A 75-inch TV is ideal for a large living room, recreation room, or for outdoor viewing. A 75-inch TV isn’t a perfect choice for primary bedroom viewing or a living room that’s on the smaller side.
With that said, it’s critical to understand how wide and tall a 75-inch TV actually is if you’re interested in taking one home.
A 75-inch TV is a sizable addition to any room, but a 75-inch TV isn’t actually 75 inches wide. So, what are the actual dimensions of a 75-inch TV? Let’s find out!

How Are TV Dimensions Measured?
The exterior sizes of the TVs listed in the table above are around the same size: approximately 66 inches wide and 38 inches tall. The screen size of any TV is measured from corner to corner of the screen, diagonally.
The image below shows the height, width, and depth measurements for a 75-inch TV.

Display Size: Horizontal Measurement
The display size of a TV doesn’t match the width or height dimensions. The display size is a measurement from the lower left corner of the display screen to the upper right corner of the display screen.
Some TVs, like the LG 7 Class UQ7590 Series 4K, have a bezel that runs around the outside edge of the display. Others, like the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series 4K UHD, have a functional viewing area that goes out to the edge of the display with no bezel. Keep this in mind when you move the TV.
The most popular 75-inch TVs have displays that range in size from 74.5 inches to 75 inches. The half-inch variance between TV display sizes isn’t significant enough to notice. Still, there is a size variance of approximately 1.2 inches in width and 3.2 inches in height when looking at the display, plus the exterior display case.
The measurement depth for different TVs can be confusing if you don’t pay close attention to what each number represents. Depth measurements fall into two categories.
The thickness of the thinnest portion of the TV is considered the wall depth. The TV manufacturing companies may want to muddy the waters a bit to make it difficult to discern the actual depth of the TV. A very thin 75-inch TV, like the SAMSUNG Class QLED 4K Q70C Series Quantum HDR, Dual LED, is 1 inch thick. The TCL Class S4 4K LED is 3.6 inches thick.
The thickness of the TV may seem unimportant until you factor in the wall mount. A popular, inexpensive wall mount sits 2.4 inches off the wall. A wall mount for a much heavier TV sits approximately four inches from the wall. If you have a “thicker” TV combined with a “thicker” wall mount, you may have a TV sitting approximately seven inches away from the wall. Only you can determine if this is acceptable.
A larger 75-inch TV will most likely be used in a large room high on a wall. We highly recommend a tilting wall mount that can also handle larger TVs. When you’re ready to upgrade to a 100″ TV in a few years, you’ll have a TV mount that can hold a TV larger than 75 inches.

75-inch TVs are delivered with stands. The stand holds the TV up when you place it atop an entertainment center.
We highly recommend mounting the TV on the wall when viewing TVs of this size. Most 75-inch TVs weigh approximately 75 lbs but can reach around 125 lbs. That’s a lot of weight you can easily tip onto the floor and perhaps your foot.
The stand depth is the depth, measured in inches, of the stand. Most 75-inch TV stands are between 12 and 16 inches in depth. You should check the width of your entertainment center. Entertainment center widths vary depending on what size TV you want to place on the top. We recommend subtracting the width of the TV stand from the width of the entertainment center and dividing it by two to give yourself an idea of how your entertainment center can handle a 75″ TV.
For example, a 15.75″ entertainment center width minus the TV stand width of 15.1″ equals 0.65 inches. The TV stand needs to be centered between the front and rear and the entertainment center, so divide 0.65 inches by 2. You’ll have 0.3 inches of “wiggle room” between the stand legs and the edge of the entertainment center.
What Size TV Do I Need?
A 75-inch TV is a substantial piece of expensive electronics to hang on the wall. Unlike smaller TVs, like a 55-inch TV, a 75-inch TV will require at least two folks to mount it on the wall or stand it up on top of an entertainment center. Yes, you could channel your inner Hulk and heft it up, but the odds of you breaking the TV increases with larger TVs.
We recommend taking stock of your room size when determining what size TV to purchase. You want at least ten feet between you and the TV, so you need a large room. If you place a 75-inch TV in a space that’s too small, you will end up with eyestrain and an unpleasant viewing experience.
We’d recommend placing a tack on the exact center of the wall where you plan to place the TV. Cut a 15′ or 20′ length of string and run the line from the wall tack to your viewing location, like a couch or chair. Hold the string by your eyes and then measure the length from the wall to your holding position. It’s easiest to take the line off the wall and lay it flat and straight on the ground.

There are many manufacturing companies to choose from when selecting a 75-inch television. Unlike 70-inch, 75-inch TVs are very popular with consumers. Look for great sales online and in-store to help reduce costs and save a few bucks.
A 75-inch TV is too large for most bedrooms and living rooms, as it requires too large of space requirements. A brand-new 75-inch TV is a great addition to large living rooms, protected outdoor spaces, and entertainment rooms.
If you plan to install a 75-inch TV on a wall, you want an extra set of hands and two ladders. After installing the stand, you’ll also want an extra set of hands to sit the TV upright. Too much pressure on one portion of the TV’s edge may cause the display to crack.
