Best Budget TV Deals Available Now

TCL 40-inch S325 1080p 2019 Roku TV | $20 off

Roku TV is one of the best smart platforms available, and it's one you can count on to always be as up-to-date as possible with the latest streaming content and newest apps. Plus, TCL makes some decent sets with Direct lit LED, plenty of HDMI ports, and 1080p resolutions. Has Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility for voice control.

What can you expect from a cheap TV? What should you look for? Well, first off there are a lot of ways you don't have to compromise. For example, you shouldn't settle for less than 4K resolution. At this point in the TV world, 4K is the default. You can find cheap 4K TVs for less than $250 in some cases. In the same vein, try and find HDR capable sets. Now, real HDR won't truly impact your image quality unless your TV can reach a peak brightness of 400 nits or more. However, just having the technology means you have a set that values image quality and color.

You also should look for smart functions. A smart platform like a Roku TV, webOS on LG, or Amazon's Fire TV opens up a lot of ways to use your TV. A built-in Chromecast means you can use your mobile device to stream your favorite shows. The ease of use cannot be understatated, and like 4K this is the sort of feature that has become standard for many TVs even if some are better at it than others.

Best Cheap TV Deals under 50"

The cheaper you go, the less likely you are to find some of those essential features like 4K. That's okay though because even the non-4K TVs still manage to cram as much as they can in there. For example, Amazon's Fire TVs can get as low as $80 but still come with smart features, including a remote that lets you control the TV with your voice.

Amazon Fire TVs as low as $120

Your options vary from 720p resolutions to 4K. Some have Alexa built in already and some come with a voice remote you can use to control them. The sizes go up to 50 inches, too, so even though these are super inexpensive they are still large enough for most rooms of the house.

What are you looking for in a cheap TV?

Obviously, you're looking at the price. That's the first thing you need to decide. How much money do you want to spend? But after that, think about what else you want from your TV, too. Where is it going to go? Is this a set for a kids room or a bedroom? How many features do you want? Does it need 4K? Should it focus on refresh rate because you want to use it for gaming? And what about a smart platform? If you're using your own media streaming device like a Roku streaming stick, you might not care too much about the TV's built-in platform. But even an inexpensive streaming device can support 4K content, so that might make resolution a higher priority for you.

When it comes to looking for good cheap TVs, you'll want to stick to the major retailers. Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and the other big names are really where you want to look because these are the places that just happen to have the lowest possible prices on big ticket items like TVs. Plus, keep an eye out for big sales. Black Friday is just around the corner, and in many cases it's already here. It's going to be a great time to buy a new TV, but watch out for "Black Friday models," which are TVs with flaws sold at a discount on Black Friday. And make sure you're really getting value out of the deal you're looking at.

When else should you be looking for low TV prices? Most TV manufacturers announce new lineups around the beginning of the year, using tech shows like CES in January to show off the new lineups. The new models then get released a couple months later around March or so. Things have been a little messy in 2020, but next year this will most likely be back on schedule. So that's the time you want to look for TV deals outside of the big shopping events mentioned above because new models mean the old models get heavily discounted.
