For many TV owners, it may be surprising to learn that the size of your TV is not related to any of the dimensions that will affect where it fits in your home. It might be frustrating to find out that not all 75-inch TVs are the same regarding height, width, and depth.
The average measurements of a 75-inch TV are 66 inches wide, 38 inches high, and 2.4 inches deep without a stand. Adding a stand can increase the depth up to 16 inches and several inches to the width if it’s positioned to the sides of the screen.
If you’re interested in learning more about the dimensions of a 75-inch TV, you should continue reading. We will also cover the various popular brands, comparing their dimensions with and without stands. Additionally, we will cover the size of the room you need and mounting guidelines.
What Measurements Matter When Choosing A 75-Inch TV?
You’ve reviewed all the available TV sizes and decided on a 75-inch for your newest addition. Now you need to find the model that will perfectly fit within the space you have chosen.
You’ll need to consider the TV’s height, width, and depth. What you will find is that none of these numbers are 75 inches. That number corresponds to the corner-to-corner measurement of the screen.
Additionally, if you plan to use the stand instead of mounting the TV, you’ll also have to account for those measurements. The stand can add height and width depending on its placement on the TV.
You can watch this video for more information on how to properly measure a TV to know if it will fit in the space you have:
Generally speaking, the average measurements of a 75-inch TV without a stand are between 65 and 70 inches wide, between 35 and 40 inches tall, and between 3 and 5 inches deep.
These measurements will give you a general guideline of how much space you will need for your new TV. Remember that adding a stand will change some of these measurements.
So why does a stand have such a drastic effect on the measurements?
Foot Support for Your TV
Just like different models of 75-inch TVs have different dimensions, they also have different mounting hardware. Depending on the style of this hardware, you could experience significant increases in the depth or width of your TV.
You may get anything from one platform to four feet to support your TV. You may have difficulty accounting for these dimensions without knowing the exact mounting hardware you will be getting.
If you plan on using the provided feet instead of wall-mounting the TV, estimate at least 10 inches of total depth added on between the front and back and at least one-half inch around the outer casement.
Let’s explore several of the most popular brands and their dimensions, both with and without a stand.

As you can see, there is also no uniformity to dimensions within a specific brand. If you are considering one brand over another, you’ll need to pay close attention to the dimensions for each model, as some of them vary by an inch or more.
You might be wondering what kind of vehicle you need to transport a TV with these dimensions. We’ll cover that next.
Transporting Your 75-Inch TV
Despite the size of an SUV, it’s not the ideal vehicle to transport a 75-inch TV. According to manufacturer specifications, your TV should be kept upright when transported to avoid damage to the screen from the bumps in the road. An SUV is not suitable for this type of transport.
The best vehicle to move a 75-inch TV is a minivan. The interior height is perfect for keeping the TV upright, and the seats can be moved or removed to allow for the optimal space needed.
Once you get your TV home, you’ll need to ensure you’ve picked the ideal room for it. Several factors will determine which room is the best choice.
What Size Room Is Necessary To Accommodate a 75-Inch TV?
When choosing a room for your 75-inch TV, accommodating its dimensions should not be your only focus. You don’t want to choose a room where the TV will dominate everything. The room should be spacious enough that there is plenty of mobility around the TV.
Additionally, the quality of the picture will be affected by how close you have to sit to the TV. If your room is not big enough to accommodate sitting far enough back, you could even take part of the TV out of your range of vision. You’ll want the perfect distance between your seating arrangements and the screen for the best view possible.
The standard formula for placing your TV is to allot three feet for every 12 inches of the TV’s measurement. For a 75-inch TV, this would be 75 divided by 12 multiplied by 3, meaning you need a room that allows for 18.75 feet of space from the TV to your chair.
Wall mounting is an option that can help make the space you have available to accommodate your 75-inch TV better.
Ideal Wall Mounting Guidelines for a 75-Inch TV
Several important guidelines come to mind regarding mounting a 75-inch TV. Due to the sheer size of the TV, it can be a daunting task. Following these guidelines and ensuring you get help with the process will provide you with the best experience mounting your TV.
Choose the Perfect Mounting Height
When you mount your 75-inch TV, you want to ensure you place it at the correct viewing height so everyone can enjoy it. You can calculate the perfect height with the following formula:
Mounting Height = Viewing Angle x Distance + Eye-Level Height
In most cases, the bigger the TV, the higher you want to mount it. This thought process ensures the most comfortable viewing angle for everyone.
Ensure the Area You Have Chosen Is Wide Enough
You also need to ensure the area you choose is wide enough to accommodate your 75-inch TV’s width. Knowing the measurements of the space you are working with before purchasing is essential.
If you have a fireplace and are considering mounting the TV over it, consider the dimensions of the TV against the dimensions of the fireplace. If the TV is wider than the mantle and fireplace, it can present an awkward appearance that throws off the entire room.
Avoid Mounting Your TV By Windows
To avoid interfering with your viewing abilities, ensure you do not mount your TV where any windows will shine on the screen. The glare can completely disrupt your afternoon relaxation. Additionally, you don’t want to block any windows with your TV, which can happen if mounting isn’t planned carefully.
Ensure Your Wall Is Strong Enough
One significant consideration is the wall you are choosing for mounting. You need to ensure that it is strong enough to support the weight of the 75-inch TV. Weights, like dimensions, vary by brand and can range from 75 to over 100 pounds.
For an idea of how to properly mount your 75-inch TV, watch this video:
One thing to remember is that you need a wall with a stud in it, or it will not be capable of supporting the weight of your TV. The mount must be fixed to this stud for the proper hold. Otherwise, the screws holding the mount will simply pull out of the wall, damaging your TV.
Don’t Take This Task on by Yourself
Due to the size of the TV, you’ll need some assistance or need to hire an installer for the project. One person cannot support the TV’s weight and perform the steps necessary to mount it.
The Bottom Line
A 75-inch TV can be an excellent investment, provided you have the space for it. With an average size of 66 x 38 x 2.4 inches without a stand, it’s no small feat to accommodate a TV this large. You’ll need to research the brand and model you want to buy before purchasing to ensure it will fit in the space you have available.
Mounting the TV can take some of the pressure off the space, but it’s by no means a one-person job. You’ll also have to consider where you place the TV to avoid blocking any windows or bearing the brunt of the sun’s glare on the screen.
When shopping for a TV, it’s important to remember there is no standard size other than the diagonal measurement that gives the TV its size class. Even within a specific brand are variations in dimensions that can affect whether a TV will fit in the space you have available.
