When viewing content on a smart TV, there’s a feature that allows you to avoid any static background sounds from ruining the experience. That feature is known as Noise Reduction and it’s a very efficient way to view low-resolution videos on a TV that is capable of viewing better and higher quality picture content.
Sometimes though, you’re going to be faced with a smart TV device that refuses to deliver the best sound and image quality. If you’re on this page, you’ve likely figured out that you’re dealing with a limitation from the standard Noise Reduction feature.

To curb this problem, we’ve created this guide that can help you change, remove, and disable the picture feature on your Smart TV.
