Best 24in to 40in Black Friday TV deals
Samsung QE32LS03TCUXXU the frame 32in QLED smart TV: Was £599, now £341.10, Amazon.co.uk
Exclusive to Samsung, the frame is designed to blend into the background when not in use and looks at its absolute best when mounted flush to a wall, preferably with some clever wire-disguising. It uses light sensors to detect ambient conditions and gently adjusts the brightness and temperature of the artwork displayed on screen to create the impression of a painting. Per pixel QLED lighting means the screen can be completely black in a dark room, enhancing the illusion when the TV is off and creating impressive, immersive contrast when used for watching TV and movies.
Cello ZF0204 40in full HD: Was £319.99, now £259.99, Amazon.co.uk
A British-made TV built in Durham, this modest 40in Cello set is the go-to choice for UK shoppers who prefer to buy local. The built-in DVD player is a rare feature and puts this telly ahead of the pack for anyone with a library of classic box sets, while the modest 1080p resolution is sharp enough for the built-in Freeview channels.
43in to 48in Black Friday TV deals
Toshiba 43UL2163DBC 43in 4K ultra HD, HDR, freeview play, smart TV: Was £379, now £279, Very.co.uk
This 43in 4K Toshiba set has dropped in price by £100, and comes with a set of premium features such as smart upscaling to make older, standard-definition content appear sharper. For a limited time Very is also offering £15 off the Sanus wall mount bracket when bought with this TV. This is a very popular deal, so expect to wait until late December or early January for delivery.
Philips 43PUS8536 43in smart ambilight 4K ultra HD android TV: Was £649, now £519, Ao.com
There’s £130 off this 43in Philips TV with built-in ambilight, a cinematic effect that uses a set of embedded lights to create an immersive show surrounding the TV during movies and while playing games. Google Assistant is baked into the user interface too, allowing you to use this 4K TV as the centre of your smart-home system.
Samsung 2021 43 inch AU7100 UHD 4K HDR smart TV: Was £499, now £359, Very.co.uk
This entry-level Samsung TV comes equipped with the brand’s 4K upscaling technology and is powered by its “crystal” processor. The HDR10+ means that you should get bright and vivid colours – a great bonus for the small price tag – plus you can get your fix of Netflix, iPlayer and live TV all from the same hub. Buy before 16 November and you can also get a £100 discount on the Samsung A430 soundbar (£229, Very.co.uk) at checkout.
LG OLED C1 48in 4K HDMI 2.1 smart TV with Dolby vision IQ: Was £1,399, now £899, Very.co.uk
The LG OLED48C14LB is relatively compact for an OLED TV at “just” 48in. However, thanks to the use of top-end OLED panel technology and Dolby Atmos tuned speakers, it still delivers a rich and cinematic viewing experience. It’d be the ideal choice for anyone with a small flat or who doesn’t want the TV to dominate the living space like some other OLED behemoths in this list. Right now at Very there’s a £500 discount.
50in Black Friday TV deals
Samsung QE50Q6AAUXXU 50in smart 4K TV: Was £849, now £599, Currys.co.uk
Currys has £250 off this 50in Samsung TV for Black Friday. The QE50 uses the brand’s own QLED display technology and has support for all of the top 4K video standards, including HDR10+ and HLG. There’s also access to all of your favourite TV streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon and Apple, plus support for voice control with Alexa, Google Assistant and Samsung’s own Bixby system. We think this is a great option for those who want a fully-fledged 4K smart TV, but without a screen so big it takes over the living room.
Hisense QLED 50in 4K UHD HDR smart TV: Was £649, now £389, Studio.co.uk
Here’s a £260 saving on a 50in smart TV from Hisense – that’s a whopping 40 per cent off.

What is Cyber Monday?
In retail, Cyber Monday is the name given to the Monday after Thanksgiving Day in the United States. The name was coined in 2005 when online stores noticed a huge increase in sales following the Black Friday shopping event. This year, it falls on Monday 29 November.
Traditionally, Black Friday described a physical retail event while Cyber Monday focused on online deals, though the two have now merged into a single, four-day shopping spree. In 2020, Cyber Monday was the largest online shopping day in US history, generating $10.7bn (£7.7bn) in sales.
