Does TV size matter in England like it does in the US?

Just curious. One thing I remember from a trip to England some years ago was that houses and cars were smaller, leading me now to wonder if people in England go for big consumer items like we do here. voodoopenguin?

TV size is dictated by room size. The biggest TV I have in my house is a 55" because that is the largest that will fit given the room dimensions.

Id say TV size was dictated by budget, but meh. 55" smart 4K were $250 last year xmas time.

Largest in our house is 43". We had a 55" outside... but screen got hit with a rock from the gardner. Now rocking an old 1080p 42". Really would like another 55"... but want a deal.

Not telling you what to do, but "We had a 55" outside... but screen got hit with a rock from the gardner" would be kind of a cool quote a the bottom of all of your posts.

I watch a lot of Brit TV and some show take place in villages or shires where soooo many actors duck their head as they go through a door.

But those are old structures.

Besides TVs, what about refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc?

I mean anybody can make room for a 75" screen if they want to.


I think Japan probably takes 'transistorizing' the abode to a much greater, more prevalent degree.

Lots of downsized appliances and small rooms.

The issue is that with flatscreen TVs, there isn't much room for a penguin on the tele.

Think how much room was reclaimed just by the development of the flat screen, though. A room too small for a 21-inch CRT could quite comfortably have a 48-inch flat screen. And it's quite common to see 80cm flatscreens wall-mounted in Asian hotel rooms so tiny that you can touch both side walls while in bed.

Size does seem to matter to some people. There is a big market over here for big screens and some people are happy that they dominate the room. My wife and I as well as our youngest blessing and her family are happy with smaller whereas eldest blessing and her husband go for the biggest screen available and build the room around it. They are avid video games players but also do a lot of tv watching.
