Early March Madness TV deals

TV sale: deals from $74 @ Best Buy
Want a new TV, but don't have a big budget? Best Buy has smart TVs on sale for as low as $74. Keep in mind, the cheap TVs tend to be smaller, 1080p models (which are more suitable for a children's room or guest room). However, the sale also includes 4K sets in the 50-inch to 55-inch range. These are among the cheapest TVs we've seen from Best Buy outside of a major holiday. By comparison, Amazon is offering a similar sale with prices from $74.

The TCL Q6 4K QLED TV is a budget TV with plenty of great features. In our TCL Q6 4K QLED TV review we called it a smart mid-tier pick for the price-conscious customer. It offers Dolby Vision/HDR10+/HDR10/HLG support, DTS Virtual: X audio, built-in Chromecast, and Amazon Alexa/Google Assistant compatibility. Although the display is just 60Hz natively, it should still be suitable for most sports fans. You also get Dolby Atmos and eARC support.

The Roku Plus Series is an outstanding value. In our Roku Plus Series 4K QLED TV review, we said it offers a great smart interface, HDR color, and excellent sound at an affordable price.
