If you've been thinking about making a TV upgrade, now is a good time to put those wishful thoughts into action. Whether shopping for yourself or looking to go big at the last minute for Father's Day, there are some tempting TV deals out there.
For dads reading this, you've got the perfect route to a new TV -- tell the family they need not bother showering you with gifts because you would be perfectly happy to treat yourself to a new TV. (Part 2 of this plan could then be you reclining comfortably on the couch and watching the US Open at Pebble Beach over the weekend on your new-and-improved TV.)
Yes, most of these are 2018 models, but don't worry: You're getting a much better deal, and many of the newer models have only incremental picture quality improvements.
Walmart claims this model has an MSRP of $700, but that can't be true. No one in their right mind is paying $700 for a 50-inch TV, 4K or no. That said, $260 is a great price for this 50-inch 4K Roku TV. It's $20 cheaper than an equivalent .
The V Series is Vizio's new budget line, and this 50-inch model gives you 4K resolution for only $300. (No, you won't really be able to see the difference versus 1080p on most content at this screen size, but your Xbox or PS4 games may look sharper.) This smart TV lets you stream shows from Netflix and other services, and it has Chromecast built in.
