Are You Ready For Some Football…. On HD???

Friday, September 25th, 2009

The leaves are falling and the temperatures will soon plummet too. What does that mean for Chicagoans? It’s time for Football. Whether you are a Bears fan or just a football lover, it’s always important to spend Thursday nights, Sundays, and Monday nights watching all of your favorite games.

Sometimes, a trip to the in-laws is unavoidable. What could be worse than having a family weekend when the Bears and Packers are playing at noon on Sunday? I’ll tell you—going to your in-laws house when they don’t have a football-worthy HDTV. I’m not the only one that feels this way. Samsung actually did a little research on the topic. They commissioned a survey to find out how enticing it would be to have an HDTV at the in-laws.

Samsung’s survey found that Americans, football fans or not, agreed the best TV to watch football on is hi-def. Football fans agreed if they didn’t have the option to watch the big game from the comfort of home on their own HDTV, the best option would be to go to the in-laws if there were a hi-def TV in place. According to the survey, more than 4 out of 10 football fans believe this to be true. Men were more likely than women, however, to make the trek to the in-laws to watch football in hi-def. Samsung also noted, football fans found the quality of TV was more important than the food they ate while watching the game.

Go Bears!
