Shopping for a Big Screen TV?
The Super Bowl is just around the corner. Even if your favorite team isn’t playing, there’s still the halftime show and new commercials to look forward to. And your Super Bowl enjoyment will only be enhanced by viewing it on a new big screen TV.
If you’re in the market for a new TV, now’s a great time to shop for one. Most major retailers are running deals on the latest television technology in anticipation of Super Bowl sales.
What to look for
Before you hit the stores, spend some time thinking about what’s important to you. Picture quality, screen size and price will help you determine which model is right for you. Don’t forget about optional features like widescreen and HDTV. If you want high definition, make sure you are getting an HD signal or that you are OK with paying more to upgrade your service.
Once you find the model that you’re interested in, do some online research. Type the model number and the word “review” into your search engine and see what others are saying about it.
When you get to the store, check out the picture quality. Keep in mind that other customers may have changed the television’s settings, so ask an associate for the remote control so you can adjust them or have them do it for you.
Once you’ve made your purchase, be sure to write down the model and serial number – and even take a photo – so you can easily add it to your Nationwide homeowners insurance policy. It always pays to be covered in case of the unexpected.
