More Samsung TVs than ever also come with the Samsung SolarCell remote, an eco-friendly solution that uniquely charges via indoor or outdoor lighting.

Get started with finding your perfect match:

Want a big screen for the big game?
You’re not alone! Last year, 44% of Americans bought a new TV primarily to enjoy the luxury of a larger screen (Circana), with the largest growth in 85-inch+ screens.

James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Home Entertainment & Display Division, Samsung Electronics America adds, “When it comes to choosing the right TV, always choose the highest quality screen that’s right for your lifestyle – and whichever you pick, I suggest considering a larger screen size. Most people are surprised to hear that the recommended viewing distance for a 98-inch 4K TV is just six to 12 feet – making it perfect for medium-to-large living rooms and open layout homes.”

If you’re considering getting a larger screen, but aren’t sure if it will fit your space – check out our handy guide. A quick rule of thumb is to multiply the diagonal length of the TV by 1.2 to determine your ideal viewing distance.  For example, a 98” screen would require 118 inches or 9.8 feet of space between your couch and the TV for optimal viewing.

If that’s what you’re looking for, shop our ultra-large screens – like our Samsung 98” Class Neo QLED 4K (Q80C) and the Samsung 98” Class Neo QLED 8K (QN990C).

Looking for theater-like entertainment with sleek design and smart features?

Check out our family of OLED TVs like the S90C (55”- 83”) and the S95C (55”- 77”) perfect for those seeking the vivid colors and bold contrast that OLED technology delivers.

Looking for the best in brilliant picture quality, sound and smart features?

Look no further than our iconic Samsung Neo QLED 8K TVs – the QN900C (65”- 85”) and QN800C (65”-85”). These trailblazing TVs don’t just boast amazing tech specs, but also deliver a picture that defies limits, thanks to its Infinity Screen with Slim One Connect Box. They also provide a great way to enjoy your favorite daytime games, even in well-lit rooms – you don’t need to worry that the sun’s glare will distract you from the next big play.

Or, if you’d rather go for a high-end 4K TV – we also offer a full line-up of Samsung Neo QLED 4K TVs – the QN95C (55”- 85”), QN90C (43”- 85”) and QN85C (55”- 85”).
