An elderly couple watching TV in their lounge room has been robbed by two men during an armed home invasion in Newcastle.

The woman, 78, and man, 79, were watching television when two men, one armed with a knife, came in through the back door of their Merewether Heights home about 9.45pm on Friday, police say.

The robbers allegedly demanded money and took off with cash and a handbag.
