A Google TV Blu-ray player for $300, an antenna capable of receiving OTA HD TV signals for $5 and a Roku box for 20% off: Those are only a few of the Black Friday deals we’ve found for people ready to cut the pay TV cord.


Oh, alright, we admit it: We try to resist the lure of Black Friday every year — but come Thanksgiving, we get all jittery, browsing countless catalogs and reloading Engadget non-stop.

Of course, the big challenge is to find the good stuff buried between all those Kindles and Zunes and washing machines, which is why we decided to come up with our own selective little Black Friday shopping guide for practicing and prospective cord cutters:
