  • Subscribe to retailers’ newsletters: they’ll keep you alerted with news of the latest deals and discounts.
  • Many retailers, such as John Lewis and Currys, offer a price-match guarantee. So if you see a TV that’s cheaper elsewhere but no longer available, make sure you hold them to it!
  • Amazon TV deal prices change rapidly, and it’s not always easy to see if a price drop is all that good. CamelCamelCamel is a handy online tool that tracks a product’s price history, to give you a better sense of the bargain.

32-inch smart TV deals

JVC LT-C600 32-inch Smart HD Ready TV

A 32-inch TV isn’t going to make much of an impact in most living rooms. But you’re seeking out a mini-size telly – for your kitchen counter, perhaps – you’ll still find a few discounted models out there. Take note though, there aren’t any 4K sets on offer right now.

40 to 43-inch smart TV deals

LG 43UN71006LB 43-inch UHD 4K TV

Now’s a great time to pick up a 40-inch or 43-inch set, especially if you’re looking to upgrade to a 4K television. They’re growing increasingly ubiquitous, but to see them priced around the £300 mark is still a real find.

48-inch to 50-inch smart TV deals

LG 50UN70006LA 50-inch 4K TV

As we move into the mid-size televisions, we’re pleased to see that a lot of the TVs on offer are not only from well-respected brands like Sony and Samsung, but many also feature a built-in voice assistant, offering you hands-free control over your television.

55-inch smart TV deals

SAMSUNG QEQ700TATXXU 55-inch Smart 8K TV

All the 55-inch TVs we’re seeing on sale will offer you 4K picture quality – which is what you’ll want, for televisions of this size. As you can see, there’s range of LG televisions on sale at the moment. We’re hugely excited to see the price of those BX and CX drop to £1,098 – a sign that we’ll start to see these illustrious televisions soon come in at less than a grand.

65-inch smart TV deals

LG NANO956 65-inch 8K NanoCell TV

As you can see, prices start to vary wildly in the larger screen sizes – you can spend as little as £429 or as much as £1,999 on a 65-inch TV right now. The more expensive models boast OLED and 8K picture quality, the exclusive domain of big spenders (for now, at least). It’s also somewhere we’re seeing some of the hottest savings in May.

75-inch smart TV deals

Sony Bravia KDXH80 75-inch 4K TV

Got the space for a 75-inch television? There’s a few on offer right now – take a look below.
