4 Things Every Sports Fan Needs for Game Day

Game day is about more than just sports. It’s about creating the ultimate fan experience complete with family, friends, and a jalapeño popper or two. But first, consider your watching environment. Is your TV up to snuff, so you know you won’t miss a single moment? Oh, and how is the sound? Do you feel like you’re part of the action? Can your friend, who’s just there for the snacks, still get comfy even if he’s not glued to the game? We’ve rounded up everything an enthusiast needs to play nice all season long, no matter which sport you love.

1. A Mega-Screen Is a Must

When hosting a sports watch party, your event calls for a TV that puts everyone smack-dab in the center of the game. The Samsung 60″ QLED 4K UHD Smart TV features cool, warm Dual LEDs for various shades of Quantum Dot color and natural looking pictures. And thanks to 100% Color Volume, you can upscale to 4K for details and colors that stay true even in the brightest of scenes.

Featuring an AirSlim design and built-in Alexa, this Samsung 70-Inch Class QLED Q60B Series TV provides the full fan experience: Watch the game, shop online for fan gear, and access the latest stats all from one (giant) screen. What’s more, at Rent-A-Center, there’s no hassle and no credit options, which means you’ll be watching your favorite team from the comfort your living room faster than you can say “touchdown.” (OK, maybe it takes just a little bit longer than that.)

2. Get Loud and Clear with an Audio System

The built-in speakers on your new TV are not bad. Not bad at all. But when you want to create that immersive viewing experience in your home with movie theater surround sound and bass you can feel in your chest, you really need to consider a high performance home theater system from Rent-A-Center.

A quality sound system will filter out distortion and noise ensuring you don’t miss a second of commentary, the crunch of football pads colliding, or the crack of the ball against the bat.

3. Get Games Galore

Off-season can be a letdown and the feeling can last for months. The solution: Draft yourself and face off against friends in games like FIFA 23, NBA 2K23, Madden NFL, or MLB: The Show with a gaming system from Rent-A-Center. Choose from the top systems, including Microsoft XBOX Series X and Sony PlayStation 5.

Our Worry-Free Guarantee includes anytime upgrades so you can get the latest and greatest system as soon as you want. That same promise also provides peace of mind with flexible payment options and our Payment Freeze Assurance.

4. Get the Best Seat in the House with Rent-A-Center

Sports fans know the value of a good seat, especially when hosting a watch party party for friends and family. This is why Rent-A-Center offers recliners, sectionals and sofas, and loveseats in a wide variety of styles and materials for your sports season ragers. Whether you’re watching playoffs on the edge of your seat, researching your next Fantasy team, or resting between games, Rent-A-Center furniture goes the distance. The best part? Rent-A-Center includes free same-day delivery** and set-up at no extra charge.
