Now is a better time than ever to give your home an upgrade. Enjoy being at home with some snacks, the game, and a stellar media room set up. With all the major league sports coming back, it’s time to get on top of the shopping list. Nachos, dip, and pizza bites are already on the list, but the most important element is how you’re watching the game. And since there’s no place like home, you can 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.
Feel the stadium on a big 4K screen
You may not be cheering in the 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. When you’re playing with world champions, it’s go big or go home. A TCL 5-Series 75″ 4K UHD HDR QLED Roku OS Smart TV will play the game on crisp display. With a wide palette of colours as well as more natural shades and hues, you’ll have a cinematic experience to cheer the team on with.
Looking for something a bit bigger? A Samsung 82″ 4K UHD HDR LED Tizen Smart TV comes equipped with PurColor technology 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.
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 Polk Audio True Surround II Wireless 5.1 Channel Home Theatre System. This system delivers incredible surround sound, deep bass, and clear dialogue, so you won’t ever miss a play, even from the kitchen. Plus, it’s bluetooth connectivity easily allows you to pair your devices to catch the home run without missing a beat.
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.

Connect with your friends, and the Facebook Portal camera will makes sure they stay in the picture. Then turn on the game and have your friends appear on the screen too so yours and their reactions are seen in real time.
