If you’re lucky enough to have picked up a PS5 console or Xbox Series X or S this past year among the stock issues then there is one thing that you definitely want to accompany your next-gen gaming console, and that is a great TV. The PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles specifically have the power to output 4K resolution and 120 FPS (Frames Per Second) on some games depending on how they’re optimised. However to reach these heights of fidelity and smoothness you need a TV that is as capable as your new console.
It is important to mention that HDMI 2.1 is required for 4K 120FPS and a lot of TV options will still be using HDMI 2.0 allowing for 4K 60FPS; this is still fine for many titles on the PS5 and Xbox Series X so it will be a matter of what suits you and what your budget is. Black Friday is the perfect time to find a great TV for your PS5 and Xbox Series X as a product that receives some fantastic discounts every year. If you’re looking for more gaming-related Black Friday deals check out our Black Friday hub page.
Black Friday officially begins on the 26th of November however we’re already seeing great discounts right now on HDMI 2.1 TVs perfect for PS5 and Xbox Series X. The deals will continue all the way into Cyber Monday that will be November 29th. We will be keeping this page updated alongside our Black Friday page to give you the best deals as we approach these dates.
Our partner retailers, Amazon, Argos, Currys and Very are all starting to have very competitive Black Friday TV deals; from 4K 60hz more affordable models to very well discounted 4K 120hz QLEDs and OLEDs; click the corresponding images below to check out their Black Friday offerings.
The LG OLED C1 is an absolute monster of a TV when it comes to gaming. Featuring: HDMI 2.1 4K 120FPS that was previously mentioned, NVIDIA G-Sync, HDR and a game optimiser mode to really take your gaming experience to the next level. Furthermore, as an OLED you will get to enjoy those unbeatable perfect blacks. We’re already seeing great discounts on this TV across all sizes, with the 48inch model being reduced to £999 already. A brilliant deal for a TV that will satiate all your gaming and entertainment needs especially if you're playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X.
LG 55NANO866PA 55" is another 4K offering from LG that sports 4K, HDR, HDMI 2.1 and 120Hz refresh rate. and has already been discounted to £699 at Amazon from £849.
SONY BRAVIA XR55A80JU 55" is another OLED beast however this time from Sony. Sony's A80J is the main competitor to LG's C1 in the OLED market and is just as feature-rich. 4K, HDR, 120Hz refresh rates etc and it is currently discounted to £1299 from £1499. Also sports Google TV and assistant. This deal also comes with £100 Playstation store vouchers which is perfect for your PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition consoles.
If you're looking for a slightly cheaper option then QLEDs tend to be a bit more flexible and tend to have great Black Friday deals. The HISENSE 55A7GQTUK 55" is a great value proposition right now at Currys reduced from £749 to just £498.99. This TV still has that great 4K UHD image and HDR but it does not have HDMI 2.1, and 120Hz refresh rate. For the price though this is an amazing Black Friday TV deal especially if you prefer the brightness a QLED panel offers. Also 4K 60Hz is what is available on a majority of PS5 and Xbox Series X and S optimised games as it stands right now.
The main difference here is that the OLED TVs are not backlit and pixels emit light individually and thus can be turned off entirely; this leads to true black colours but these TVs can be susceptible to burn in (this is often not the case, is more common if left on desktop images or home screens). QLEDs however do require backlighting which means the black areas are not as perfect as the OLED but these TVs still make for a brilliant viewing experience if not better in brighter well-lit rooms. Furthermore, QLEDs are far less likely to suffer from burn-in issues. Both sides have their advantages and disadvantages and there really isn’t a right choice here, it's just a matter of personal preference, viewing environment and budget as QLEDs tend to be that bit cheaper.
