Best bargains for a Super Bowl TV

The big game deserves a big TV. News 3’s Mark Koehn talked with Jim Wilcox from Consumer Reports for tips on how to get the best deal on a new TV before Super Bowl LI and what features to look for.

“Black Friday gets all the attention, but we did a pricing analysis over three years and found out the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are actually the second-best time of year to buy a TV,” Wilcox said.

Consumer Reports’ analysis found promotions before the Super Bowl push TV prices down nearly 22 percent, Wilcox said.

Wilcox said 2017 is the year to buy a 4K TV since prices have dropped significantly and having the upgraded resolution will future-proof consumers for when more 4K content is available.
