The Nintendo Switch offers great games that you can play at home or while on the go, including instant classics such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, your experience with the console could become even better if you upgrade it with accessories.

There are many kinds of accessories that you can buy for your Nintendo Switch, each providing different kinds of benefits. However, for both new owners and those who have had the console since day one, here are three of the best Nintendo Switch accessories you should have in your arsenal today.

AmazonBasics Carrying Case for Nintendo Switch — $11

A carrying case will protect your Nintendo Switch from different kinds of damage, whether you have it on your desk where it may be knocked off, or if you place it in your backpack where it is prone to scratches. The AmazonBasics Carrying Case, on sale for $11, also includes holders for up to 10 game cartridges and a mesh pouch for cables, as well as a built-in stand to prop up the console at a comfortable angle while playing.

Joy-Con Charging Dock for Nintendo Switch — $18

The Nintendo Switch comes with two Joy-Cons, but extra controllers are always welcome for more fun with multiplayer games such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party. To make sure that your Joy-Cons are always ready, they should be hooked up to the TalkWorks Joy-Con Charging Dock, which is being sold for $18. The charging dock can charge up to four controllers at once, with LED lights indicating whether the Joy-Cons are fully juiced up and ready for battle.

128GB SanDisk microSD Card for Nintendo Switch — $26

There are so many great games for the Nintendo Switch that it’s easy to fill up its internal storage of 32GB. Fortunately, the console’s storage may be expanded with microSD cards such as the SanDisk 128GB microSDXC, which may be purchased on Amazon for $26. The officially licensed microSD card, compatible with both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, offers extra space for installed games, save files, and video captures. If you purchase multiple microSD cards, you can easily access all your games by swapping them out.

All those accessories and everything related to Nintendo, you can purchase them at a low price during Black Friday thanks to Nintendo Switch deals.

Hulu with Live TV Free Trial: Everything you need to know
Hulu on Roku.

Online streaming services are excellent for watching a wide variety of shows and movies, even exclusive content, but alas, they're not a true replacement for cable or satellite TV. That's where the best live TV streaming services come in. In fact, Hulu has its own live TV streaming service in its Hulu with Live TV package, which is one of the largest streaming platforms by subscriber count (more than 4 million, in case you were wondering). It's a more comprehensive streaming service than basic Hulu, though, so it's naturally a bit pricier. The higher price may warrant a testing period. It's always good to give something a try before spending your hard-earned money, which leaves you wondering: Is there a Hulu with Live TV free trial available? Here's what you need to know.

vilinice noise cancelling headphones deals walmart may 2023 press render

Not everyone is an audiophile. Some of us just need some comfy headphones to listen to podcasts and music casually.

Here’s how you can get a free 55-inch 4K TV today (seriously)
Telly looks to show scores and other game information — along with ads — while you're watching in real time.

It's unlikely you're going to find any other TV deals that actually get you a whole TV entirely for free. However, that's exactly what Telly is offering right now. Touting itself as the "biggest thing to happen to TV", consumers can sign up to reserve a 55-inch 4K TV entirely for free. The catch? Well, there's a few of them and that mostly depends on how you feel about handing over information about yourself, as well as constantly viewing adverts alongside your TV viewing experience. Don't write it off entirely just yet though. Let's take a look at exactly how the Telly model works and check out what we know about the free TV involved.

Why you should sign up for Telly
There's a lot to take in about Telly. To start with, it's worth paying attention to the TV involved. Simply put, we don't know the brand or whether it stems from the best TV brands or not. We're guessing not. After the Telly announcement, we talked to the Telly PR team to find out more and didn't get far. 500,000 TVs are available through the offer but Telly hasn't stated who the manufacturer is other than it's "the same manufacturers that produce may of the world’s top-of-line TV sets today." In terms of specifications, all we know is that it has a 4K resolution and HDR capability. If you're looking for one of the best TVs, this is very unlikely to be it.
