Televisions have come a long way from the boxy tube-type models of the distant past, and are now thin (incredibly so, in some instances) flat-panels that easily lend themselves to mounting on your wall like a picture.
Screen sizes for televisions have also evolved to the point where 85-inch TVs are now common and larger sizes such as 88 and 98 inches are available. This development has blurred the distinction somewhat between televisions and projectors, which are used to achieve greater than 100-inch screen sizes in a home theater setting.
Televisions also provide built-in Wi-Fi and smart TV interfaces that can be used for browsing apps and streaming movies and shows. Gaming has also become a primary use for televisions, with recent models providing support for the 4K 120Hz output of next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X gaming consoles, a feature that provides more realistic graphics and smoother action during gameplay.
