This OLED TV took the number one spot.

Surprise, surprise—the best TV of 2020 this LG OLED TV is also the best TV for watching sports. "OLED TVs use a new screen technology that makes for amazing contrast, vivid colors, and incredibly wide viewing angles," our home theater editor, Lee Neikirk, explains. "Their hyper-thin screens utilize a build that puts very little processing between the incoming video signal and what you see, meaning they also handle fast-moving content like sports very well." It may be a little pricey, but it's well worth the cost, Lee says.

2. This TV for sports fans on a budget: Vizio P Series Quantum (2019)

"For that price you’re getting 4K resolution, great HDR performance, quantum dot-boosted color, and—most importantly—a native 120 Hz refresh rate," Lee says. "The higher refresh rate gives the TV an advantage when handling fast motion, making it perfect for sports."

This might be Vizio's best TV yet.

He adds that it's a little more costly (and it only comes in one size, 65-inch) but it offers 4K resolution, HDR, and the 120 Hz refresh rate that’s great for sports-watching.
