Black Friday and Cyber Monday aren’t the only times you can find great deals on great-looking TVs. February is when many retailers try to clear out their existing inventory to make room for the upcoming models and this means big TVs at small(er) prices. Our Home Theater News Editor Robert Silva laid out his suggestions for the best way to Watch Super Bowl LVII (aka Super Bowl 57). Here are our suggestions on the best TVs to watch it on, and the best deals on these TVs.
This year marks the first time the Super Bowl will be broadcast in Dolby Vision HDR (on a limited number of providers) so we’d recommend a set with Dolby Vision to take full advantage of this opportunity. Size matters when it comes to TVs, so we’re recommending models in the 75-inch to 77-inch size. If this is a little large for your room, all of these models are available in smaller sizes.
For the best motion reproduction and contrast, we’d recommend an OLED TV. Both Sony and LG make OLED TVs with Dolby Vision support. But OLED TVs are still significantly more expensive than most LED/LCD TVs, so we’ll include one budget-minded set (non-OLED) which includes 4K resolution with Dolby Vision HDR and offers excellent performance without breaking the bank.

LG C2 Series OLED TV (77-inch) – $2247 after Cash Back Offer
LG’s C2 Series won many publications’ “Best TV” pick for 2022. It is one of our favorites at eCoustics. The 77-inch screen size is ideal for taking in every bit of the action on the big game. With its deep inky black levels, precise color accuracy and rich color saturation, the C2 series TVs also make a great choice for watching movies and binging TV series.
Amazon is offering an excellent price on the 77-inch C2 ($2496.99). This is about $1,000 off its original list price. If you pay using an Amazon Prime store card or Amazon credit card, the retailer has a promotion going where you get 10% cash back after purchase as a statement credit. This means another $250 discount off the sale price. So that’s a net price of $2247.29 after the cash back. Here’s the link:
> 77-inch LG C2 Series OLED TV: $2496.99 ($2247 after cash back offer) – Amazon
The C2 series offer full 4K resolution with Dolby Vision HDR. LG’s native WebOS smart TV platform provides access to all of the popular streaming services. The C2 series is available in sizes from 42 inches all the way up to 83 inches, but we feel the 77-inch size currently offers the best size-vs.-price tradeoff for most viewers. If you have a smaller living room or viewing space, the 65-inch version is on sale for $1696.99 and is eligible for 5% cash back (about $85).
Sony 77-inch A80K OLED TV: $2698 ($2428.20 After Cash Back)
Featuring an OLED panel manufactured by LG Display, the Sony A80K OLED TV features Sony’s proprietary video processing to tweak even higher performance out of an already excellent panel. The A80K series features Dolby Vision and full native 4K resolution. It has Google TV on board for access to all of the popular audio, video and cloud gaming apps.
Also available in multiple screen sizes, the 77-inch model offers excellent bang for your buck, only a bit more expensive than the LG. It’s currently on sale for $2698 and is eligible for the same 10% cash back offer as the LG if you pay using an Amazon credit card. This brings the net price after cash back to $2,428.20 – the lowest price we’ve ever seen on this TV. Here’s the link:

TCL 75-inch 75S555 QLED TV: $699.99 ($665 after Cash Back)
Not everyone wants to invest over $2,000 in a TV, and for those there are still some great (non-OLED) options. TCL’s S555 line of QLED TVs are LCD TV’s which uses LED backlighting and a Quantum Dot layer to provide rich accurate colors. Unlike some competitive LED/LCD sets, the TCL is highly rated for motion resolution, which makes it a good choice for watching football, or really any sport. This TV is eligible for Amazon’s standard 5% cash back offer (if bought with an Amazon card), for a $35 statement credit after purchase. Here’s the link:
