If you're in the market for a new television, there's good news: Now's a great time to be shopping for one. Walmart put a handful of great budget 4K televisions on deep discount during its Exclusive Access Event for Walmart+ subscribers. Best of all, most of these great budget TVs are still on sale.

The biggest discount to be had is on the 50-inch RCA 4K TV with Roku built-in. Normally priced at $699, Walmart+ members can buy this television today for just $288. That's not necessarily your best deal, however: You may prefer to pay a little extra and upgrade to a Vizio-brand television: the 50-inch Vizio M6 Series 4K smart TV is on sale for $328 (reduced from $406), while a 55-inch Vizio can be had for $398 (reduced from $498). There's even a 58-inch Samsung TV on sale that's proving incredibly popular with CBS Essentials readers.

There is a catch, however: To score these great TV deals, you need to be a paid Walmart+ member. Something akin to Walmart's version of Amazon Prime, a subscription to Walmart+ includes access to special sales events such as this one, plus exclusive PlayStation 5 restocks, free two-day shipping on purchases, discounts on prescription drugs and more. A Walmart+ membership costs $12.95 per month, or $98 per year.

Walmart offers a 30-day free trial for Walmart+, but note that only paid Walmart+ members have access to these TV deals.
