Apple TV isn’t on sale for Black Friday, but this HomeKit-enabled TV is

2 weeks ago 13

With Black Friday seemingly in full swing already, you'd be forgiven for wondering exactly where all of the Black Friday Apple TV deals are. Unlike a bunch of other Apple tech, Apple TV seems to be missing out on significant savings this year so far, but there's another way to bring your TV into your smart home experience: HomeKit.

And with this $300 saving on a HomeKit-enabled VIZIO P-Series 4K TV, it might be much more affordable than you think to upgrade your TV set this year. Down to under $1,000, the 65-inch P-Series set offers easy access to all of the streaming apps you need, including Apple TV+, while also including AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support which makes integrating it into your Apple smart home so much easier.

Today's early Black Friday price is a match for the lowest we have ever seen it go making for one of the best Black Friday HomeKit deals yet. You even have a few different retailers to choose from where you can snag the deal.

If you want to bring your TV into your smart home setup, get one with HomeKit support built-in. Coming in 65, 75, and 85-inch sizes, it offers a gorgeous 4K display with Quantum Color, 1200 nits of peak brightness, and a ProGaming Engine. It offers all of the smart apps you want plus AirPlay and HomeKit support.

VIZIO's P-Series TVs offer basically everything you need in a modern set. There's a gorgeous 4K UHD display with Quantum Color, 1200 nits of peak brightness, and a ProGaming Engine meaning everything you watch on it will look vibrant with smooth motion. It's also got support for Dolby Vision, HDR10+, and HLG along with an IQ Ultra Processor which is VIZIO's fastest to date.

When it comes to content you'll be well served with smart TV apps for Apple TV, Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, and many more. There's even free TV in the included WatchFree+ service and you can easily share content from your iPhone or iPad to the TV with built-in AirPlay support.

Of course, you can still hook up a streaming stick or Apple TV box if you want to. There are 4 HDMI 2.1 ports on the back of the TV for any extra devices or consoles you want to connect as well as as USB and Ethernet ports.

The best part of this TV, though, is its HomeKit compatibility. That means you can include it in your HomeKit automations and scenes, have Siri turn on the TV for you, and control things like input and volume from your phone.

Though you can clearly do a lot with a HomeKit and AirPlay-enabled smart TV, there are still some aspects that remain exclusive to Apple TV like Fitness+, Apple Arcade, and iTunes. If you do in fact want the entire tvOS experience you'll have to hope the Apple TV 4K goes on sale over the next few days.
