Over the past weeks, we've seen a number of excellent deals on big screen TVs as we gear up for Super Bowl LIII, which will feature the Los Angeles Rams doing battle against the New England Patriots. The weeks leading up to the Super Bowl are perhaps your last best time to score a smoking deal on a TV until Black Friday and Cyber Monday to close out 2019.
Best Buy is definitely getting into the gridiron spirit with a magnificent deal on the Hisense 55-inch 4K Roku TV (55R7E). The television has a regular MSRP of $499.99, but the retailer is currently selling it for a low $299.99.
Delivery is free depending on your location (putting in my zip code in central North Carolina showed no delivery availability, but other zip codes around the country show availability). If you find that free delivery is not an option, you can still choose to buy the television online for in-store pickup, or just go into the store for yourself and buy it in person.
The Hisense 55R7E, as mentioned above, measures 55 inches (54.6-inch actual) and has a UHD 4K resolution. In addition, the television is HDR capable, which should offer greater dynamic range for your movies and TV show. As its name implies, the 55R7E has built-in Roku hardware that gives you full, unfettered access to the company's smart platform including support for just about every top-tier streaming service like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, HBO Go and YouTube. The TV also comes with a bundled Roku remote, which should be familiar to those that have use standalone Roku streaming players in the past. Unfortunately, the remote doesn't support voice control.
The 55R7E has three HDMI ports, one USB port, dual 10-watt speakers, an onboard GbE port and Wi-Fi (dual-band 802.11ac).
Best Buy's $299.99 pricing on the Hisense 55R7E is good through this week and comes with a free one-month trial of Hulu with Live TV, Enhanced Cloud DVR and unlimited screens.
