Having an OLED 4K TV on your wish list used to be a dream few could achieve, but that’s no longer the case. If you’re looking for something under $600 Best Buy has the 48-inch LG A2 for $569.99. The previous generation A1 has never been sold at such a low price, so it’s good to see that this special sale has continued for the last couple of weeks. This OLED TV is one of Best Buy’s best early Black Friday deals and can be extended through the holiday period, which runs until January 14, 2023.
We haven’t tested the A2 yet, but we know it sits at the bottom of LG’s OLED lineup, below the B2 and C2. The main difference between the A2 and more expensive models is its standard 60Hz refresh rate and lack of an HDMI 2.1 port for gaming at fast 4K refresh rates. These are features for B2 and above. Still, the A2 is a showcase for what OLED is capable of, with true-to-life blacks, incredible viewing angles and brilliant contrast. Check site Evaluation.com reports that the A2 is brighter than the A1, but not as bright as the C2 with LG’s new 2022 Evo OLED panel.

You can launch the app (available on Android, Google TV, ChromeOS, PC, macOS, and some smart TVs) and access it over Wi-Fi or cellular. Connecting via Ethernet will give you the best results, but I’ve had good experiences with Wi-Fi.
