Best Projectors For Watching Movies And Sport At Home

by : Matt Weston on : 01 Jun 2020 17:53

With cinemas and bars closed across the globe currently, most people are left to watch movies and Bundesliga football from the comfort of their own homes. Luckily, projectors can help bring all the action to life on your walls!


There are many reasons to get a projector over a brand-new television. The main one is that a projector doesn’t take up any floor or wall space. If you’re anxious about a child or pet knocking a TV off a stand or wall, the portability of a projector will be much appreciated.

Another reason for making the switch is due to getting more screen for your money’s worth. Getting a projector can be a pretty daunting experience if you’ve never got one before, so the important thing to consider is the number of lumens. A lumen is a measure of the total quantity of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time. The higher of lumens, the brighter the picture will be.

We have identified three projectors which are great options for watching live sport and the latest movie releases.
