Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days, also known as October Prime Day, are quickly approaching, and Amazon is giving us a glimpse of what to expect with some incredible early Prime Day TV deals. One of the standout discounts is an invite-only offer for a 50-inch 4K Fire TV Omni priced at just $149 on Amazon. This deal is hard to beat for a 4K Smart TV of this size. Alternatively, you can opt for the Hisense 50-inch U6HD 4K QLED TV priced at $199, which offers improved brightness, contrast, and color thanks to its QLED display.
It’s important to note that these deals are exclusively available to Amazon Prime members who have received an invitation during the Prime Day period, which falls between October 10 and October 11. While there’s no guarantee of access even if you request an invite, it’s still recommended to do so as soon as possible to increase your chances of being selected.
Requesting an invitation is a straightforward process. Simply make sure you’re logged into your Prime account and click the “request invite button,” usually found in the same location as the “add to cart” button on the Amazon listing page. The deals will commence on October 10, and if you’re selected, Amazon will contact you, providing you with a limited time to complete your purchase.
The Fire TV Omni may not be featured on our list of the best TVs, but it offers great value for the price of $149. In our Fire TV Omni review, we observed a peak brightness of 494 nits and 96% coverage of the Rec 709 color space, which are impressive results for a TV in this price range. Additionally, the TV handles fast motion and color well.
With a low lag time of 9.8ms, the Fire TV Omni is also suitable for gaming. However, its 60Hz refresh rate is a drawback. The 8-watt speaker system delivers minimal distortion and good clarity for dialogue and sound effects. But if audio quality is important to you, considering adding one of the best soundbars to enhance the TV’s sound.
As for the Hisense U6HF, it is similar to the Hisense U6H, which we consider one of the best budget TVs available. The main distinction is that the U6HF runs on the Fire TV operating system, while the U6H runs on Google TV. We prefer the U6H due to this difference, but both TVs provide strong performance and excellent value for money.
These TVs are perfect choices for a game room or home office. Make sure to apply for an invitation to have a chance at scoring these incredible deals. These invite-only deals aren’t the only ones available this Prime Day, so keep an eye out for more.
