Walmart’s Black Friday 4K TV deals have started, albeit 12 hours before Black Friday 2019 officially arrives — and with prices starting as low as $280 for a 50-inch Samsung, you aren’t going to want to miss them. So consider this your chance to bag one of the best Walmart Black Friday 4K TV deals before the feral bargain-hunting wolves catch wind of them first thing tomorrow.
Of course, with Walmart discounting everything from regular LED 4K TVs to souped-up OLED and QLED 4K TVs, it’s tough to know what’s deserving of your hard-earned cash. That’s where Digital Trends comes in. We tasked our expert team of reviewers with the all-important role of sifting through the hundreds of deals in the retailer’s catalog in search of the best offers.
Unsurprisingly, the amount they found was enough to sink a ship. So they took their search a step further. After they’d finished hunting down the finest offers, they turned their attention to Walmart’s rivals to make sure the prices it’s offering are the cheapest in town. What remains following this thorough investigation are the best Walmart Black Friday 4K TV deals for 2019.

Black Friday won’t kick off until a touch after midnight on November 29 — by definition, at least. You don’t have to wait until then to take home a fantastic 4K TV on the cheap, though. Walmart has already started its Black Friday 4K TV deals and with pricing locked in through the end of the main event, there’s no reason to not take advantage of them. The price won’t slip further.
What 4K TV deals to expect from Walmart on Black Friday 2019
Walmart has led the charge when it comes to 4K TV deals on Black Friday for as long as we can remember. With this in mind, we expect to see everything from Toshiba Fire TVs, TCL Roku TVs, and Vizio SmartCast TVs to LG and Sony OLED TVs and Samsung QLED TVs on sale for a fraction of their usual shelf price on Black Friday 2019 — if history is any indication, that is.
Suffice it to say, it will be the older models that should be treated to the most significant savings. Specifically, Walmart is expected to wipe the most off 4K TVs that launched in 2017 or earlier, followed by those in 2018 (the most respected of which should headline the bonanza in hour-long flash sales), with models that hit the shelves in 2019 set to be reduced the least.
Luckily for you, we watch Walmart like a hawk day in, day out, so we know a thing or two about what it tends to do when it comes to shopping festivals. By analyzing what happened on not only Black Friday and Cyber Monday of yesteryear, but also Memorial Day, Boxing Day, 4th of July, and even Easter, we’re able to offer up some predictions of what 4K TVs will be on sale.
As if that wasn’t enough, Walmart has even confirmed some of the 4K TVs that it will be discounting come Black Friday 2019, as well as by how much. The highlight? A 65-inch Philips PFL5604/F7 4K TV for just $280, down $220. Other notable offers include a 55-inch Samsung 5-Series 4K TV for $330, down $50, and a 65-inch Vizio V-Series 4K TV for $400, down $130.
All is not as it seems, though. Walmart is the leading source of discounted 4K TVs in the whole of the United States, so it’s a tad strange that must-have models like the Samsung Q60R and Sony Master Series A9G are missing from the list when they’re on sale at rival Best Buy right now. Our point? It definitely has a killer deal or two up its sleeve it isn’t telling us about.
The size of the discounts its teasing just do not line up with what it has done on Black Friday and Cyber Monday — or Labor Day, Memorial Day, Prime Day, or even a regular Thursday — in the past. So don’t let this teaser leave a sour taste in your mouth. We’ve merely been thrown a curveball. Walmart definitely has something special in store for Black Friday 2019.
How to choose a 4K TV
So you’re looking for a 4K TV, huh? The first thing you’re going to want to do is set a limit. We aren’t talking about a budget, though. Rather, a size limit — measure the available space on the surface it’s going to reside (be it a table or even a wall). Be realistic, too. For instance, if there’s just about enough space for a 60-inch television, you should opt a 55-inch screen or smaller.
The next step is to take a look at the various features different manufacturers bring to the table and determine which could be of use. In a nutshell, TCL is best for streaming (it’s armed with Roku’s popular Roku OS smart software), Sony and Vizio excel when it comes to voice control, LG and Samsung are masters of ease of use and versatility, and Sony is king of picture quality.
