Is Hulu’s time to shine again?
If there’s one thing you can count on when it comes to Black Friday TV items, it’s it Hulu He dominates this particular scene.
The likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, and HBO Max might be it The best streaming services Around — depending on who you talk to — but, every year, Hulu becomes the talk of broadcasting town. why? Because there Always great Hulu black friday deal to cast your eyes.
In 2021, a 12-month ad-based Hulu subscription was available for under $12. You read that right: less. From. $12. That equates to $0.99 per month – a whopping savings of $72 over the usual annual subscription. Could we see a similarly large price drop in 2022? It hasn’t happened yet, but we hope to see the same thing this time around.
Perfect TVs for your PS5 or Xbox Series X
If you’re among the huge number of people with a next-gen console (or are getting one this holiday season) and don’t yet have a TV with 4K 120Hz variable refresh rate support, you’re not getting The full power of what the new machines are capable of.
4K 120Hz means everything can look ultra-smooth thanks to displaying twice as many frames per second as regular TVs, while VRR means games can push graphical effects even further without hurting how smooth gameplay is.
Here are some of the great deals available right now on TVs that support these features.
6 of the best big screen deals
If you want to go really big this Black Friday, take a look at these deals below. We picked one 70-inch, three 75-inch sets, a massive 77-inch OLED TV, and a giant 86-inch LG monitor — all of which also included huge price cuts from $200 to $800.
Quality varies as you’d expect—a $500 TCL set will never compare to a $2,500 LG OLED—but every one of these is a bargain in its class.
Big discounts on LG OLED TVs
OLED TVs are usually much more expensive than LED (or QLED) sets, but prices are coming down and there are now a few options under the $1,000 level.
for example LG A2 is only $569.99 at Best Buy Now – a whopping $730 off its regular price and the cheapest price we’ve ever seen!
Amazon has 42-inch LG C2 at just $896, which is a $100 less savings, but then again this is our favorite TV on the planet. And if you want a bigger screen without adding much to the price, then go for it The 55-inch LG B2 is $996 at Walmart.
These prices may drop further as the week goes on, but we can’t guarantee that. It certainly seems unlikely that the A2 will ever get any cheaper – it’s an incredible bargain.
Get a 65-inch 4K TV for $500 off!
We’re sure to see plenty of great deals on great 4K TVs this Black Friday, but we suspect many will be better than this Best Buy deal on the Hisense U8H.
First off, this is a really good TV even at full price – we gave it 4/5 stars in our area Hisense U8H review We were full of praise for its high brightness, strong blacks, rich colors, and gaming-friendly features. But best of all, it’s not full price right now: It’s a 37% discount, which saves you $500 and brings it down to $899. Don’t miss this.
The cheapest TV on Amazon – is it any good?
Amazon’s Black Friday TV deals seem to be getting cheaper and cheaper every year, to the point where you can literally buy a smart screen for under $100 right now. They tend to be the cheapest of brand or private label displays, but we’re always surprised at just how cheap the retailer is for Black Friday.
We haven’t reviewed this here at TechRadar, but we can give you our honest opinion, based on the fact that we review dozens of TVs annually.
So, our initial impressions are that this show is small size (Literally like the size of a computer screen) but it really stands out for the money. The biggest pro of this monitor is that it has Amazon Fire TV built right in, so you don’t have to pair it with a Fire TV Stick or equivalent for full access to the best streaming services or compatibility with Echo devices. It’ll work basically out of the box and have you streaming Amazon Video or Netflix in no time – and it’s small enough to fit on almost any desk or table top.
What we don’t like is the 720p resolution. For a display in 2022 — even one that measures 24 inches — it’s incredibly small. The 32-inch version for $99 has the same 720p resolution as well, which will look even worse on a slightly larger screen size.
For our money, if you can afford it, we’d recommend picking up a slightly larger screen like this one:
This 43-inch Amazon-branded monitor has the same easy-to-use Smart Fire-TV features as the cheap Insignia but has vastly improved 4K resolution. It also supports HDR 10, HLG, and Dolby Digital Plus for better picture quality overall.
Samsung Black Friday TV deals live
Shopping for a premium screen? Don’t miss out on the official Samsung Store this week. This seller has previously We’re posting a bunch of official Black Friday TV deals and we’re seeing record prices across the board on some of the best TVs money can buy right now. Here are a few of our favorite deals of the day:
A quick overview of our recommended TV retailers…
There are a ton of Black Friday deals already available this year, with TVs in particular being an area of intense competition between the big names.
While we’ll round up all the highlights here, I thought I’d quickly give a review of our recommended retailers so you know what to look for.
Amazon and Walmart – good for cheap smart TVs
We recommend both Amazon and Walmart as great retailers if you’re on a bigger budget this Black Friday. Both widely stock smaller screen sizes for under $99 — many of which are their own brand options with built-in streaming features.
These screens aren’t exactly cutting-edge and, as you can imagine, lack the bells and whistles of most $500-plus displays, but they’ll get you watching Netflix or Amazon Video on a budget and they’ll be easy to set up.
In particular, look out for Amazon’s Fire TVs, which are essentially branded versions of the usual TCL and Insignia displays you’d see in the sub-$500 price range.
Best Buy & Samsung – Good for premium TVs
Best Buy’s wide range of Black Friday TV deals includes some pretty big savings on high-quality screens from top brands like LG and Sony. In general, you won’t find cheaper prices anywhere else, so it’s worth signing up for this retailer if you have the budget for something like the LG C2 OLED — which is our current TV of choice here at TechRadar.
Samsung itself is a great retailer if you have about $500 to $1,000 to spend on something decent but not too expensive. The range of premium QLED screens of this brand is generally in the middle of this budget range and the official store is offering the lowest prices all year round at the moment.
Snap Up Insignia 2022 32 Inch Smart TV – Because it’s 44% off!
Want a TV deal under $100 this Black Friday? We got you. This is the 2022 model that was $179.99 BUT Now $99.99 (Opens in a new tab) – A whopping $80 off on Amazon.
The 24-inch model is down, too, to $79.99 (from $89.99, an 11% savings) and we told you that earlier, but 32 inches of screen real estate for just $20 more warrants its own share, we think you’ll agree…
It’s not the Insignia mode we tested, but we should note that 1080p is HD TV’s most widely used format right now (often known as Full HD), exceeding 720p—and this TV only has 720p resolution, aka standard HD.
For clarity: 4K (Ultra HD) is a newer, higher-resolution format than 1080p. But on a smaller screen like this 32-inch, you’ll need eagle’s eyesight to notice what a difference all those pixels will make to the state of the 65-inch screen they have to shine on.
Our advice? It’s a great little bargain for a guest bedroom before the holiday season…
4K Vizio for under $300
Sticking to the cheap kits, Vizio’s V-Series models are among the ones we recommend keeping an eye on this Black Friday, and this deal is on 43-inch Vizio V-Series TV at Walmart for only $268 is a great example.
Although the V series is a budget line, these 4K TVs are incredibly feature-packed, offering Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ high dynamic range support, full-array LED backlighting, Bluetooth headphone output for private listening, and a remote control. audio-enabled remote, and a full three HDMI 2.1 ports. Definitely worth a look if you’re on a budget.
Big screens on a budget
Over the past few years, big screen TVs have gotten cheaper and cheaper, and we’re now at a point where we have absolutely great options that don’t break the bank. Here are some of the great options we’ve discovered at Best Buy.
This first choice is for the ultra-affordable Insignia monitor—which just happens to be on sale right now at the retailer. What we love about this is that not only do you get a decent sized screen but one of the best streaming platforms in the form of Fire OS combined. Top this off with an inexpensive smart speaker from Amazon (like the Echo Dot for $14.99) is a great way to start setting up your smart home on a budget.
This second premium Black Friday TV deal at Best Buy is a little more expensive, but it’s a good value if you want a monitor with a decent screen size.
The TU690T monitor has a solid set of features for the money, with a very fast processor for upgrading the resolution. Sure, it’ll lack the brightness of Samsung’s well-known QLED screens (it’s an LED screen), but it comes at a fraction of the price and gives you a full suite of smart TV functions to boot. Definitely worth checking out with close to $300.
