Experiencing The SuperBowl

Super Bowl Tech: So close, you can smell the Astroturf! The roar of the crowd, the cheerleaders; The whole experience is nirvana to a football enthusiast, and big screen TVs bring it all home like never before! But for those searching for the ultimate "home bowl" theater experience, that begs the question: Which Big Screen is the best?

Tune in and listen as Craig explains what's new in TV's and digital technology and what you'll want to know before you make that "Superbowl" purchase.

It's less than two weeks away and many of us will spend Superbowl Sunday cheering for the New England Patriots as they tackle the Philadelphia Eagles.

A recent survey found that more of us like to watch the Superbowl on a big screen TV than in person at the stadium. --- According to this survey:

  • 57% chose the big screen over the stadium (17%)
  • 82% plan to watch at least some of the Superbowl on TV in 2005
  • 20% would consider buying a big screen TV if their favorite team made it to the championships
  • 53% named the big screen TV the MVP of the perfect Superbowl party
  • And Surprise, Surprise, Surprise ... Men and Women like watching the superbowl for different reasons; 46% of men said the game was the best part while 46% of women chose the commercials
This is a great time to buy a new TV! Some of the big electronic stores are even guaranteeing delivery for Superbowl Sunday if you purchase an in-stock TV.
