With the exception of a few cutting-edge 8K models (which we suggest you stay away from for the time being), just about every TV on store shelves right now features 4K resolution. And that means there are tons of deals and discounts if you’re hoping to get your hands on a new ultra-HD TV for less. But with so many options, knowing which deals are a bargain can be a little challenging. Fortunately, CNET is here to help, and we’ve rounded up some of the best offers out there on top-rated models below. We’ll continue to update this page as deals come and go, so be sure to check back often for the best prices.
Best 4K TV deals
We named the LG C2 the best high-end TV for the money on the market in 2022, and right now you can snag this 55-inch model for its lowest price yet. It features a stunning 4K OLED display with Dolby Vision, and a fourth-gen A9 processor to automatically upscale content. It’s also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync and FreeSync Premium for optimized gaming, and it comes with Google Assistant and Alexa built in.

Vizio’s V-Series won our 2022 budget TV shootout by delivering better picture quality than the others, including the TCL 4-Series Roku TV above. We liked its Roku smart TV system better than Vizio’s SmartCast, however, so the one you choose comes down to your priorities. The 4-Series lacks the Dolby Vision, Bluetooth connectivity and AMD FreeSync with a variable refresh rate, all of which the Vizio offers.
At 86 inches, this LG QNED TV is the largest screen you’ll find on this list. It features a stunning 4K ultra-HD display with mini-LED backlighting and Quantum Dot technology for vivid colors and rich blacks. It also supports both Dolby Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos for a more immersive watch experience. It even comes equipped with a powerful fourth-gen A7 AI processor that automatically upscales your HD content to 4K. The remote has a built-in microphone for easy hands-free navigation.
The Fire TV 4 Series is definitely a basic 4K TV, but that doesn’t mean it should be dismissed out of hand. It landed a spot on our best budget TV list, which means it has a lot to offer.
There are some trade-offs when you opt for a budget set, but it might still be worth it at the much lower price, especially while it’s discounted by 36%. It lacks some higher-end specs like Dolby Vision and gaming features such as AMD FreeSync, but this TV does deliver a brilliantly bright image, which makes it one of the best pictures on any entry-level model, and it’s a great fit for those who are already using the Amazon ecosystem.

This 4K TV has excellent image quality thanks to the bright QLED screen that delivers realistic contrast. It has 4K upscaling, an anti-glare design, Dolby Atmos and object tracking sound and a built-in game hub.
What should you look for in a 4K TV deal?
With hundreds of different 4K TV deals from a variety of brands to choose from, it can be hard to know exactly what to be on the lookout for. The size of your space will likely dictate which 4K TV deals are appropriate for you and the number of devices you want to plug in will also rule out any 4K TVs with very few HDMI ports. Since most new TVs are smart these days, you’ll also want to consider which platform a 4K TV you’re eyeing up runs, such as Amazon’s Fire OS, Google TV or Roku, as well as any smart home integrations you’ll want to make the most off — like Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple’s HomeKit and AirPlay tech.
Price is a determining factor for a lot of folks, so scoring a steep 4K TV discount is never a bad thing. Often, TV-makers release new models each which can prompt previous-gen TVs to go on sale with large price cuts despite relatively minor changes, so it’s often worth considering a TV set from a year or two ago if you don’t need the cutting-edge tech.
When are the best 4K TV deals available?
Like most consumer electronics, the best 4K TV deals will be found around major sale events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday. These annual events offer some of the best prices of the year and see multiple retailers competing for shoppers’ cash, which is good news for your wallet. That’s not to say you can’t find a good 4K TV deal all year round, though. We keep tabs on TV pricing throughout the year and any surprise, out-of-season sales will be listed above.
Which retailers usually offer the best 4K TV deals?
When you think of nabbing a 4K TV deal, you should start at the big box retailers like Best Buy, Target and Walmart. These stores tend to offer some of the biggest sales on 4K TVs, both in store and online, with online-only retailers like Amazon often matching prices — especially during the fall sale season.
