Black Friday is one of the best times of the year — if not the best time — to buy a new TV. Whether you're on the hunt for a small set for your bedroom or a big screen for your living room, there's bound to be TV deals that fit your budget.
We've put together a complete guide to Black Friday TVs, so you'll know the best stores to shop, as well as the kinds of deals you can expect.
What to Expect From Black Friday TVs 2019
We compiled all the best offers we saw during Black Friday season 2018 to see which brands have the most TV deals. From the week before Black Friday through the end of Cyber Week, we saw more LG TV deals, hands down, than any other brand. As shown in the table below, though, Samsung dominated the 50" to 59" size class, and RCA had better 32" TV deals.

Our Picks for the Best 32" TV
Doorbuster 32" Sets Will Drop to $80 or Less
In the past few years, 32" TV sets have become a staple among Black Friday doorbusters. While these tiny TVs might be more basic than your favorite 4K living room monster, they represent some of the best TV deals you can find.
Since we've already seen 32" TVs drop to $80 this year, we fully expect these bargains to fall that low — or lower — for Black Friday.
Walmart Small TV Deals Will Be Pricier
Last year, Target offered up a basic Panasonic Polaroid 32" TV for $80, while Amazon had a Toshiba 32" smart set for $130. At those prices, you should be ready to jump on these deals as soon as they go live — history has shown that these offers will disappear in the blink of an eye.
Our Picks for the Best 40" TV
LG Will Dominate 40" TV Deals
Last year, the retailer bundled a 43" LG TV with a $50 gift card for just $270. It also offered a 49" LG TV with a $100 gift card for $350. Remember, though: Gift card bundles are only a great deal if you use the gift card. If you're not a regular Dell shopper, you'll be better served by buying a slightly more expensive set with no gift card.
Our Picks for the Best 55" TV
50" Samsung TVs Will Hit $330
Many shoppers will be on the lookout for these midsize TVs come Black Friday, and you'll have a decent chance of getting one at a great price. If the trends of 2018 repeat, we expect Samsung to have the most deals across brands in the 50" to 59" category. Last year, we saw 50" Samsung TVs go for as little as $328, while 55" Samsung sets went for $350.
Get a 55" Smart TV for $250
If you're searching for a smart TV and price is more important to you than brand name, know that 55" smart TVs should be available for $250 or less. These days, it's becoming harder to find "dumb" TVs. The good news is that, if you're against a smart set, you can definitely still snag non-connected TVs in the 50" range. The bad news is they're likely to be from lesser-known brands, like Komodo.
Our Picks for the Best 65" TV
Choose In-Store Pickup for Name Brand 65" TVs
Those looking for a big TV should be prepared to opt for in-store pickup when they can. Last year, Target had a couple deals that DealNews staff identified as being among the best of the best for Black Friday 2018. We saw a 60" LG TV for $467, and a 65" LG set for $637, but both offers required a trip to the store.
What if you didn't want to deal with Black Friday crowds? We did see Google Shopping offer a 65" LG TV for $749 with free shipping — that was the lowest outright price we'd seen.
Doorbuster 65" TV Sets Will Hit $400
If you aren't hung up on name brands like LG and Samsung, then you can get a big-screen TV deal for even less. Watch for stores like Best Buy to offer 65" TCL Roku smart sets for as little as $400, but you'll have to get in-store pickup. However, last year the electronics retailer boasted 60" Sharp Roku TVs for around the same price, and those deals even had free shipping.
Our Picks for the Best 70" TV
Score a Huge TV for Just $700
LG will also offer the most deals in the 70" size class, assuming last year's trends hold. Notably, we expect to see stores like Best Buy offering 70" TV deals for as little as $700. Even bigger TVs will also be available, but the deals won't be as strong.
For instance, we saw a 75" LG TV at Dell Home bundled with a $100 gift card for $1,000 in 2018. Further, Dell Home offered an 86" LG set with a $250 gift card for $2,497. Watch for noteworthy Samsung deals in this class, as well. Last year, Rakuten bundled a 75" Samsung 4K TV with $324 in Rakuten points for only $1,298. If you enjoy shopping at Rakuten, a deal like that is a no-brainer.
