What good is having people over to watch the Big Game if you’re all sandwiched awkwardly in front of a tiny TV? Upgrade your viewing experience this year by stacking up your home theater system with some of these popular picks. These units deliver bigger screens, crisper fields of vision, and wider soundscapes for way less than you think.
One of the best times to buy a new TV is the week before the Super Bowl, when manufacturers offer up both new and months-old models at deep discounts. What’s more, brands are now putting soundbars, projectors and speakers on sale as well, so consumers can put together an entire home theater package for a decent price. We’ve found brand new TVs starting at just $119.99.
Whether you’re watching the action on the field or just turning up the halftime show, here are some of the best electronics deals we’ve spotted in the lead up to Super Bowl 2021.
1. TCL 65-Inch Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR Smart Roku TV
TCL’s Super Bowl 2021 TV deal is almost unheard of, delivering a ton of big-screen features in a price usually reserved for much smaller units.
This set gets you a bright and vivid display with 4K Ultra HD resolution, and the convenience of Roku. All your apps are in one, easy-to-view place, and you can also activate Alexa or Google Assistant, to control settings and channels with your voice.
TCL makes some of the most reliable TVs on the market, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised as how crisp the Image quality is on this set, which is great for watching sports, movies and gaming. Images are always life-like and colorful, with little to no blurring, even when the action is fast-paced. At $469, this is the best Super Bowl TV deal we’ve seen this year, so you’ll want to take advantage of this TCL sale before the deal expires.
2. Insignia 50-Inch Smart 4K UHD TV
What sets this TV apart is that it’s a Fire TV, which means you can get to apps like Prime Video, Hulu, and Disney+ in a flash. Insignia’s set comes with an Alexa remote, too, so you can find the videos you’re looking for with your voice.
The TV has over eight million pixels, so you’ll be able to see the big game (and anything else) really clearly. Thanks to a technology called HDR (high dynamic range), you can expect beautiful colors, too.
3. Hisense 70-Inch H65 4K UHD Android Smart TV
A 70-inch(!) 4K TV for just under $600 is an almost-unheard of deal, which is why we recommend adding this Hisense Android Smart LED TV to your cart quickly. With four times the number of pixels as a full HD display, the screen is crisp and clear, delivering more realistic images with less blurring (especially great when watching fast-paced sports or action movies).
Thanks to Google’s Android operating system, you’ll be able to watch all your favorite TV shows and Movies through built-in apps instead of connecting a media streamer. It supports HDR for life-like colors, and comes with a voice remote powered by the Google Assistant. Its speakers can even simulate surround sound thanks to a technology called DTS Virtual: X.
A giant screen, a 4K ultra high-definition display, and smart streaming capabilities, make this an easy buy.
4. LG CX Series OLED 4K TV
If you want the best of the best, the 65-inch version of LG’s CX series OLED TV is a no-brainer.
Currently $500 off, the TV uses a screen technology that makes colors look pristine. It’s a night-and-day difference compared to a traditional flat panel, and you’ll notice immediately. LG partnered with Dolby to build Atmos (surround sound audio) and ThinkIQ (automatic brightness and picture control) into the TV itself.
The result is a TV that optimizes picture quality to give you the best possible experience, regardless of what you’re watching (or playing), and the conditions of your room. This is the best-looking and best-performing TV on this list; the $500 discount takes it down to its lowest price yet.
5. Optoma HD39HDR
Take the action outdoors this year with a portable projector. This one from Optoma delivers a crisp 1080P viewing experience with high brightness and realistic colors thanks to HDR. The projector’s fast response time will prevent it from showing a blurry image during the action.
This HD projector can throw a massive 120-inch screen to give you the true stadium experience at home. You can project your screen onto any surface, but we recommend picking up a screen for the best results.
Plug in a Roku or Fire TV media streamer to watch the big game, and connect the projector to a set of home theater speakers for immersive sound. TV’s are great, but if you want a huge screen, nothing beats a projector. Optoma knocked $200 off this model’s price making this a great deal.
6. VANKYO Leisure 470
Looking for a cheaper projector alternative? Vankyo’s Leisure 470 is our pick. It’s bright, small (just 6.6 inches wide and 2.1 pounds), and can throw a 250-inch screen. This is a 720P HD projector, so the image won’t be quite as clear, but for just $105 (after applying the on-site Amazon coupon) it’ll be hard to beat. This projector has built-in speakers, but we still recommend plugging in a bigger ones for better sound. If you want to watch the big game on a huge screen from a device that can fit in one hand, this is the projector to get.
7. TCL Alto 6+ Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer
TCL is offering a sound bar plus subwoofer combo for just $99. This unit sets up in minutes, with the wireless subwoofer delivering deep bass and the sound bar picking up richer, warmer tones thanks to its Dolby Audio technology. Sound is louder, crisper and more immersive, whether you’re listening to music or watching the big game.
8. Klipsch RSB-3
Klipsch’s RSB-3 is an audiophile sound bar compact enough to fit in any home theater setup, and it’s $150 cheaper than usual. It has an integrated subwoofer for better, richer bass, and support for virtual surround sound for a wider sound stage.
You can connect the sound bar to your TV over HDMI, and it’ll automatically start sending all audio through the the RSB-3 instead of its built-in speakers. You’ll notice a big difference in sound quality, with clearer announcer voices and more realistic crowd sounds when watching sports.
At five inches tall and just under 42 inches wide, the RSB-3 will fit neatly underneath your TV set. You can also wall mount this sound bar if you want to save even more space, or have chosen to wall mount your TV. Having a big screen and relying on its built-in speakers will only give you part of the experience you want watching the Super Bowl, this sound bar can fill in the rest.
9. Sony Z9F
If you have more space, and want even better sound, we recommend stepping up to Sony’s Z9F. The sound bar has an external subwoofer that will deliver even bigger bass, and has a sound mode that’s specifically optimized for sports.
Most importantly, this sound bar is capable of playing high resolution sound, which means what you hear will be cleaner and more accurate. The Z9F supports Dolby Atmos and DTS-X, so it can simulate surround sound, and its three speakers are all pointed in different directions to give you a better sense of space. The Z9F is currently $202 cheaper than normal, which makes right now a great time to pick one up.
