    Looking for the orange one
    Any recommendations please blues?

    I want a ‘smart’ tv with most of, if not all the trimmings.

    If I get one, do I also need a Firestick?

    If not a Firestick, what are my other options?

    Oh and it has to be one I can watch the new City channel on.

    Ta :)

    Richersounds as above.
    LG or Panasonic.
    You will need a Firestick.
    Not all catch up channels are available on all smart TVs.
    The City app is on firestick its £1.99 a month to subscribe

    Depends if his smart tv has all catch up services. If not he will need one.
    Amazon will be available on his tv for the City tv app.

    Bargain. Not smart tv, no hd, works a treat if you bang the top and sides a few times.

    Neither here nor there!
    For myself i look more to "dumb" tv's with better spec. A firestick instantly makes it smart and gives you more freedom regarding apps. Most tv smart features are setup just so and can't be altered much if at all. That said you can't avoid the manufacturers own stuff now as all come with smart features. I just don't use them and stick to my firestick.

    If you want super smooth footy you want a high Hz refresh rate, how big is the room it will be in, how far away will you be sat?

    LG has native apps for netflix, amazon and now TV, oh and iplayer, can also install 3rd party apps but I guess that depends on what he wants to do
