This is the Early Access deal everyone is looking for today – it’s a 55-inch 4K Fire TV for just $112. It’s a breakthrough and it will be gone in seconds.
The deal isn’t live yet, but stay tuned all day.
Why is the TV so hot? Well, not only is the price unbelievable, but it has Fire TV and Alexa support built in, and it has decent specs. With solid HDR support, you can stream shows like House of the Dragon and Lord of the Rings in their highest quality, and you won’t break the bank for just $112.

Looking for a fairly cheap 4K TV today? Amazon’s 4 Series TVs start at $299. For a TV under $300, it’s a better deal than the Insignia models you’ll likely see around the same price, as it offers better specs and better performance.
Like the aforementioned Omni series, the 4 series comes with Fire TV and Alexa built in, and at 43 inches it shouldn’t take up too much space on your entertainment center.

For OLED aficionados, the LG C1 OLED is an incredible TV – and at $1,000 off the regular price, it’s one of the best Early Access TV deals happening today.
Why this OLED? The C1 is the epitome of a price-to-performance TV. It has a refresh rate of 120 Hz with several HDMI 2.1 ports to connect your consoles. It has a great processor to upscale HD video to 4K. It has a great smart platform, excellent smart home compatibility with both Alexa and Google Assistant and of course unbeatable contrast.
It’s the TV everyone wanted last year, and now it’s a $1,000 discounted sale.

Looking for something larger than 65 inches? Sony is selling its 77-inch Sony A80J OLED for $1,999 after a HUGE discount of $1,500 (normally $3,499).
It’s obviously bigger than the 65-inch C1 OLED, but we also like the Sony because it uses the Cognitive Processor XR which improves the sharpness of textures and delivers a higher peak brightness than most other OLEDs.
It is also a great choice for gamers and sports enthusiasts. With a native refresh rate of 120Hz, it’s perfect for PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles and can display 4K/120fps as specified in HDMI 2.1 with an input lag of just 8.5ms. Finally, it will be packaged in Google TV.
It’s more expensive than some of the other choices we’ve mentioned, but you won’t find another 77-inch TV these days that offers this level of performance for less.

Samsung’s The Frame is always a popular TV during events like Amazon’s Early Access days because it’s possible to score a huge discount on a great-looking screen.
This is the latest 2022 model of Samsung’s popular design, meaning it has a matte screen that reflects less glare than previous models. Amazon currently has a number of models on offer, but the 65-inch model strikes a good balance between price and performance.
Since it’s a QLED screen, it should be a bit brighter than typical LCD panels, with better contrasts and more vibrant colors. Plus, Samsung offers a ton of high-res artwork that you can display on the screen (as well as your own photos) when you’re not watching anything else.

The Hisense U7H and U8H are already here, but that doesn’t mean last year’s Hisense models aren’t worth picking up. In fact, with discounts like the ones we see today, the Hisense U7G is a great budget choice.
This TV has a bright screen with excellent color and sharpness. The only annoyance with this set is that Hisense’s motion smoothing feature is extreme, but at least there are plenty of options in the settings to reduce or disable the motion smoothing.
It’s also a great TV for gamers, due to its low lag time and the ability to display 4K content at 120Hz. The Hisense U7G has 2 HDMI 2.1 ports (as well as 2 HDMI 2.0 ports) for a fast connection.

It’s not as good as the LG C1 OLED deal, but if you want the cheapest OLED you can buy before Black Friday, you should look to the LG A1 OLED.
Available in a 48-inch size for just $679, this 48-inch set delivers a 4K picture with Cinema HDR and Dolby Vision support, and there’s an a7 Gen 4 AI processor for upscaling to UHD. Other highlights include a Game Optimizer mode and built-in Google Assistant and Alexa.
The LG A1’s built-in smarts give you access to all the best streaming services, including Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV Plus, and Disney Plus. And with the included Magic Remote, you can easily point, click and scroll, as well as shortcuts for content providers.

Here’s a surprise: the LG C2 OLED – the latest model for 2022 – is already discounted for Amazon’s Early Access sale.
What’s on offer is the smallest size — a 42-inch OLED — which has dropped from its regular price of $1,399 to just $996.
What makes the C2 better than the C1? Well, the C2 has a newer processor and comes in the 42-inch size that wasn’t available on last year’s C1. A 42-inch OLED TV can work perfectly in a dorm room or small apartment, and you get all the great benefits of the larger sizes, including 4K @ 120Hz support.

The list of great LG OLED TVs on sale today is the LG G2 big screen OLED. The best deal available right now is at Amazon, where the absolutely massive 83-inch model is at 23% off, the biggest discount on this model yet.
At $4,999, it’s not cheap, but we’d rather pay that than the usual $6,499 price.
To give you the summary of our LG G2 OLED review, it’s the brightest OLED TV LG has ever made, so you don’t have to worry about watching it in a bright room. Combined with LG’s excellent webOS interface, audio and picture quality, you have one of the best TVs out there. We also like how neat the TV looks thanks to the recessed ports on the back that hide the cables, but watch out for the patented holder if you want a kickstand for it.

Buying a new TV is of course a bit of an investment, so if all you want to do is upgrade the performance of an older TV – possibly one with an outdated smart platform – you might want to buy a new streaming device instead.
Many of the best deals are on Amazon’s own streamers, with the retailer slashing prices on its entire range of Fire TV sticks. You can now get the standard Fire TV Stick for $19 (opens in new tab) (usually $39) or the Fire TV Stick 4K (opens in new tab) for $25 (usually $49).

While temperatures are cooling in the US, you may still have a few good Sundays left to spend outside before the frost sets in. If you’re in that camp and want a nice TV to watch while you’re out on the patio, check out Samsung’s The Terrace 4K QLED TV.
These TVs are built to be in sunlight some of the time, with optimized screens and an IP55 weather rating against dust and dirt, so they’re ideal for placing on a patio or porch. And with a QLED display, you can expect a brighter, more vibrant picture with better contrasts than LCD TVs.
Right now, the 55-inch Terrace Outdoor 4K QLED TV is available from Amazon (opens in new tab) for $2,797, which is about $800 off its usual asking price.

Looking for other AV deals? Well, if you have a ton of movies in your Blu-ray and DVD collection, you might want a 4K Blu-ray player.
Fortunately, Amazon has a few options for sale today, including the Panasonic DP-UB420 and Panasonic DP-UB820. The former is your standard 4K Blu-ray player, but the latter has support for Dolby Vision Blu-rays, Hi-Res Audio, and more.
It is a good choice if you are planning to buy some 4K Blu-rays to match your new TV.

We spent some time on LG OLED TVs, now let’s talk about Samsung’s QLED TVs. You can find the full lineup of Samsung TV sales on Amazon, but there are a few models specifically worth mentioning.
One of my favorites right now is the Samsung QN90B, the follow-up to Tom’s Guide’s best TV of 2021. The 55-inch version of this one has dropped from $1,697 to $1,297 (24%), which is better than the deal we saw at the Amazon Prime Day event that took place in July.
What makes the QN90B great is that it includes the latest version of Samsung’s Neo QLED technology that promises higher peak brightness (above 2,500 nits) and better bloom control thanks to the MiniLED panel. It’s clearly a native 120Hz TV with support for HDR10 and HDR 10 Plus, and Object Sound Tracking+ sound for a more immersive audio experience.
If you want something fresh off the line, the Samsung QN90B is a good option.

This one comes with one caveat, but at $99, this Insignia Smart TV is a steal.
What you’re buying here is essentially a 32-inch Insignia 720p TV with Fire TV built-in. That means you don’t need to buy extra hardware to stream your favorite shows from Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, and 720p doesn’t look bad at this format.
The caveat I want to make here is that this is a 2018 TV – that’s right, this TV is older than the Covid-19 pandemic. What that could mean is slower performance on the road, which can lead to some frustration.
That said, it’s rare to see a smart TV at this price. $100 for a TV, let alone a 32-inch model with Fire TV built-in is a deal worth noting.
