The 2023 NCAA tournament is now underway and March Madness TV sales have never been better. Retailers are offering epic price cuts on 4K TVs of all sizes.
We've been covering March Madness TV sales for over a decade, so we know how to spot a terrific deal from an everyday price disguised as a deal. Currently, we're seeing some aggressive TV deals from the likes of Amazon and Best Buy. Amazon, for instance, has smart TVs on sale from $89. The sale includes many smaller screens, but also some newer, larger sets from LG and TCL.
If you want to go premium, Best Buy has 4K OLED TVs on sale from $599. The sale includes the entry-level LG A2, which is coming in and out of stock, but is just $30 shy of its lowest price ever. One thing to keep in mind is that the NCAA Final will be played on Monday, April 3. So if you want a TV in time for the game, you'll need to opt for next-day shipping or in-store pickup. Otherwise, your TV may not arrive on time.
