The Black Friday TV deals have already started, with retailers slashing prices weeks before the sales weekend officially starts on November 29, which is set to run through Cyber Monday into early December too.
Whether you're looking for a state-of-the-art 8K QLED TV, or budget-friendly OLED to binge watch your favorite Netflix series on, there's sure to be a brilliant Black Friday TV price drop for you to take advantage of.
We've already seen a host of great Black Friday TV deals – including a number of Philips Ambilight TVs seeing half-price discounts and some notable price-cuts over at Best Buy in the US. But things are just warming up.
In the UK, EE has blown other deals out of the water by offering a free 43-inch Toshiba 4K TV when you buy a Samsung or Huawei handset, while a brilliant Currys deal sees the LG E9 65-inch OLED get a stunning £1000 price cut.
TV brands will start cutting the price on new sets to keep up sales momentum, while retailers will drop the RRP on older TVs before their 2020 replacements roll into the warehouse – and the winner is you, dear viewer.
With more and more retailers participating every year, you can expect to find Black Friday deals from the likes of Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and more – and with all those deals to sift through, we'll be doing the hard work for you, scouring the web and updating this article with the best Black Friday TV deals we can find.

When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019?
Traditionally, Black Friday is the first Friday immediately after Thanksgiving in the US, when retailers begin the holiday shopping season.
This means that Black Friday 2019 will officially start on November 29.
Cyber Monday is the first Monday following Black Friday, and this year falls on December 2nd.
As with past years, we're expecting the deals to start flooding in long before this, so it's a good idea to bookmark this page (along with our best Black Friday deals hub), and keep checking back throughout October and November.
Where can I find the best Black Friday TV deals?
Lots of different retailers will be participating in Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year. Some of the best deals will be found at Amazon, which typically stretch their sales window across the entire week preceding Black Friday.
While many of these retailers will begin discounting their products throughout November, it's worth bearing in mind that discounts can change as the month progresses.
Over the years, we've found that many of the best value deals tend to appear later in the month, on more expensive products – like TVs – where retailers could still make a profit while knocking a hefty amount off the price. (Supermarket TVs are often cheap to start with, so make sure you are getting a good discount on the original RRP.)
In the meantime, make sure you check out our round up of the best cheap TV sales and 4K TV deals – there are already some great bargains to be had.
Black Friday TV deals: what to expect
TVs are notorious for getting heavy discounts around Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and there's usually something for everyone – whether you're looking for top-end Samsung QLED or a wallet-friendly 4K display.
It's not unusual to see discounts on LG's OLED range, and with OLED technology dropping in price every year, you could be looking at a real bargain come Black Friday.
You shouldn't discount LED TV's though; slightly cheaper than QLED and OLED models, you can get a 65-inch 4K HDR smart TV for less than $900 in some cases.
Go even further down the rabbit hole of budget TVs, and you might even find sub-$100 prices for Full HD 40-inch sets, as we saw in 2018 – even if the quality doesn't match 4K sets, these bargain TVs could make a fantastic addition to your kitchen or bedroom.

How can I get the best Black Friday TV deals?
Black Friday and Cyber Monday can be stressful; after all, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of deals to sift through, and it can be difficult to know which deals are best for you.
So, it's worth doing your homework ahead of time – that means checking out the retailers you think you might buy from come November, and looking out for any artificially inflated prices.
Some retailers up price from August through to October to make their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals seem better than they actually are – and this is particularly prevalent with TV deals.
As much as you can, you should try to be flexible, too. Got your heart set on a Samsung UHD TV? Instead of memorizing the catalogue number, identify the features that really matter to you, so when you see a better deal on an LG UHD TV, you won't miss out on a fantastic discount.
It's also well worth bookmarking this page, as well as our main Black Friday deals page – we'll be scouring the web for the very best tech deals, sifting through all the rubbish ones so you don't have to.
What about Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday kicks off on the first Monday after Black Friday, falling on December 2 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 time to find discounted TVs.
Essentially, any online store is worth keeping an eye on over Cyber Monday; after all, it's a sales event dedicated to online shopping.
