Looking for a cheap television? Black Friday is generally the best time of year to find a good deal on a TV, with Sony, LG, Panasonic and Samsung slashing prices on their latest 4K and OLED sets. Television prices fluctuate wildly throughout the year, and because Black Friday has become such a massive shopping event, manufacturers are on a mission to entice customers with discounts that look good on paper but aren’t necessarily great deals.
That’s why we’re sifting through the Black Friday TV deals to filter out the clutter and show you actual discounts on TVs we’ve tested and can recommend. A cornerstone of the Black Friday sales bonanza, televisions are heavily discounted during the shopping event, with screens of all sizes from brands such as Samsung, Sony and LG all slashing their prices.
We’ve sorted our Black Friday TV deals by screen size to make it easier to find a television that fits your living space. If you see a TV deal you like in a different format, it’s worth clicking through and seeing if there’s a similar discount available for the format you want. Televisions are measured diagonally, from one corner to the other. Always measure your space before purchasing. You can return a TV that doesn’t fit, but that’s what we in the industry call “a giant faff.”
And remember, Black Friday isn’t just about televisions. The sales event offers discounts on laptops, gaming, technology, mattresses, home and kitchen appliances, beauty products, fashion and much more. As always, the IndyBest team brings you all the latest on the best Black Friday deals we spot, including cash from Amazon and Apple devices, cordless vacuums, and energy-efficient appliances like air fryers and heated clothes dryers.

Best 32 inch TV Black Friday deals
Hisense 32A4EGTUK HD smart TV: was £159, now £145, Amazon.co.uk
There’s only a small £10 saving on this 32-inch Hisense TV, but it’s one of the cheapest deals you’ll find this Black Friday. It has basic specs and a 720p resolution screen (that’s less than full HD, let alone 4K), but offers plenty of picture quality for a limited budget. Compatible with a decent selection of streaming apps – the TV runs on the Vidaa OS – it’s a great TV for the kitchen or bedroom.
Best 42in TV Black Friday Deals
Hisense 43A6BGTUK 4K smart TV: was £329, now £249, Currys.co.uk
You really don’t get 4K televisions much cheaper than this. Certainly not a decent one like the Hisense 43A6GTUK, which supports Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos sound and 120Hz refresh rates for console and PC gaming. What’s the catch? Well, it’s an LCD screen, so you don’t get the IMAX-style rich contrast of TVs three to four times the price. But unless you’re outfitting a Tony Soprano-style home theater system, or are kept awake at night thinking about “nits” and “contrast ratios”, we dare you to spot the difference. This is a bargain 4K television and it looks great.
Best 48in TV Black Friday Deals
LG C2 48in 4K OLED Smart TV: Was £1,399.99, now £899, Amazon.co.uk
Launched earlier this year, the LG C2 is one of our favorite TVs, offering the best picture quality you’ll find in the 48-inch and below category. This is a vibrant 4K set with Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound. Xbox, PlayStation and PC gamers will appreciate the silky-smooth 120Hz variable refresh rate and 0.1ms response time, while the self-illuminating OLED pixels and image processing provide rich contrast between dark and light areas of the scene. There are discounts on most sizes available, but they are not applied evenly.
Best 50in TV Black Friday DealsBest 50in TV Black Friday Deals
Philips 50-inch Smart TV 4K UHD OLED television: was £679, now £549, Currys.co.uk
This 4K OLED television from Philips is £130 off at Currys until Friday. That’s a decent saving on an already cheap 50-inch set with cinematic Dolby Vision and sound system. Like many Philips TVs, it comes with ambilight technology, a flashy setup that uses LED backlighting to illuminate the wall with the same colors you see on screen. It’s a strangely immersive effect, especially when watching movies in the dark.
Samsung UE50AU9000: was £529, now £399, AO.com
One of the better Black Friday deals we spied at AO this morning is on this 50-inch 4K Samsung TV, which was already great value at £529 but is now a bargain at £399. The TV is cheaper than rivals because it uses the cheaper LED technology, which is slightly less vibrant than OLED or QLED panels.
Best 55in TV Black Friday Deals
The best TV deal we’ve seen ahead of Black Friday is on this Sony Bravia XR55A80J. It’s an excellent 55-inch 4K OLED screen and features the Google TV interface, Dolby Atmos sound, and Sony’s “acoustic surface audio technology,” which turns the entire screen into a speaker. We still recommend a separate soundbar if you can get one. The TV is down to £999 from £1,399 in the Black Friday sale.
LG 55UQ7500 4K smart TV: was £499, now £429, Very.co.uk
Here’s a £70 saving on a 55-inch smart TV from LG, one of the top-rated TV brands you’ll find. This model strikes the perfect balance between image quality and affordability, and it was already one of our most recommended buys before the discount. LCD panels may lack the rich contrast of more expensive TVs in the range, but the range of streaming apps, smooth interface, built-in FreeView and effortless connectivity make this a great choice for just about any living room.
TCL 55CF630K 55in 4K Smart TV: was £429, now £349, Amazon.co.uk
If you’re looking for a big screen TV on a budget, this is a good option from TCL. It’s a 55-inch QLED television with a 4K resolution, plus support for Dolby Vision, HDR 10+ and Dolby Atmos. There’s also a game mode, Wi-Fi for all your favorite streaming apps, and voice control with Amazon Alexa support.
Samsung 55in BU8500 4K smart TV: was £799, now £499, Amazon.co.uk
This deal saves £300 on a 55in 4K smart TV from Samsung. Reduced from £799 to £499, this current-gen Samsung display was new for 2022 and offers integration with the company’s SmartThings smart home system, plus it comes with a solar-powered remote control that never needs new batteries has.
Best 65 inch TV Black Friday deals
LG OLED 65in A2 smart TV: was £1,699, now £1,299, Currys.co.uk
This is a great price for an OLED TV of this size, especially one launched in 2022. The OLED panel uses per-pixel illumination rather than a flat backlight to produce unbeatable contrast and color reproduction compared to a standard LCD or LED screen. The effect is particularly noticeable in dark rooms, making this set ideal for cinema visits at home.
Samsung 65in BU8500 4K smart TV: was £1,099, now £699, Amazon.co.uk
This Samsung TV is currently on an impressive 36 per cent discount, saving you over £400. Promising to deliver a “true-to-life, vibrant picture” whether you’re catching up on the latest Marvel release or your favorite box set. It’s also designed with adaptive audio, which automatically adjusts the sound depending on what you’re watching for an all-encompassing immersive experience.
Best 85in TV Black Friday Deals
Sony Bravia KD-85X85J: was £2,999, now £2,005.70, Amazon.co.uk
This huge Sony Bravia TV has an 85-inch screen with 4K resolution and Dolby Vision compatibility. It comes from 2021 and runs on the Google TV operating system, which gives access to streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime TV and YouTube. There’s also Dolby Atmos compatibility and the 100Hz refresh rate is perfect for gamers, thanks to the smoother movement it creates.
Black Friday 2022 in the UK
Black Friday is today. The annual sales event always takes place the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday. It falls on the last Thursday of November, which means Black Friday fell on November 25 this year.
While the event used to be just one day long, Black Friday has grown into an entire weekend and spills over into Cyber Monday as well. And some retailers like to jump in the gun and kick off their Black Friday sales for a week, or even a whole month in some cases, that’s what we saw last year from Amazon, Currys, Argos and AO, all of them kicking off their Black Friday sales started well in 2021 for the big day itself.
When is Cyber Monday 2022?
When Black Friday was an entirely offline affair, with stores opening their doors to throngs of eager shoppers at the stroke of midnight, Cyber Monday was the online equivalent.
While retailers sometimes change the name of their sale when the new week begins, Cyber Monday is essentially more of the same. You might see some unique deals that day, but chances are some deals will continue all weekend through Monday, which is November 28 this year.
