Best Buy : Getting the picture; TV shoppers go all in before Super Bowl Sunday

02/06/2016 | 06:34am US/Eastern

Feb. 06--A Panthers victory at the Super Bowl would be the perfect ending to the game for many North Carolina football fans.

And many fans want the perfect television to watch the game.

The National Retail Federation estimated that 8.6 million Americans would buy new televisions near game day on Sunday. Overall, the federation said, almost 184 million people will watch the Super Bowl, and partygoers will spend more than $80 on food, décor, team apparel and other items.

"The Super Bowl is a big promotional period," said Mark Graham, owner of Alamance TV and Home Furnishings on Fonville Street in Burlington. "A lot of manufacturers will put very attractive pricing on televisions. We have sold a number of them."

Most people are looking for flat-screen TVs in the 55- to 65-inch range, he said.

Bob Andrijov, general manager of Best Buy in Burlington, said that TVs have been selling swiftly at his store.

"It's just a really good time to buy a television," he said. "We have definitely seen a lot of people coming in looking a TV for the Super Bowl and beyond."

Of particular interest is the 4K High-Definition Television. Best Buy has one on sale for almost $8,000.

It spans 78 inches and offers an 8 million-pixel viewing experience.

"It comes down to better contrast, color and clarity," he said. "It's like looking out the window and seeing what's out there."

Jeff Davis was at the Best Buy on Friday browsing for a television. He decided to "just pop in" to take a look at Best Buy's inventory.

His plans for the Super Bowl are simple: "Just chilling at the house."
