Get your living room ready for the Rugby


With just one day to go before the first match kick off of England vs Fiji at Twickenham, it’s not too late to give a little thought into how you’re going to watch this momentous 8th Rugby World Cup held on home ground. While the option of watching games down the pub with a pint is pretty appealing, ITV will be broadcasting all 48 matches of the Rugby World Cup on ITV and ITV 4 which makes home viewing with your mates on the sofa very feasible option. So is your TV ready for a full capacity audience or does it fall short of the try line?

To make sure that your TV is ready for the big matches, have a good look at what is available Samsung TVs are a great choice and official partners of England rugby too. Think very carefully about the size you want in a new set, perhaps a smaller 40-49 inch TV is best for your living room, or you could upsize to a TV over 70 inches if you’ve got the space. Take into consideration colour technology, often overlooked but it will add depth and dynamic to the game, making the playing field brighter and more vivid than ever. Curved is a TV trend here to stay, although some households may still prefer a traditional flat screen curved is a great for giving you that completely immersed feeling – especially in those critical, nail-biting last few minutes of a game. Screen resolution may sound a bit foreign to some people, but it’s a measurement of the picture quality on screen. 4K Ultra HD is the best resolution on the high street for current TVs, it’s four times more refined and detailed than standard HD sets and will make the rugby scrums on screen look pretty epic.

Once you’ve got your TV ready for the rugby, have a think about sound quality. Soundbars and home cinema systems are brilliant for bringing crystal clear audio with rich tones and deep bass – ideal for replicating the roaring crowd in your very own living room and even after the world cup has finished, they’ll still be bringing unbelievable cinematic sound to your favourite films.

So with your front row seat sorted, all we need now is for England to #carrythemhome,  and if you need any more new TV advice, contact us at Gerald Giles today!
