What is Black Friday?

The concept of Black Friday sales originated in the USA, with the shopping event taking place on the day after Thanksgiving Day. This pre-Christmas shopping bonanza has now well and truly taken off on this side of the pond, with most UK retailers now jumping on the bandwagon.

And for consumers, that's largely a good thing - even if it does involve plenty of clicking and, potentially, waiting in virtual queues in order to bag a bargain.

We will aim to make it a little easier for you by delivering a comprehensive list of TV, hi-fi and home cinema offers from all the retailers taking part. Almost every category was catered for last year and you can expect more of the same in 2016.

Why is it called Black Friday? It's up for debate. The name either came from the fact the popularity of the shopping day caused widespread disruption and traffic chaos, so Philadephia police picked a name with negative undertones, or because it was a chance for retailers to turn a profit and get the revenue sheet back 'in the black'. Take your pick.

MORE: What Hi-Fi? Deals of the Week

When is Black Friday 2016?

The official date for Black Friday 2016 is Friday 25th November. However, if it's anything like 2015, then you can expect plenty of retailers to start pushing early 'Black Friday deals' well before the date.

In fact, Amazon is promising 12 days of deals in 2016. Last year there were tens of thousands of Lightning deals in the month of November, despite Amazon Prime Day being an increasing focus for the site.

Want to get the best Black Friday deals? You might have to stay up all night. Some deals will kick off at midnight or in the early hours. The savings then flow thick and fast over the next 24 hours.

The following Monday has also been dubbed Cyber Monday, when a fresh batch of deals gets rolled out from participating retailers - we should be in for at least a week or so of bargain shopping.

Black Friday Record Store Day

Independent record shops will also get in on the act for 2016, with a special batch of vinyl releases announced for Black Friday 2016.

Much like the Record Store Day in April, this offers a whole host of exclusive vinyl releases, limited editions, reissues, collectibles and more. 

The Black Friday Record Store Day deals are only available in the US for now, so we will keep our eyes peeled for any UK vinyl releases.

What are the most popular Black Friday products?

The most popular Black Friday deals are likely to feature the Amazon Fire products, anything Apple, and the PS4 and Xbox One.

We'd expect 4K TVs to feature heavily this year, alongside perennial favourites such as headphones and soundbars.

And it's not just hardware deals you can expect to see. There will be plenty of deals on CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays, as well as video games.

We'll be rounding up all the best Black Friday deals on What Hi-Fi? - and let's face it, that's probably a safer option than braving the shops, as you can see from the video below...
