The biggest discounts in the Black Friday sales are usually on the biggest screens – and for good reason. Larger 65-inch or 75-inch TVs start with much higher price tags than their smaller counterparts, which means there’s more room for prices to fall when retailers start discounting their stock.
Black Friday has finally arrived, and we’ve certainly seen some massive discounts befitting the size of the screens featured in these sales, in both the US and UK.
For US shoppers, there’s a brilliantly-priced 75-inch Samsung TV for just $747.99 at Best Buy, after a $150 discount – or a more premium Sony X900H TV for $1,769 at Amazon after an even larger $730 price cut.
In the UK, meanwhile, you can nab a 75-inch version of Samsung’s art-minded The Frame for £1,999 after a £800 discount at Currys. Philips 2019 flagship OLED is available at the same price at Currys right now too, after a £500 discount brought the OLED+934 more in reach of us mere mortals.
There’s a lot of great Black Friday TV deals to reckon with, then, and this guide will run you through our top picks for plus-size models, from the step-up 65-inch size to more gargantuan 85-inch screens.

Of course, a big discount can still leave a big end price, depending on how expensive a TV was to start. We saw this, quite painfully, with the 98-inch Samsung Q900R 8K TV having got a $50,000 half-price discount and still retaining a $49,999 price tag.
What’s the deal with such big screens? Well, larger sizes let you see in more detail, making the most of 4K or 8K resolutions, as well as being more sociable if your screen is playing to a room of people.
Larger screens can equally, though, exaggerate the picture flaws of cheaper or lower-specified sets, so you want to be careful you’re not just going after the cheapest model if spending a little more is going to drastically improve picture performance. Hisense TVs can struggle with motion, for one, even if otherwise its value sets offer a lot for the price.
Generally, though, any TV in this list should offer a good big-screen experience. Check out our guides to the best 65-inch 4K TVs and 75-inch 4K TVs if you’re keener on the best quality and the cheapest price.
