If you recently purchased a new high-end TV, only to turn it on and feel disappointment and confusion about the weird video motion, you’re not alone.
Some call it the ‘BBC effect,’ referring to the similarity between motion on new televisions and the motion effect on older BBC shows that used to bother so many American viewers.
The same motion effect can be found in some theaters, depending on the technology they’re using.
Some people really do like this technology, and there’s nothing wrong with that…but they’re in a minority despite the feature’s existence for the last handful of years.
If you fall into the latter category, you can turn it off for good.
The exact method to turn off your television’s motion-smoothing effect will depend on the unit’s manufacturer, its model, and its year.
