What better opportunity to bring together good friends, your favourite snacks and maybe even lay down some bets than during a big game? I’m not necessarily encouraging gambling, but there’s nothing wrong with a little game of chance. Cozying up with your favourite group of people, putting on the game and enjoying it together in the comfort of your own home is undefeated.
Nachos, dip, and pizza bites are already on the shopping list, but the most important element of the night is how you’re watching the game. Since there’s no place like home, make it the perfect venue. Impress yourself and your guests with a 4K TV and accessories from BestBuy.ca that will set the mood for the big game. Just beware—you may become the default host from now on.
Feel the stadium on a big 4K screen
You may not have the chance to hit up every stadium, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be right smack in the middle of your team’s action. A great TV is as close as it gets to teleportation, and you don’t have to risk being spliced to enjoy it. Watch the game in real time on a screen that basically places you in front row seats, because if you’re playing with world champions, it’s go big or go home. A Sony 65″ 4K UHD HDR LED Android Smart TV will play the game on crisp TRILUMINOS display, which gives you a wider palette of colours as well as more natural shades and hues.
Bigger? A Samsung 70″ 4K UHD HDR LED Tizen Smart TV comes equipped with Pur Color and Mega Contrast technologies to deliver life-like video quality with exceptional colour and clarity. This model has a stunning LED backlight that gives the game an extra boost while remaining energy-efficient. Plus, it’s preloaded with Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Video apps for more content options in between matches. Just don’t burn the nachos and there won’t be any tension.
Bigger still? TCL 4-Series 75″ 4K UHD HDR Roku OS Smart TV brings you 5 more inches of non-stop action on a brilliant screen, and at an amazing price that doesn’t break a budget.
Hear the action loud & clear with stellar sound
If you’re watching it well, you need to be hearing it just as well. You made it this far, don’t choke now- get together a proper sound system that will amplify every whistle, snap, and hit. If you’re looking for something to create an immersive theatre experience, a Denon AVRS750H 7.2 Channel 4K Ultra HD Network AV Receiver. This receiver comes with 7.2 channels that deliver quality surround-sound with surround speaker configuration that amplifies left, right, and centre. Plus, Bluetooth, AirPlay 2, and HEOS Wi-Fi connectivity allow you to connect to other devices and stream from your favourite apps like Spotify, Pandora and more.
If you’re looking for something a bit more simple, a sound bar is the way to go. Any real fan deserves to hear the base of the arena in their living room, and a Sony Dolby Atmos Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer will give you just that in sleek and discreet style.
This is an excellent high resolution audio system that comes with a wireless subwoofer. It’s extremely elegant in design, but it’s what’s on the inside that sounds. This system comes with 400W of total system power, and distributes up to 300W of power to the sound bar and 100W of power to the subwoofer. The game will feel like it’s right in your living room.

You don’t have to rush the field to get a touchdown
