Am in the market for a new TV - it'll be a 55" and I'm looking OLED.  Most of the reviews and specs are based on the quality of the blacks but I watch a heap of Ice Hockey - so fast motion and bright white background.  Does anyone have any experience with a similar use case they could share their experiences?  Main other viewing is via streaming (Roku).




Thanks in advance.

OLEDs don't tend to be affected by motion blur or light bleed as much as LCDs, so fast moving sports should be okay on them. I don't watch ice hockey myself, but I would imagine the broadcaster would mute the brightness of the ice so it doesn't hinder viewing. However LCDs will probably have light bleed across the player/ice lines.
Something to watch though is sports broadcasts, particularly from North America, that have static images (tickers) across the bottom of the screen that remain there continuously, as it may lead to burn-in with extended viewing.
Each manufacturer has their own motion smoothing technology, some people swear by it, others hate it. At least with most brands you can turn it off. have an article on just this topic.
