43-inch Toshiba 4K Fire TV — $250, was $350

Why Buy: 

  • Can be controlled by your voice using the Alexa Voice Remote or an Alexa device
  • An incredibly large selection of streaming content and works with Apple AirPlay
  • 4K Upscale Engine for showing Full HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution
  • Comes with a free three-month Apple TV+ subscription for new subscribers

If you’re looking for something a little smaller (and more affordable) than a massive, cinema-worthy television, this 43-inch Toshiba 4K Fire TV could be the answer to your prayers. It has HDR for extracting more detail and color from supported content and upscales HD content to 4K Ultra HD.

Plus, like the 50-inch Insignia 4K Fire TV below, it’s a Fire Edition TV, so it runs Amazon’s Fire TV smart software. If you’ve ever used an Amazon Fire TV Stick before, the experience will feel very familiar. There’s even an Alexa Voice Remote in the box to control the television using your voice.

50-inch Insignia 4K Fire TV — $300, was $450

Why Buy: 

  • Can be controlled by your voice using the Alexa Voice Remote or an Alexa device
  • An incredibly large selection of streaming content and works with Apple AirPlay
  • 4K Upscale Engine for showing Full HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution
  • HDR10 and DTS Studio Sound for a more immersive viewing experience

Best Buy has knocked $120 off this 50-inch Insignia 4K TV. What we love about this model is that it’s a Fire TV, so it has a Fire TV Stick 4K under the hood. It can be controlled using Amazon Alexa via the included Alexa Voice Remote and can access more than one million streamable movies and shows out the box.

Like most 4K TVs, this Insignia 4K Fire TV has a 4K Upscale Engine for showing HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution. This is done in real-time, as the material plays. It also has HDR10 for enhancing the color of a movie or show to make it look more realistic, and DTS Studio Sound for a more immersive viewing experience.

65-inch Vizio V-Series 4K TV — $500, was $600

Why Buy: 

  • SmartCast smart software for streaming service access out of the box
  • Share content from iPad, iPhone, or Mac via Apple AirPlay 2.0
  • Dolby Vision and HDR10+ for enhancing content
  • 4K Upscale Engine for showing Full HD content in 4K Ultra HD resolution

Out of all the 65-inch TV deals happening now, this 65-inch Vizio V-Series for $530 is the best value. The television runs Vizio’s own SmartCast smart software, which is a bit like having a Google Chromecast baked into the television, offering instant access to streaming services like Netflix.

  • 75-inch Vizio V-Series 4K TV: $850, was $900 — VIEW DEAL

Like all high-resolution 4K TVs worth buying, the Vizio V-Series has HDR on board (in this case, we’re looking at two standards: Dolby Vision and HDR10+) for making movies, shows, and live events appear more lifelike, and a 4K Upscale Engine for converting HD material into 4K Ultra HD in real time.

70-inch Samsung TU6985 4K TV — $600, was $750

The Samsung 70-inch Class 7 Series 4K TV in a living room.

Why Buy: 

  • 70-inch TV for a household name synonymous with quality for only $600
  • One-click access to all the leading streaming services including Disney+
  • 4K Upscale Engine for turning Full HD content into 4K Ultra HD
  • HDR for drawing more detail from the scene at hand

As we said before, Best Buy’s offer on this 70-inch Samsung TV tops the list of the best Black Friday TV deals. It’s (of course) a Smart TV, so it can access all the leading streaming services out of the box like Disney+ and has Samsung’s 4K Upscale Engine on board for showing HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution.

Our one gripe with the Samsung TU6985 is that it only has two HDMI slots on board, so you’ll want to invest in an HDMI splitter if you’re wanting to hook up a set-top box and other accessories, like a PS5. One of these will set you back around $30 — but that’s a small price to take home 70-inch TV for only $600.

70-inch LG NanoCell 75-Series 4K LED TV — $750, was $1,200

LG

Why Buy: 

  • Big, 70-inch screen size at an affordable price
  • Use your voice to control Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
  • Support for Apple AirPlay 2, HomeKit
  • Great gaming features

LG’s NanoCell TVs represent a great value, with the kind of color and contrast you’d normally find on more expensive models. The built-in WebOS software has been updated for a clean and simple look that makes it easy to access tons of streaming apps from big names like Netflix, HBO, Disney+, Apple TV, Hulu, and more.

If you own Bluetooth speakers, you can connect them to the NanoCell 75-Series for a quick and easy (and wireless) way to do surround sound without an A/V receiver or a dedicated soundbar. Gamers will appreciate features like auto low-latency mode and TruMotion 120, which improves the refresh rate for a much clearer picture while gaming.

55-inch Samsung The Frame 4K TV — $1,000, was $1,500

Why Buy: 

  • A television that doubles as a picture frame when it isn’t in use
  • Incredible, futuristic design that’ll blend into any room
  • Stunning QLED screen that’s perfect for movies and sports
  • 4K Upscale Engine for displaying HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution
  • Smart software to access streaming services like Disney+ out of the box

Is it a picture frame? Is it an original da Vinci? No, it’s Samsung’s The Frame TV. Designed to blend into the background and be used as a photo frame when it isn’t in use, The Frame is a television appealing to the most design-conscious of shoppers. An acquired taste, it’s one of the most innovative TVs on the shelves.

What’s fascinating about The Frame is it isn’t a gimmick. When it’s being used as a television, it has a stunning QLED screen, a high-end technology designed to rival the likes of the OLED TV above, delivering high brightness and fantastic contrast that’ll mark a massive step up from any standard LED television.

  • 75-inch Samsung The Frame 4K TV: $2,200, was $3,000 — VIEW DEAL

Because it’s a 4K TV, it’s also armed with Samsung’s trademark 4K Upscale Engine for showing HD content in 4K Ultra HD, HDR10+ for drawing more detail out of the scene at hand, and smart software to access streaming services like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix — when it isn’t displaying works of art while idle.

55-inch Vizio OLED 4K TV — $1,000, was $1,300

Why Buy: 

  • The cheapest, good OLED TV from a household brand worth buying
  • Incredible picture quality with support for four HDR standards
  • 120Hz refresh rate and HDMI 2.1 — ideal for the PS5 and Xbox Series X
  • Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast built-in, and top streaming services

OLED TVs sit at the head of the table, offering the best viewing angles, deepest blacks, and the best picture any television on the market has to offer, so it should come as no surprise our pick for the best TV is an OLED TV. This particular model we’re talking about now, the Vizio OLED, made our list of the best OLED TVs.

We know what you’re thinking: A 55-inch TV for $1,200? It better make dinner and clean up after. Well, it doesn’t do quite that but it does offer an incredible picture, with support for all of the main HDR flavors: Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG — more than any other OLED TV from a top brand that we’ve come across.

Also available: 65-inch Vizio OLED 4K TV: $1,500, was $1,800 — VIEW DEAL

The Vizio OLED 4K TV runs at 120Hz and has HDMI 2.1, so it’ll work well with both the PS5 and Xbox Series X. It also has a 4K Upscale Engine for showing HD content in a 4K Ultra HD resolution, and Vizio’s SmartCast interface for access to all the top streaming services. It also supports Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast.

65-inch Sony A80J OLED 4K TV — $1,800, was $2,300

Why Buy: 

  • The best picture quality in a 4K OLED TV thanks to Sony’s top-flight image processing
  • Google TV for tons of streaming apps and built-in content recommendations
  • Apple AirPlay, HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Google Chromecast built-in

This Sony A80J 4K OLED TV offers the best picture quality you can find. In fact, just about the only thing our reviewer could object to was the TV’s price. And at a regular price of $2,300, that’s understandable. But that’s also why this deal is so exceptional — you can buy the 65-inch A80J for the same price as the 65-inch LG C1 OLED TV — a rare deep discount on this awesome Sony TV.

The A80J is a dream come true for movie and TV show fanatics, with impeccable color accuracy and support for all major flavors of high-dynamic range (HDR), including Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG. And, surprisingly for a flat-screen TV, the built-in speakers sound really good all on their own — largely due to Sony’s unique technology that turns the entire TV screen into a speaker.

The only thing to keep in mind is that this model lacks support for the gaming enhancements of HDMI 2.1. You get HDMI eARC and 4K at 120Hz, but the A8H doesn’t offer variable refresh rate (VRR) or auto low-latency mode (ALLM), both of which are pretty important to PC and console gamers with the latest hardware. They may be added with a future firmware update, but if gaming isn’t a top priority, this TV will absolutely blow you away.
