Do you really need an 8K TV? Many of today’s cheap 4K TVs will offer plenty of resolution at a much lower price. But if you want the best TV and the most beautiful screen in all the land, 8K can be pretty tempting.
While there isn’t all that much 8K content out there right now, it’s only a matter of time before more movies, sports broadcasts, and video games catch up. These televisions do come at a very high price point though, so you should probably wait for Black Friday deals and Prime Day sales for a deeper discount.
If you can’t wait to pick up a new TV, however, Best Buy is offering some decent discounts ahead of its own early Black Friday sale.

When is the best time to buy a TV in 2020?
Whether you’re shopping online at Amazon, Walmart, or Best Buy, there are always deals going on. So if you’re in desperate need of a new TV, there’s never really a wrong time to buy. With technology advancing at such a rapid pace, many of the 4K TVs under $500 you see on the market are actually pretty good. That being said, there are a few times a year where you can find the lowest prices possible.
Amazon Prime Day
Though Prime Day normally begins in July, it is instead happening on October 13 and 14 this year. Historically, Amazon’s day of deals has been an excellent time to find discounts on brands like TCL, Toshiba, and LG. Since they are usually promoting their own smart devices, it’s a good time to snag a Fire TV for cheap.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday
These are your more traditional buying holidays, and arguably the absolute best time to buy any brand of TV. Considering Black Friday and Cyber Monday have pretty much melded into one super buying holiday at this point, it’s safe to assume the best TV discounts on OLED, QLED, and LEDs will arrive on November 27 and continue through the following week.
