What the difference between HD ready and full HD? Not much other than resolution. HD ready displays at 720i on most channels and can display up to 1080i when tuned into a special HD broadcast. Of course, you won’t be able to tell much of a difference on a smaller TV or if you’re sitting too far away from the screen. To the naked eye, the difference is very slight, almost imperceptible. You might need to squint or compare side-by-side to get the full effect. If you do your research, an HD ready television can be a great value for money while giving you the high definition, crisp clarity you’re after. Our HD ready television buying guide is a great place to start on learning all you need to know about the must-haves and what to avoid.
