Just in time for March Madness, Best Buy  has a host of TVs on sale this week. Even if you don't care about college basketball and haven't filled out a bracket, we are less than a month away from the final season of Game of Thrones, which is as good an excuse as any for a TV upgrade. 

Here are the best Best Buy deals on TV right now. (You can also save on Apple's new iPads at Best Buy, which is offering a rare deal for preorders.) Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.

This story was originally published on March 22. Products no longer on sale have been removed; products listed below are still on sale as of March 24 at 7:07 a.m. PT.

4K at 50 inches or less

If you can't quite afford the amazing TCL 6-series TV (on sale at Best Buy for $550 to $800), stepping down the TCL line will save you money -- albeit with compromises on picture quality. This 49-incher gets its smarts by way of Roku TV and includes 4K and HDR. CNET called it "an excellent choice for budget buyers focused on streaming and simplicity."

This entry-level Samsung LED TV serves up a 50-inch screen with 4K and HDR.

4K at 75 inches

The biggest version of CNET's favorite bang-for-the-buck TV is on sale for the first time, $300 less than its original selling price. In our review of the 65-inch version we saw excellent image quality and loved the built-in Roku streaming. 

LG OLED deals

If you want the best picture quality, bar none, you'll want to step up to an LG OLED. These 2018 models are still pricey, but they cost a lot less than the 2019 versions. Our experts don't expect the newer sets to offer a big step up in picture, so you're safe buying a 2018 model now.

At $1,000 less than the 55-inch 2019 C9, LG's least expensive 2018 OLED TV is now even less expensive. This 55-inch model serves up a 4K resolution, and CNET Reviews found the B8 series "delivers perfect black levels, superb uniformity, wide viewing angles, accurate color and a great bright-room picture."

Priced at $1,200 less than the 65-inch 2019 C9, the C8 series has processing that gives you slightly better image quality than the B8. This 55-inch model is the smallest panel in the series but still delivers a 4K resolution. CNET's resident TV expert, David Katzmaier said, "LG's C8 OLED TV sets the standard against which all high-end TVs will be judged."

LG's 2019 OLED and LCD TVs get 8K, Alexa and more
