The best TV deals in August in the UK for 4K, OLED, QLED and HDR smart TVs including discounts on Sony and Samsung from Amazon, John Lewis en meer
Considering a TV upgrade? Whether you’re after a wider screen or sharper picture quality, we’ve pulled together some of the best discounts on big-brand TVs this August.
If you’re not quite sure which type of TV is right for you, keep in mind that bigger doesn’t always mean better. You can find great bargains on 1080p (or Full HD) televisions, but while that resolution will be supported for years to come, 4K displays (or Ultra HD) are now becoming standard. They’re also cheaper than you might think – you can find decent 4K televisions for well under £1,000.
OLED and QLED TVs are the cutting edge, using per-pixel or regional backlighting to produce excellent contrast and darker blacks, but they’re expensive. LCD is the entry-level panel technology, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that means low-quality. The best LCD TVs look far better than the cheapest LED TVs.
Also consider image processing features: these reduce motion blur and dynamically adjust contrast for the best possible picture. Fast refresh rates can greatly improve the look of football games and other fast-moving sports. Upscaling – how a 4K television interprets and displays standard definition content – is important too. Bad upscaling can make older programmes look blurry and woozy.
All of the TVs in our list are 4K. You can buy 8K televisions, which do look noticeably sharper on very large sets, but the technology is in its infancy and still exorbitantly expensive. There are also currently no broadcasts in 8K, so you wouldn’t gain any additional fidelity while watching Coronation Street. Most screens also offer HDR – high dynamic range – which enables a TV to show detail in dark shadows and bright highlights at the same time.
Whether you’re after a bargain 55-inch TV for the family or a supersize glossy 75-inch TV deal to stream your favourite shows in all their glory, here’s our pick of the top TV offers you can snap up this month.
