It’s a crazy time of the year, and one when you’ll find a limitless variety of products are cheaper than usual. That’s especially the case with tech products like televisions.
You can expect to find dozens of TVs with their prices reduced when Black Friday comes around, whether they're entry-level 4K sets or top-end OLED models.
But before you start your search for a brand-new TV, you might justifiably ask: how is a 4K television set different from your Full-HD one? And are you having doubts about picking an OLED model over your old LCD? We have written a handy article to help you understand the differences between TV technologies.
We also have put together a list of the best 4K TVs you can buy before the end of the year.
Read on to find our selection of the best Black Friday TV deals.
Black Friday TV Deals: 39 to 45-inch
TVs between 39 and 45 inches are the entry-level standard when it comes to 4K. You may find smaller sets than that, but you won't appreciate the high resolution as much.
Within this range, most experts agree that 42 inches is the ideal size to start enjoying 4K while sitting at a reasonable distance from your TV screen.

They are also not excessively big, so they can be placed in most rooms without taking up too much space, and viewed from a distance that is healthy for your eyes.

Black Friday TV Deals: 65 to 74-inch
TVs in this range are both large and expensive, so you need to make sure you have a large space to place them, as well as a higher budget.
Because of their relatively high price, however, savings here can be substantial, with some retailers slashing £600 off the retail price this Black Friday.

Where should I buy a TV on Black Friday?
That’s easy: the retailer with the lowest prices.
This is likely to be here, Argos, Amazon, AO, John Lewis and Very – these are all the biggest TV sellers during the Black Friday sales.
What you’ll likely find is these retailers will engage in a ruthless price-matching war, each lowering the prices of television, and often to the exact same price… with Amazon often undercutting its rivals by £1.
Something to remember is that Currys and John Lewis both offer a policy of guaranteed price-matching – make sure you hold them to it if you need to.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look elsewhere – the TV brands themselves, such as LG, Samsung, Sony, and TCL, all have online stores, and will often offer price drops on their models during Black Friday.
So keep an eye out across all these sites for top TV deals, but more importantly, make sure you bookmark this page, as we’ll be regularly updating it with all the best TV deals and discounts.
When will Black Friday TV deals start?
The very best deals will likely kick off in the week of Black Friday, which commences Monday November 22.
However, that's by no means when the deals first appear: based on the sales that retailers have offered in previous years, we might see discounts on sets a good fortnight in advance of Black Friday.
In truth, it's hard to make a forecast, especially in this year's consumer climate is a febrile one, marked by stock issues and supply crises.
The best thing to do is to bookmark this page and check in on a regular basis from around mid-November onwards – we'll be keeping it up-to-date with the best deals that we discover.
When will Black Friday TV deals end?
Cyber Monday typically concludes the Black Friday deals period, but it's far from impossible you'll still find TV deals online in the succeeding weeks that lead up until Christmas.
That being said, we imagine this will likely – if you'll pardon the phrase – be the dregs of the deals, all the genuinely decent price drops on genuinely decent televisions having been already snapped up.
So if you see a TV deal that you like the look of during Black Friday week, don't leave it on the off-chance you'll find a better one later down the line.
How can I get the best Black Friday TV deal?
Firstly, it's worth bearing in mind that all the major retailers (we're looking at you, Amazon, Currys, Very and John Lewis) tend to engage in ruthless price-matching wars in this particular category.
It's worth keeping this in mind if you see the same discounted price on a number of different websites – if the TV deal you see is sold out on one, you should definitely look elsewhere to see if you can get it for the same price.
Oh, and always head to Amazon to see what the retail giant is offering – it has a cheeky habit of undercutting its rivals by as little as £1.
Lastly, don't forget that both Currys and John Lewis offer a price-match promise – so if you see a TV that's cheaper elsewhere but no longer available, hold them to it.
What are the best TV brands in 2021?
There are three brands that dominate the TV market, though there are plenty of other manufacturers who create high-quality sets.
The biggest TV-maker out there is Samsung, who has dazzled consumers this year with its new line of Neo-QLED sets (and its QLED sets become way more affordable too).
Then there's LG, whose webOS smart platform has a stellar reputation for its ease of use, and do some superb OLED sets.
Lastly, there's Sony, famed for its Bravia line of televisions.
If you go with any of these brands, we can assure you that you're in safe hands – but Panasonic, Hisense, JVC and Philips are all worth attention too.
There's also the all-new Sky Glass, Sky's first ever television. It seems likely we'll see price drops on some of the bundle packages that it offers.

Is Black Friday a good time to buy a TV?
Without a doubt. Tech products take a starring role in the Black Friday sales, and you'll always find spectacular prices on televisions.
Late November is always the perfect moment to pick up a great TV for cheaper than usual, and we would always recommend you hold off upgrading until then.
Well, not always – around Easter time is also a key sales period, and during Amazon Prime Day, Prime subscribers have access to lots of decent telly deals.
Should I wait until Black Friday to buy a TV?
At this point in the year, it's wise to save your spending until Black Friday.
Retailers will now be saving their best discounts until late November rolls around, knowing that's when shoppers (and yes, us too) will be keeping our eyes peeled for all the hottest discounts.
Should I buy a TV on Black Friday or wait for Cyber Monday?
If you see an amazing TV deal on Black Friday, and one that’s the right screen size and budget for you, we suggest you don’t hang about until Cyber Monday.
If it’s a genuinely good price drop, it could easily become sold out over that weekend.
On top of that, Cyber Monday isn’t the standalone event that it was historically.
Traditionally, it’s a day of online-only deals, in contrast to the in-store aisle-dashing on Black Friday itself.
But these days, with online shopping booming, there’s very little difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
You might find a final wave of TV deals on the latter day – but if we’re being honest, it will likely be a last-gasp stock push from the retailers and we don’t think it’s worth banking on.
What Black Friday TV deals were there last year?
Last year we saw a wide selection of fantastic TV deals, across a range of brands, screen sizes and price points.
There was price drops across pretty much every last TV brand, including Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Philips, JVC and Luxor.
We saw an impressive £100.99 knocked off the 43-inch JVC LT-CF890 Fire TV Edition at Currys, and £300 off the 55-inch Sony Bravia KDA8 4K OLED HDR TV at John Lewis.
Very knocked hundreds of pounds off a range of Samsung televisions during the 2020 Black Friday sales, with savings running as high as £800.
When do Black Friday TV sales end?
As a general rule, Black Friday sales draw to an end on Cyber Monday (read on to find out more about this date).
But this is by no means set in stone – you’ll find that certain retailers will continue to run sales once Cyber Monday is over, although it’s likely to be all the remaining stock, so not the best products out there.
You might get lucky and snap up a TV bargain into December, but it’s not a good idea to start looking then.
When is Black Friday 2021?
This year, Black Friday falls on 26 November.
Black Friday is a Stateside tradition – without fail, it always falls on the day after American Thanksgiving. That might not be something celebrated in the UK – but hey, we can all get on board with bargain shopping, right?
It first began in the Sixties, and traditionally was an intensive one-day sale. But now sales periods stretch out far longer than that: you can expect to see deals online even as early as the beginning of November. So whatever you do: don’t wait until the Friday itself to start searching for great TV deals.
When is Cyber Monday 2021?
Cyber Monday, as you would probably imagine, falls on the Monday after Black Friday.
Traditionally, it’s very much been its own self-contained sales day, but that’s changed over the years and there’s little to distinguish it from Black Friday.
You’ll probably want to take a breather over the weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but while there might be a slight deals lull, retailers may still put fresh TV deals online anyway.
