Mounting your TV on the Wall Should Undoubtedly be your Choice. Here’s why!

Getting your TCL smart Android TV fixed to your wall is a new trend that is easy, smart and a better option. A lot of people second guess this because of common questions like “isn’t it too dangerous” or “what if it falls?” but this is easily answered once they observe the way it is installed and how helpful it really is.

Here are a few reasons why mounting your TCL smart Android product on your wall will do well for you.

Reduces the Glare from the Window or the Light 

We all know how annoying it is when we are engrossed in watching a movie and the glare from the window keeps reflecting on your screen. Not only does it keep distracting you, you land up missing the climax! And that’s something nobody wants to go through.

Having your TCL smart Android TV mounted on your wall allows you to tilt and position it in a way where you can escape the reflection. You can adjust the angle according to the change in light throughout your day.

It is also useful when you are cooking in the kitchen but still want to keep an eye on your show simultaneously. All you’ve got to do is just position it in a way where you can see it clearly and voila, you’re good to go!

Compliments the Décor of Your Home 

If you look at a TV in a cabinet or on a table with other random objects near it you notice that it looks too cluttered, messy and doesn’t compliment your house at all.

On the other hand, seeing it against a wall with textures and designs not only enhances the features of the house but makes it look modern, classy and compliments the sleek black finish.

In other words, having your TCL TV mounted on your wall will compliment your wall and make it look less cluttered. Not to mention it may even work out to be the better way to connect the sound system.

Saves More Space

Fixing your TCL smart Android TV on your wall will not only make your house seem less cluttered but will also increase the space in your house. Now that it is on your wall you can get rid of that cabinet/ table which was taking up extra space in your house.

Increases safety

If you have children or pets in your house having your TCL Android smart TV on the wall will be a smart decision. It will be out of their reach and you will not have to worry about someone dropping down the TV. Not to mention how it will save on the damage of repairing your TV or having to buy a new one.

Easy Installation

The installation process can be broken down into 3 easy steps.

-  Attach the brackets to your TCL smart TV
-  Install the wall plate on your wall
-  Hang your TCL Android smart TV

That is really all you have to do! Although to attach these you will need certain tools but if you don’t feel confident enough you can call for a trained specialist to help you install it.

What are the Trademarks of a Smart TV?

Gone are the days when a TV was just compared to being an idiot box, an entertainment medium that only made its viewers engage with it through one-way communication.

Today, TVs like those of the TCL brand are known to be called smart TV's. Majority of home owners are opting for this modern technology entertainment device for several reasons.

You definitely would know somebody within your family or friend circle who owns a CHiQ smart TV or a TCL smart TV. And why not? Why should people abstain from embracing this new technology? To understand why these have become extremely preferred amongst people world-over it is essential to note down the key features that set a smart TV like that of the TCL brand aside from the traditional TV.

Let's start with the four basic and glaring differences in a smart TV:

Modern features

Previously, televisions were known for only one feature, that is, to play out your favorite movies and shows. However, today they have become so much more.

Today you, as a consumer, have control or rather are given control over what you view on this medium. Whether you choose to insert a USB and play out a movie/show of your choice or rather stream it directly from your phone-the possibilities are vast. Apart from that, you even have the option of browsing through the Internet and allowing your screen to double as the monitor.

And that's not all; let's talk about the energy-saving feature on these new and advanced models. Yes, you can actually control the energy your model is consuming in order to save on your electricity bills! All you’ve got to do is merely switch to energy saving mode wherein the TCL smart TV switches to a dimmer light mode and hence, consumes less energy.

Oh and might we add, a screen that is not glaring with brightness is also easy on the eyes, so why not? Another extremely unique feature of CHiQ/TCL smart TV is where you can project the onscreen lighting to have it appear on the wall behind, thus, creating a rather theatrical experience within the comfort of your home.

Several command sources

Technology has evolved so much today that you don't require a remote control to operate your TCL smart TV. Oh yes, use your voice, hand gestures, or maybe even the app on your cell phone to be able to make the necessary adjustments, or switch between channels on your TCL smart TV. You know what this means? When you do feel like being in your couch potato mode, you don't have to actually haul yourself up from the sofa and go hunt for the remote!

The world of smart TV accessories

Today several leading companies are constantly evolving televisions to become smarter and offer a viewing experience that viewers do not expect out of a regular looking television. They are constantly programming it with technology so that it can outdo every limitation previously possessed.

In order to add on the convenience factor and the entertainment factor, today, smart televisions come along with a set of accessories like 3-D glasses, etc. that may be made available free of cost or for which you will have to pay a small sum.

Slimming it down

Oh yeah, initially televisions could easily be recognized as a result of their bulky box-like similarity. However, today innovation and technology have brought down the thickness of a smart television screen to being nearly invisible to the human eye. Not only does this make the unit portable, light in weight, and chic looking, but also enables it to blend in easily with the interiors of your home.

Many home owners who have chosen a more modern, classic, artistic interior theme find smart televisions to be perfectly sized. Apart from that, smart televisions also work superbly well for small spaces or in rooms where you want to save on the floor space and instead have the television wall-mounted.

While this may be the foremost differentiating factors there are a few more features that deserve their moment on the pedestal. If not for anything else, just to make known to several people who might stand to benefit from these additional features or enhancements for support:

a) Time-shifting - What is this magic feature really enables you to do is to be able to play out the role of a Time-Lord as you pause, play, fast forward, stop or even rewind a program/show that you may be watching.

The surprising part is that you can do this all in real time! Yes, now you don't have to worry about missing out on the important details in case you need to get up to answer the doorbell, or a phone call, or tend to some other responsibility. This luxury allows you to extract the most out of your viewing experience and enjoy your show to the fullest. Worried about missing out on the important details in case you need to get up to answer the doorbell, or a phone call, or some responsibility? This luxury allows you to extract the most out of your viewing experience and enjoy your show to the fullest.

b) Record your shows - Have you ever been in a situation where you missed out on your favorite game or much-awaited episode only because something unexpected cropped up? Well, that never has to be the case from now on! With the instant recording feature on a smart television, you can merely click a button and have the entire show recorded for you so that you can view it at a time that is most suitable for you.

Televisions were initially created for simple entertainment purposes however, with the advent of TCL and CHiQ TV is making use of high technology to offer an enhanced onscreen experience, modern viewers can expect a lot more out of this entertainment medium.

If you are planning to ditch your traditional model, for a new one or even planning to upgrade your current model the market is full of options. However, do remember to make the purchase from a reliable source and trusted professionals who will guarantee the authenticity of the brand you purchase and maybe even the warranty or guarantee you are entitled to along with installation and repair services.

If the customer’s home decor is more on the sleek and modern edge the customer tends to opt for a contemporary TV cabinet.

The variety of designs is abundant in TV cabinets; however it is important to carefully consider each design before making a choice. Not only does the buyer need to know if a wall unit or a corner unit is a better option but also knowing where the cabinet will be placed before purchasing it is eaqually important.

Knowing where and how a TV cabinet will be placed in the room is an essential step to complete before purchasing it.

For those home owners that wish to make their TV cabinet a centre piece a wall unit is the best choice to suit their purpose, while those that wish for their TV cabinet to subtly blend in with the rest of their home décor can select a corner piece that does not attract too much of attention.

Open cabinets are the ideal choice for houses that follow a contemporary décor scheme while closed cabinets are the perfect choice for those that own DVD and video game systems which need their many wires to be hidden for a neater look.

Closed cabinets have doors that can be closed when they are not in use and can be kept closed.

The shelving, doors and drawer features of a TV cabinet are directly dependant of the needs of the consumer and must be considered before purchase. For e.g. a consumer that expects storage space from a cabinet must select one that possesses the same features as their requirement.

There is also the option of choosing a readymade cabinet or one that has been already assembled for those that are not too handy with such tasks.

The dimensions of the TV cabinet play a very important role and a TV cabinet must be purchased only after being certain about the size and dimensions of the same to ensure it suits the TV set.

There is a lot for a consumer to consider before making a purchase of a TV cabinet which means that a proper research must be done before making a selection from the wide range of designs available in the market today.
