As features in TVs are changing every year, let’s take a closer look at what the future TVs will look like. The way we consume content is changing rapidly. And this is leading to a massive change in the devices which we use to consume this content.
The TVs we grew up watching as kids bear little resemblance to the ones we use today. And this brings us to the pertinent question – what will the TVs of the future look like?
They will be extremely thin
While OLED TVs (or organic light-emitting diode TVs) such as the LG Smart TV come with ridiculously thin screens, they will be preferred to the other TVs in the market. The LG model can be wall-mounted using magnets, making the consumer’s life easier while also enhancing the aesthetics. For consumers willing to shell out money, the TV will be akin to wallpaper due to its thin screen.
OLED screen TVs can get cheaper
Taking into account the fact that consumers will be drawn towards TVs with OLED screens, there is a chance that OLED TV manufacturers might actually lower the price of these models. While LG has been the only brand that has been consistently producing OLED screen TVs, more players might start getting into this space, which would result in more competition, and thus, lower costs.
Speakers in TVs might disappear
Brands such as Samsung and LG have already managed to manufacture TVs which didn’t have an external speaker. In this case, the speaker is mounted behind the TV screen. It reportedly helps, resulting in better viewing experience, as the bass won’t affect the picture quality. It also allows for better sound quality from the TV.
Curved TVs will disappear
While curved TVs are already on the decline, they are expected to completely phase out and exit the television market in the near future. Curved TVs are currently cheaper than flat TVs, but consumer interest in them has completely gone down. A few manufacturers are hoping that there will be renewed interest, and continue to produce these models. However, this interest may not last for a long time.
A wide variety of TV channels
The average consumer is reaching a point where no one single TV channel dishes out the content they may be looking for. OTT platforms have changed the game, as there is a wide range of content for anyone to explore. Recommendation engines/systems are further changing this space as well and overtime, there will be millions of channels for consumers to choose from.
Ads may become non-existent
With the short attention span of today’s audience, content creators and platforms will have to find a smarter way of plugging ads into TV shows and movies. While YouTube is making its premium users pay for an ad-free experience, platforms such as Netflix are still avoiding the ad game. This might prove to be a nail in the coffin for traditional ads. The traditional way of advertising may finally phase out, as content creators and platforms start becoming smarter about how they can plug their sponsors.
Casting will become the new norm
Casting is not as popular a phenomenon with TV users yet, but it will catch up with them soon enough. While the consumers are realizing that they can control the content choices, they will soon start to look for better ways to do the same. Soon, we may replace laptops with TVs, as users start casting content from their smartphones onto the TV screen.

Remote controls may become obsolete
As smart TVs become more and more common, remote controls may become redundant, and voice commands may take the front seat. As users realize that voice commands work better and faster, they may not see the need to have a remote control at all.
