The best cheap TV deals in February 2018: 4K TVs for less

Cheap TVs and the best TV deals in the UK

Cheap TV deals are on our radar throughout the year as we check through the most reliable retailers to find you the finest bargains every week. 4K TVs have generally taken over nowadays and have come down in price much faster than HD TVs did.

Highlights this week include a 50-inch Ambilight TV for just £419. There's also a super cheap TV over at Tesco where you can get a 50-inch 4K TV for just £349 and we've found some cracking prices on increasingly large TVs too like a 60-inch Hisense for under £640.

Take a look at our carefully curated selection below. We've split the 4K TV deals into different size categories immediately after our pick for cheap TV deal of the week. Whatever your budget, we're sure we can find something for you. Towards the bottom of the page, you'll also find a few HD TV deals (non-4K models). When you compare prices though, you really don't have to pay much more at all to get a modern 4K TV instead.

Now's a great time to upgrade with a cheap 4K TV deal, especially with Netflix, Amazon, BBC and Sky all increasing their 4K content. Nowadays, pretty much every TV comes with Freeview (no more set-top boxes!) and also Smart TV functionality via your home internet - we'll be sure to mention it if they don't though.

Philips Ambilight TV deals

TechRadar's cheap TV deal of the week

Philips 50PUS6272 50-inch Ambilight HDR 4K TV | Now £419 | Argos
Oh my, that's the best price we've ever seen on this Ambilight TV released late last year. It's a super cheap TV deal with an incredible price for a 4K HDR screen of this size. The fact it's an Ambilight screen makes it even better as the TV emits coloured light (matching the colours on-screen) from the edges of the screen onto nearby walls which adds a real boost to scenes when watching in a darkened room. This is available at Amazon for the same price, but delivery is delayed for a while.

Hisense is dominating the market for low cost, high quality 4K TVs and is even managing to throw down some big discounts on the HDR-sporting models like this one too. You're also getting smart apps like iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon Prime. John Lewis is also offering a five year guarantee at no extra cost. It's the same price at Amazon, but without the extended guarantee, making this John Lewis deal the clear winner for us.

Toshiba 49U5766DB 49-inch smart 4K TV | Now £349 | Amazon
This is a very cheap TV for the 49-inch 4K range and the lack of a HDR screen could be the reason why. For us, we think HDR is pretty important, especially for forwards-facing gaming and top-end streaming services. So maybe take a look at some of the other choices on this page before settling on this one. We've seen 49-inch HDR models for £50 more.
View Deal

Hisense H49N5500UK 49-inch Smart HDR 4K TV | Now £399 | Very
At £399 this deal caught our eye as a cheap TV measuring 49-inches for well under £500. Hisense is a budget specialist in these parts and this is a great price considering you're getting a HDR 4K display.

Hisense H49N6600 49-inch curved smart 4K TV | Now £399 | AO.com
When looking for a cheap TV, you may think curved screens aren't going to be in the mix. They're nowhere near as expensive as they used to be though and Hisense has an absolute beauty at AO.com for under £400.

View Deal

Philips 50PUS6162 50-inch 4K HDR TV | Now £389 | Amazon
Very is currently the cheapest around for this popular Philips TV. Like we keep saying though, any known-brand 4K TV going for under £500 is always going to catch our eye. Especially when it also has a HDR (High Dynamic Range) display and a fleet of smart TV apps built-in.
