The future looks bright for those who are looking to nab a great TV in 2023 at a substantial discount. Although a fresh slate of new models was announced at CES 2023, it might be a while until any of those arrive and receive any significant discounts. However, you don’t have to wait to land a great deal on a mid- or high-end TV from LG, TCL, Hisense, or Amazon’s own Fire TV brand, as many of the flagship models from last year are currently selling for hundreds of dollars less than their original list price.
Right now, there are a number of discounted 4K TVs to choose from, spanning a wide variety of prices, size configurations, and feature sets. Whether you want a secondary TV for the bedroom or a high-end OLED that’s built for a cinema-like experience, we’ve picked out the best TV deals across some common categories.

The best 4K TV deals for most people
TCL 6-Series Mini LED
The TCL 6-Series R646 model has a Mini LED QLED panel with HDR10 Plus support and 4K gaming at 120Hz via HDMI 2.1 as well as hands-free Google Assistant voice commands and the Google TV interface that offers all major streaming apps. It’s a good option if you are looking to balance price and performance, and the 55-inch model is currently on sale at Best Buy and Amazon for $599.99 ($50 off), which is the lowest price on the popular 6-Series model. However, if you’re lucky enough to have a Best Buy nearby with local inventory on the bigger version, you can get an additional 10 inches of screen for an extra $100, as the 65-inch model is selling for just $699.99 at Best Buy on clearance. Read our TCL 6-Series Google TV review.
The Hisense U8H is another great value for a moderately priced Mini LED 4K TV. The TV can render some impressive peak levels of brightness and offers up to 120Hz for your gaming needs; it also supports HDMI 2.1 on two of its four ports. Plus, it supports Google TV. All of this normally starts at $1,099.99, but the 55-inch model can now be had for $698 ($400 off) at Amazon or $699.99 at Best Buy. Also, the 65-inch Hisense U8H is selling for $998 (about $400 off) at Amazon and Walmart and $999.99 at Best Buy.
While we haven’t officially reviewed the Hisense U8H, our own TV reviewer, Chris Welch, liked it enough to buy one for himself, and if that’s not a real recommendation, I don’t know what is.
LG’s UP7300PUC isn’t blessed with a memorable name, but the 75-inch 4K LED TV offers a lot of bang for your buck. We haven’t personally tested this model, but its features and size are impressive for $579.99, its current price at Best Buy. It has two HDMI inputs (one of which is eARC), an optical audio port, and an ethernet port. It comes with LG’s webOS software built in, too, which grants you access to all of the major streaming apps plus many others. It’s easy to find other 60Hz smart 4K TVs on sale, but its other impressive aspects — namely its size and price — aren’t so common.
The best 4K TV deals for those on a budget
Amazon Fire TV Omni (2021)
Surprisingly, many of our choices for budget TVs, like the TCL 4-Series, are not discounted right now. However, the older 2021 model of the Amazon Fire TV Omni, the precursor to the newer QLED version, is seeing some solid sales.
Amazon is discounting the 55-inch Fire TV Omni to $469.99 ($80 off) while the 65-inch version is $599.99 ($160 off). Lastly, the bigger 75-inch model gets the biggest discount at Amazon, as it’s currently $799.99 ($250 off).
The 2021 Fire TV Omni didn’t wow us with its picture quality, but its aggressive pricing and deep Alexa integration, which allows for voice control even when it’s turned off, helped make up for that a bit. If you’re on a budget and aren’t allergic to Amazon pushing its own content, the Omni, at these prices, is worth a look.

The best deals on 4K TVs for the PS5 and Xbox Series X
Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X can play 4K games with HDR at up to 120 frames per second. So, naturally, if you don’t have a TV that takes full advantage of your console, it might be time to upgrade to one of the models below. Note that, for the best experience, you’ll want a TV that supports HDMI 2.1.
LG C2 OLEDs
If you’re looking for an impressive TV, we recommend turning your attention to LG’s 2022 C2 model. The 4K TV touts support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync variable refresh rate tech along with a 120Hz refresh rate and low input lag. It also boasts a settings pane dubbed “Game Optimizer,” which conveniently brings together a host of game-centric settings — refresh rate, latency, etc. — for quicker access.
One of the best values right now is on the LG C2 48-inch model for $946.99 ($350 off MSRP) at B&H Photo and BuyDig — the latter of which also includes $70 worth of Visa gift cards plus a four-year extended warranty with your purchase. That price on the 48-inch is actually better than what you can currently find on the smaller 42-inch model.
If you want to go a bit bigger, BuyDig also has the 55-inch version for $1,296.99 ($300 off) and the 65-inch version for $1,696.99 ($800 off). These come with four-year warranties and additional $120 and $170 Visa gift cards, respectively.
LG’s QNED Mini LED TV
OLED prices aren’t for everyone. If you want something that’ll still look amazing, LG’s Class 83 Series QNED Mini LED lineup offers many of the same perks for less. The Mini LED backlighting allows for better contrast, more brightness, dynamic HDR, and improved color accuracy over LG’s previous LCD TVs. Crucially for gamers, they also have HDMI 2.1 ports with 120Hz support at 4K resolution.
The 65-inch model, which has webOS for built-in streaming apps, is currently discounted to $999.99 at Best Buy. This is $700 off its original price, which is quite the discount. However, if you have the space and budget for going even bigger, the 75-inch version is $1,499.99 ($1,000 off) at Best Buy.
