With all the March Madness games that will be played here soon, it’s going to be interesting to see how new television and entertainment technology affects the way viewers watch their favorite college teams square off on the court. 4K’s have created a bunch of excitement with the way that they allow the viewer to sit closer and fill more of the viewer’s field of view, while keeping excellent picture quality even while close up.
People are amped up about March Madness this year, especially with such an exciting NBA season going on. There’s a lot that goes into preparing a home to be fit for hosting tournament action. March Madness is a favorite time of year for sport’s fans. The month long tournament culminates with the Final Four matchup, where the top 4 teams in the country face off to see who will be crowned the National Champion. But those who are looking to host a successful March Madness fiesta will need the proper entertainment setup to be able to watch all the games.
Find the Right TV
Finding the right television set right in time for March Madness is one of the most important parts about getting set for the tournament. The sound system is important, but the television is the billboard that announces “this is the place to be.” These days there are a variety of options to choose from when it comes to TV selections. Plasma screens are no longer being produced. Those that may be needing an HDTV and want one in time for the Tournament can find a quality LED/LCD option in most stores and among online vendors.
There is a lot of buzz going around about these new TVs. They allow the people watching to sit closer and keep the amazing detail even right up close. That’s because their resolution quality is 4 times the amount of the resolution of 1080p TVs. Those looking for the next big thing this spring can look to 4K TVs. 4K content is not widely available yet, but 4K’s feature upgrading technology that can optimize the signals even if they aren’t 4K-quality yet.
Cable or Satellite Providers
The first broadcasted sports event in 4K will be the Master’s in Augusta this year in April. That means that March Madness won’t be broadcasted in 4K. That being said, it’s still important to be sure that the best quality feeds possible are coming in to a home. And as cable and satellite providers are offering the networks that will feature March Madness in HD,
Watch the Games Live
While DVR is an okay option for the popular shows, no one wants to have to wait to watch the Tournament. Looking ahead to March Madness is hard enough, but having to wait even longer and avoid spoilers is practically impossible. The only way to avoid missing out on the action is to watch the games live.
Home Entertainment System
The next important aspect of hosting a group to watch the Tournament is the sound system. Those that don’t have an external sound system apart from their television’s speakers may be interested in purchasing one for March Madness and future events. Besides the quality of the TV, there is nothing that can excite a sports fan better than a sound system that make the living room feel like you’re inside of the stadium.
March Madness this year is bound to be a thriller, even for the casual sports fan. The only thing left to decide after setting up the entertainment room is who you have left in your bracket by the Final Four.
