There are multiple reasons to pick up a new TV before the Super Bowl. The obvious one is to have the best viewing experience, but an additional perk is that you can typically lock-in some additional savings before the big game. With loads of options out there, it can be confusing which one is right for you. This guide provides a look at the best models at various price points so you can quickly find the perfect fit for your home.
First things first, you’ll want to have an antenna that you can hook up to your TV so you can watch the game on CBS. When comparing what is out there, it is hard to overlook 1byone’s Antenna. It offers a 50-80 mile range and supports 4K, meaning it not only should be able to receive a clear signal, but also provide you with a crystal-clear image. We recommend utilizing AntennaWeb to get a better idea of what channels are available in your area.
Truth be told, I’m a big fan of TCL’s TVs. I have several in my home. The main reason I like them is simply how cost-effective they can be. This 40-inch model is one of the company’s most-recent releases and clocks in at just under $200. It supports a refresh rate of 120Hz, meaning that this TV is a solid option for keeping your eyes on the ball this Super Bowl. One of the only downsides to bear in mind with this set is a lack of support for 4K. Aside from that, it is a fantastic option for those shopping on a budget.
Big and cost-conscious
If you’re looking for a large TV with 4K that won’t break the bank, don’t miss Sceptre’s 65-inch LED TV. With a $400 price tag, this is perfect for those looking to have a group of friends over to enjoy the game. Out of all the sets listed here, this is the one with the lowest refresh rate. It offers just 60Hz, meaning that when the camera moves quickly, the picture won’t be as smooth. While this feature doesn’t bother everyone, it’s worth considering if you plan to watch a lot of sports on this television.
Middle of the road
Spend a few hundred more to grab TCL’s 65-inch 4K TV to achieve 120Hz playback. It’s priced at $700, making it somewhat costly, but definitely a great investment for consuming loads of sports in 2019. The 65-inch display is surrounded by small bezels, making for an immersive experience that is sure to last you for years to come.
Blow my mind
Planning to host a Super Bowl party this year? Samsung’s 82-inch QLED 4K TV is the best option on this guide, and the $3,300 price tag reflects that. Cost aside, the sheer size of this TV makes it a clear winner for those planning to have loads of people watching the game with them this year. Out of all the TVs listed here, this one is the only model that packs an impressive 240Hz refresh rate, making for a silky smooth playback of all the action.
