    TCL’s 6-Series 4K HDR televisions with Roku software built in are an incredible value even at their usual asking price. You can spend thousands on a big 4K TV, but if your eyes are set on something cheaper, The Verge calls TCL’s latest “the best 4K TV under $1,000.” And today, you’ll be able to find it for far less than that at Best Buy.

    Normally $599.99, you’ll be able to check out with a $100 discount on the 55-inch model, which brings the final price down to $499.99. Black Friday and Cyber Monday offered better deals on 4K HDR TVs in this size range, but TCL’s offering is most likely a step above in terms of build quality and performance.

    However, compared to buying directly through TCL or another retailer, the Best Buy model’s included remote doesn’t support voice commands. Though, if you have a Google Home, you can control this television via Google Assistant. Alternatively, if you’re looking to bolster the 6-Series’ limited remote, the $200 Roku TV Speakers include a voice remote.


    Part of TCL’s 6-Series line, which features 4K HDR, Mini LED backlighting, and four HDMI ports. Unlike the latest model, the R635 runs on Roku’s TV platform and lacks some of the more recent upgrades, including support for 4K gaming at 120Hz.
