60-Inch TV Dimensions
Measuring using a Measuring tape, the dimensions of a 60-inch TV with a 16:9 Aspect ratio comes to 52.3 inches wide and 29.4 inches in height.
From TV to TV it varies about a few inches due to the presence of bezels on their sides and a stand on the bottom.
The measurement considered here does not include the bezel or the TV stand. You need to consider them if you place the TV in a cabinet.
How Wide is a 60-inch TV?
A 60-inch TV is 52.3 inches wide considering the TV has a 16:9 aspect ratio.

A 60-inch TV is generally considered a big size TV for watching movies.
A 60-inch TV screen is very wide considering the width of 52.3 inches. If you include a few inches for Bezel it comes across 54 inches. So, it is a big size TV.
How Far Should you sit from a 60-inch TV?
To watch a 60-inch TV, the optimal distance is to sit between 6 ft to 8.2 ft from the TV. The Field of View would be between 30 degrees and 40 degrees.
This Field of View is said to be optimal for viewing TVs. Field View is important to negate the factor of visual fatigue while watching TV for a longer duration.
If you view 60-inch TV at a distance lesser than 6 ft, you may not feel natural as the Field of view will get to >40 degrees.
You can size it further than 9 feet but that is absolutely fine as per your convenience.

If you see the distance is about 6-8.2 ft, the 60-inch TV is suitable.
Knowing the Bezel Thickness
If your TV has a thicker bezel it may appear to be bigger. However, to get an immersive viewing experience going with the as much lesser bezel as possible is recommended.
Modern TVs come with a very thin bezel and they don’t take up any additional space than the TV’s screen size.
In case you are mounting the TV on a Cabinet, you need to take some space for the bezel and then calculate the size.
How is TV Size Measured?
TV Size is measured in terms of its diagonal measurement from one corner to another corner.
The TV’s size remains the same across different brands considering they provide the TV at a 16:9 aspect ratio.
It can only vary a little considering the additional size of the Bezel that covers the outside part of your TV screen.
