Walmart has some good deals.  We bought a  "normal size" LG there since that company has a good reputation.  We're happy with it.
It has a beautiful picture and many features we're still trying to figure out.  scratch

However, one advantage of buying at Costco is that if you want to return anything, it has a "no hassle" policy.  You never know at Walmart.  I bought an electronic item at the Guadalajara Walmart and it wasn't what I thought it was, so I brought it in, all packed and perfect, to the local store and was told that, since they don't carry that particular item, I'd need to return it to the Guad. store.  WHAT??

Yes Walmart does have some good deals. LG or Samsung. Get the smart TV that connects to your wifi and has the built in Netflix, etc.

If you enjoy Mexican Netflix, this is good.
If you prefer U.S. Netflix, don't use that. look up "dedicated VPN" and sign up for one. There are about 8 surviving at this point.

I get pretty much everything on Mexican Netflix as the Canadian Netflix. Just have to put up with a few subtitles on some shows.

Go on line to Costco.com.mx and check the many options available to you. Often the prices are better than Walymart.

Oh and the Olympics are coming in live and well via satellite.

Costco as they stand behind the product. Just bought one of the new LG OLED (organic light emitting diodes) 55" set from Costco. Very happy with the choice and Costco. Lots of choices in all sizes. For a small set I suggest a 42" as letterbox image gets kinda small on smaller sets. Yes we all shop at Walmart for the most part but big ticket items I buy at Costco.
