With televisions getting cheaper and better all the time, it feels like TVs that used to be massive splurges are now the standard. Today, a 65-inch set is just about perfect for a home theater: it’s big enough to feel luxurious, but there’s a wide selection of them at all different price points.

Thanks to Alexa support and a fast processor, you can speak to this television to search, select and control your shows and movies. SAMSUNG

Within the 65-inch category, there’s a wide variety of prices, features and options. At this point, 4K resolution is going to come standard in any new TV this size, so you don’t have to worry about that. But you will be able to choose by features like HDR and local dimming (which give a more vibrant colorscape) and support for voice control platforms like Google and Alexa.

This model comes with an option to add a sound bar, and can automatically switch the picture settings for gaming. TCL

Because 65-inch TVs are often flagships, they’ll generally come with some kind of smart-TV features. There are a few different operating systems from different companies, including WebOS, Android TV and Roku. One convenient thing about having these systems built-in is that you only need one remote control—no need for a separate remote for your streaming box. If you’re not super familiar with these systems, Roku is known for its easy-to-use operation.

This unit includes WebOS, a full-fledged operating system, and a quad-core processor to run without lags or delays. LG

TVs at this size will include pretty much everything you need—except audio. No matter what, you’ll want to upgrade your TV’s audio system with a soundbar or some kind of speaker setup. It’s not the TV’s fault; it just isn’t possible to fit speakers into a TV that are good enough to match with the picture quality.
