Best TV for Bright Rooms [2020] & Daylight Viewing

Any regular TV will do for normal rooms, but if your viewing space has ambient light (natural light) present then you would need a bright room TV.

Or else you will experience a washed out picture quality and some dark scenes will become almost impossible to watch.

Now the question arises, “What is the best TV for Bright Room?”

An anti-glare TV is best suited for bright rooms, specifically QLED TVs by Samsung as they feature triple layer screen technology that outcasts reflections & glare.


But before considering buying a TV that works well under the lights you should overcome your bad room setup by controlling :

(a) ambient light source
(b) recessed lights already present in your room.

You can also go a step ahead and install blackout curtains.


After the aforementioned steps are taken care of, we shall discuss a prevalent argument when it comes to TVs in the brightest environments.

Whether QLED TVs or OLED TVs are good for daytime use?

Well according to our research & testing we concluded the following:

  • QLED TVs are much brighter, deliver powerful HDR performance & enable wide viewing angles as well. 
  • On the other hand, OLED TVs are better suited for SDR content & front viewing angles.

So without further ado, let’s get into the detailed reviews of TVs for sunny rooms.
