Whether your perfect weekend involves watching sports, binging a new series or finally catching that film you never got to watch in theaters, one thing's for sure: You need a TV that can handle all the action (and make it look good, too).
No need to spend a fortune on a gorgeous new screen: Walmart just marked down a stunning 65-inch Sony Class KD65X80J Smart TV a ridiculous 50% off. That means you can score a $1,400 TV for under $700. We'll wait while you pick your jaw up off the floor.
Want to save even more? Make sure you’re signed up for Walmart+. It’s easy to sign up for your free 30-day trial here. You’ll get free grocery delivery, savings on gas and prescriptions, exclusive access to major deals, and more. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)
Don't be fooled by the obscene markdown. The TV boasts 4K HDR, plus it runs on a powerful X1 4K HDR processor (in layman's terms: more lifelike images and less digital noise). It also comes with a massive 4K database, which automatically upscales all the HD shows and films you watch to near-4K quality.
The best part, of course, are the TV's smart capabilities. Because it's a Google TV, it has access to over 700,000 films and TV show episodes, so you'll virtually never have "nothing to watch". Plus, you can easily connect to Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and Amazon Instant Video, among others.
"My wife got me this television for Christmas and is the best gift ever," shared one thrilled shopper. "So many features on the television along with an amazing picture. Our living room is next level. Thanks Sony!"
You haven't seen a TV like this — at least, not according to this reviewer.
"We've had our new TV for a little over a month now and absolutely love the picture," he enthusiastically reported. "We've been missing something for years it seems! Resolution is amazing and people and characters seem to jump right out at you."
A third reported: "This SONY Bravia TV has the sharpest image and natural colors that I have ever experienced. To top it off the sound system complements and does justice to the wonderful viewing experience of this unique television set!"
Remy was interviewing with a video game company when he asked the obvious question: would he need to learn French to work in Quebec? Remy wasn't from the province and didn't speak the language. The company, like many of the major players in Canada's video game industry, was based in Quebec. "[So I asked], is that going to be a problem?" Remy said. (Remy is not his real name. CBC News is protecting his identity because he fears work reprisals for speaking publicly.) "I was assured that all meetin

OTTAWA — A new report from the Canada Revenue Agency concludes the federal government is losing an average of up to $22 billion a year in unpaid taxes. The agency analyzed tax collection from 2014 to 2018 for its first report on Canada’s “overall tax gap” released today. The CRA estimates the net tax gap for those five years, or the amount of the money owed to the government that it did not actually collect, totalled as much as $111.2 billion. Although the net amount of uncollected tax trended u

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court said Monday that a high school football coach who sought to kneel and pray on the field after games was protected by the Constitution, a decision that opponents said would open the door to “much more coercive prayer" in public schools. The court ruled 6-3 for the coach with the court’s conservative justices in the majority and its liberals in dissent. The case was the latest in a line of rulings for religious plaintiffs. The case forced the justices to wrestle

HALIFAX — A high-profile sex scandal involving Prince Andrew is prompting a school in Dartmouth, N.S., to change its name. As of Aug. 1, Prince Andrew High School will be renamed Woodlawn High School, to reflect the name of the street and subdivision where the school is located. The school was named after Prince Andrew in 1960, the year he was born, but a recent sex scandal involving a 17-year-old girl and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein led the school to distance itself from the royal.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Sen. Mike Lee faces his first test of 2022 in Utah's Republican primary on Tuesday, where he's being challenged by two well-funded opponents in a race that should offer insight into whether loyalty to former President Donald Trump remains a litmus test for Republican voters. Former state lawmaker Becky Edwards and businesswoman Ally Isom — neither of whom voted for Trump — have spent months on the campaign trail framing Lee as a divisive politician who cares less about gove

A housing development coordinator in Lunenburg County, N.S., says the housing crisis has reached unprecedented levels, with families living in campgrounds in the summer, and seniors burning furniture for warmth in the winter.
