People typically associate Black Friday with good deals on TVs, but it's not your only chance to score a cheap display. The Super Bowl usually happens right after the annual Consumer Electronics Show, which is when manufacturers announce all their fancy new models. As a result, you can find some very solid deals on current TVs to make room for the new stuff.

While you might be able to find cheaper TVs on the whole around Thanksgiving, the Super Bowl approach is when many of the higher-end TVs actually go on sale, rather than the ultra-bargain panels.

A few tips before we dive into the deals:

  • You're going to want your new TV to support 4K (and HDR if you can swing it), but the game itself won't be broadcast in 4K. The upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics, however, will have 4K content to consume.

  • Buying a really big, really cheap TV won't get you a perfect viewing experience. You're likely better off buying a smaller, higher quality TV, than going purely on size.

  • Once you get your new TV, set aside some time to tweak the picture so it looks its best. Here's a guide to get you going.
