    I need a new television 6th Jun 17 at 7:48 PM
    My 32" Sony Bravia LCD television is on the way out. It has developed white lines across the screen. It looks like an A4 lined writing pad underneath or within the picture.

    Anyway, I'd appreciate your views on the following:

    It's on most days and has lasted 9 years, is that pretty good?

    I think I'd like another Sony but what has a better picture quality?

    I'm not interested in 3D or a curved screen but what other new tech options are worth investigating?

    LG are pretty good these days , another vote for local richer sounds as they offer totally impartial advice and know what they are talking about

    And free 6 year warranty as mentioned

If you don't want all the bells and whistles then you can get a good brand such as Sony, Samsung etc fairly cheap these days and it would last for years.

    I bought 2 Sony Bravias for the llounge and upstairs. I thought buying Sony was a ggod call, but after 18 months or so, BBC iplayer and YouTube became 2 of the apps that were no longer compatible.
    I may as well buy cheap next time if TV's are going to lose there functiuon so quickly, or buy a better picture quality, not so Smaret TV, with a Smart Box

    Hi Crag, have you tried Googling:

    'sony bravia update apps'

    There are hits detailing how to download and apply updates
    It could be that your updates do not occur automatically.

    Depending on make and/or model some smart sets are not so smart.

    Regards - Mike
