How do you measure a flat screen TV?

Answer

How you measure a flat screen television depends on the measurements you are looking for. If you want the screen measurement, the designation with which televisions are identified, you measure the screen diagonally from one corner of the screen to the other. If you want the actual physical dimensions of the television, you should measure the width, from the outside of the television frame, from side to side. You should also measure the height in the same manner.
