March Madness TV sales are offering epic price cuts on today's best TVs. While it's too late to have a TV delivered in time for the final, there's still plenty of time to take advantage of these savings. From Samsung to Amazon, retailers are slashing the price of premium TVs, budget TVs, and everything in between. 

If you're on the lookout for a big-screen TV, you'll find some of the best March Madness TV sales at Samsung. The retailer has its 4K QLED TVs on sale starting from $499. The sale includes mid-tier models and premium models like the Samsung QN90A which is up to $500 off

Alternatively, Amazon is offering smart TVs from $119. While Amazon's sale has plenty of deals on 1080p sets, we recommend purchasing a 4K TV as the technology is now as cheap as buying a 1080p TV. Just remember that the Big Ten and Big East college basketball tournaments will be streamed in 4K, but it's unclear if the March Madness games will be in 4K at this point. (They weren't in 4K last year). 

Either way, make sure to follow our TV deals coverage for discounts on all-size TVs. And once you get your new TV, here's how to watch March Madness online
