How to tweak your TV settings for sport

When it comes to watching the big game, you want the best experience possible. You get your friends round, order a takeaway, argue over who has the comfiest seat in the house. You also try and get the best picture quality possible, but did you know there is an actual Sport setting in some TVs? We’ll show you how to make your TV the league leaders.

Make your sport a spectacle

When it comes to picture quality, the sharper and clearer the better. You want to see every detail, like the net rippling at Wimbledon or the cheering fans after a last-minute winner at Wembley. Changing your picture settings might be different for some TVs but most follow the same kind of process.

What to do

Press the Menu button on your remote and look for the Picture Mode setting. Once you’ve selected this, you’ll be able to scroll through different options that will change the picture on your TV. Manufacturers have done all the hard work for you and created a set of options. The Sports setting usually makes colours look more realistic, and helps get rid of the blur you sometimes get with fast-paced action. So, it’s like you’re actually at the game. Most TVs have different picture settings available, like for Games and Movies so try them out and see what you prefer. Then, sit back and enjoy the match.
