The Appliances You Need for Fall Sports Parties

October 15, 2021

Fall is here. For many people, that means the return of college and NFL football, and getting together with friends and family to watch the game.

If you are planning to host viewing parties at your house this year, you will want to make sure you have your home ready, so no one misses a play. You might not consider appliances to be vital for watching a sports game, but they can make all the difference and ensure your game day party is the one everyone talks about for seasons to come.

The absolute most important part of any game day party is the game itself. Since you and your guests will be watching the game on your television, it will be the focal point of the party. Make sure you have a high-quality TV for your guests to watch the big game.

If you are looking for a new TV this season, get the one with the sharpest picture possible and ensure you have the correct screen size for your space. For help selecting the best TV for your party, check out our TV Buying Guide.


Have you ever been to a game day party and not been able to hear the game? There’s nothing worse than missing the call on a play and being left confused about what just happened. Prevent your guests from getting frustrated by this with a quality soundbar.

For many people, a soundbar is a quick and easy way to improve the sound quality of your television. There are several factors to consider when buying a soundbar to upgrade the audio of your TV:

  • Size - Ensure the soundbar will fit into the area you have designated. You may also want one that is the same size as your television.
  • Placement - If you’re planning to mount your soundbar to the wall, ensure the one you choose is mountable.
  • Budget - Determine your budget before shopping to see what options are available in your price range.
  • Smart Soundbars - Do you want a soundbar with Google Assistant or that is Amazon Alexa compatible?

If your current oven or range isn’t ideal for your lifestyle, take this opportunity to treat yourself, and your family, to an upgraded model before the holidays arrive. Shop our selection of cooking appliances.


One of the most important appliances for your party is an adequate refrigerator. There are many factors involved in selecting the right refrigerator for your home. Size, type features, finish, and functionality should all be considered. An intense game can leave your guests thirsty. Consider a refrigerator with an ice maker and water dispenser to make it easy for everyone to refill their drinks without missing a play. You will also need plenty of room to keep your beverages and snacks perfectly chilled, so make sure your refrigerator has adequate space. For more help with choosing a refrigerator to fit your needs, refer to our Refrigerator Buying Guide.

Bring your hosting status to the next level with a beverage cooler or wine fridge.

Ovens and Ranges

Preparing for a game day gathering could have you thinking about an oven or range upgrade. Cooking for a group of people can get time consuming. An oven that can cook multiple dishes simultaneously can give you more time to spend with your guests while enjoying the game.

Some things to consider when you are buying an oven or range include:

  • Gas or electric
  • Size
  • Capacity
  • Single or double ovens
  • Added features - Self-cleaning, safety (hot surface warning, door locks), Wi-Fi connectivity, air fryer settings, and convection

Kitchen Appliance Packages

If you need multiple appliances, it can be a great time of the year to treat yourself to a full kitchen upgrade. There are several benefits to purchasing a kitchen appliance package, including:

  • Discounted pricing
  • Matching appliance finishes
  • Smart appliance syncing
  • Extra rebates
