How to choose a TV for March Madness

Big-screen televisions were considered a luxury not long ago, but as TV panels have grown slimmer, cheaper, and much more advanced over the years, long gone are the days when you had to pay an arm and a leg for anything bigger than 40 inches. Ultra HD 4K resolutions and built-in streaming capabilities are also ubiquitous now, so you don’t have to search far and wide if you’re on the hunt for cheap TVs for March Madness.

You’ve got a ton of options below $1,000, including some super-cheap televisions for as little as around $300 (maybe even a little less depending on size). Don’t expect bells and whistles like QLED panels, but if all you need is a solid 4K TV with integrated streaming capabilities, there are plenty to choose from. TCL, Vizio, Hisense, Toshiba, and Insignia are good brands to look for in the sub-$600 range. But bigger brand names like Samsung, LG, and Sony also offer some good 4K smart TVs for less than a grand, so keep your eyes peeled for those when shopping for March Madness TV deals.

If you’ve got a little more cash to burn, you may want to consider upgrading from a standard LED TV to one with an OLED or QLED panel. These are newer technologies that create a brighter, more color-vibrant picture with more consistent edge-to-edge lighting and better dynamic contrast than standard LED panels. They are more expensive than LED TVs (with OLED being the most costly of the three), so you can usually expect to pay more than a grand for these depending on size. That said, QLED TVs have been coming down in price lately with some good sub-$1,000 offerings popping up. It’s not a bad idea to use these March Madness TV deals as an excuse to upgrade.

Size is also an important consideration and will certainly affect the price — bigger TVs are always going to be more expensive — but before you run off and grab a new TV that’s the same size as your old one, measure the space you want to put your television in. Newer TVs are slimmer and lighter than ever so you might want to size up. Remember that TV display sizes are also measured diagonally across the front from corner to corner (e.g. a 50-inch TV is not 50 inches wide across the bottom).

One final note regarding size: Although 4K TVs are standard nowadays, some smaller TVs in the sub-43-inch size category often still feature 1080p Full HD resolutions. If you’re specifically looking for a 4K television while shopping for cheap TVs for March Madness, then double-check this before you buy. Still need some help?
