D&H Distributing Reminds Retailers to Optimize CE Offerings for Spring Sports
As D&H Distributing, the leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, approaches the close of its tenth decade in business, the distributor encourages its retailers, etailers and dealers that spring sports season is a terrific opportunity to offer large screen, high-def smart TVs.
Events such as the March Madness basketball tournaments beginning on March 14, the opening of major league baseball on April 2, the 2017 Master Tournament starting April 6, and the NBA Playoff schedule commencing April 15 provide motivation for sports enthusiasts to upgrade their current displays. This is especially true since price points on ultra high-definition displays have made these amenities more accessible, offering exceedingly crisp details in a large-scale format for engaging, immersive fan experiences.
Value models such as the Hisense H7B2 65-inch LED-LCD or 60-inch LED TV feature 1080p resolution, and technologies such as “AquoMotion” help maintain a sharp, clear image even when the on-screen action speeds up. And both models allow fans to easily stream exclusive sports subscription media such as The MLB and ESPN networks, in addition to content from services such as Hulu, Pandora, Amazon Video, and Netflix. For an even larger screen, the 75-inch Philips 6000 LED-LCD TV offers a tremendous viewing area in Ultra HD, with media streaming.
Consumers can be enticed into stores through demos of cutting-edge entertainment including new virtual reality (VR) headsets, such as the Samsung Gear and Supersonic smartphone headsets, and videogaming headsets like the Sony PlayStation®VR unit. Retailers and etailers can capitalize on these trends, bundling VR equipment and gaming systems into spring TV packages.
“D&H is always looking to suggest new strategies for retailers that will attract customers to their floors,” said John Alifano, director of sales at D&H Distributing. “Leveraging branded, high-profile sporting events and sought-after technologies like virtual reality is a savvy recommendation, since these elements each carry a high ‘cool factor.’ Such immersive entertainment experiences can help motivate consumers and generate spring sales.”
