How do you measure the size of a TV screen?


To accurately measure the size of a TV screen, measure the width from the TV's lower left corner to its upper right corner. It is the measure of this diagonal line that is used to specify a TV's screen size.

To get an accurate measurement, the tape measure needs to be placed in the correct locations.

Step 1: Place the tape measure at the lower left corner.

Place the tape measure where the visible part of the screen starts.

Step 2: Pull the tape measure to the upper right corner.

Hold the tape measure taut with no slack.

Step 3: Note the number at the upper right corner.

Take the measurement at the furthermost part of the TV's screen.
