Samsung Partnering With ESPN This College Football Season
Samsung has announced today that it will be partnering with ESPN during this college football season, and using it to showcase its QLED TVs. The partnership that was struck between the two companies will showcase these new TVs as the best way to watch college football at home. Samsung is boasting that it offers 4K TVs at up to 88-inches, making every touchdown this season, a fantastic looking one.
In addition to touting QLED TVs as the best for watching at home, Samsung will also be highlighting the capabilities of its new QLED lineup at select tailgating events across the country this season. This tour will be visiting select pre-game festivities during some of the biggest games of the season. This includes games in Big Ten Country as well as in the Big 12, ACC and SEC. And it’s not stopping when the regular season is over, as it will also be at the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic and the College Football Playoff National Championship game, which is taking place in Santa Clara, CA. Samsung will be there touting its TVs, as well as showing off how QLED can transform each game into a big game, and giving away a variety of prizes to those in attendance.
Samsung’s QLED TVs are very popular, largely because they offer a premium viewing experience without the ultra premium price tag of OLED TVs from LG, Sony and others. And working with ESPN to showcase its TVs is definitely a smart move here, especially since College Football now gets more viewers than the NFL. The College Football truly gets underway tomorrow, with some pretty big matchups, including a few highly ranked teams facing off, like No. 6 Washington at No. 9 Auburn, and No. 14 Michigan at No. 12 Notre Dame, which are both prime time games.
