What can I make or do to reduce the glare on the TV screen?

I hate to close the curtains just to watch TV. But the glare is bad on days with sun. Any ideas?

    try some window film or solar screens from your home store

    Marlene's idea is a good solution! You can't beat the sun! Most TV's have a reflective screen, even the matte screens have this problem. Moving your TV to another location is an option if you can do so. If your TV is wall mounted, get a swivel mount so you can tilt the TV away from direct sunlight.

    3M Film on your windows will reduce the glare on the TV while protecting your furniture from fading. Your ability to see outside clearly is great, however it makes it difficult for someone trying to look in which is a good thing.

    Can you place something on the side of the TV to block the sun from bouncing off it? I found just moving my TV at a slight angle helped a lot.

    Maybe get and awning for that window outside. Or do as other suggested move TV. Change angel of TV to point more downward not flat or straight out.

    What about a mini blind or vertical blind that can be dropped down or pulled across and slightly angled for an hour or so until the sun moves and them re-open.
