If you can't make the game in person this year, some simple accessories can transform your home into the ultimate gameday experience!

Tuning into the big game from the comfort of your own home doesn't have to be boring. These simple accessories are must-haves to spruce up your entertainment center—whether it's indoors or out.


Game on TV

Getting the big game on the big screen is the most crucial task of any homegate. You’ll need a few essential items to make sure the game comes on without a glitch. Whether you're accessing your favorite sports through a TV antenna, cable or satellite system, coax cable is key and comes in a variety of lengths to accommodate any entertainment setup. A 6ft. cable is perfect for compact setups, but if you need extended reach, these extra-long 25ft. and 50ft. coax cables will make sure you don't miss a touchdown, field goal, home run or 3-pointer.

Planning to watch simultaneous games on multiple TVs? Just add a splitter and some extra coax cable to the mix—the digital signal will be evenly distributed to each connected TV. If you're a streamer who gets your sports buzz through live TV streaming services like YouTube TV, fuboTV, Hulu, Sling TV or CBS All Access, you'll want to make sure your streaming device HDMI Cables are in good shape and can handle all of the fast-paced action. Then, simply top off your homegating setup with a universal remote to control all your devices. Now you're ready to cheer on your team!

Long Charging Cord

You'll need your phone to text, stream and scorecheck on gameday, so don't be left without power. Charge your phone or mobile device with an extra-long charging cable and literally never leave your couch again. Create a powering station for all of your various devices with a USB hub that can charge several devices at once. If aesthetics are your thing, cover up all those cords and cables with a fabric cord cover to give your home theater a more finished, professional look.


OutdoorsPatio with Cafe Lights

Any experienced homegater knows the sun often sets long before the game ends. If your homegate takes place on the patio, string lights are a must! LED string lights are far and away the most recommended lighting items you can bring to your patio homegate fiesta. Hanging these easy-to-use beauties on your patio, tent or pavilion is a fantastic, energy-efficient solution. Through color-changing options and preset modes, you can even let your team colors shine. But don't stop there!

Landscape Lights on walkway

Puck lights are a cool addition to any landscape oasis. Line your walkway, patio or deck area with color-changing Landscape lights.

Connect your café lights and other landscaping features to an easy-to-use outdoor timer to boost your outdoor sports area. The family of myTouchSmart timers eliminates the need to manually turn ON/OFF landscape and lighting fixtures and offers a complete line of plug-in digital timers, yard stakes, light-sensing timers and more with versatile automation options.

Don't let being stuck at home ruin your gameday experience. With just a few accessories, you can be right in the middle of all the action from the comfort of your home!
