I used to have a matte TV that resisted glare very well. There has to be something out there nowadays?

You are going to want to look for a display with MothEye anti-glare tech. There are microscopic grooves in the filter that scatter light like a moth's eye, hence the name. It has been out in Japan for 3-4 years now, but is just starting to come to the US. Samsung calls their version Ultra Black on some models, but you can not come close to that size for your target price. TCL and Hisense may also have it soon. If you check out the Samsungs make sure you do your homework. Like everything now days they make everything confusing so you can not compare specs. The closest you can probably get until next year is the 55" Samsung KS8000 for around $1500.

DON'T ARGUE WITH ME. I AM NEVER WONG.

Manufacturers don't use matte/anti-glare tech these days now that we're in 4K land because it degrades picture quality. Anti-glare works by scattering incoming light in multiple directions so reflections don't make it back to your eye. This inherently makes it difficult for light coming FROM the TV to all make it to your eye, as it too will be scattered. Manufacturers are in a battle to produce the most crisp and accurate displays, and that means getting all the light from TV to your eye unadulterated.
