Update November 5: This deal is out of stock online but Walmart says to "check availability nearby" at its stores. Also see other Black Friday TV deals

Black Friday deals are in full swing, with Walmart's Deals for Days event offering some of the best bargains of the year weeks before the big event. And the hottest sale of the day is this 55-inch TCL 4K Roku TV selling for an astonishingly low $228 at Walmart (opens in new tab).

The TCL 55-inch Roku TV (55S21) isn't part of the usual 4-Series and 5-Series model lines, but there's still a lot to love, from the Roku smart TV platform, which has thousands of movies and shows available for streaming, along with hundreds of apps and services, to the 55-inch display, which boasts 4K Ultra HD resolution and High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for better color and brightness.

The TCL 55-inch Roku TV (55S21) is a 4K smart TV with an unbeatable price, and it's only at Walmart. It offers HDR support, four HDMI ports, and has our favorite streaming platform baked right in. 

This Black Friday TV deal features four HDMI ports, dual-band Wi-Fi for effortless setup, and works with Siri, Alexa, and Hey Google for voice control when paired with a smart speaker or other device.

Though not a part of TCL's standard offerings – it looks like a unique model made just for Walmart's sales event – there's no denying the quality behind the TCL name, and the Roku TV platform is consistently one of the best, thanks to a straightforward menu design and easy navigation.

But sharp-eyed buyers may notice what's not listed above. It doesn't have mini-LED, the hallmark of TCL's top model, the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635), or even QLED, which you'd get on the TCL 5-Series Roku TV (S535).  

But let's be honest, any 55-inch 4K smart TV that sells for under $300 is a steal. Be sure to check out all the latest Black Friday TV deals to save big on all the major brands in all sizes.

    I was thinking the same thing this morning when I saw the TG article, clicked through and no Walmart in my town or anywhere remotely close had one.
    Then, on a whim, I checked this afternoon. Puportedly, I can pick up the ONE available unit tomorrow a.m. after 10.
    We shall see...

    Happened to be in my local Wally-World this evening. Person in line ahead of me had one of these in his shopping cart. No idea what he paid for it (didn't ask), but was probably a good deal for him.

    I bought one Saturday afternoon at the Wal-Mart in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Well packaged. The video and audio quality are both surprising for $228. Certainly more than adequate and better than some more expensive ones I've seen.
