All deals are correct at time of writing.
Every year, Black Friday expands a little further into November and savings on Christmas gifts and the latest gadgets start a little earlier.
With many retailers hosting ‘early Black Friday’ promotions for shoppers looking to get their purchases in before the big rush of Black Friday Week, there are some great deals to be made on TVs, games and consoles this year.
A number of TV brands are running early Black Friday deals on their popular models — these are often ones that come with the brand’s flagship feature but are a lot more affordable than the top-end, £1000+ TVs.
Currys PC World has a range of high-quality Samsung TVs on sale for hugely discounted Black Friday prices this year. Our pick of the bunch is this 49-inch Samsung Q8 4K TV with QLED, Samsung’s flagship screen technology — currently £400 cheaper than usual at £899.00.
It has a 4K Ultra HD HDR display, as is standard with most new TVs, and is capable of upscaling lower-quality content into crisp 4K quality thanks to its powerful Quantum Processor.
The Samsung Q8 TV also has:
Samsung’s famed QLED screen technology is short for ‘quantum dot LED’, and is considered a hybrid of both LED and OLED screens. It still uses a backlight to power what you see, but filters it through a system of ‘dots’ that act like individual pixels, creating a much wider colour range. By comparison, OLED screens need no backlight at all, with each pixel lighting up by itself — OLED is the most premium screen technology but it’s very expensive as a result.

Amazon is running some early Black Friday deals on selected LG Smart TVs this year. You can get up to 20% off two of its NANO79 TVs, named as such because their 4K HDR screens use NanoCell — the most advanced LED technology in TVs today.
While they still can’t quite reach the cinematic heights achieved with OLED screens, LG’s NANO79 TVs offer the best picture quality, purity and colour range LED screens can offer. And they’re much more affordable than LG’s OLED models too.
Deals currently apply to both the 50-inch and 55-inch models. Key details for the NANO79 include:
Experience the cinematic colour range of the 50-inch LG 50NANO79NE 4K UHD HDR Smart NanoCell TV.

Sony has made huge price cuts to its LED TV range this Black Friday, with many available on Currys PC World for £150 cheaper.
Take the 55-inch Sony BRAVIA XH80, for example — with this 4K tele you can still enjoy some of Sony’s Hollywood-influenced screen technology for just £649, down from £799.
One must-have feature in a TV is excellent motion display, and as experts in producing top-quality film, Sony has mastered its own incredible form of it with Motionflow XR. This feature works with a number of other components in the TV to give you a much smoother, more natural picture than other models. Sony knows it’s not just about the picture quality, so it has made a huge effort to ensure what you see is exactly what was shot.
Here’s more info about the Sony BRAVIA XH80:

Aside from LG, the big names in TV like Samsung, Sony and Panasonic largely haven’t jumped on Amazon’s early Black Friday bandwagon. However, with some time still to go before Black Friday Week, we’re expecting their names to start cropping up on retailers’ sites in the coming days.

Due to their release dates falling so close to Black Friday, we’re unlikely to see any heavy discounts on next gen consoles like the PS5 or Xbox Series X this year. Many of them were also reserved when pre-orders went live earlier this autumn, so there’s probably a lack of stock available to really drive the price down for Black Friday 2020.
If you missed out on the chance to pre-order an Xbox Series X or S when they first went on sale, and you’re struggling to find a place that has them in stock, you might be able to order one from your broadband or mobile provider.
Provided you’re either with BT broadband or have an EE pay monthly mobile contract, you’ll get a chance to order a next-gen Xbox console from their own stockpiles. Log into your MyBT account if you’re with BT to receive a code that’ll let you purchase one, or enquire with EE’s customer service team if you have a contract with them. EE will let you split the cost of the Xbox over 11 months interest-free by just adding the instalments to your monthly bill.
