The 8 Best TV Deals You Can Shop Before Black Friday—All Under $200
Shop our picks for the best TV deals you can buy now, including an LED television for only $87.
For many of us, the holiday season means snuggling up on the sofa and putting on a classic holiday movie to enjoy with family—an experience made even better by a high-definition television. Luckily, with the holidays comes the biggest shopping season of the year, and there is no better time than Black Friday to hunt for the best television deals.
Many televisions now come with high definition (HD), full high-definition (FHD), or 4K ultra high-definition (UHD) resolutions. These refer to the TV screen's number of pixels. In short, the higher the resolution, the better, sharper, and clearer the screen. HD TVs have 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, FHD provides 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and 4K UHD offers 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution, making it the sharpest of all screen specifications.
This year, we’re already seeing price cuts at retail giants like Walmart and Amazon. As expected, Amazon is offering significant price cuts on most-wished-for TVs such as Toshiba's 32-inch HD Smart LED TV with Amazon Fire TV and Insignia's 39-inch Full HD Smart LED TV with Amazon Fire TV, while Walmart is slashing prices on its best-selling Sceptre 32-inch Class HD LED TV and VIZIO's 24. You’ll find more brands and models available on both retailers’ websites, but we’ve gathered some of the best TV deals under $200, including options priced as low as $87.
This high-definition television from Sceptre is praised by shoppers for its low price, which is even lower thanks to Walmart's early Black Friday savings. Although it does not come with smart TV features, reviewers note its crisp, clear colors, and handy HDMI input and USB port.
With Amazon Fire TV built into this television, shoppers can enjoy channels and apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, and Starz. And its 24-inch screen is Alexa-compatible, meaning users can switch channels and search for titles using just their voice.
This 24-inch smart TV by VIZIO features Apple AirPlay 2 and a built-in Chromecast, so you can stream music, movies, or shows with ease. It also allows users to stream more than 150 channels via VIZIO WatchFree for no cost. The small smart TV also comes with voice control support for Siri, Google Assistant, and Amazon’s Alexa.
Another option with built-in Amazon Fire TV and Alexa capabilities, this 32-inch Toshiba TV can connect to smart devices via dual-band WiFi and three HDMI inputs. Reviewers also noted its easy setup and quality audio.
One of Amazon’s most highly-rated TVs, this Insignia 39-inch television brings viewers all the great features of a smart TV along with Amazon’s Fire TV experience. Shoppers praise its ease of use for switching between over-the-air antennas, DVRs, and built-in apps, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and YouTube.
Sceptre’s 4K ultra-high-definition resolution (UHD) TV is truly a steal at less than $200. While it doesn’t come with the features of a smart TV, it makes up for it with its fantastic color and high pixel count. Plus, the size is perfect for those seeking to upgrade from a computer to a larger screen for their gaming or streaming needs.
Although it’s not a UHD TV, this 43-inch TV from Toshiba comes close with its 1080-pixel full high-definition (FHD) display. It also provides viewers with smart TV features, including more than 500,000 streaming movies and TV episodes, plus the ability to switch channels via Alexa voice control.
The largest TV on our list, Sceptre’s 50-inch full high-definition TV guarantees you a crisp display that showcases all the colorful details of your favorite Christmas movie. Shoppers love it for its impressive picture quality and its easy setup, and at nearly 50% off, this TV is one of the best deals we’ve seen yet.
