If you still enjoy the charm of cable TV, then why not opt ​​for a modern TV set that's perfect for set-top box viewing? Even with so many streaming options available, one just cannot take away the appeal of classic cable television. For some users, a set-top box that offers all their daily soaps and popular movies would certainly rank as a higher priority than a TV that offers OTT platforms. Here are some of the best TVs that are ideal for set-top box viewing and can be used to stream OTT content too.

Onida 80 cm (32-inches) HD Ready Smart IPS LED TV - Fire TV Edition

If you're looking for a TV with a built-in Fire TV, this 32-inch TV is just that. It offers access to most of the popular OTT platforms in the market like Netflix, Hotstar, Zee 5, Amazon Prime, Sony LIV, and more, so that you or your parents never have to compromise on content. However, perhaps more importantly, this TV also comes with 3 HDMI ports that let you connect your set-top box, DVD players and even speaker sets. Speaking of sound, this TV has a 16W output, DTS TruSurround, and even Dolby Digital Plus, which should make the audio experience quite good.


Mi TV has a 50-inch screen with a 4K resolution, which means you can expect crisp images while watching your favourite movies or TV shows. The device has three HDMI ports so that you can connect not only your set-top box but also other devices like a gaming console, Blu-Ray player, speakers and more. It also has two USB ports so that you can watch saved content on the big screen via external storage devices. The Mi TV has a 20W sound output that is enhanced by Dolby+ DTS HD, which should ensure that dialogues aren’t muffled by background sounds. This smart TV runs on Android 9 and has built-in OTT platforms such as Disney+ Hotstar, Netflix, Prime Video and more. It also has Google Assistant to help you control it with just your voice.

LG 80 cm (32-Inches) HD Ready LED Smart TV 32LJ573D

Don't want to choose between OTT streaming and set-top box viewing? This 32-inch LG TV offers the best of both worlds, with its WebOS and built-in Wi-Fi, offering access to all the platforms you want. The two HDMI ports on board are sufficient enough to connect a set-top box and a DVD player with ease. This TV has an HD Ready (1366x768p) resolution with a 50Hz refresh rate, which should offer a decent viewing experience. The color master engine and wide-viewing angles offered by the TV should also enhance the viewing experience a great deal. The 20W sound output should function well too. However, if you're a fan of surround sound, you can always use one of the HDMI ports to connect an additional speaker set to enhance the same.
