Best Buy Prime Day deals 2020

It’s easy to get lost in all of the amazing Prime Day deals right now, but if you’re looking at the Prime Day 4K TV deals, we strongly suggest you take moment to check out this Sony: You can buy the Sony A8H OLED 4K TV in either 55- or 65-inch sizes for $1,000 less than their regular prices. That’s not just a huge discount on a Sony OLED TV, it’s currently the best deal on any OLED TV, period.

55-inch Sony A8H OLED 4K TV — $1300, was $2300:

65-inch Sony A8H OLED 4K TV — $1800, was $2800:

What makes the Sony A8H 4K HDR OLED TV so special? First off, it’s an OLED TV. OLED TVs offer unparalleled black levels and contrast because their screens are made of self-emissive OLED pixels. Each pixel is individually illuminated, so when it’s turned off, it’s as black as black can get. No QLED TV can match it.

Secondly, it’s got Sony’s picture processing technology, which is currently the very best you can get. So while it’s true that the A8H uses the same OLED panel as LG’s CX Series, Sony is able to produce images that have a greater amount of detail, particularly in very dark scenes.

We love LG’s CX Series — in fact, it’s currently our pick for best overall TV — but if you’re primarily into watching movies and TV shows (as opposed to gaming) we think the Sony A8H is a better choice.

Along with absolutely stunning picture quality, you get support for Dolby Vision and HDR 10, along with Dolby Atmos for immersive surround sound. You wouldn’t think that a TV — especially a flat-screen — could produce decent sound but this is yet another area of strength. No, it can’t replace a dedicated soundbar or home theater system, but it’s far better than most similarly priced TVs.

With Android TV running the show, you get access to a wide variety of streaming services, plus Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. Even better, Sony also throws in Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit technologies, making this TV totally future-proofed for smart home applications.

When it comes to deals on 4K TVs this Prime Day, getting a $1,000 of a Sony A8H 4K HDR OLED TV is as close to a no-brainer as it gets. Grab this deal before it’s gone!

YouTube TV did 4K sports right — so maybe it’s time to cancel it
World Cup in 4K on YouTube TV.

Let us stipulate a few things: When it comes to video, higher resolution is better. Sure, there are diminishing returns — I wouldn't go out and buy an 8K television just yet. But going from 720p to 1080p is a huge leap in quality. Maybe a little less so when you go from 1080p to 4K, but that's also very much going to depend on your circumstances — television size, what room you're in, etc.

And one more stipulation: 4K for World Cup 2022 was pretty much a necessity. If you've ever watched live sports in 4K, you probably already knew that. FuboTV has had some live sports for years now, and YouTube TV — which is the most popular live service in the U.S., and more than five times larger than FuboTV with more than 5 million subscribers at last count — has had it as an option since the summer of 2021. You also could watch in 4K via the Fox Sports app, provided that you already had a subscription to a cable, satellite, or streaming service.
