Did you know: when buying a new TV for the Super Bowl, some pricey features might not even be necessary?
A lot of stores are pushing “4K” TVs this year. These TVs have four times the resolution as the current 1080p models. Now that might sound impressive, but with the increase in resolution also comes an increase in price. But hey, maybe you don’t mind spending some extra bucks – as long as you can see the game in super-duper hi-res, right?
Not so fast.
This year’s Super Bowl won’t even be broadcast in 4K. So while you might be able to watch a few programs in higher resolution, the big game won’t be one of them. And since 4K TVs are still relatively new on the tech scene, there currently isn’t that much other content that makes use of it – for now.
So what do you look for?
A potentially more important feature is the ports. If you plan on hooking up other devices to your TV, make sure your set has at least 3 to 4 HDMI ports. This way, you don’t get stuck with a TV that you just can’t connect with.
So tackle these tips before you buy, and you can get a new TV for the Super Bowl, without your budget getting sacked.
