Best Black Friday TV and Home Theatre Deals

Sometimes the term “Black Friday” seems like a misnomer. A possible replacement might include “Televisions-On-Sale Friday.” Yes, this is one of the most popular times of the year to score a big-ticket electronics item for comparatively little dinero, but sorting through the white noise can be a little difficult. If you’re in the mood to update your home entertainment system before Aunt Gertude and Uncle Melville stop by, we have picked some of your most attractive options here.

Handpicked WIRED Black Friday Guides:

Television Deals

LG 55-inch Class 4K (2160P) Smart OLED TV – $1497 ($802 off)

Buy on Walmart, Amazon

LG’s OLED TVs are the ne plus ultra of television displays. OLED, or “organic light-emitting diode,” displays are considered the best display tech available, and until recently, you couldn’t purchase a television with it for under $4000. Now is your chance to own one for under $2000.

TCL 49-inch 4K Roku LED TV – $350 ($130 off)

Buy on Amazon

A lot of TV deals will float around throughout the holidays, and you probably can find a way to save another $50, but this TCL is a solid 49-inch 4K TV with built-in Roku (which you’ll want anyway), and it’s down to $350. It will be difficult to find many TVs that offer this size and feature set for the price.

Sony 55-inch 4K UHD X-series – $998 ($702 off)

Buy on Dell

Sony’s performance-minded X-series 4K UHD set is a whopping $700 off this holiday, making it a great buy for home theatre buffs and sports fans alike. Even though it’s not OLED, it still boasts solid contrast and dynamic range, making it a great value for under $1,000.

Vizio 55-inch 4K P55-E1 Smart XLED – $898 ($100 off)

Buy on Walmart

Vizio’s top-tier quality P-series sets don’t get discounts very often, and you can save $100 off the reasonable price of this 55-inch.

Samsung Electronics 65-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV – $1,298 ($902 off)

Buy on Amazon

Samsung’s rich, beautiful quantum-dot displays might be the future of television, but for now, their midrange offerings offer a very similar picture quality to the touted Q series and for, oh, say, a grand less.

LG 49-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV with HDR – $400 ($300 off)

Buy on Dell

This LG TV is a great deal for the price, and has LG’s fantastic WebOS interface.

Samsung Electronics 55-inch LED 4K UHD 6 Series Flat SmartTV – $498 ($200 off)

This is a great price for an entry-level Samsung set that has Samsung’s Tizen smart TV platform and excellent HD picture quality.

Home Theater Deals

Buy on Razer

Razer’s awesome soundbar and sub set pumps out quality sound without costing too much. It’s great for games, music, and movies alike and now you can save $50.

Polk Audio 5-1/4″ Bookshelf Speakers – $50 ($50 off)

Buy on Best Buy

Polk is known for excellent sound at a reasonable price, and never more so when it’s half off.

Roku Streaming Stick – $35 ($15 off)

Buy the 4K-Ready Roku Streaming Stick Plus for $50 ($20 off) on Amazon

Buy the HD-Ready Roku Streaming Stick for $32 ($18 off) on Amazon, Best Buy

If you don’t need 4K or an HDMI extension, the easy, simple Roku stick is the no-brainer solution for all your streaming needs. It offers an amazing variety of content through a number of different services, you can stream audio through your phone, and now it’s $15 off. If you do want 4K, the Streaming Stick Plus is also on sale.

Sonos Playbar – $600 ($100 off)

Date: Nov. 23-27

Buy Sonos Playbar for $600 ($100 off) on Sonos and Amazon

Buy Sonos Playbase for $600 ($100 off) on Sonos and Amazon

It would be a travesty to match a gorgeous OLED display with a bunch of clunky speakers. Sonos very rarely goes on sale, so now’s your chance to pick up a a sleek, low-profile soundbar from one of the top manufacturers of wireless sound systems for $100 off. If you prefer, Sonos is also discounting its Playbase by $100, as well, though we prefer the Playbar.

Sonos Surround Sound Speakers – ($25 – $100 off)

Date: Nov. 23-27

Buy Sonos One with Alexa for $175 ($25 off) on Sonos and Amazon

Buy Sonos Play:1 for $150 ($50 off) on Sonos and Amazon

If you’re buying a Sonos Playbar for your TV, we also recommend picking up the Sonos Sub and 2 smaller Sonos speakers to complete your surround sound setup. The Play:1 speakers work fine, but just know that they don’t have microphones, so they don’t have Alexa. This isn’t a big deal if they’re acting as extended speakers for your TV, though.
