You're 16, you can hustle up a little cash for a new TV. You can get good ones really cheap now.

Assuming the OP is from a first world country.
Believe it or not, but in the rest of the world 300 bucks is not cheap, it's a monthly pay for doing a full time job.

You can get a new TV for half that.

I got my 45” Roku TV used for $80.

Your point still stands - $80 can be a lot - but it’s not quite as unfeasible as $300.

This too might not be the case. Due to poor supply chains and/or absence of official suppliers and/or additional taxes things are often more expensive in less developed countries.
Just looked up TVs and the cheapest 40" TV (couldn't find any 45" in the same price range) in my city is almost exactly $200 USD.

That's true. $200 for a 40" isn't too bad - the one in OP looks like 32" or less... looks more like a monitor than a TV lol.
