    Most monitors of that size will be for gaming and a lot more expensive than their equivalent TV's (maybe even double).

    I would just get a decent TV. Technology depending on the conditions of the room it is being placed in. OLED / mOLED if possibe, QLED as a last resort if the TV is going to be battling with sunlight directly at it.

    I would be making sure that the TV supports all the HDR standards such a Dolby Vision and HDR10+ as some (e.g. many Samsung do not support Dolby Vision).

    Also, most cheaper monitors are the wrong aspect ratio for streaming
