If you are like many Americans, fall means one thing: football. With the season underway, perhaps it is time to update your entertainment center with a few extras that will make the football watching experience even better. We put together a list of the Top 5 enhancements that you’ll want to check out as you get ready to host friends and family for the next big game.
1.) The Right TV
While that medium-sized, flat screen TV you have been using for the last ten years is certainly sufficient for your needs, does it add anything to your football-watching? Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a larger smart TV. You’ll find many options ranging from affordable to outrageous. However, one option you may want to give extra consideration to is the Samsung, 40 inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV. This TV offers all of the smart features that you want, without a price tag that will put a damper on your snack budget. Now’s the Time to upgrade so you can enjoy this TV all season long. The same TV is available in larger sizes too, if you have the space to spare.

2.) Keep Things Neat
As you start adding more speakers, boxes, and other accessories to your TV and entertainment center, you may find that the number of cables that you have back there becomes overwhelming. Luckily you’re not stuck with a massive tangle. Check out this Cable Management Box Organizer by DMoose.

3.) Making Surround Sound Simple
A few years ago, having a surround sound system meant that you would have cords and wires strung all over your home. However new advancements in Bluetooth and other technology has made it easier than ever to have to surround sound experience, which makes football that much more fun, without all the hassle. Check out these simple portable Bluetooth Surround Sound Speakers by Fugoo. These could be your perfect introduction to the surround sound lifestyle.

4.) Keep Things Under Control
Once you add more components to your entertainment system, you need something to keep everything under control. The Amazon Echo System may be it. You can use your Echo to help with tasks such as turning on and off audio, streaming music during halftime, adjusting the thermostat and getting answers to your questions–such as who is winning the other games this weekend. Alexa, the virtual assistant you’ll encounter through your Amazon Echo, could be your best friend this football season.

5.) Take The Game To Go
If you are like many people, your life is getting busier than ever before. You may not be able to sit down and watch all of your favorite games this year. Why not pick up an affordable tablet so you can check out the games on the go? The all-new Fire HD tablet, from Amazon, allows you to connect to your favorite streaming stations that you may already get with your cable plan. If you have access to ESPN at home, you may be able to stream it on the go to as long as you have access to a WiFi connection. What could be better than that?
