Newer TVs have built-in AI driven settings that automatically create the best viewing experience. But if you have yet to upgrade to the latest, here are some simple tweaks that get the game and most celebrated commercials to stand out.

TUNE-UP YOUR TV

#1 Open TV Settings

#2 Pick Movie or Cinema Video Mode (not sports)

You will get the best color separation and depth with this setting.

#3 Turn Off Noise Reduction
