Once you figure out what to get during the Black Friday 2020 deals for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox, you may consider upgrading the TV you play them on.

Several retailers are running TV deals and Black Friday sales. If you aren’t worried about the particulars of your new TV and just want to update what you currently have, then there are plenty of sales for your budget.

If you aren’t concerned about things like 4K/120 Hz gaming or many of the other features that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X can support, our general recommendation would be the TLC 6 Series TVs (Best Buy | Walmart).

For those looking to get the right TV for this year’s new consoles, we’ll have some information worth knowing and recommendations for you, too.


The online retailer is running a range of deals on TVs from multiple manufacturers. Depending on your brand preference and budget, we’ll give you some options to consider.

Best Buy

Best Buy has Black Friday TV deals for a a wide range of sizes and budgets.


Depending on your brand preference, Walmart may have a Black Friday deal for you. To help you decide which TV to get, we’ve broken down the deals for you based on each manufacturer.

TVs for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

If you have a PlayStation 5 or the Xbox Series X, then deciding on the right TV requires a bit careful consideration to get the most out of your new console.

For an detailed explanation of what to look for, read our guide on the best TVs for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. In short, look for a TV that has HDMI 2.1 and the associated features that those ports can accommodate. To be clear, not every TV with an HDMI 2.1 port is capable of taking advantage of those features, but our recommendations will work with your new console.


The LG CX has four HDMI 2.1 ports and supports 4K/120 Hz input. It even has G-Sync in case you want to hook it up to a desktop PC or laptop with a compatible Nvidia card. The LG CX is an OLED panel, which means it has true blacks, but also that it won’t get as bright as LEDs. Keep this in mind if you’re placing it in a very bright room.

Samsung Q90T

The Samsung Q90T has four HDMI ports, but only one of them is HDMI 2.1. The LCD panel on the Q90T allows it to get much brighter than an OLED panel, and it has lower input lag.

Sony X900H

The Sony X900H is a great midrange option for those looking to spend under $1,000. It has two HDMI 2.1 inputs that accept 4K/120 Hz content, but it currently doesn’t support variable refresh rate (VRR), a feature of Xbox Series X that keeps frame rates smooth, even when dipping below a game’s 60 fps or 120 fps target. Sony says it is working on a firmware update that will add that in the future.
