Create the excitement of your favourite sports game at home

Whether you're an avid hockey, football or basketball fan, you're probably counting down the days for the season to begin. If you're not at the game seeing the action live, the next best thing for a devoted fan is a great television with amazing picture quality. Luckily, new technologies can almost make you feel like you're in the crowd.

If you're in the market for a TV, 4K is a must-have feature. It makes everything crisper and clearer, with sharp contrast, vivid colours, and deep blacks — from watching the puck speeding into the net to a close-up of the quarterback rushing past the touchdown line, you won't miss a single play.

Here are a few essential features to look for:

Viewing angle: A television with a wide viewing angle is vital when you're inviting friends over for a party — beer and chicken wings are great, but the game is what they came for. The LG OLED E7 has a viewing angle of 180 degrees, giving an excellent view from almost any position in your room.

Picture quality: Choose a TV that has deep blacks and high contrast. This will help you watch games during the day or night without the picture getting washed out in brighter lights.

Motion performance: Opt for a TV that has little to no motion lag or blur. Sports usually broadcast at higher refresh rates, which TVs with OLED technology were made for since they have instant response time. Though the players are moving fast, this feature will ensure a crisp and smooth picture throughout the entire game.
