Super Bowl TV deals – Techhnews

You can get a 75-inch TV for as little as $1,000! G-o-o-o-o-o, sports!


Sceptre

Super Bowl 53 is just a few short days away, meaning if you’re hoping to score a big screen to watch this controversial game play out, time is running out.

For the past several weeks, stores have offered some great deals in advance of the big game. For example, a 49-inch 1080p Roku TV was going for just $200 (now expired), while a 75-incher can still be had for less than $1,000.

Meanwhile, if you really want to go big, you can score a projector — one capable of projecting a 100-inch image — for under $450. 

So here’s a roundup of the best big-TV (and projector) discounts you can get right now. This may be your last chance to score a sweet TV deal until November!

Best 55-inch TV deals

I’d consider a 55-inch screen the bare minimum for party-friendly football viewing.

Hisense R7 55-inch 4K HDR Roku TV: $330 (save $170)

Hisense

Although this model was $30 less a few days ago, it’s still a solid deal at $330. The only thing I’d question is the tiny number of user reviews. But, hey, don’t like it? Take it back to the store.

Best 65-inch TV deals

This is the TV-deal sweet spot right now, as prices have never been better — and anything larger might actually overwhelm the average living room.

TCL 65-inch 4 Series Roku TV: $500 (save $100)

Sarah Tew/Techhnews

This was $20 less at Costco, but it’s now out of stock. That’s OK, because a TV of this size for this price is still an amazing deal. Although the newer TCL 6 Series is getting all the attention right now, let’s not forget that as recently as a few months ago, the Series 4 ranked among our very favorite budget TVs.

Best 75-inch TV deals

You’re still going to pay a considerable premium for a TV of this size, which is why you might want to consider a projector instead (see below). But, if it’s super-big you want, super-big you’ve got:

Hisense H8E Series 75-inch 4K TV: $1,000 (save $500)

Hisense

This is one of the lowest prices to date on a 75-inch screen. This Hisense model scored a decent 4.1-star average from customers. It has Android-powered smarts for streaming the likes of Netflix and YouTube, but only two HDMI inputs — a potentially limiting factor if you plan to connect more than a cable box and game console.

The projector option

Do you scoff at the idea of a “measly” 75-inch screen? Think you need at least 100 inches to really enjoy your football? In that case, it’s time to look at a projector. Look for one that offers native 1080p resolution (as opposed to “support for 1080p sources,” which is what you typically see on cheapie models) and at least two HDMI inputs. Here’s my pick:

BenQ MH530FHD DLP projector: $440 (save $109)

Benq

Able to project a 100-inch image from around 10 feet away, this projector was designed with home theaters in mind. It has two HDMI inputs, 3,300 ANSI lumens and a three-year warranty. Pretty amazing for the price.

Don’t forget the audio

One more thing: Any new TV is going to need an assist in the sound department. Because seeing the big game is only half the battle, and most TVs have fair-to-poor built-in speakers.

If you want a really cheap solution, find an old pair of computer speakers and plug them in. (You may need a 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter, but that’s easy enough.) Believe it or not, this can offer a big improvement.

More likely, though, you’ll want a sound bar. Here’s our budget pick.

Vizio SB362An-F6 sound bar ($98)

Sarah Tew/Techhnews

If you’re using your TV’s built-in speakers, less than $100 is all you need to spend to make TV sound better than it ever has. Bluetooth and an optical connection, and you’re set to enjoy the football, and a post-game party, too.
