Enhance your big game experience with TV tips from the experts at Abt.
No other day puts more focus on watching TV than Super Sunday, so before the big game airs, it’s a good idea to make sure your television is operating to its full potential.
- First things first. Let’s make sure you’re getting the best picture possible. The first step is to verify that you’re actually receiving HD service. HDTV picture quality is dramatically better than Standard Definition, and with more than double the resolution it will give a more lifelike game experience. However, just having an HDTV doesn’t guarantee you’re getting an HD signal. You’ll need to make sure you’re receiving an HD signal and have and HD capable receiver from your cable or satellite provider. Some cable/satellite boxes will say “HD” or “High Defnition” somewhere on the front. If there’s no designation, one surefire way to tell if your box is HD-capable is the presence of an HDMI port.
