This Black Friday and holiday season you can buy any number of dirt-cheap TVs, and many of them might even cost a few bucks less than Roku TVs made by TCL. The 32-inch version sells for an almost unbelievably inexpensive $125 at Walmart, for example, but some Black Friday deals are even cheaper.
I’d still take the Roku TV, however. To stream Netflix and other stuff to one of those other TVs you’ll probably have to connect an external device like a Chromecast or Roku Express, and eat into the savings by at least $30. Even if you have a streamer already (like a game console), you’ll have to juggle a second remote. The whole arrangement can’t match the simplicity and range of apps offered by a Roku TV.
The fact that you don’t have to connect an external streaming device, combined with their dirt-cheap prices, makes TCL’s Roku TVs our go-to ultrabudget budget pick at modest screen sizes this year.
