Throw an Amazing Football Party with an Ultra HDTV, Yeti Gear and Smart Appliances

Now that this year’s “big game” is set, it’s time to get your home ready for the party.

Whether you are hosting a big tailgate party in your backyard or planning to watch the game with a few family members or friends, you should address your TV viewing options well before kickoff. After you have your TV viewing plan all set, you can start planning your menu and guest list.

Advanced TV & Surround Sound Options

Smart Neighbor has some great smart TVs available, many of which are either HDTV or Ultra HDTV, with all delivering amazing clarity and an impressive picture.

Top of the line models are Sony’s 55-inch & 65-inch 4K UHD with Android TVs. Both size TVs go beyond regular HDTV. UHD (ultra-high definition) TVs completely transform the picture to show intense detail and stunning quality. There are more than 8 million pixels with enhanced processing in these TVs, so no matter where you’re sitting in the room, you’re sure to see a very sharp, crisp screen.

If your cable were to go out during the game, you can enact your back-up plan and project the game from your smartphone directly onto the screen without losing clarity. The cutting edge 4K X-Reality Pro, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO and TRILUMINOS technology adds up to the most impressive picture available today.

And if the halftime show doesn’t hold your interest, switch on the Android TV for apps, games and other content connectivity.

The middle-range begins with Philip’s 49-inch Razor Slim 4K Ultra HDTV. The sports fan will love this TV, as the 120 perfect motion rate affords increased pixel response times for clear, vibrant images as the action heats up and changes quickly from play to play during the game. When the players are moving fast, the pixel response times track and keep up with the moves, so you don’t get blurry or fuzzy images.

It works flawlessly with other 4K source devices and features HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 on all HDMI ports and built-in HVEC and VP9 decoders that enable the TV to handle 4K Blu-ray, cable, satellite and streaming 4K media, all in a high-quality picture.

You can utilize this TV to mirror any smart device and enjoy immerse sound with clear voice technology designed by Sonic Emotion with Absolute3D sound. It also has intelligent dimming backlight for a dynamic contrast.

Next up in the middle-range group are LG’s 49-inch & 55-inch 4K UHD Smart LED TVs. They offer four times the resolution of full HD televisions. UHD delivers exceptional clarity and detail, even when viewed up close. This means you can watch the game on a large screen in a smaller size room without losing picture quality.

Color Prime Pro produces a wider range of colors for more accurate and lifelike pictures. The Ultra Luminance and enhanced brightness and contrast help reveal even more detail from High Dynamic Range (HDR) content. And the TruMotion 120Hz technology allows you to see all the high-speed action of the game with virtually no motion blur.

Also, the IPS panel uses in-plane switching to deliver rich color and strong contrast ratio that remain consistent no matter the viewing angle. With IPS, any seat becomes the best seat in the house, perfect for watching the big game with friends!

Ultra HDTVs “UHD (ultra-high definition) TVs completely transform the picture to show intense detail and stunning no matter where you’re sitting in the room, you’re sure to see a very sharp, crisp screen."

Leading off the lower-range models is Haier’s 49-inch LED HDTV 1080p, which is a good entry point into the world of HDTVs if you have not yet made that jump. It features a thin frame measuring less than a half-inch with a sharp, clear high-definition picture that translates to a great viewing experience for your big party.

It contains three HDMIs, one of which is MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) that enables you to connect compatible devices like smartphones, tablets or a Roku Streaming Stick. It also has two dedicated sound chambers for advanced sound quality with superior dampening, improved mid-range response, cleaner bass and richer overall sound. The ENERGY STAR rating assures it will save energy during its lifespan.

The Philips 32-inch LED Smart TV 720p is a great entry-point upgrade to a smart TV at a great price. You’ll enjoy watching the game on this TV because it offers enhanced motion sharpness and great connectivity options for an endless supply of programming once the game is over, including Netflix, YouTube, Vudu, Pandora, Facebook and more. You can connect wirelessly to access the internet to get all the highlights and post-game analysis right from your TV and enjoy rich sound via DTS TruSurround.

For a great surround sound experience during the game, place a few Sengled Pulse LED bulbs into your living room light fixtures near your TV. Each bulb contains a hidden Bluetooth speaker that can be synced with your smart TV for a true surround sound experience. You’ll clearly hear the quarterback calls at the line of scrimmage, the crowd noise and referee explanations after each challenge flag is thrown onto the field during the game.

Keep Beverages Cold During the Game

Rely on your favorite Yeti products to keep your beverages ice cold during the game. You can keep the cooler right next to the TV so nobody misses any action, and the contents will still be cold no matter how warm the room gets.

Place all your favorites into a Yeti Tundra or Hopper cooler and throw a bag of ice on top. Your ice is guaranteed to still be there well into the night after the game, and the next night after the game too! You can pour your favorite gameday drink into a Yeti Tumbler, and it will help retain the ice so your drink stays cold all game long. They also work great at keeping beverages like coffee and tea hot. If you prefer to drink out of a can, use the Yeti Rambler Colster to keep your beverage ice cold with no sweat running down the sides. The stainless steel construction will come in handy when the crowd goes wild celebrating the score.

Smart Appliances Help with Your Big Game Spread and Cleanup

Samsung’s Slide-in Electric Flex Duo Range with Wi-Fi connectivity is great for cooking your gameday items faster, smarter and on schedule. You can set the oven to begin baking at a preset time so all of the dishes are ready by kickoff. There are three racks that can be configured to fit all your casserole dishes and a large baking pan all at the same time. You can operate the oven on two different temperature settings using the divider so you don’t have to worry about smells mixing since no one wants to open the oven to check the cookies and smell an onion aroma.

Samsung’s Slide-in Induction Range allows you to choose between the normal double oven where you cook everything at the same time at the same temperature or divide the space to have two smaller ovens that can be set to two different temperatures. For those who try to warm the buffalo wings and cook the banana bread at the same time, always burning one or the other, this oven would be a welcomed addition in the kitchen.

Another great feature is the induction range. If you haven’t used an induction range before, you’re in for a real treat! The best thing about an induction range is the stove top barely gets hot, so when all the kids are running though the kitchen during the game, you won’t have to worry about little fingers getting burned. It's what makes Samsung's Slide-in Induction Range one of the most innovative smart appliances.

After the game, speed up the dishwashing time using a dishwasher that has more space and powerful cleaning so you can skip the prewash. Toss the dirty dishes into the Samsung Top Control Dishwasher with StormWash and let it work while you enjoy the post-game show.
