Large screens like the best 75 inch TVs may have seemed like a lavish expense just a few years ago. Still, they are becoming more popular with ordinary people because of their reducing price tag and ability to give your a cinematic experience in the comfort of your own home.

This has only gotten more potent in the past couple of years as we've found ourselves investing more in streaming platforms such as Disney+ and Netflix, which give us newly released flicks alongside endless viewing options, making the larger 75 inch TV look more and more tempting.

These larger screens are the best at recreating the theatre experience without being too hard on the wallet (at least until 85-inch TVs get a bit cheaper), giving you more immersion in what's going on - whether that's cheering on your team or bingeing the latest box set.

But we know that something so pricey will require careful consideration before you commit, not just because of the huge presence a 75 inch TV will have in your living room but also because of how befuddling the number of terms and acronyms in the TV world has become. OLED, QLED, HDR, 8K - and the rest!

To cut some of the stress from your research, we've assembled a list of what we believe to be the best 75 inch TVs currently available, as well as some additional buying advice further down the page. And we're always on the lookout for new releases, so watch this space.

Of course, if you're not quite sure that a 75-inch model is quite right for you, then you can take a look at our guide to the best TVs of any size (and budget).

We love OLED TVs here at Real Homes, which is is why the LG 77-inch CX TV gets our vote for one of the best 75 inch TVs you can currently buy. Of course, it's so much more than just a television, but it will look amazing from any angle.

The model offers a unique minimalist aesthetic, made possible by OLED's revolutionary panel technology and ultra-thin form factor. In addition, the TV mounts flush to the wall, much like a piece of art, meaning it's the ultimate choice for interior design fanatics.

A 75 inch OLED TV screen will showcase perfect blacks, intense colour, and infinite contrast, which really are in a league of their own when compared to old LED screens. Boosting by HDR, you'll get an even deeper, darker, bolder background for incredible contrast.

Boasting Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa voice control built-in, you'll be in a position to easily switch between channels, plus get personal updates tailored to yourself and your family. There's also Filmmaker Mode and Auto Genre Selection, which will mean movie marathons are forever changed.

-Ambilight technology won't be for everyone

If you've ever come across a Philips Ambilight TV before, then you'll know that the unique selling point of these sets is the reactive three-sided lighting that matches its colour to whatever you're watching on screen. It's a nifty feature and one that will suit those who like to watch movies in the dark and have the most immersive experience possible.

The Philips 70 inch PUS8555 TV has a lot to offer besides its Ambilight tech. Dolby Vision and Atmos deliver clear sound and visuals, 4K resolution, and a P5 engine for superior depth in the image HDR for better colours and contrast.

You'll also get built-in Google Assistant smarts, which means you can control your TV with just your voice (it also works with Alexa if you have an existing speaker). 

And, if you want to boost your sound even more, DTS Play-Fi offers multi-room audio, and the adjustable stand height is ideal for fitting whatever soundbar you like underneath with no problems.

How to choose the best 75 inch TV for your home

What are the typical dimensions of a 75 inch TV?

The televisions on this list range from 158-189cm, which is quite a difference when picking out the perfect 70-77 inch TV for your space. The longest is the 77-inch LG GX, which you will need to wall mount, and the most narrow is the 70-inch Philips Ambilight PUS8555. 

But there can also be slight differences between sets of the 'same' size. For example, the 77-inch LG GX (189.4cm) is significantly larger than the 77-inch LG CX (172.3cm).

The variation is even greater when it comes to weight, with our choices varying between a svelte 27.6kg and a hefty 35kg.

The main point to make a note of is that - despite suggestions otherwise - you can't guess when choosing the best 75-inch TV for your living room. So always read the specifications between committing.

Is a 75 inch TV too big?

This is a question you may be asking yourself, and for a good reason. While even larger televisions are available for the everyday consumer, a 75 inch TV will still make its presence known in the average home. 

Still, there is a range of sizes available within this range, with 70-inch sets and 77-inch sets all coming under the same banner. Manufacturers know that not everyone can fit the same sized televisions in their living room as they can in their bedroom or want the same sized screen for watching movies as they do for gaming, so they tend to release a wider selection as a result.

Where should I mount a 75 inch TV on the wall?

This depends largely on the set-up of your viewing room, including how far away from the TV you expect to be sitting. Expert advice indicates that your TV should be mounted at eye level when sitting to not cause neck strain, but it may be true that you tend to watch TV laying down or frequently host parties where the eye levels of guests will vary. 

Use your judgement on what will be the best height for the majority of the time. You can read our guide to how to mount a TV for maximum preparation before you get the screwdriver out.

In short, make sure that you're not trying to mount your new, expensive TV with an ill-fitting bracket, measuring the dimensions and weight of your screen before looking for the perfect mount. Most will list the optimal TV size and maximum weight - pay attention to these, and you shouldn't go too far wrong.

Are 75 inch TVs worth it?

Providing you've done your research and chosen the best 75 inch TV for your needs and circumstances, you're unlikely to regret your decision. They are currently the best option for those who want to enjoy big-screen delights without paying an arm and a leg for new 8K or 85-inch sets. Even though they're still pricey, you can get good deals without sacrificing on features.

Of course, it's not your only option for upping your screen size, with the best projectors going a few steps further with screens up to 100" or more - often with comparable image quality.
