Mounting Televisions Safely

Many people are getting tired of having a big entertainment stand taking up space in their living room holding the TV. This could take up space and give your living room a condensed look and feel. If you are looking to add space to your room and get rid of the entertainment stand, think of mounting your television to the wall. Many new flat screen TVs have a bracket that you can purchase that will allow you to attach them to the wall. Be careful because improper installation can send your new TV crashing to the floor. Here are some tips that will help you mount your television to the wall safely and allow you to have more space in your living room.

Before you decide to purchase the mounting brackets, look at the back of your LCD flat screen TV to make sure you can connect it to the wall via that method.

There are wall mounts that can even handle the old style sets that will let them be mounted on the wall. Careful observation will determine which style you need to attach your model to the wall in your home.

After you have the right brackets, find a wall that you wish to hang your device from, that will give the best viewing angle. Choose … Continue Reading ...

Catch-Up TV Services:
Catch-Up TV services allow you to watch TV programs after their broadcast on air, without actually recording or downloading the program. Over the years Catch-Up quality has evolved and currently, 60% of the programs broadcasted on the free national channels are available for replay.
