A shiny new 4K TV is still the purchase of choice for Black Friday shoppers in 2022, so we’ve rounded up the best deals on a wide range of sets recommended by Digital Foundry – from affordable LED and QLED options to the best OLED and QLED TVs for gaming, movies and TV. We’re expecting to see discounts on all brands, from Sony and Samsung to LG and Panasonic, so now should be a great time to pick up a new TV, no matter where your cravings lie. And of course – our offers cover both the UK and the USA, so you should be able to find something to suit you, whichever side of the Atlantic you live on!
If you’re unsure which TV to choose, and more generally where to find the best deals, stay here – we’ll be updating this page throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
In terms of dividing, we’ll go by screen size, which should make things easier if you’re aware of the size of your current TV that you might end up replacing.
Even with the steady increase in the average screen size on TVs sold, the fact is that not everyone has room for a 55-inch TV, let alone something bigger. This first round of deals is for all TVs up to 49-inches, which is best if you don’t have the space for something bigger, or don’t want to spend so much on a larger TV. .
Below you’ll find deals on TVs up to 50-inches, and this might be where you’ll find the best cross-section of options, whether you’re looking for a smaller OLED option, or a handy QLED choice, or more than a standard and more affordable LED TV.
Sitting in the middle of TV screen sizes is the fatal 50-59 inch category, which will of course be best if you have room for a TV of that size, as well as if you want to upgrade from a TV on a higher level. which could have been suitable in the previous section for its size. TVs of this size are more used for watching movies in general and console gaming on the sofa, rather than being used as a monitor, for example, before you get any ideas!
And now, in the last section – TVs of 60 inches and above. Ideally reserved for those with huge amounts of wall space who want the most immersive and cinematic gaming and viewing experiences possible, whether you opt for OLED with its immense contrast, QLED with its incredible brightness or QD-OLED which combines the two.
So there you have it – these are some of the best current early Black Friday TV deals we can find right now. As we get closer to the big day, expect this article to become a sea of offers – after all, that’s what usually happens! They’ll still be sorted by screen size, so finding a deal on your favorite TV should be simple.
Frequently Asked Questions
Of course, time and time again there will be important questions about televisions, especially if you decide to buy a new one. Below, we’ll introduce you to a handful of key Qs with our added two cents to help you make an informed purchase decision.
Which TVs does Digital Foundry recommend?
Truth be told, we’ve recommended a wide range of TVs in our list of best 4k gaming tvs, even though the list is a few months old. The fact remains that the likes of LG’s OLED series, whether the old C1s or the new C2s will be a great choice, as well as Samsung’s Neo QLED picks, for example.
What TV deals are we expecting?
As November rolls on and Black Friday looms, it only makes sense that more TV deals will start to appear. In terms of what we expect to see, it would make sense to see bigger discounts on high-end TVs from the big manufacturers – LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic. We’ve already started to see the likes of LG’s C2 line of TVs fall to new all-time lows at some retailers, so it makes sense that other newer TVs will see their first big discount around the Black Friday period.
