    I have 36 inch LED TV in my sitting room, so I should be sitting somewhere between 6 to 9 feet away from the TV screen. With bigger display screens, our rooms also need to be long enough to watch them, is it like that? And what about the viewing angle? Kati angle ma hunu parchha eye to tv ko?
    Thanks for the information
