Determine the best size widescreen (16:9) television before you hit the stores. Measure the distance in inches between the location of the screen and the closest seat. Divide the distance by 1.5. For example, if the closest seat is 63 inches, consider a 42-inch screen; at 75 inches, a 50-inch screen is good. Any bigger and you could notice a loss in picture quality.
