Takealot, Everyshop, Incredible Connection, and Makro have slashed the prices of 75-inch and larger 4K smart TVs.
Large screen TVs have become more popular over the last year as more people invested in home entertainment amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
Netflix is particularly popular and offers UHD streaming – 2160p with a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution – on its Premium package.
For those who prefer Showmax or DStv, there is also automatic upscaling of lower resolution content to 4K.
Most 4K smart TVs have a built-in upscaling engine which increases the pixel count of lower-resolution content.
The enhanced experience offered by modern TVs has encouraged many middle-class households in South Africa to buy a flatscreen smart TV.
For those with a lot of disposable income, ultra-large TVs with screen sizes of 75-inches and above are the preferred option.
Good news is that these TVs are now more affordable thanks to promotions from prominent retailers.
Takealot has many ultra-large TVs on special as part of its tenth Birthday sale, which runs until the beginning of June.
At the same time, Hisense is having a super brand week promotion with price cuts on TVs through HiFi Corp, Everyshop, and other retailers.
Samsung has also cut the price on many of its high-end TVs, which include a 75-inch 4K TV which is now available for under R20,000.
With big-name brands like Hisense, Samsung, LG, Toshiba, and Sony fighting for market share in South Africa, consumers benefit from better prices.
Here is a list of specials on ultra-large TVs from Takealot, Everyshop, Incredible Connection, HiFi Corp, and Makro.
