Top 10 TVs to watch Manchester United v Barcelona on…

Manchester United take on Barcelona on Saturday to decide who will be crowned champions of Europe and after their league title, Sir Alex Ferguson’s team will be looking to end their season in style.

The Old Trafford club are set to go into this weekend’s match as underdogs with the Spanish side the bookies’ favourite to lift the trophy on the hallowed Wembley turf.

Sir Alex Ferguson will have his work cut out against Jose Mourinho’s team, and he faces a massive selection headache with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs all vying for a place in the Manchester United starting XI.

This big final match will be the first to be broadcast in Sky 3D and it is also available through Sky+HD and Freeview HD on ITV1, which means if you’re a Man United fan, a Barcelona supporter or just an interested neutral, it could be a great reason to upgrade your television before kick-off.

So if you’re considering switching sides to a new set, here are 10 top TVs you should be making a selection from, picked by Comet’s Paul Davies.

All are worthy of a place in your very own living room line-up and once the 90 minutes is over on Saturday night, they will be ready and waiting for the league season to kick off again in August.

Champions Of Europe

Samsung UE55D6530WKXXU 55″ LED Backlit 3D TV

This has a massive 55inch screen up front, supported by 3D. There’s also 400Hz picture technology perfect for fast-moving scenes as there’s no judder and you get social apps like Facebook built-in to discuss the game with your mates on the screen, while watching it, erm, on the same screen.

Panasonic TX-P50ST31B 50″ 3D TV

If you had all the money in the world, like some football chairmen, then you may well want to invest in one of these. It’s got everything to win plaudits and runs the more established models close with 50 inches, 3D, Freeview HD and Smart apps.

LG 47LW550T 47″ LED Backlit 3D TV

This set can certainly challenge the bigger boys with its 47 inches. There’s a lot of talent lurking beneath the surface and plenty of hidden extras such as SEVEN pairs of 3D glasses in the box and £200 cashback for Sky customers.

League Title Contenders

Sony KDL40NX713U 40″ LED Backlit 3D TV

This is another major contender for your lounge but without the hefty price-tag. This is Comet’s cheapest 40inch 3D LED TV, with Freeview HD, Smart apps like Facebook and 600Hz for fast moving scenes. Like many teams, there’s plenty of flair if you dig deep enough to find it.

Samsung UE40C6540 40″ LED Backlit TV

With Freeview HD, Smart apps like Facebook and BBC iPlayer, a 40inch LED screen and backlighting, this Samsung is like the club it sponsors – always up there among the best.

Panasonic TX-P50C3B 50″ Plasma TV

Another possible winner in our top 10 table, this television is good for sport with 600Hz and there’s Freeview HD to watch the match live in high-def on ITV1 HD.

Mid-Table Stability

LG 47LD450 47″ LCD TV

With a striking 47 inches on its frontline, you get plenty of quality without spending fortunes thanks to a 1080p picture. It is a bit behind the times though boasting only an LCD screen.

Panasonic TX-P42U30B 42″ Plasma TV

Another Plasma stalwart, this has Freeview HD inside for a picture perfect image on a host of free-to-air channels giving a full 1080p high definition resolution. Freeview HD also means
you can watch the Man Utd v Barcelona game live for nothing on ITV1 HD.

LG 42PT353 42″ Plasma TV

Plasma may not always be the most attractive model when compared to newer LCD and LED, but this 42inch telly will do the job every season and so deserves its place in our league. It has a frame rate of 600Hz, perfect for fast-paced action.


A very affordable option that still packs plenty of punch. This 32inch set may not win a title but it will continue to deliver time and again with Freeview HD and an LCD 1080p screen. It’s a small set with plenty of loyal support.
