TV buying guide, Gameday Edition: Best Smart TVs for Sports

With the biggest sporting event of the year coming up soon, pro football fans are gearing up for game day with a vengeance. Thus, it should come as no surprise that TV sales skyrocket leading up to the big game. And while the sales are big, the competition to get the best Super Bowl TV deal on is fierce.

In the spirit of good sportsmanship, Puls has come up with a sports TV buying guide, complete with all the best Super Bowl TV deals and sales, so you can get the best television for watching sports – and everything else – all year round.

 

Screen type: OLED vs. LED

When buying a smart TV to watch sports, the type of technology involved is of utmost importance. While LED is by far the most popular style of television, due to the good quality and price point, OLED TVs are more competitive than ever, and are the best choice for hardcore sports fans.

Not only are there great deals on OLED TVs right now, but the technology itself has evolved. Not only are the blacks darker and more clear, but the brights are brighter, too. OLED TVs are most sports fans’ top pick because of the razor-sharp picture and high speed, which means that you’ll catch every run and see every pass without lag or trails. 

Here are our top Super Bowl TV deals and sales on OLED TVs:

 

LG OLED B7A

With smart connectivity that gives you access to your favorite apps and content using webOS 3.5. and built in 802.11ac WiFi, the B7A is a top choice for its blinding speed and extreme clarity. The best of what OLED televisions have to offer, this is one of the best game day deals around.

If you don’t mind spending the extra bucks, Sony’s A1E has a slight edge over the LG B7A in terms of speed and clarity. This is still a great deal on a TV, but you could get away with the B7A and be sitting pretty come game time.

 

Does size matter?

In a word, yes. It’s a simple equation – more screen equals better view of the field. See more detail in overhead shots, and when the camera pans in, you’ll feel like you’re in on the huddle. We recommend a screen size of at least 55 inches if your space can accommodate it. But you don’t have to pay enormous prices for all that corresponding screen real estate. Here is one of our best deals on large screen TVs.

This LED from Samsung boasts huge size at a very reasonable price – certainly one much lower than what you would expect for a 4K, ultra-HD display of this magnitude. Crystal clear and faster than Le’Veon Bell, you’ll be glad you chose to go big (rather than “go home”). And with all of the smart technology you need for maximum connectivity along with a Quad Core processor, the MU6100 shows that it can play well with others in your smart home.

 

Join the curve craze?

Curved TVs are all the rage these days – and it’s not hard to see why. Perhaps it’s because they make it seem like we’ve got an IMAX theater in our living room. But aside from the obvious “cool factor,” curved ultra-HD TVs are super-immersive, making you feel like you’re on the field. Between the wider field of vision and the added depth, which gives more of a 3D feel, lots of folks swear by the curve. It can also come in handy if you have a crowd watching the game, as it makes for a better viewing experience for people who are sitting off-center. Our favorite deal on curved 4K TVs is:
