Panasonic TX-40C2520

You might like to watch sport on TV, but other members of the household might not. So how about a compromise? A second set that won't take up too much space in a bedroom or other second room. This 40in Panasonic is a great option, delivering a fantastic picture, a wealth of smart functionality and ample connections all for less than £400.

Samsung UE48JU7000

Five stars

Tested at £1250

If a new, main set for the home is high on the list, this Samsung TV is one to consider. It handles 4K content expertly and does a tremendous job of upscaling from full HD too. And as far as flatscreen TVs go, it doesn't sound too bad either - although we'd always recommend investing in a soundbar or surround package.

ALSO CONSIDER: If only the biggest screen will do this Christmas, the 65in Samsung UE65JS8500 is the one to go for.

Now TV

Five stars

Tested at £15 (for the box)

The majority of sporting action takes place on Sky, but if you'd rather not pay out for a monthly contract then Now TV could be something to consider. It allows you to buy Sky Sports day passes, providing unlimited access to all of the Sky Sports channels for 24 hours for £6.99. The box can output in full HD 1080p and support up to 7.1 surround sound too.

Microsoft Xbox One

Four stars

While it could be said the PlayStation 4 is the better gaming console, the Xbox One is a much better entertainment hub. It benefits from regular updates to bring new features - as well as constant price cuts - and also lets you integrate your PVR and use it with Kinect voice control. With Christmas fast approaching, many retailers are offering great deals on various console and game bundles.
