So, you've got a PS5 and/or Xbox Series X, have you? You lucky so and so. But now you're realising that your existing TV, very nice though it may be, isn't quite cutting the mustard and doesn't have all of the features necessary to take full advantage of your new console. Time for an upgrade.
Of course, having recently forked out for a next-gen games machine, you can't now afford to waste money. You want the best, but you also want it at the best price, and that's why you're hunting for the best gaming TV deals.
That's where we come in. We scour the web daily to find the best possible prices on the best kit there is, and now we're using that expertise to find the biggest deals on perfectly specced gaming TVs.
What are those specs that we're looking for? The big one is 4K@120Hz, which is new technology that's built into both the PS5 and Xbox Series X and makes games smoother and more responsive than ever before. It requires special panels, processing and connections, so is still the preserve of quite high-end TVs.
VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) is a big deal, too, as that smooths gameplay even further. ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) is also nice to have as it allows the TV to automatically switch between its optimal game and movie picture settings depending on what you're doing with your console.
Crucially, every TV below supports all of these features, so you can buy knowing that every next next-gen gaming base is covered. Unfortunately, that does mean you're looking at quite premium TVs, although the discounts make them far more affordable than you probably expect.

42-inch and 43-inch gaming TV deals
LG OLED42C2 2022 OLED TV
£1399 £699 at John Lewis (save £700)
LG's first 42-inch OLED TV has only been available for five minutes but has already had a big discount. It's slightly less bright than the bigger C2 models but otherwise has the same features. That should make it a huge hit, particularly with gamers who want a desktop TV with all of the next-gen specs. Getting this amazing deal involves registering for (or logging into) a My John Lewis account and using code MYJL100LG at checkout.
Sony XR-42A90K 2022 OLED TV
£1899 £1195 at Amazon (save £604)
Sony's first 42-inch OLED is a high-end treat, particularly if picture authenticity is your priority. It sounds great by TV standards, too. The 42-inch LG C2 is still overall the better buy, given its much lower price and extra HDMI 2.1 sockets, but there are some who will feel it's worth spending the extra on this Sony.
Samsung QE43QN90B 2022 QLED TV
£1299 £799 at John Lewis (save £500)

£1499 £1199 at Box (save £300)
The 48OLED807 is an absolutely brilliant OLED TV at a really attractive price. Great picture, above-average sound, strong gaming specs and glorious Ambilight. What more could you want?
Sony XR-48A90K 2022 OLED TV
£1899 £1295 at Sevenoaks (save £604)

£2399 £1099 at Amazon (save £1340)

Sony XR-55A95K 2022 QD-OLED TV
£2699 £2095 at Box (save £504)
Unlike Samsung's S95B, above, Sony's new QD-OLED TV is priced as you'd expect a premium, next-gen television to be. It's an undeniably expensive proposition, even with this discount, but if money's no object, this is the best TV you can currently buy.

£1899 £998 at Amazon (save £601)
