JUMIA: The Best Affordable TVs to watch football on

To cash in on good TV deals for a front row football experience, here’s all you need to know.

Only one group of football fans can get away with having a one of a kind 2018 tournament experience without the need to be live in Russia or break the bank. With 32 national teams playing, resulting in a total of 64 matches to be shown live on TV – all in HD and some possibly in 4k – in just over a month, there’s a lot of sensational expectations that cannot be missed out on.

To have the perfect immersion experience of the World Cup, your TV becomes the window to a world beyond your fingertips. What better way to get to that world while saving on costs than an affordable TV at your disposal?! Your TV can either water down or enhance your experience so it’s quintessential that you carefully select the right brand for your viewing pleasure.

How to choose the right TV

The Football Competition is a quadrennial opportunity for football fans to sit indoor, shout at the top of their lungs and make merry with little or no care about the rainbow outside their actual window. So, why not boost this experience by getting the right TV for the occasion.

With a desire to buy the right brand for your money’s worth, it can get a bit complicated when the technological lingua franca pops up. If you don’t know your HDR from your 1080p then here are four major things to look out for.

Screen Size

The bigger the screen, the bigger the experience, and the bigger the price. If too large your TV can take up too much space, thereby making your living room look smaller than it is. That’s why it’s advisable to opt for something large but wise, affordable and capable of creating your off-screen experience.  The large screens begin from 32 inches and can go anywhere up to 85 inches.


For better contrast and a clearer picture, your resolution should preferably be High Dynamic. A better resolution should be considered when purchasing a TV.


You can’t afford to miss out on that immersive experience of being a part of the show if you do not upgrade your sound by upgrading your TV. The sound must be clear and that’s why it’s advisable to purchase an affordable TV with a Dolby Digital Technology enhanced sound. Anything less would be agony to listen to when watching the Football Competition.


A television is practically a furniture in the home. Just as some furniture are more expensive than others, similarly, some Televisions are more expensive than others. This is why it’s advisable to consider your budget first when looking to purchase a TV set. Also, consider the cost of the TV, as well as its features. If it’s too high and would render you bankrupt then you can do without.


A rich display is determined by the colour reproduction and clarity of the image. This adds to the feeling of immersion when viewing images on your TV, and gives you a Live experience.
