Best TVs for watching Super Bowl 2022

The biggest football game calls for a big screen. Here are some of our favorites at 65 inches and up.

The Super Bowl is almost here. After wild Divisional and Championship rounds, the upstart Cincinnati Bengals are set to meet the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET for the NFL title. The game will take place at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, which just so happens to be the Rams' home turf. This is the second consecutive year that the host city's team has made it to the Super Bowl -- the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won it at home last season. Will the Rams follow in their footsteps or will second-year phenom Joe Burrow lead the Bengals to the promised land? If the rest of the playoffs were any indication, this matchup looks like it could be an all-time classic. Some think that a game this exciting should have a TV that's up to the task. 

Big games like this are a great excuse to invest in a big screen, and TV-makers and retailers are rolling out their 2022 discounts. Price cuts aren't quite as deep as they were on Black Friday, but you'll still find some of CNET's favorite TVs on sale. New 2022 models are set to roll out in the coming months, so this will most likely be the last time you'll be able to snag a bargain on a new TV until prices drop again in the fall.

Here's some deals on the best TVs starting at 65 inches and going up (way up) from there. Although all of the TVs on this list are 4K resolution, it's worth noting that the 2022 Super Bowl isn't being delivered in 4K. In fact, the only Super Bowl that's ever been broadcast in 4K was the 2020 game on Fox. This year's championship will be on NBC, but the network has yet to broadcast a single football game in 4K, despite its limited efforts at the Olympics. It's good to remember that TVs with 4K resolution may be ubiquitous, but content from broadcasters has yet to catch up.

We called the TCL 6-Series one of the best TVs for the money and the 75-inch model is making our title even more accurate, as it's back to Black Friday pricing. This is a huge TV with an excellent picture that could help make this year's big game especially memorable. The TCL 6-Series Dolby Vision HDR TV has an excellent image thanks to mini-LED tech and well-implemented full-array local dimming that helps it run circles around just about any other TV at this price. It's also a solid choice for gamers, with a THX mode that combines low input lag and high contrast. As if that's not enough, the Roku TV operating system is our hands-down favorite. 

It's also available in 55- and 65-inch models.

With picture quality as good as any TV we've ever tested and a price that's not too crazy, the LG C1 OLED TV is one of our picks for the best TVs for 2022. Right now, the 65-inch model is back at its Black Friday pricing and is matching its all-time low. The C1 features perfect black levels, unbeatable contrast and superb off-angle viewing. It also has the best gaming features, making it the perfect companion to an Xbox Series X or S, PlayStation 5 or both. 

Also available in 48-, 55-, 77- and 83-inch models.

Roku is our favorite platform for live TV streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, and it's even better baked into the TV. This TCL 4-Series is our favorite cheap TV. It's not going to blow you away with its picture quality, but it's perfectly fine for most people. Those looking to go large for the big game will find that the 85-inch model is currently back to its all-time Amazon low. 

It also comes in smaller models, including 43-, 50- and 55-inch varieties.

TCL

The TCL 4-Series TV also comes in an Android TV version. Roku's operating system is a touch easier to navigate, but Google's platform offers excellent search functions and a straightforward layout. If you're looking for a huge TV that's also affordable, this TCL might be a good pick. 

Also available in 50- and 55-inch models.

Samsung

So what if image quality isn't your highest priority -- but size is? This Samsung is $100 cheaper than the 85-inch TCL 4-Series. It doesn't have Roku built in, but it is still a great price on an absolutely gigantic TV. It might not perform as well as some of the others on this list, but it's from a reputable brand and size makes up for a lot. And if you really want a Roku, you can just add your own.

Also available in 50-, 55-, 65- and 75-inch sizes.

65-inch Vizio V-Series

Save $100

Vizio's V-Series is one of our favorite budget TVs. We liked Roku's smart TV system better, but the V-Series has some advantages, including a better remote with voice and more advanced picture settings. The 65-inch model is back to its Black Friday pricing, matching an all-time low. 

It is also available in 50-, 55-, 58-, 70- and 75-inch models.

Best Buy

It's not often that you find a Sony TV at this price. The storied brand focuses on high-end models these days, which means that they tend to be expensive. We haven't reviewed this model, but we did review the X90J. Based on its specifications, the X85J probably won't perform as well as its more expensive sibling, but then again, this model is a lot cheaper. The X85J may lack some features of Sony's other TVs, but it still comes with Dolby Vision, a 120Hz refresh rate and the Google TV smart platform. 

Amazon

Tied into Amazon's ecosystem and looking for a huge, budget-friendly TV? The new 75-inch Amazon Fire TV Omni series might be just what you're looking for. This 4K TV comes with Dolby Vision support and built-in microphones for hands-free use of Alexa. It's also back to its all-time low, just in time for the big game. 

It also comes in 43-, 50-, 55- and 65-inch varieties.
