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

tv deals cheap tv

Summer is a great time of year to find cheap TV deals as retailers love to slash prices while the sun's shining. And when the British rain inevitably arrives, you'll be glad to have shiny new TV at home.

We keep our eye on the latest deals throughout the year, so we're poised to find you the best price whenever the need to replace your old TV arises. And we're fully behind the 4K TV movement seeing as prices have dropped nicely, meaning you're not saving much money at all by opting for a standard HD TV. Take a look at the prices below and you'll see what we mean.

Select highlights for the best cheap TVs this week include wide range of fantastic offers where you can get a massive 60-inch 4K HDR TV from AO.com for £649. Another cheap TV that caught our eye was a 50-inch 4K model for a tiny £349. There's a 43-inch 4K TV starting from as low as just £249 too. Retailers like Currys, Argos, AO and ebuyer are really stepping things up now for the summer sales. These really are the best prices we've seen all year.

Take a look at our carefully curated extensive 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. If you need a new TV, we'd go for a 4K one as older outdated HD TVs aren't that much cheaper at all nowadays and most stores are clearing them out.

Now's a great time to upgrade with a cheap 4K TV deal, especially with Netflix, Amazon, BBC and Sky TV 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.

Hisense cheap tv deals

TechRadar's cheap TV deal of the week

An unbelievable price for a 60-inch TV with smart features and a 4K HDR display. This was originally an already-decent £799, so we're surprised to see the price go this low. You only have to look at the other prices in the size category to see what a huge saving this Hisense TV deal provides even before today's discount.

Cheap TV deals (40-49 inch)

Toshiba 43U5766DB 43-inch Smart 4K TV | £249.97 | Currys
Yes, you really can get a 43-inch 4K Smart TV for under £250. There's no HDR though, so you're not quite getting the full-on next-gen experience here. In all honesty, we'd be tempted to spend a bit more on another model, especially if you've got 4K HDR content lined up via a PS4 Pro, Xbox One X or the top options on Amazon Prime and Netflix streaming services. Just want a large basic 4K TV with smart functions built-in though? This'll do you just fine.
