Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website. However, if you are an American with a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at 617-472-1710 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for any American with a disability. Finally, your personal shopper will explain our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service, and help you place an order if you so desire.


There are three main types of display technologies that are in mainstream HDTV's, LED/LCD, OLED and Plasma. A new standard in screen resolution was recently introduced called Ultra HD, also known as 4K TV. 4K TVs have four times the resolution of full HD, and will quickly replace HDTVs over the next few years.

The Hancock TV and Appliance staff has an average of over 20 years of experience and can explain (in simple terms) and show you the differences between HDTV capabilities, display technologies and brands like Sony, Samsung and Sansui. We look forward to helping you, and as always, we appreciate your business.

Buying Tips

  • The term "Smart TV" refers to TVs with integrated web applications built in. Typical applications can include NetFlix, Facebook, a Web Browser, streaming video capabilities and more.
  • With flat screen TVs getting thinner and thinner, their ability to project sound has been reduced, which has created the need for sound bars. Sound bars such as Yamaha and Denon are simple to use and inexpensive, and are vastly superior to your TV's built-in speakers. Systems with built-in Bluetooth will allow you to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or tablet.
