For the past few years we have all heard about the economy and the doom and gloom reports by analysts saying that we are not spending, which is why many countries in Europe and also North America are still in a recession. However, heading to your local mall or shopping center will prove that consumers are still spending big, and this is more apparent as we have recently learned that TV sales have increased ahead of Super Bowl 2013, which takes place this Sunday.
Coverage of the Super Bowl XLVII is to begin today and it seems that sports fans want to take advantage of some cracking deals to view the game on a big screen TV. It’s great that big sporting events can help other markets, which is just what 4K TV makers hope will happen during the 2014 World Cup.
A recent report suggests that because stores know how big of a deal the Super Bowl is they are slashing prices to what we have seen during Black Friday, which makes it a win-win situation for the retailer and the consumer.
This is nothing new because these retailers buy in certain TV models in the hope of shifting them at prices as low as 37 percent of the RRP.
Every year the Super Bowl is on fans brag to their mates that they have a big screen TV and they are welcome to watch the big game at their house. In the past viewing the sport on a huge screen was never a nice time because the image quality was never that good because it was being stretched so much
However, times have changed and it doesn’t matter how big you go as there is no loss in quality — so yes bigger is better. Maybe go and see if you know someone with a 170-inch HD projector, just like my cousin.
