We own several rather newish televisions.
I am an old guy and not overly tech savvy when it comes to these things.

So my question is can I watch our TV’s with a blue tooth headset?

The wife needs 7-8 hours of sleep per night and I only need 4-5.

It would be cool if I could just uses ear buds so she can sleep better.

I’m sure this can be done but I am not sure how to see if this can be done on our TV’s.

Can I just turn on my headset and wait for a pairing prompt or do I need to do a couple of extra clicks ?

Thank you.

Bluetooth is a standard protocol. So as long as your TV supports bluetooth and you have a bluetooth headset, you should be good to go.

Can google your TV/device and see how the paring works. Often a headset will be in "paring" mode for a few section when you turn it on. Others have a setting to put it in paring mode (hold down the power button for 3 seconds, etc.). Your TV may have a bluetooth menu that will allow you to select the right device. All in all, it's pretty straight forward.

The only caveat I've seen is that some devices can only attach to 1 host. So for example, if you have your headset is already paired to your phone, you may need to disconnect it before it will allow your TV to pair/connect with it.

Very few TV's have bluetooth. This is still not a standard. I don't suppose any of your TV's are Roku TV's? Or have a Roku stick on them?
If so, there's a way to do this with the phone remote app.

You can purchase a bluetooth transmitter that you can plug into the audio output of your t.v., and purchase a bluetooth headset. Easy, and pretty cheap, depending on the quality you want.

Here is some transmitters: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=bluetooth...ref=nb_sb_noss
