It feels like only yesterday we last delved into Black Friday TV deals, but with November fast approaching, you might be looking to get ahead of the curve. So, to help prepare you for the big event, we're here to paint a picture of what to expect from Black Friday 2023. Last year, we witnessed a bunch of big screen savings on panels by LG, Samsung, Hisense, and more, so if you've been holding out for the TV of your dreams to drop in price, you'll want to read on.
It's needless to say that Black Friday is the perfect time to pounce on the best gaming TV, as you'll likely pay less than MSRP. Same goes for all Black Friday gaming deals, but big screens in particular can fall dramatically in price. We're talking savings of over $1,000 on some of the priciest panels around, which could make all the difference if your dream display ideas are bound by budget constraints.
Of course, it's not just premium TVs that'll get the chop this Black Friday, as if last year's sale is anything to go by, there will be a variety of screens at different price points. Whether that means grabbing a screen for under $100 or an older 2022 flagship model for less is up to you, and we're here to help arm your living room with the right display when the time comes.
When will Black Friday TV deals begin?
Black Friday TV deals will this year fall on November 24th. Of course, as is usual, we'll see a bunch of deals coming in force that week, but we can still usually say that the best are kept for the day itself.
Such is the event nowadays however, we often see retailers go early with deals period that are weeks long, all in the name of Black Friday. That means you can pick up a great deal from basically October onwards so be on the lookout from then.
Where will the best Black Friday TV deals be?
When the time comes, we'll be stocking this page right here with the best Black Friday TV deals as we'll be keeping close tabs on everything as the event progresses. However, we all know it'll be the usual suspects playing the game, so here are the best links if you want to bookmark, check now, or go it alone in your search.

Black Friday TV deals 2023: what do we expect
Black Friday TV deals will be far-reaching, covering all the niches across the size, quality, and price spectrums.
And with another year under our belts, things will look even rosier. The factor of passing time means - along with generational gaps between a lot of TV models (not all, though) being quite small - there really are going to be some quality offerings from 2022, and maybe 2021, lines, as well as the most recent models.
Expect there to be plenty of action on the entry-level 4K TVs from the likes of Insignia and TCL, for example, as well as on Amazon Fire TVs. The 50-inch Omni model received its record lowest-ever price last Black Friday dropping by nearly $200 and has been on sale, again, in last fall's Prime event. We'd also advise keeping tabs on Hisense offers this year, as the A6BG was available for below $250 - an incredible price for a 43-inch 4K screen.
We'd also keep a close eye on LG's C-range and G-range of OLED TVs. Every year we see price cuts on these in the autumn and winter. Now that the LG OLED G3 has arrived, we fully expect older models to receive a nifty discount, and that includes the G1 and G2. You might even be able to grab a phenomenal model like the LG OLED C2 for well under £1,000 if you're in the UK, as it previously dropped to just £899 during Prime Day 2023.
It's also worth keeping a close eye on screen-tech offerings from 2022, the Samsung S95B and Sony A95K, which sport awesome QD-OLED tech. The latter dropped by a whopping $1,002 during last year's event, and we suspect similar discounts will pop up this year.
Is it better to wait for Black Friday to buy a TV?
The best time to pick up a new TV is arguably during Black Friday, but that's not to say you won't see great deals before and after the big event. In fact, you'll often find that big screens drop to their lowest price at random times, so it's always worth keeping an eye out for your desired panel. If you'd prefer deals to simply land on your lap, we'd suggest holding out for the annual sale. Otherwise, there's nothing stopping you picking up a discounted display right now.
Who has best Black Friday TV deals?
All the usual suspects should have Black Friday TV deals on offer come November, including Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. Sticking with well known retailers is a sure fire way to prevent any scams, but there's a chance smaller retailers will rise to the discount challenge. Your best bet is to revisit our hub when the time arises, as we'll help bring you all the biggest screen savings from across the internet.
Last year's best deals
Sceptre 32-inch HD TV |
$138 $98 at Walmart
Save $40 - The Sceptre 32-inch HD TV was a budget buy in every sense of the word but was a great solution for 1080p console gaming, or if you just needed a cheap TV for a second room or simply as an extra display.
TCL Class 3-Series HD TV | 32-inch |
$229.99 $138 at Amazon
Save $91 - If you were looking for a budget option, this was definitely worth considering in last year's TV sales. While it would never compete with some of the 4K, OLED giants elsewhere in the sales, at less than $140 (and its lowest-ever price) it was the perfect fit for smaller setups.
Samsung The Frame QLED 4K TV | 55-inch |
$1,499.99 $999.99 at Samsung
Save $500 - This model of QLED TV from Samsung is dubbed "The Frame" for its ability to turn into a digital art frame when in standby mode, and the fact that it can be easily mounted onto a wall. There was a huge 33% discount on the 55-inch model which represented good value.
LG OLED A1 48-inch OLED TV |
$1,299.99 $796.99 at Amazon
Save $503 - The LG OLED A1 had been steadily dropping its price for months last year - given it was from the 2021 lineup and a mid-range panel - so it was a little tricky to put an exact saving on this display, but this price offered great value.
Sony A95K QD-OLED 4K TV | 65-inch |
$3,999.99 $2,998 at Amazon
Save $1,002; lowest ever price - This incredible price was exactly that on the brilliant A95K - incredible. If you'd been holding out for a big discount on what was widely accepted as the best TV of 2022 then this more than $1000 discount was the one to go for.
Samsung QD-OLED S95B 4K TV | 55-inch |
$2,099.99 $1,449.99 at Samsung
Save $650 - This deal got you a huge $650 off one of the absolute best TVs of 2022. Along with the Sony A95K this screen broke new ground in TVs in 2022, and proved to be one of the most sought-after screens - and this was a fraction off the lowest-ever price too!
Samsung Q80B QLED 4K | 65-inch |
$1,199.99 $999.99 at Best Buy
Save $200 - Best Buy was offering a $200 saving on this excellent QLED TV from the 2022 lineup. Good enough on its own, but the bundles on offer made this even better: you could get a $520 reduction on a bundle with this TV that got you a Samsung soundbar with Dolby Atmos.
Last year's deals in the UK
Sony Bravia A80J 4K TV | 55-inch |
£1,399 £999 at John Lewis
Save £400 - Classed as 'reduced to clear' this was an excellent (and lowest ever) price for an excellent TV. Even though it was from the preivous previous year, this still had all the Sony OLED bells and whistles and specs to future-proof you for a good long while.
Samsung S95B QD-OLED 4K TV | 65-inch |
£2,399 £1,799 at Samsung
Save £600 - This was a huge discount on the largest size of the brand new quantum dot OLED TV from Samsung. The picture quality is almost literally peerless and it offered that beautiful colour quality and brightness Samsung panels are known for.
Sony A95K QD-OLED 4K TV | 65-inch |
£3,499 £2,795 at Box + FREE £50 e-voucher
Save £704; lowest-ever price - We know this awesome TV was available at most places online in the UK during the sales, but the best deal on the 55-incher we saw was this one at Box. You saved money, got a record-low price that's £100 lower than a price the previous week, and also bagged a 50-quid voucher!
Sony A95K QD-OLED 4K TV | 55-inch |
£2,699 £2,095 at Box + FREE £50 e-voucher
Save £604; another lowest ever price - A similar deal was on the larger 65-inch model where you could make the most of a lowest ever price, and also bag a neat £50 voucher. Just like the deal above, there was also a bonus £100 off compared to the same offer earlier this week.
Samsung Q80B 4K QLED | 55-inch |
£999 £789 at Samsung
Save £210 - This was a better-than-ever saving on a 2022 QLED model. 55-inch TVs can be a real sweet spot between affordability and a large screen size. This deal saved you £210 on a high-quality 55-inch panel, so in our opinion, was one of the best Black Friday Samsung TV deals.
Samsung QN90B 50-inch Neo QLED 4K TV | Free Galaxy Watch 5 |
£999 £899 at Samsung
Save £100 - It was only a small saving on the TV itself, but Samsung offered a great freebie here in the form of that Watch 5. Even if you didn't want the wearable you could shift that on to increase your effective saving on the TV itself.
Is it worth waiting for Black Friday TV deals?
Ah, the inevitable question of when to pull the trigger. But in reality, the sheer scale and allure of Black Friday TV deals mean that, yes, you should absolutely be waiting for the sales to arrive before committing to a new television. This is absolutely the best time of year to get a cracking TV for a greatly reduced price - the discounts are typically never deeper than Black Friday.
The small caveat to that is once we get into November we will see retailers going early with their Black Friday prices - if you can get this guaranteed (i.e. if it does go lower over the day itself then the retailer will pay you back the difference) then it might be a good idea to go just before the madness begins.
How much can I save with a Black Friday TV deal?
A great question! And the absolutely-not-a-copout answer is: it depends! You can see astronomical saving of up to 50% sometimes though these usually get quite specific, almost niche. Think of 75-inch (and larger) 8K TVs - though that's not to dismiss them as that would be great value. This epitomises the fact that the bigger they are, the harder they fall concept behind Black Friday TV deals: those with higher MSRPs often come down the furthest.
Away from that 'extreme' though, a lot more common discounts are going to be in the 20% (ish) range meaning a $500 TV could go to about $400 but a $2,000 TV could drop to an attractive $2,600 - or even push to the $2,500 at that point.
The best thing to do is to keep abreast of the price cuts as they happen to know exactly how much deals might change by, and to also make sure you're tracking prices too to have a more bird's eye view of somethings price.
