There are two times in the year that I think about buying a TV.  Through experience I know that while Black Friday offers the best prices on bargain panels, Super Bowl has the best value on a great TV.  Sports fans have long been the driving force behind TV purchasing and 2019 is going to be a great year to get a new TV.  Analysts know that most of us are at a cycle point when enough newer technology has surpassed what we found in the sets a couple or few years ago.

Turns out I just bought a TV for my mom last week.  And I used the exact advice for her as I am about to share with you.

#1 Bigger is Better

Larger 4K TVs have never been this affordable.  One of the reasons is the manufacturing process at the factory level that has made it less expensive to create larger displays.  55 inch is the new entry level.  And if you are like another friend who is ready for an upgrade, she moved up to an 85 inch TV.  Football viewing by nature is a fast-moving visual experience with numerous wide-angle shots cutting between close-ups of players and replay action. The bigger the TV, the better to see that action.

#2 High Dynamic Range

Look for HDR or higher. Samsung has Elite HDR which looks spectacular. This is the reason you get far better contract performance. The blacks are blacker. The colors are more realistic and deeper.

#3 Higher Refresh Rate

Start at 120MHz and go up from there. The higher the number, the better your TV will handle with action sports and fast movement like gameplay. Make sure you don’t see a any blur when watching sports, that is a sign that the refresh rate is too low.

Here are three amazing deals that I found from Samsung that I would buy immediately. One of them I did for my mom, and she is thrilled.
