Question TV for an OAP


Standard Member
Hi avforums,

I was helping out one of my mum's friends with some IT stuff and she tasked me with helping her buy a new telly.

She's well into her 70s, isn't remotely techy savvy and is hard of hearing. So I need something that's simple to use, doesn't have a remote like the bridge of the Enterprise and can switch the subtitles off and on easily.

Screen size 32" with a budget of £250-£300.

Does anyone have any suggestions?




Not really sure if there are tv's made with ease of use in my mind anymore, short of ease of use for smart tv features that I presume she won't use.

If you buy a model and the remote is too complicated to use you are better off programming a simple TV remote like a one for all with just the essential buttons, then practically any tv will behave the same.
