Will using the 120Hz setting on my TV make the Super Bowl look better or worse?

This year's Super Bowl is being broadcast on Fox, so it will be at 720P, at 60 Hz.

I normally have that turned off, but for watching sports with fast action, does it help turning that feature on? Or will it be more annoying than beneficial?


If it matters, I have an LG 55" UHD with HDR that I bought 1.5 years ago.

    The best way to find out is by trying it.

    The pregame show(s) should be sufficient for you to experiment with.

    Unfortunately such features when enabled on such a low quality signal tend to make no difference, but it doesn't hurt to try.   There's no reason to seek advice on it.  Try it out and see if it makes any difference to you.

    This guy says it's good for sports


    and the authorseems very knowledgeable.

    Look at the paragraph (several "page downs" down) that begins:

    "Refresh rates and motion-enhancing modes higher than 60Hz..."

    I quote:

    ...for sports and video games, those added frames can help reduce stuttering and blur, and the action will be easier to track...

    It might reduce motion blur
