If you’re a savvy tech shopper, you can set your watch to the annual cadence of TV deals. There are the big ones, like Black Friday and the Super Bowl, and then smatterings around and in-between with Memorial Day, Labor Day, and some others. Amazon Prime Day has become another notable TV shopping holiday, with its somewhat annual cadence and occasional date changes starting back in 2015. With Prime Day 2022 kicking off, it’s another great chance to get a new 4K TV or upgrade your existing one for something better, faster, and maybe even bigger.
Among all the Prime Day deals we’re covering here at The Verge (smart home tech, earbuds, phones, laptops, and much more), this is one of the biggest. There are TVs with OLED and Mini LED panels that offer excellent color quality as well as options with HDMI 2.1 and variable refresh rate (VRR) that are great for gaming. Below, we’ve rounded up the best TV deals you can take advantage of this Prime Day.
LG TV deals
- The LG C1 OLED, one of our go-to choices for gaming TVs, is on sale in various sizes from multiple retailers. The 48-inch C1 is discounted at Amazon to $796.99 and
Target to $799.99instead of $1,299.99, while the 65-inch model is also on sale at Best Buy for $1,699.99 instead of $1,899.99. In addition to a 120Hz refresh rate, the C1 supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa.
The LG UP7070 is discounted from $829.99 to $649.99 at Best Buy, one of the best prices we’ve seen for this 4K LED TV. It may not tick all the boxes when it comes to voice assistants and extra features, but it does include AirPlay 2 support for Apple users.
Sony TV deals
- Sony’s Bravia A9S OLED is down to $799.99 ($500 off) at Best Buy. This OLED supports a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR, and Dolby Vision. It also rounds out its smart functionality with support for both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. It’s an excellent value for a smaller OLED for a smaller space — or a massive gaming monitor, if you’re so inclined.
Samsung TV deals
Vizio TV deals
TCL TV deals
- The 65-inch version of TCL’s excellent 6-Series, which features Mini LED technology and runs Roku’s TV platform, is down to $999.99
$699.99at Amazon. We may not like this model as much as the refreshed one that runs Google TV, but the price of this particular model is even better than it was during Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
- Normally $399.99, TCL’s 43-inch 4-Series TV is on sale at Best Buy for $249.99. While its refresh rate is restricted to 60Hz, the 4-Series manages to provide a surprising amount of features for a relatively low price.
Fire TV deals
More TV and soundbar deals
- The 50-inch, HDR-ready Hisense 50U6HF QLED was released in May, and it’s currently available on Amazon for just $339.99 for Prime members. That’s $190 off the regular price of the Fire TV-equipped set and is a new low — even besting its earlier Prime Day sale.
- Toshiba‘s 43-inch C350, another modest TV that runs Amazon’s Fire TV smart interface, is on sale for Prime subscribers for $229.99 ($100 off) through Prime Day. It’s a basic TV, but it supports both 4K resolution and Dolby Vision HDR.
- Roku’s Streambar serves as both a soundbar and a 4K HDR streaming device and is $89. It’s originally priced at $129.99, though this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this discount.
- Likewise for Roku’s Streambar Pro, the larger combo sound bar and streamer, which is back down to its lowest price of $149 ($30 off). These are tidy options if you want a single device that offers improved sound over your TV speakers without a separate device for streaming.
