If you missed your chance to take home a 4K TV on the cheap on Black Friday 2019, you’re in luck: Walmart has revived one of the best deals we saw on the shopping bonanza, knocking $170 off the massive 65-inch LG UM6950. This sees it in the discount bin for just $480 — or as little as $47 per month through the retailer’s flexible 12-month financing scheme.

Frankly, the LG UM6950 has it all, offering access to everything you could ever need right out of the box. There’s an enormous 65-inch screen (4K Ultra HD, no less) on the front; multi-format HDR, which can be called upon to draw more detail from supported content; and LG’s intuitive webOS smart software for instant streaming through the likes of Disney+ and Netflix.

The television can even be hooked up to an Amazon Echo or Google Home for hands-free navigation. Decide to do this and you will be able to mumble all sorts of voice commands its way, such as telling it to turn on and off, switch to a different input method, and even track down and start playing specific content — all without having to reach for the remote control.

Let’s not forget this is a 4K TV, so it’s armed with the one feature that all reputable 4K TVs have: A 4K Upscale Engine. This is used to transform standard HD and Full HD content into a higher 4K Ultra HD resolution. You don’t have to do anything to activate it, either — the process takes place in the background, with the LG UM6950 activating it as and when required.

So all in all, the 65-inch LG UM6950 is a television aimed at the average viewer looking for a portal into the streaming-fueled future without all of the set-top boxes and streaming sticks that come with it, and with support for all the leading services, it will cater to the whole family. Not to mention the fact it’s large enough to sit at the center of any home entertainment setup.

Still not sure? Here’s what a customer, who also bought it on sale, had to say:

Great quality and awesome picture too! I was a bit wary because of the price but it blew me away. I love the Smart TV because it’s so simple to get to Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc. Just push one button and you’re there. Definitely would purchase again.

If you’re after something a bit different, there are several other 4K TV deals available now, including a 43-inch LG UM6950DUB for $350, a 50-inch Samsung NU6900 for $300, a 65-inch Samsung NU6900 for $480, a curved 65-inch Samsung RU7300 for $620, a 55-inch Sony X800G for $700, a 70-inch Vizio V-Series for $700, and a 65-inch Samsung Q60R QLED for $1,000.

Tired of streaming shows and movies on your 13-inch laptop when you're away from home? LG's StanbyMe Go might just be the answer you're looking for. It puts a 27-inch full HD LED touchscreen inside of a durable travel suitcase, along with a 20-watt speaker system and a three-hour rechargeable battery, so you can take your TV pretty much anywhere you travel. The StanbyMe Go is available for preorder only on later this month for $1,000, and units are expected to ship before the end of the month. If you're among the preorder customers, LG will also throw in a free LG Xboom 360 Bluetooth speaker, which it claims is a $300 value.

"Content viewing is no longer confined to the living room or even the home, but until now, consumers have had to sacrifice screen size in favor of portability," said David Park, LG's head of HE product marketing in a press release. "LG StanbyME Go makes the full-scale viewing experience travel-friendly and offers a versatile option for streaming, listening, remote working, and more."

Hisense kicks off its U8K mini-LED TV availability with deep discounts

Why wait for a new product to go on sale when you grab a huge discount on day one? That's clearly the thinking behind Hisense's retail launch of its 2023 U8K mini-LED 4K TV, which arrives in stores today. The flagship TV is available in 55-, 65-, and 75-inch screen sizes. Normally, these are priced at $1,300, $1,700, and $2,300 respectively, but for a limited time, Hisense has dramatically reduced all three, which are currently at $800, $1,100, and $1,600.

U8K is the company's flagship TV and marries the impressive benefits of quantum dots with the precise brightness control of mini-LED backlighting. The U8K offers Hisense's best and brightest picture quality -- that is, until (and if) Hisense releases the UX TV it teased at CES 2023. And it's loaded with features that will make it a strong contender if you're looking for a great TV without spending a fortune.

Hisense’s mini-LED U6K TV arrives, starting at $500
Hisense U6K mini-LED TV.

At CES 2023, Hisense promised to bring the U6K mini-LED 4K TV to buyers for under $500. And while it didn't quite make good on that exact wording, we're still impressed that the U6K is now here and available for exactly $500 in the 55-inch screen size. It's available right now at Amazon and at Best Buy, along with the 65-inch ($650), and 75-inch ($848) models.

To put Hisense's achievement in perspective, TCL's most affordable mini-LED TV is the 65-inch QM8, which sells for $1,298.
