Looking for TV, any advice?

Loaded question ahead:

Looking to replace our primary TV in our family room. Open area with high ceilings towards the upstairs, so sound travels, but would be willing to add a sound bar to enhance the tinny sound of most TV's. Looking for advice on places to buy, warranties and packages. Would like a Smart TV that allows our Apps to be all in one place, like Netflix, Amazon, Disney + and more, but I'm not sure about which types of TV's (Roku, Android, etc) are best and easiest to use. We will also play video games from a console on this TV.

Looking to spend - around $1000 total, give or take....I know it's not a lot.
Size - 55" and up

Are the following any good?

Visions

Visions has this for $148 with any TV purchase:

Or this:

Which comes with

for $748 total and a $100 Netflix GC.

Costco

Any advice on anything I've asked above would be greatly appreciated. We hadn't needed a TV for awhile, so I was out of the loop as what it meant for good brands, qualities and features, but need one now.

I'd stick with the popular brands like Samsung, LG, Sony, Vizio and lately TCL and Hisense for the budget conscious.

Thanks. Since I’m budget conscious, I’m leaning towards the Hisense listed above.

That would be helpful, thanks.

Gaming is part of it but also movies and tv.

Just bought the below from Best Buy, and love the tv so far. Read up on many tv's in the category, and have no issues. Now these are hard to find but the Newmarket location had 3 display models, and we grabbed one for $575 including the 4 year warranty.
