COMFORTABLE, DISTORTION-FREE VIEWING EXPERIENCE
With a curved TV, the entire screen from the center to the edges of the screen is equidistant from your eyes. By bringing the screen edges closer, curved TVs are perceived to offer a wider viewing experience (due to a wider field of view) than the equivalent flat TV counterparts.
As the entire screen being equidistant from your viewpoint, it provides you with a uniform viewing experience.
Even if you’re not seated directly in front of the TV, the viewing experience is still better than if it was a flat screen TV. For example, if one were to sit at the left corner of the room, on a flat TV, the center to the right portion of the screen would certainly appear distorted. With a curved screen, viewing the same area would be less stressful as the screen is slightly curved towards your seated area. but wouldn’t the left side of the TV appear distorted since the screen is curved inwards? Unlike a flat TV, a curved TV is designed with a particular optimal distance, where distortion is kept to a minimum.
As seen in this illustration, the curved edges of the screen give rise to a perceived increase in the field of view as opposed to the flat TV.
