If you're looking for a great TV deal in the Boxing Day sales, you have come to the right place. We've 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 deals you'll find below are on new 2022 TVs, which in many cases have already received some quite astonishing discounts. Look out for particularly big savings on LG's C2 and G2 models, plus Samsung's S95B QD-OLED.
There are some brilliant deals to be had on some of the last few remaining 2021 models, too.
BEST 42-INCH TV DEALS
LG OLED42C2 2022 OLED TV
£1399 £799 at Sevenoaks (save £600) (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 55-inch-plus 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. To get this price you need to enter code GDSAVE100 at checkout.
Sony XR-42A90K 2022 OLED TV
£1899 £1195 at Sevenoaks (save £704) (opens in new tab)
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, but there are many who will feel it's worth spending the extra on this Sony.
BEST 43-INCH TV DEALS
Hisense 43A6GTUK 43-inch LCD TV
£429 £269 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The 2021 43A6GTUK is another lesson from Hisense in how you can no longer judge a TV by its price point. Yes, there are weaknesses – unhelpful presets and slightly desaturated colours, for example – but it also offers more features and delivers a much greater level of picture and sound consistency than should be possible at this price. The 2022 (which we haven't tested) is actually cheaper – £239 (opens in new tab).
Samsung UE43AU7100 2021 43-inch TV
£499 £349 at John Lewis (save £150) (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 £379 at Amazon (save £170) (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.
BEST 48-INCH TV DEALS
LG OLED48C2 2022 OLED TV
£1399 £849 at John Lewis (save £550) (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. To get this price you need to be a My John Lewis member (joining is free) and use code MYJLLGTV100 at checkout.
Philips 48OLED806 2021 OLED TV
£1299 £999 at Amazon (save £300) (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 it's compact enough for any lounge.
Philips 48OLED807 2022 OLED TV
£1499 £1149 at Richer Sounds (save £350) (opens in new tab)
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? You need to be a Richer Sounds VIP to get this price, but joining is free and instant.
Sony XR-48A90K 2022 OLED TV
£1899 £1299 at Sevenoaks (save £600) (opens in new tab)
"An astonishingly good 'small' OLED TV" is how we described the 48-inch Sony A90K in our review. For picture authenticity and sound quality, you can't buy better at this size, and its gaming specs (while not quite up there with the LG C2) are strong.
BEST 50-INCH TV DEALS
Samsung UE50AU7110 2021 50-inch TV
£579 £399 at Amazon (save £180) (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.
TCL 50RP620K 50-inch Roku TV
£399 £279 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.
BEST 55-INCH TV DEALS
Samsung QE55S95B 2022 QD-OLED TV
£2399 £1199 at Amazon (save £1200) (opens in new tab)
You'd have thought that the first QD-OLED TV (which combines Quantum Dot and OLED technologies) would be obscenely expensive, but Samsung is already offering huge discounts on the S95B. This is one of the best TV deals you're ever going to find.
LG OLED55C2 2022 OLED TV
£1899 £1049 at Sevenoaks (save £850) (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. To get this price, use code GDSAVE100 at checkout.
LG OLED55A2 2022 OLED TV
£1499 £899 at Currys (save £600) (opens in new tab)
This 55-inch A2 OLED does without the C2's advanced gaming specs and brighter panel, but otherwise should offer the excellent LG OLED picture quality we've come to know and love. Potentially a great-value option for the non-gamers out there.
LG OLED55C1 2021 OLED TV
£1699 £800 at Currys (save £899) (opens in new tab)
2021's C-series OLED from LG was 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.
Sony XR-55A95K 2022 QD-OLED TV
£2699 £1999 at Sevenoaks (save £700) (opens in new tab)
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.
Sony XR-55A80J 2021 OLED TV
£1899 £998 at Amazon (save £901) (opens in new tab)
This What Hi-Fi? Award-winning TV is an absolute cracker. It supports Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, and features Sony's impressive audio and motion processing technologies.
LG OLED55G2 2022 OLED TV
£2399 £1299 at Sevenoaks (save £1100) (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. Enter code GDSAVE100 at checkout to get the above price.
BEST 65-INCH TV DEALS
LG OLED65C2 2022 OLED TV
£2699 £1599 at Amazon (save £1100) (opens in new tab)
While the G2 is an even better performer, the C2 is still the 2022 LG OLED TV that most people should buy, thanks to its irresistible performance-per-pound credentials. It's got a flawless set of next-gen gaming features, too.
Samsung QE65S95B 2022 QD-OLED TV
£3399 £1799 at Richer Sounds (save £1600) (opens in new tab)
The 65-inch version of Samsung's next-gen QD-OLED TV is even more heavily discounted than its 55-inch sibling. This is an astonishingly low price for such an excellent, envelope-pushing television.
Sony XR-65A95K 2022 OLED TV
£3499 £2899 at Amazon (save £600) (opens in new tab)
QD-OLED is a brand new TV technology that combines the Quantum Dots of QLED with the self-emissive pixels of OLED to excellent effect. Only Sony and Samsung have so far launched QD-OLED TVs, and this A95K is arguably the best TV of the year. It's expensive, but less so with this deal.
LG OLED65C1 2021 OLED TV
£2499 £1199 at Richer Sounds £1300) (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.

£599 £429 at Amazon (save £170) (opens in new tab)
This big Toshiba packs 4K picture quality along with HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR formats and Dolby Atmos audio. Alexa is built in, so you can speak to control it, and Toshiba's TRU Picture Engine improves movement, upscales content and adds in more picture detail. Yes please.
LG OLED65G2 2022 OLED TV
£3299 £1899 at Sevenoaks (save £1300) (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 design is also lovely (though bear in mind that a wall bracket is included but a stand is not) and every gaming feature imaginable is supported. Add code GDSAVE100 at checkout.
BEST 77-INCH TV DEALS
LG OLED77C1 2021 OLED TV
£3999 £2499 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
2021's C1 is still an absolutely brilliant TV that embarrasses many 2022 models on both picture performance and gaming specs. The newer C2 is brighter and a little bit better overall, but with this saving the C1 is without a doubt the one to buy.

was £5499 now £4199 at Sevenoaks (save £1300) (opens in new tab)
The biggest-ever C-class OLED is a sight to behold. On a pounds-per-inch basis it's not as good value as its smaller siblings, but this discount helps, and there's no substitute for size when it comes to home cinema. Add code GDSAVE200 at checkout.

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 Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The 2022 editions of these events have now been and gone, but you can bet your bottom dollar they'll be back and bigger than ever in 2023. Amazon Prime Day tends to move around, but Black Friday and Cyber Monday always take place, respectively, on the first Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving in the US. That means that next year Black Friday should take place on Friday 24th November, and Cyber Monday on Monday 27th 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.
