(Image credit: Future)

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are now officially over, with many retailers ending their sales at the same time. However, there are still some opportunities to save on quality home screens while sales or stocks last.

Over BFCM we found savings on some excellent options that are part of our best TVs roundup, with some savings on these outstanding TVs still lingering around here and there. So whether you're after a Samsung, LG, Sony or a budget TCL, you can still shop around and hope to find a saving on a premium TV.

Below we've included the best deals that are still live, with each accurate and available as at time of writing - but it's worth noting that these deals could end at any time.

Black Friday TV deals: top retailers

The best Black Friday TV deals

50 to 60-inch TVs

TCL 55-inch C835 Mini-LED TV

TCL 55-inch C835 Mini-LED TV | AU$1,999 AU$1,260 at Appliance Central (save AU$739)

A surprise package, this TCL Mini-LED marvel is one of our picks for the best TVs on the market with its performance specs combined with the price range elevating its value to dynamite levels. And for the post-Black Friday deals, you can still snag this 55-inch C835 at an even higher value price of just AU$1,260 thanks to this saving from Appliance Central.

Sony 55-inch A80J Bravia XR OLED TV

Sony 55-inch A80J Bravia XR OLED TV | AU$2,495 AU$1,785 at Sony AU eBay (save AU$710 with code)

While not quite boasting the full array of performance attributes found in Sony's top-range OLED offerings, the A80J arguably offers even greater value when considering the features it does have at its asking price. With dazzling display, dynamic audio and competitive gaming compatibility features, the A80J lands a handy discount for Black Friday bringing it down by AU$710.

Samsung 55-inch QN85B Neo QLED TV

Samsung 55-inch QN85B Neo QLED TV | AU$2,695 AU$1,980 at Appliance Central (save AU$715)

Though billing itself as a Neo QLED TV, the Samsung QN85B is in reality a Mini-LED TV. That means brightness levels here gain a slight boost, while lacking the overall performance features of OLED or top-range QLED TVs. It doesn't quite keep up with the top TVs but carries plenty of value at its price regardless.

Also available at a discount for the 85-inch model.

Sony Bravia 50-inch X75K 4K Ultra HD HDR LED Smart TV

Sony Bravia 50-inch X75K 4K Ultra HD HDR LED Smart TV | AU$1,095 AU$895 at Amazon (save AU$200)

While not one of Sony's top-range TV offerings, the Sony Bravia X75K still has enough of Sony's quality performance features to make it worth considering at this price. As a 4K TV with Motionflow XR capabilities, it's a solid option to pair up with a gaming console at more of a budget-friendly price if that's what you're in the market for. Depending on stock levels (which have been flying out the door) you can find discounts on this one in other sizes too.

60 to 70-inch TVs

LG CS 65-inch Self Lit OLED Smart TV
Great Deal

LG CS 65-inch Self Lit OLED Smart TV | AU$3,695 AU$2,749 at PowerlandAU eBay (save AU$946 with code) 

Having only recently been released on to the market, LG's budget-friendly alternative to their market best C2 range features most of the premium features found in LG's top-range C2 but at a much friendlier price. This screen was a bit cheaper during the actual Black Friday sales period, but just under AU$1,000 off is still a good saving. 

Find discounts on other sizes in the new, high-value CS range:

55-inch AU$2,695 AU$1,989 (save AU$706 with code)
77-inch AU$5,795 AU$4,649 (save AU$1,146 with code)

Samsung S95B 65-inch OLED TV

Samsung S95B 65-inch OLED TV | AU$4,495 AU$3,295 at The Good Guys (save AU$1,200)

The Samsung S95B is one dynamite TV option, with the Quantum Dot OLED technology featured within further elevating the already extraordinary picture quality and performance of OLED TVs. Gamers will also love the 4K/120Hz and variable refresh rate support boosting game performance on screen. If you'd rather buy direct, Samsung's also got this one discounted to AU$3,299.

Also worth note: the smaller 55-inch S95B is available at the same AU$1,200 discount (bringing it down to AU$2,295) via Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi and Samsung (buying direct will cost you AU$4 more).

Samsung 65-inch The Frame QLED 4K Smart TV

Samsung 65-inch The Frame QLED 4K Smart TV | AU$2,595 AU$2,090 at Appliance Central (save AU$505)

If you're hoping to add screen and sound performance to your living room without sacrificing on the decor, Samsung's Frame TV range is built specifically with you in mind. Quantum Dot technology of the QLED elevates colours and contrast, while in built upfiring speakers with True Dolby Atmos support offer quality sound. And now you can get a saving of over AU$500 on this 65-inch model.

Discounts also apply to other sizes:
32-inch AU$795 AU$620 (save AU$175)
43-inch AU$1,495 AU$1,220 (save AU$275)
50-inch AU$2,095 AU$1,480 (save AU$615)
55-inch AU$2,095 AU$1,360 (save AU$735)
75-inch AU$3,495 AU$2,350 (save AU$1,145)
85-inch AU$5,295 AU$3,380 (save AU$1,915)

70 to 80-inch TVs

TCL 75-inch C735 QLED TV
Ripper Saving

TCL 75-inch C735 QLED TV | AU$2,799 AU$1,690 at Appliance Central (save AU$1,109)

While it might be a generation behind the latest TCL C*35 model (picked out as one of the best TVs you can buy), the TCL C735 still remains one of the best screens you can buy within its price range. With Quantum Dot technology offering vibrant, dynamic colours, HDR10+ elevating overall picture capability, quality Dolby Atmos audio and very solid gaming support features, this TV at this price is extremely tempting.

Savings also on offer for the 55-inch screen.

Sony A80K Bravia XR 77-inch OLED TV

Sony A80K Bravia XR 77-inch OLED TV | AU$6,995 AU$5,488 at JB Hi-Fi (save AU$1,507)

Comfortably one of the best mid-range OLED TVs on the market right now, the Sony A80K might not offer all of the premium features found in the truly top of the range TVs, but features enough to make the price solid value. That's especially true thanks to this Black Friday saving.

You'll also find savings on the A80K in other sizes:
Sony A80K 65-inch AU$3,795 AU$2,995 (save AU$800)
Sony A80K 55-inch AU$2,795 AU$2,595 (save AU$200)

Samsung 75-inch QN90B 4K UHD Neo QLED TV |
Great deal

Samsung 75-inch QN90B 4K UHD Neo QLED TV | AU$4,995 AU$3,488 (save AU$1,507)

Samsung's top 4K TV in Australia gets a massive discount ahead of Black Friday, with the 75-inch model QN90B discounted by a bonkers AU$1,507! Offering premium, dynamic picture quality with exceptional audio to match, this is one Black Friday deal worth consideration.

Deals also on offer in the 50-inch and 43-inch sizes.

80 to 86-inch TVs

Samsung 85-inch Series 8 BU8000 UHD 4K Smart TV

Samsung 85-inch Series 8 BU8000 UHD 4K Smart TV | AU$2,995 AU$1,869 at PowerlandAU eBay (save AU$1,126)

Firmly placed as an entry-level smart TV with the price tag to match, the Samsung BU8000 still offers just enough to elevate it above most other TVs in the same price range, primarily through the Dynamic Crystal Colour and overall quality of the display. And you can still save AU$1,226 on this 85-inch home screen.

Discounts apply to most other screen sizes in the BU8000 range:
43-inch AU$899 AU$849 (save AU$50)
50-inch AU$999 AU$809 (save AU$90)
55-inch AU$1,199 AU$1,079 (save AU$120)
75-inch AU$1,999 AU$1,899 (save AU$100)

Sony X85K 85-inch TV

Sony X85K 85-inch TV | AU$4,995 AU$3,685 at JB Hi-Fi (save AU$1,310)

In the market for real estate? Consider this mammoth 85-inch Sony TV, with performance specs on the higher end of mid-range including gaming-friendly ALLM and VRR features. Picture quality and dynamism here is less strong than top-range OLED TVs, but for the price and at this size it's at least food for thought. You can also save AU$1,000 on the 75-inch Sony X85K if this one is too big for you.

LG NANO91 86-inch NanoCell 4K Smart TV w/ AI ThinQ
Huge Saving

LG NANO91 86-inch NanoCell 4K Smart TV w/ AI ThinQ | AU$4,395 AU$3,360 at Appliance Central (save AU$1,035)

A touch pricier than the NANO86 (see below) with performance and discount to match, LG's NANO91 is a 4K TV offering exceptional detail and liveliness in its picture quality, where this model truly shines. Like the NANO86 it's also a dream for gamers, with Variable Refresh Rate, ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) on offer to boost the experience of next-gen gaming. And for its 86-inch screen you'll find a discount here of over AU$1K which is quite handy indeed!

LG NANO86 86-inch NanoCell Smart 4K TV w/ AI ThinQ

LG NANO86 86-inch NanoCell Smart 4K TV w/ AI ThinQ | AU$3,995 AU$2,798 at Appliance Central (save AU$1,197)

Gamers, this one's for you. If you were looking for a capable 4K TV to pair with your next-gen console, boasting features such as Variable Refresh Rate, 4K at 120Hz refresh rates and Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM), the LG NANO86 was already a solid option. That's without considering this massive discount on the enormous 86-inch screen model courtesy of Appliance Central.

Soundbars and Home Theatre

Samsung HW-Q930B Soundbar

Samsung HW-Q930B Soundbar | AU$1,499 AU$745 at Appliance Central (save AU$754)

As one of our favourite soundbars on the market, we've been hoping to see a quality saving pop up for this Samsung powerhouse, but we never expected to see a saving like this one! If you act quickly now you can save over half price on this home cinema solution, bringing True Dolby Atmos support and a generous surround sound package to your home for a steal!

Samsung HW-Q990B Home Theatre System

Samsung HW-Q990B Home Theatre System | AU$2,099 AU$1,225 at Appliance Central (save AU$874)

It's a little unfair to refer to this one as just a 'soundbar', despite it managing to find its way into our list of best soundbars. As you might expect at its price point, the Samsung HW-Q990B is a full home theatre solution with arguably the best high-end Dolby Atmos performance of any soundbar package on the market. And it still has its Black Friday saving of over AU$870.

TCL TS8132 Soundbar

TCL TS8132 Soundbar | AU$599 AU$365 at Appliance Central (save AU$234)

One of the best soundbars available outside of the usual suspects, the TCL TS8132 shines in offering as much 'oomph' with music as it does with other sources of sound, something many of its competitors fall short with. For that reason if you're needing a flexible soundbar option but don't want to sacrifice too much in overall quality, this deal is for you.

Black Friday TV deals: our predictions

The Black Friday TV deals we expect to see in 2022

So what Black Friday TV deals do we expect to see at this year's sale? Outside of sales events this year, it isn't the kindest retail market for big-ticket discretionary items like TVs and retailers would know it. That's likely to be good news for bargain hunters in 2022, as businesses will be desperate to find ways to convince consumers to buy a new TV and serious savings are the safest place to start.

So, if you've been holding out for a brand new premium OLED or QLED TV, or eyeing off a neat Mini-LED beast, chances are you'll have plenty of deals to choose from between November 25-28.

To give us a slight idea of what we might be able to expect, let's take a look at some of the hottest discounts we saw last year for Black Friday 2021.

  • Samsung 75-Inch QN800A 8K Neo QLED TV | AU$6,495 RRP AU$4,388 via The Good Guys (saving of AU$2,107)

One of the best TV deals to emerge in the lead up to Black Friday last year, The Good Guys lived up to its name by offering this beast of an 8K TV at a discount greater than AU$2,000.

8K TVs aren't exactly front of mind for a lot of consumers right now and there's reason to think they might not be the most cost-effective options, but a 32% saving like this one could do a lot to convince anybody to jump on board the burgeoning technology.

  • TCL 75-inch C825 4K Mini LED Android TV | AU$4,499 RRP AU$2,995 via The Good Guys (saving of AU$1,504)

The Good Guys again came through with one of Black Friday 2021's hottest TV deals, slashing the price of this Mini-LED marvel. 2022's update to this TCL model is already available at a more attractive price point than its predecessor and is counted as one of our best TVs money can buy right now.

You can already find the 75-inch version of the updated C835 with an AU$500 discount via JB Hi-Fi and we expect that even better deals for the surprise package that is TCL's latest Mini-LED TV could land when Black Friday comes around.

  • Philips 804 55-inch OLED 4K TV | AU$3,499 AU$1,595 via Amazon (saving of AU$1,904)

Amazon is known for a lot of things, but TVs typically aren't one. That became a thing of the past in rather spectacular fashion during last year's Black Friday sales thanks to this hot deal. Philips also might not be best known for its TVs, but has gained a lot of ground recently thanks to the kind of quality found in this OLED 4K TV.

Discounted here to less than half price, by the numbers alone this was one of 2021's hottest Black Friday TV deals. Our prediction? Don't expect that this will be the last you see of both Amazon and Philips when it comes to super savings around Black Friday time.

Black Friday FAQs

When will the best Black Friday TV deals start in 2022?

When will we start to see official Black Friday TV deals? Black Friday proper falls on November 25 this year, however, we could start to see sales pop up well before that. This varies from retailer to retailer as they try to outdo each other with earlier and earlier sales, but the best deals typically happen between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But keep a lookout from about a week ahead of the actual Black Friday date.

Where are the best places to find Black Friday TV deals?

In Australia, you'll find the best Black Friday TV deals from many of the usual brick and mortar retailers, along with several reliable online stores. Discounts will usually consist of hundreds of dollars off the usual RRP, while some models (most often clearance stock from last year) will even get slashed by thousands.

In our experience, you can count on retailers like JB Hi-FI, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman, Appliance Central, Appliances Online, The Good Guys and Billy Guyatts having fantastic TV deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

How can I get the best Black Friday TV deals?

Buying a TV on Black Friday can be stressful: there are hundreds, if not thousands, of deals to sift through, and it can be difficult to know which offers are genuinely good... and which aren't.

Our team will also be sorting through all the Black Friday TV deals to bring you the very best offers on this page. It's also worth doing your homework ahead of time so you can score the best TV at the lowest price available. You should also have an idea of what size and features you're looking for to help narrow down your decision when shopping for Black Friday TV deals.

Over the years, we've found that many of the best value deals tend to appear the closer you get to the actual Black Friday weekend, especially on more expensive products – like TVs – where retailers could still make a profit while knocking a hefty amount off the price.

At last year's Black Friday sale, budget TVs were top sellers, with brands like Hisense and TCL offering stunningly low prices on big-screen 4K TVs. The only problem was stock was limited, and the most popular deals sold out rather quickly. We recommend keeping an eye out for Black Friday ads and bookmarking this page as we'll be rounding up all the best Black Friday TV deals here as soon as they launch.

What about Cyber Monday – will there be better TV deals than on Black Friday?

Cyber Monday kicks off on the first Monday after Black Friday, falling on November 28 this year. You'd be forgiven for thinking all the deals would be exhausted over Black Friday (which typically extends throughout November these days), but Cyber Monday is still a great time to save money on the tech you want. 

We'd recommend going for the best Black Friday TV deals rather than waiting for Cyber Monday, but if you don't find what you're looking for, it's a great second chance to find a discounted TV. 

Essentially, any online store is worth keeping an eye on over Cyber Monday; after all, it's a sales event dedicated to online shopping.
