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.
