The biggest day of the year for football fans is also one of the biggest days for consumer spending. And it’s a peak time for home-based social gatherings.
In early 2017, a National Retail Federation study showed that 18 percent of people surveyed—or 45 million—planned to host a party for the game. In addition, more than 27 percent planned to attend one. And another 5 percent planned to watch the big game at a bar or restaurant. That means a little more than half of Americans had some sort of social plan!
It’s because of these parties, according to the same research, that spending on the occasion has rested well above $10 million for the last few years.
But the game is about more than just picking the right snacks and adorning the house with team-related decorations. It’s also about having the best possible home theater setup for full enjoyment of game day.

Leading manufacturers like Samsung are raising the technological standard with options like the 49” M5300 Series 1080p Smart Wi-Fi TV. Boasting the latest in eye-popping resolution and Internet compatibility, TVs like this are a smart choice for sporting events and more.
For more budget-minded customers, the 32” Smart 720p LED TV from Hitachi retails for less than $250 and features a built-in tuner for digital broadcasts.
Further innovation can be seen in the technology used to receive over-the-air entertainment. Gone are the days of comically awkward rabbit ears, replaced by sleek SKUs like the Leaf 50 HDTV Antenna from Mohu, with an emphasis on precise filtering of unwanted signals. Or consider the budget-friendly Rail HDTV Antenna from Axis. It’s another great examples on the slim design and extensive reception range found in the modern HDTV antenna.
The slim design of modern television sets makes wall mounting the best option for viewing. Easy to install and available in a wide range of sizes, products like the SmartMount Universal 46”–90” Flat Panel Wall Mount from PeerlessAV provides a solid source of support.
From the roar of the crowd to the essential play-by-play commentary, the sounds of the big game mean as much as the sights. The iLive Bluetooth 5.1 Home Theater System, for example, fills the room with clear audio, ensuring an unparalleled entertainment experience.
