The best TV deals 2022: 4K, QLED, HDR, OLED

If you're looking for a great TV deal, you have come to the right place.

We have scoured the web to find you the very best TV deals around, and only on the best sets from our comprehensive reviews back catalogue. There are all sorts here, from massive TVs with the latest smart TV tech, to more basic models that are a little easier on the wallet. But no matter what type, they all excel at what they do.

Most of the biggest discount you will see below are on the last few remaining 2021 models. While the savvy shopper will go for one of those huge deals, there are now also discounts available on some 2022 sets, most notably LG's new C2 and G2 models. 

BEST 42-INCH TV DEALS

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED42C2 2022 OLED TV £1399 £1089 at Amazon (save £310) (opens in new tab)
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.

BEST 43-INCH TV DEALS

(opens in new tab)

Samsung UE43AU7100 2021 43-inch TV £499 £279 at Amazon (save £220) (opens in new tab)
Simply put, this is the best 43-inch TV we've tested this year. It boasts a surprisingly mature and consistent picture performance and the full, excellent Samsung smart platform, which gives access to more or less every streaming service under the sun.

Samsung UE43AU8000 2021 TV £549 £329 at Amazon (save £220) (opens in new tab)
Compared with the AU7100 above, the AU8000 adds Dynamic Crystal Colour technology that should make for a more vibrant performance. We weren't actually very impressed when we reviewed the 50-inch version, and while this 43-incher could be better, we'd suggest that the AU7100 or Q60A deals look better.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung QE43Q60A 2021 QLED TV £749 £339 at Amazon (save £410) (opens in new tab)
This is the smallest, cheapest QLED TV that Samsung makes. We've not tested it but the addition of quantum dots should make for a punchier picture than that offered by the AU7100 above.

BEST 48-INCH TV DEALS

(opens in new tab)

Philips 48OLED806 2021 OLED TV £1299 £799 at Richer Sounds (save £500) (opens in new tab)
Let's cut straight to the chase: this is our favourite TV of 2021. The OLED806 series is just brilliant, offering super-punchy and crisp images, solid sound, Ambilight and loads of next-gen gaming features, and at 48-inches its compact enough for any lounge.

LG OLED48C1 48-inch OLED TV £1299 £769 at Amazon (save £520) (opens in new tab)
The C1 is the performance-per-pound champ of LG's 2021 OLED TV range, and this 48-inch version is just as good as its larger siblings. It's a particularly strong choice for gamers, and more tempting than ever with this discount.

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED48C2 2022 OLED TV £1399 £1199 at Richer Sounds (save £200) (opens in new tab)
If you want a cutting edge 48-inch TV, the OLED48C2 is for you. This is the very latest LG OLED TV with all of the company's best tech and every gaming feature covered. Do also consider last year's C1, though, which is available with even bigger discounts and shouldn't be much of a downgrade.

BEST 50-INCH TV DEALS

(opens in new tab)

Samsung UE50AU7110 2021 50-inch TV £579 £329 at Amazon (save £250) (opens in new tab)
A smaller, very similar TV was the best 43-inch set we tested last year. It boasted a surprisingly mature and consistent picture performance and the full, excellent Samsung smart platform, which gives access to more or less every streaming service under the sun. Which bodes well for this model.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung QE50Q80A 2021 QLED TV £1299 £549 at Amazon (save £750) (opens in new tab)
The Q80A is Samsung's top non-'Neo' QLED, which means it has a standard LED backlight. It won't offer quite the contrast of its flagship siblings but it looks like an excellent bang-for-buck option at this price.

(opens in new tab)

Sony KD-50X80J 4K HDR TV £849 £449 at Amazon (save £400) (opens in new tab)
This classy-looking 50-inch LED TV promises exceptionally good black depth, vibrant colours, and excellent HDR handling. A 4K TV that's well worth considering, especially at this price. 

(opens in new tab)

Samsung QE50QN90A 2021 Neo QLED TV £1799 £589 at Amazon (save £1210) (opens in new tab)
Samsung's new, Mini LED-based Neo QLED TV is available as a relatively compact, 50-inch model – and it's seen massive discounts since launch. We have not tested it yet, but expect a very bright and punchy picture, plus lots of smart features and next-gen gaming specs.

(opens in new tab)

Hisense R50A7200GTUK Roku TV £399 £279 at Argos (save £120) (opens in new tab)
Arguably the best-value TV currently available in the UK, this Hisense combines the excellent Roku smart platform with a surprisingly mature picture performance. A superb buy.

BEST 55-INCH TV DEALS

LG OLED55C1 2021 OLED TV £1699 £1099 at Amazon (save £600) (opens in new tab)
The latest C-series OLED from LG is everything you would expect – an all-round picture performer with every next-gen gaming feature you could hope for. It's got the catch-up apps that were missing from the CX, too. A brilliant TV, particularly at this price.

(opens in new tab)

Philips 55OLED806 2021 OLED TV £1599 £1045 at Amazon (save £545) (opens in new tab)
While we have not yet tested the 55-inch OLED806, the 48-inch and 65-inch versions are Award-winningly brilliant and we have no reason to expect this to be any different. This is a big discount, too.

(opens in new tab)

Sony XR-55A80J 2021 OLED TV £1899 £1132 at Amazon (save £767) (opens in new tab)
Sony's awesome A80J OLED TV launched at £1899, was down to £1699 when we reviewed it (and gave it 5 stars) and can now be bought for much less than that. An absolutely brilliant TV that majors on authenticity.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung QE55QN94A 55-inch QLED TV £1499 £829 at Amazon (save £670) (opens in new tab)
We gave the QN94A a five-star rating at £1499 so it's superb value at this new, extra-low price. It does without the QN95A's One Connect box but the performance is every bit as brilliant.

(opens in new tab)

TCL 55RP620K 55-inch Roku TV £449 £329 at Currys (save £120) (opens in new tab)
Another excellent-value Roku TV, this time from TCL. The superb smart platform is the attention-grabber, but it's the surprisingly solid picture performance that makes this such a great buy, particularly with this discount.

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED55C2 2022 OLED TV £1899 £1499 at Currys (save £400) (opens in new tab)
LG's new C2 is the ideal TV for most people. It's brighter than any 2021 OLED, produces brilliantly punchy but natural images and boasts every next-gen gaming feature you could ask for. And now it's available with a discount.

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED55G2 2022 OLED TV £2399 £1999 at Amazon (save £400) (opens in new tab)
While most people will be best served by the C2, above, the G2 is even brighter and punchier and boasts a frame-like design that makes it look particularly brilliant when wall-mounted. Do bear in mind that there's no stand in the box.

Samsung's 2021 flagship 4K 'Neo QLED' TV has now dropped massively in price. This is a superb television with a super-punchy mini LED backlight and a One Connect box with four HDMI 2.1 sockets. An excellent buy.

This is the best 65-inch TV of 2021 and it's now available for vastly less than at launch. For both picture and sound it's even better than the LG C1, below, and it also has beautiful Ambilight and two HDMI 2.1 sockets.

Sony XR-65X90J 65-inch TV £1799 £849 at Crampton & Moore (save £950) (opens in new tab)
This classy LCD/LED TV was already great value at its original price, so it's a real steal with this deal. It's a particularly strong option for gamers who can't quite stretch to an LG C1 or Samsung QN94A.

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED65C2 2022 OLED TV £2699 £2289 at Amazon (save £250) (opens in new tab)

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED65G1 2021 Evo OLED TV £2999 £1949 at Amazon (save £1050) (opens in new tab)
The G1 is LG's first Evo OLED, which takes the excellent performance and feature set of the C1 (above) and adds even more punch to images. It's got a lovely design that's specifically for wall-mounting, too (you will need to budget extra for feet or a stand if it's not going on the wall).

(opens in new tab)

LG OLED65G2 2022 OLED TV £3299 £2999 at John Lewis (save £300) (opens in new tab)
The G2 offers the best 4K picture quality that LG currently produces, boasting not only OLED Evo technology, but also an added heatsink that allows the panel to be pushed to even brighter levels.

The 2021 version of LG's C-series TV has also now been discounted. It's not hugely better than the CX, but it does have better motion processing, a more complete app selection and a new Game Optimiser feature that gives you instant access to the set's many next-gen gaming features.

When is the best time to buy a TV?

TV prices fluctuate massively over the course of a year, and knowing the best time to buy can be the difference between bagging a bargain and paying well over the odds. Generally speaking, there are three times of year that are best to buy a new TV: spring, big sales events and big sporting events.

Of these, spring is often the very best. This is because it's the time of year that all of the previous year's TVs tend to be sold with huge reductions so that space can be made for the new models that were announced in the January. Generally speaking, TV improvements are fairly incremental from one year to the next and you can usually save yourself hundreds, if not thousands, by opting for last year's model. A word of warning, though: these are end-of-line models we are talking about so when they're gone, they're gone. Wait too long for the very lowest price and you could end up missing out entirely.

If you don't want to wait until spring, there are three big sales events to mark in your calendar: Amazon Prime DayBlack Friday and Cyber Monday. This year's Amazon Prime Day has now been and gone, but Black Friday and Cyber Monday always take place, respectively, on the first Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving in the US. That means that this year Black Friday should take place on Friday 25th November, and Cyber Monday on Monday 28th November. While these sales events don't necessarily guarantee the very lowest prices you will see all year, you can be pretty sure of getting a deal that's at least good, and quite possibly great.

While slightly less obvious, big sporting events often really do generate big deals on new TVs. Think Wimbledon, the Olympics and of course football tournaments such as the World Cup, Euros and the FA Cup Final. This year, for the first time, the World Cup takes place in the winter, so look out for it starting on 21st November – that's Black Friday week. Expect deals aplenty.
