub and My5 and I am wondering if this TV is the same?

Im only really concerned with iPlayer tbh although I can obviously just cast if needs be.

In general, is it the same availability of apps as the Chromecast?

Hi guys. I've just moved into my new home and looking for a 65" TV and currently torn between the C1 and A80J. I popped into Currys and they have a A84J which is the same price as the A80J (Β£2,199) but meant to be better due to it's brighter screen?

The TV will mainly be used for movies/netflix and playing PS5.

Is it worth waiting til Black Friday and hoping they drop in price?

Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Yeah, don't drop it :D

Seriously tho, setting this up was a doddle, I was really impressed how easy the feet went in - and it's toolless.

Right ok thanks.

So, C1 or A84?!

I would only be able to get the A84 if it drops to around Β£1800..
I've never used C1, so this is subjective at best, but if you'd not use the extra gaming features of the C1 I think you'd be more than happy with the Sony.

Most reviewers state the Sony has the better PQ.

I've got an Xbox Series S and the 4k 120Hz works fine, just need VRR now. Eventually. Maybe.

That's a pretty good deal! I think their codes have expired now so will have to wait for the next one.

What's the best way to keep up to date of any price drops/discount codes?

Hi Guys,
At 11 foot viewing distange 65 or 77?

Viewing 80% Sky Q hd (Rugby, news, movies and tv programmes)
20% Netflix and Amazon
So very little 4k

My concern is the drop in picture quality on the bigger screen. I saw a 77 inch today in currys and it looked bad on sky hd (i'm sure the settings were all over the place but still).

Any thoughts? I crawled through the thread and didn't see much on this- saw a lot on glossy screens!
