The biggest football game of the year has come and gone with the Steelers taking the Super Bowl trophy and sending the Cardinals home with nothing but memories of the franchises first trip to the Super Bowl. The best way to watch the Super Bowl was certainly on a nice HDTV and according to the CEA, the game drove some significant sales of TVs.

The big game was expected to drive about 2.6 million HDTV sales as people geared up to watch in HD. Despite the poor economy, the CEA says that it expects 2009 to be another big year for HDTV sales with 29.8 million HDTVs expected to ship.
It's not surprising to see that the Super Bowl drove significant HDTV sales. Many electronics retailers were offering prices on HDTVs as good as or even better than what was offered on Black Friday. Walmart for example had some very good bargains on HDTVs in preparation for the Super Bowl.
