What is the TV Sizer?

The TV Sizer is a new tool that allows you to size up your home for the purchase of a new television.  

Why can’t I just use a tape measure?

We tried ourselves but could not visualise the true size of a TV screen when holding out a tape measure in one direction at a time.  

How do I buy the TV Sizer?

The TV Sizer can be purchased on PayPal for $2.49.

Please follow the PayPal links to buy your TV Sizer today.  

I’ve purchased the TV Sizer – how do I download it?

Please see the How to Assemble page for download instructions. If you are unable to download the TV Sizer via email or the FetchApp link, please let us know using the Contact Us form below.

Why do I have to print and tape together the TV Sizer myself?

We asked ourselves the same question! But it really does make a lot of sense. 

When buying the TV Sizer in its digital format, you can access it immediately – there is no need for you to travel to the shop or wait for its delivery. 

There are also no manufacturing, storage and shipping costs to account for, allowing us to sell the TV Sizer at a low price

Once you’ve downloaded the TV Sizer, it’s yours to keep and use forever; simply print, use and recycle – and repeat when you need the TV Sizer again.  

The TV I might buy has different dimensions to the TV Sizer – can I still use it?

Yes of course.

The TV Sizer includes the screen size dimensions along the bottom of each border.  If these dimensions differ slightly to those of the TV you might buy, you should bear the difference in mind.

The TV Sizer gives a good indication of dimensions for each screen size, but will not be a perfect fit for all TVs since TVs do not all have exactly the same dimensions.  

Each screen size on the TV Sizer also lists the brand and model of the TV it is based on, for your information.

The TV Sizer includes Optimal Viewing Distance for each screen size – what is this?

This is the distance that provides you with the optimal visual experience.

You should consider this distance when choosing a screen size.

On the Useful Info page, I’ve included several links to websites that discuss optimal viewing distance in detail.

How big is the TV Sizer?

The largest screen size (70 inch) on the TV Sizer is 159cm wide and 92cm tall.

The TV Sizer itself is 167cm wide and 101cm tall once assembled.

Can I cut the TV Sizer down to a certain screen size?

Yes please do. 

Once assembled, simply cut out along the required border to reduce the TV Sizer to the size you require.

This is a particularly useful approach if you have a maximum screen size in mind and so only want to choose from the smaller sizes.

How can I get a refund?

Please use the Contact Us form below to request a refund.  Please include your order number and PayPal registered email address.

We can issue a refund if you have not downloaded a copy of the TV Sizer.

Unfortunately, we cannot issue a refund if you have downloaded a copy already.

Why list your Favourite TV Shows?

We’ve enjoyed watching all those great shows and so decided to share our recommendations.

We’ve included links to trailers and two reliable information sources, Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB. We have also included links to the shows on Amazon.

What if I have further questions?
