UPDATE: Nov. 11, 2023, 5:00 a.m. EST This post has been updated with the best early Black Friday TV deals at Amazon including several Fire TV iterations and budget-friendly QLED models.
A quick look at the best early Amazon Black Friday TV deals
With Prime being the exclusive spot to watch Thursday Night Football, approximately no one expects Amazon to sit out the Black Friday TV deal competition. It’s just chilling for a second after two Prime Days in the past four months.
The time to strike, officially, is Friday, Nov. 17, according to an announcement on Nov. 6. While Amazon’s Black Friday sale will still run an entire week before actual Black Friday, it’s late compared to competition like Walmart, Best Buy, and Samsung, all three of which are already in the thick of their official Black Friday sales.
Depending on the kind of TV you’re eyeing, there’s still reason to hold out to see what Amazon’s TV offerings are. If you’re a casual TV enjoyer who cares more about staying within a certain budget than an elevated cinematic or gaming experience, you’ll definitely want to keep tabs on Amazon. We’re talking possibilities like a 50-inch Omni Fire TV for $149.99 or a 50-inch Hisense QLED Fire TV for $199.99 — both deals we saw during Prime Day 2 in October.
Though the Black Friday sale hasn’t officially kicked off, there are some hidden gems at Amazon already on sale at record-low pricing. We’re tracking the best TV deals at Amazon ahead of Black Friday below:
Why we like it
Amazon’s own 4-Series and Omni Fire TVs haven’t really gotten the early Black Friday treatment (yet), so your best bet for scoring a cheap Fire TV now is an Insignia or Toshiba model. We’re partial to this 75-inch one from Toshiba that’s back to its October Prime Day pricing. For the price, the C350 Series has decent viewing angles and supports Dolby Vision, and has the beloved responsive Fire TV platform built-in for hopping between your favorite apps.
