Best Black Friday TV deals for 2020: we’ve handpicked great offers on good TVs

TVs are one of the most popular purchases on Black Friday – these are some of the best deals we've found

Best Black Friday TV deals for 2020: we’ve handpicked great offers on good TVs

Black Friday is synonymous with cheap TVs. Every retailer is putting them on sale and we’ve sifted through them to find the best deals on 4K TVs, OLED TVs, QLED TVs and LCD TVs.

We don’t just pick TVs with big discounts: we choose models that scored well in our tests. But we still recommend checking the reviews before you buy, to make sure the TV is right for you.

Retailers know the importance of driving sales at this time of year, and so do manufacturers, which is why LG and Samsung have both released Black Friday TV ranges. Find out more about them by clicking on the links below.


You can get a discount on just about anything on Black Friday, so take a look at our expert pick of all the Best Black Friday deals.


Best Black Friday TV deals

We’ve singled out some of the very best deals we’ve come across, ranked by the size of each TV.

LG 43UN73006LC – currently £329, was £349 (6% off according to the retailer)

LG 43UN73006LC

We liked: sharp picture

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Screen size: 43-inch

Yes £20 isn’t the biggest discount ever, but this 43-incher from LG was pretty cheap to start with. It’s similar to the TV below, so it’s a good option if you don’t want a white TV.

LG 43UN73906LE – currently £329

LG 43UN73906LE

We liked: detailed picture

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Screen size: 43-inch

Argos’ website doesn’t say what this TV cost before Black Friday, but we know equivalent sets from LG are usually around £399; that’s almost 25% more expensive. It’s one of your few picks if you want a white TV, too.

The 73906 is one of the more basic LG TVs, but we still thought the picture was impressively crisp.

LG 49NANO816NA – was £599, now £479 (20% off according to the retailer)

LG 49NANO816NA

We liked: detailed picture

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Size: 49-inch

LG’s mid to high-end TVs still have liquid crystal displays (LCD), but there’s an extra later of nanocells designed to filter out impure colours for a more natural, lifelike picture.

LG is the only manufacturer currently making TVs with this extra layer of nanocells, and you’ll only find this 49-incher at Currys PC World.

(A recent Which? investigation into Currys PC World suggests the firm has an issue with how it handles complaints about faulty products. So do consider this before making a purchase.)

Samsung UE50TU8507 – was £599, now £449 (25% off according to the retailer)

Samsung UE50TU8507

We liked: nice HD picture

We didn’t like: sound lacking in excitement

Size: 50-inch

One of Samsung’s cheapest 50-inch 4K TVs, the UE50TU8507 – exclusive to Currys – is one of the most popular reviews on which.co.uk. There are very similar models available from other retailers, such as the UE50TU8500, for example, which is essentially the same TV but with a slightly different design.

We were seriously impressed with the HD picture of the UE50TU8507; HD is the most common resolution in which broadcast TV and streaming service shows are made.

LG 55UN80006LA – was £599, now £499 (20% off according to the retailer)

LG 55UN80006LA

We liked: good HDR picture

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Size: 55-inch

This LCD set doesn’t have a nanocell layer like LG’s pricier ranges do, but we still thought it was pretty good, particularly the 4K and HDR picture.

Do you need to spend a bit more for Best Buy quality though, and how vital are those nanocells that this model lacks?

LG 55NANO906NA – was £899, now £799 (11% off according to the retailer)

LG 55NANO906NA

We liked: fantastic remote and operating system

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Screen size: 55-inch

OLEDs aside this is one of LG’s most high-end 2020 sets and now it costs way under £1,000 – not bad considering it was £1,299 when it launched in May.

The Nanocell display works the same as LCD TVs, but can filter out impure colours for a more natural image. That’s the theory anyway, some Nanocell sets are better at it than others.

LG 55UN73006LA – was £479, now £429 (8% off according to the retailer)

LG 55UN73006LA

We liked: rich sound

We didn’t like: missing several popular catch-up apps

Size: 55-inch

Considering its place in LG’s 2020 TV pecking order we were pleasantly surprised by how good the 7300 sounded. It has one of the best operating systems, too, so it’s a breeze to use.

It’s pricey high-end TVs that tend to get the discounts, but this cheaper one is available for almost 10% off and there’s a five year warranty from John Lewis.

LG OLED55CX6LA – was £1,599, now £1,299 (19% off according to the retailer)

LG OLED55CX5LB

We liked: brilliant contrast

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Size: 55-inch

OLEDs are as synonymous with quality as TVs are with Black Friday, but they are expensive (even on Black Friday) and there are plenty of options from LG as well as Panasonic and Sony.

LG is responsible for the popularity of OLEDs though – it was the first introduce them to the market – but does that extra experience make its OLEDs the best?

This particular OLED is a Currys exclusive, but you can also get the OLED55CX5LB, which is the same TV with a different design.

Sony KD55A8BU – was £1,699, now £1,299 (24% off according to the retailer)

Sony KD55A8BU

We liked: nicely balanced sound

We didn’t like: more fiddly to use than rival TVs

Screen size: 55-inch

We mentioned LG’s OLED rivals earlier and here’s one of them. Sony’s premier 4K TV has the X1 Ultimate processor, which should give better picture quality than any chip that Sony has made before, coupled with audio technology that vibrates the screen to create sound.

Is it the best OLED though or should you stick with LG?

Sony KD55XH9505BU – was £1,199, now £999 (17% off according to the retailer)

Sony KD55XH9505BU

We liked: strong 4K picture

We disliked: unbalanced sound

Screen size: 55-inch

From one high-end Sony TV to another – but this one has an LCD screen rather than an OLED one. The 9505 is Sony’s top-tier 4K LCD for 2020, and when it launched it was £1,599. Now it’s more than a third cheaper, but high-end doesn’t always mean high quality.

Samsung QE65Q80T – was £1,999, now £1,299 (35% off according to the retailer)

Samsung qe65q80t

We liked: fantastic sound

We didn’t like: colours can look unnatural

Size: 65-inch

This big screen 65-inch set is one of Samsung’s most high-end 4K TVs for 2020. It’s packed with cutting-edge tech, including HDR10+ for improved contrast control in HDR content, and a new positional sound feature that makes audio come from different parts of the screen for a more natural effect.

QLED sets have one clear rival, and that’s OLEDs. There are plenty of options from LG, Panasonic and Sony, so check our review to see if the Q80T is your best option.

LG 65NANO866NA – was £949, now £849 (11% off according to the retailer)

LG 65NANO866NA

We liked: lots of detail

We didn’t like: missing several catch-up apps

Screen size: 65-inch

One of the cheaper 65-inch TVs we’ve seen on offer is this Nanocell TV from LG. The extra layer of nanocells are designed to increase the accuracy of colours by filtering out impure ones and it’s easy to mark these TVs out by the ‘NANO’ in the model name.

We easily picked out detail on this mammoth screen and we enjoyed the picture at all resolutions.

Samsung QE65Q60T – was £1,199 now, now £899 (25% off according to the retailer)

Samsung QE65Q60T

We liked: nicely balanced sound

We didn’t like: doesn’t make the most of HDR

Screen size: 65-inch

It’s from Samsung’s cheapest QLED range and has a handsome 25% discount. The hefty screen has an extra layer of quantum dots that should create more vibrant colours.

It has nice sound and some interesting features that are unique to QLEDs, you can read more about those in our review.

Our top tips for buying the best TV

Whether you’re keen to buy a new TV before the week is out, or you’re happy to bide your time and wait for future sales, these tips will steer you right when choosing a new TV.

Size – picking the right size TV for your room is one of the most important decisions. Our TV size tool will tell you how big a screen you need based on how far you sit from it. Our research has found that 49 and 50-inch sets tend to be right for most households, but you may be better with a bigger or smaller one.

Screen – LCD, Nanocell, LED, QLED, OLED, there are plenty of different screen types to go for, but don’t assume that one will be better than any other. OLEDs tend to have better contrast than LCD models, but contrast isn’t everything. We’ve tested LCD TVs that beat OLEDs and QLEDs, so don’t dismiss any screen type on your quest for the best TV.

When to buy – we find that TVs often stay at their Black Friday price after the day and there’s always the January sales right around the corner. So don’t rush into buying a TV you’re not sure about just because you’re worried the price will skyrocket a few days later.
