TVs and home theater systems on sale for BestBuy's Magnolia Anniversary event

  TVs and home theater systems on sale for BestBuy's Magnolia Anniversary event 4K and 8K TVs from the likes of Sony, Samsung and LG, along with home theater systems and a wall mount for your fancy new TV are on sale for Best Buy's Magnolia Anniversary event. The sale — which Best Buy positions as Black Friday prices — lasts until Oct. 20.4K and 8K TVs from the likes of Sony, Samsung and LG, along with home theater systems and a wall mount for your fancy new TV, are all discounted right now for Best Buy's Magnolia Anniversary sale. The sale lasts through Oct. 20.

The annual Black Friday madness is upon us, and the only way to keep your sanity is by distracting yourself with the latest episodes of The Crown, The Mandalorian, Rick and Morty and BoJack Horseman. Okay, a few of those you can watch on your phone or tablet, but if you're not watching The Mandalorian on the largest possible screen, you're cheating yourself. Fortunately, the largest possible screen is now amazingly affordable, as evidenced by some of the current pre-Black Friday deals available from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Amazon.

Samsung 70-inch 4K UHD Smart TV: $550

You save $250

First things first: This deal is available today only (though it may return on Black Friday) and while supplies last. Second thing: Holy moley, a 70-inch Samsung TV for $550! It has only two HDMI inputs, which is annoying, and no user reviews, which is unusual, but it still looks like an amazing buy -- and you can always haul it back to Best Buy if you're not happy.

Apple TV app is available on some Sony smart TVs

  Apple TV app is available on some Sony smart TVs When the redesigned Apple TV app arrived in May, it was compatible with Samsung smart TVs, as well as the expected Apple products. Apple promised that the app would eventually work on more platforms, and in the past weeks, it's arrived on Roku and Amazon's Fire TV Stick devices. Now, 9to5Mac reports that the Apple TV app is available on some Sony smart TVs. Because Sony uses Android TV, this marks another instance of Apple blending its tech with the Android platform. The added feature is available through a firmware update, which is being rolled out to newer TVs. Sony hasn't said which models will receive the update.

$550.00 AT BEST BUY

70-inch RCA Roku 4K TV (RTRU7027-US): $550

You save $350

Want built-in Roku instead of Samsung's OS? Check out this 70-incher from RCA. We haven't reviewed it, and this brand isn't exactly known for its picture quality. But it's a friggin' 70-inch 4K Roku TV for $550. Allowances can (and will) be made!

$549.00 AT WALMART

RCA 32-inch Class HD 720P Roku Smart LED TV (RTR3260-W): $100

You save $80

While CNET hasn't reviewed this model -- and expectations for a $100 TV aren't exactly high -- this 720p model has the Roku smart TV operating system (our favorite) and three HDMI inputs. Hard to complain about that feature set at this price if you're looking for a small TV for the kitchen or kids' room.

$100.00 AT WALMART

55-inch TCL 4-Series (55S425): $300 at Amazon

You save 50%

Featuring 4K HDR and Roku's great smart TV system built-in, the picture quality is no great shakes, but this price is good enough (the lowest this year, so far) that you can probably overlook it.

Costco’s Black Friday ad just leaked: Xbox, AirPods, Galaxy Note 10, laptop and TV deals

  Costco’s Black Friday ad just leaked: Xbox, AirPods, Galaxy Note 10, laptop and TV deals Some of the leading retailers out there have already kicked off early Black Friday deals, with Walmart already hosting a slew of exciting deals for buyers, which means the Black Friday ads are about to start leaking like crazy. In fact, we already have the first Black Friday catalog leak of the year for you, and it comes from Costco, just like last year. Costco will have plenty of early sales, with some of the deals contained in the catalog going live as soon as November 7th. Warehouses will be closed on Thanksgiving (November 28th), but sales will be available online.

$300.00 AT AMAZON

55-inch Vizio M-Series Quantum (M558-G1): $478 at Walmart

You save $50

The M-Series Quantum delivers excellent picture quality, with deep black levels, accurate color and very good 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone-friendly, with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.

Walmart also has the 50-inch model for $398, but it's the M7 series, which doesn't deliver quite the same level of picture quality as that M8. It's still a great price, however.

$478.00 AT WALMART

65-inch Vizio M-Series Quantum LED (M658-G1) $650 at Best Buy

You save $150

Those looking for a bigger screen can find some savings on the 65-inch version of the Vizio M Series Quantum, which brings quantum dot color to an incredibly affordable price. Normally $800, Best Buy is offering it now for $650.

65-inch Samsung Q70 series (QN65Q70R): $1,200

You save $200

Samsung dropped the prices on all of its QLED TVs for Black Friday, and the Q70 series is our favorite value of the bunch. It's the cheapest with full-array local dimming, the best feature for improving image quality. FALD-equipped TCL and Vizio models have similar image quality for hundreds less, but Samsung has a leg up in design.

Netflix is dropping support for older Samsung smart TVs in December

  Netflix is dropping support for older Samsung smart TVs in December If you have an older Samsung or Vizio smart TV, you may have noticed a message from Netflix pop up on your screen. This week, Netflix began notifying customers that it will no longer support Samsung smart TVs, circa 2010 and 2011, or Vizio smart TV more than four years old. It's also dropping support for first-generation Roku boxes. The changes go into effect December 2nd. The news isn't too surprising -- Netflix cannot support all hardware indefinitely -- but it is still a bummer. Samsung confirmed the change in a troubleshooting page, and Cord Cutters first reported that older Vizio and Roku devices will lose support.

65-inch LG OLED TV (65OLEDB9PUA): $2,000

You save $500

LG's traditional pre-Black Friday OLED TV price drop is on, and our favorite high-end TV for the money, the B9, gets a steep discount. OLED TVs produce better overall image quality than any LCD we've reviewed, including Samsung's QLED TVs. LG's 2019 versions also have more features than its previous OLED TVs, including Alexa built-in, Apple AirPlay 2 and more HDMI 2.1 extras, including eARC, Auto Game mode and Variable Refresh rate.

The C9 is also on sale, but it's a bit more expensive than the B9 for slightly better image quality. Your call.

55-inch Sony OLED TV (XBR-55A8G): $1,500

You save $400

We haven't reviewed this Sony but expect it to perform similarly to the LG B9: In a word: awesome. Just like the LG, this is the lowest price yet for a current-year OLED TV (the 65-inch Sony is also $2,000). Unlike the LG, Sony uses the screen to produce sound and offers Google's Android TV operating system.

Onn 50-inch 4K Ultra HD Roku TV: $148

You save $101

Wondering what's Onn? It's a new Walmart house brand, much like Insignia at Best Buy. And it's jumping out of the gate with a ridiculously good deal on a 50-inch 4K screen with built-in Roku. There's also a 40-inch model for just $98. Just one thing to keep in mind: Nearly all the initial ratings are from Walmart Spark reviewers, who received the TV for free in exchange for their feedback. Not saying you can't trust those reviews, merely that there may be some bias.

How to win Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2019

Samsung gets closer to building 'QD-OLED' TVs that rival LG's OLED .
While Samsung has become dominant in using OLED technology on mobile displays -- even Apple uses its screens for iPhones -- in TVs, the big name in OLED is its competitor, LG. LG's TVs have wowed testers with their ability to control light precisely because each pixel is self-illuminating, unlike the "QLED" branded quantum dot LCD tech Samsung relies on exclusively, which still puts LED backlights behind a filter. That could change soon,That could change soon, however, as Samsung announced in October that it's investing $11 billion by 2025 to build a plant capable of manufacturing true QLED TV screens that self-illuminate.
