Yes, yes, we know — Fathers Day's not till June 19. But as a general rule of thumb, the more special the gift you're angling to get, the more time you should allow to get it secured. Also: If you're hoping to score a sale on a big-ish-ticket item, you'll want to grab that baby before it goes out of stock.
So it is with televisions, the favorite appliances of dads, bar none. We'll bet your dad spends more than a little time in front of the set, which means he, and it, may be past ready for an upgrade. And when it comes to competitive gift giving (which all gift giving ultimately is, if we're being honest), the sweet spot is when you can play the big shot for a very small price.
With that, we give you our picks for the best TV sales on the web right now, all just waiting for you and deliverable well in time for the big day.
Happy Fathers Day!
19 to 49 inches
Nobody's disputing that, when it comes to home-video enjoyment, size matters. But, while you can (and will, below) see plenty of deals for sets ranging upward of 75 inches, sometimes really nice things come in smaller packages. That's true especially if you're in the market for a second (or third) television, maybe something for the den, bedroom or dorm room.
With that we give you the Onn. 32” Class HD (720P) LED Roku Smart TV. "We're Onn to something here," says Walmart of this set and, in addition to admiring the megaretailer's affinity for bad puns, we're inclined to agree. Its DLED display features 720p resolution (yes, you can find a higher number out there, but for a set of this size, you'll get way more than ample clarity with this), and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Use it to watch shows and movies via cable, satellite, HDTV antenna (for you cord cutters who still like to check in on your local broadcast channels) and, of course, wireless streaming. Have we mentioned that Roku is built in? Have we also mentioned that right now it's just $124?
This baby's gotten a lot of love from Walmart shoppers. Says one: "I truly love this TV. It's nice looking, lightweight, and has super fast downloading speed. Every app runs great and I love I can cast to the TV from my phone.... Everything on this TV is perfect."

Sometimes just a couple of numbers tell you all you need to know: 55 inches and less than 300 bucks. Can't beat that with a bat! In case you're a tech naif, the "4K" in this TCL 55" Class 4-Series 4K UHD HDR Roku Smart TV means that its picture quality has four times the resolution of Full HD (not so "full" after all, is it?).
It's a boon for the streaming set, allowing you to create a personalized home screen via which you can access hundreds of streaming channels and over half a million movies and TV episodes! Oh, and you can navigate its voice-control function among your favorite sites and apps without even using a remote. Still got one foot in the pre-Netflix world? This set has a built-in digital tuner, which means you'll have access to all your local broadcast channels. Take that, cable company!
"This TCL Roku TV is amazing," said one very satisfied customer. "It has the brightest color without any glare. It was very easy to set up with the remote and guided me through it step by step.... The picture is sharp and the colors are bright. It allows Chromecast set up as well as Apple Airplay and has all the latest apps from HBO Max to Apple TV.... This is the best TV that I have seen, for an incredible price."

Here's one for those of you who crave a prestige brand and supersized screen. This Samsung 65-inch Series 4K UHD HDR Smart TV.

That really takes you inside the image. It also allows you to mirror your computer screen on your TV, and it can even mimic the wall behind it, making for a peculiarly high-tech kind of camoflauge.
At more than $150 off, you'll be getting yourself a loaded, super-smart TV with lots of cool capabilities. And it's a Samsung, so you know you'll be getting top-notch home entertainment for years and years.
"I no longer need my Roku any longer," said this smart consumer. "This TV has it all bundled inside and is displayed on the home screen after you start up the TV. Yabadabadoooo!!!
