The best TV deals for Boxing Day

After a Christmas spent looking at your telly, it's only natural you're going to notice its flaws a lot more: maybe the picture quality isn't what you want, there aren't enough outputs to connect a shiny new console, or perhaps you're just bitter that your TV doesn't have the latest and greatest features out there. 

 

Luckily, the new year is just around the corner and gives you a perfect chance for a new beginning: make sure you don't waste it and can kick off your new decade with a shiny new screen with the help of our deals roundup.

 

Not everyone wants a brand-spanking-new 4K 75-inch OLED screen that costs more than your house, so we've also filled this list with a range of choices, from affordable new TVs to, well, that pricier-than-a-house future TV. Read on, and see what you could get yourself to ensure your TV woes are a thing of the 2010s. 

Sony Bravia KDL32RE403 32-Inch HD Ready HDR TV (32in was £350 now £239)

 

Packing in some weighty features for a 32-inch TV, this Sony Bravia model is a steal at £239.00,  knocking £111 off the regular retail price. 

What do you get for your cash? Well, there's 720p HD, HDR, USB playback, YouTube integration, a boatload of Sony's patented TV tech under the hood and even the ability to record live TV as long as you rustle up a harddrive and connect it via USB. This won't break the bank, but if you've been making do with a subpar TV for a while, this could chuck you headfirst into the future.

Panasonic TX40GX800B (40in, was £599, now £499)

 

This 40in Panasonic TV offers 4K at a decent price, and bundles up a lot of features typically thought of as premium, in a package that's now available with change for £500. 

Including Panasonic's HCX video processing engine, which was previously only available on their high-end OLED models, you should get a really premium feel to anything you watch, especially when you factor in HDR10+, Dolby Vision and other modcons like Bluetooth support and integration for both Alexa and Google Assistant. 

The only other thing worth mentioning here is local dimming, which means the TV can adjust the brightness of the TV screen by different zones, meaning you'll get hugely improve contrast. It's not OLED, but it's a big step up from regular HD.

Philips 43PUS7304/12 (43in, was £850 now £549)


Jump on this deal as it's only around for a short while: this deep discount makes this TV a steal. 

Again, for the price you're getting some premium features and the special one here is the Ambilight, which pumps out LED colours to the sides and top of the TV to match what is on screen. It's weird to describe, but in action it looks ruddy brilliant. 

It's a decent 4K experience too. As with the other TVs, Philips have their own post-processing tech involved, but there's Dolby Atmos in there too, so this should be one of the rare TVs that actually has something to shout about when it comes to audio. 

Small caveat with this one: several UK TV catch-up apps won't work with the TV, which could be a pain if you're not pairing it off with a console but want to watch TV via their specific apps.

Samsung RU7400UHD TV (43in, was £509.99, now £359)

You can also save £150.99 by picking up Samsung's 43 inch variant of their 2019 model. This is light on bells and whistles, but the company has drilled down on what you want from a TV, so there's a crisp 4K image, a solid content hub that includes BT Sport, Now TV and Apple TV hubs and Bluetooth support. 

There's not much else to say. This one ticks a lot of boxes but it does so like a real workhorse. The perfect choice if you're just here for performance.

Samsung UE49RU8000 (49in was £999, now £529)


The further down the list, the more Samsung TVs you start to see. They're quite good at this, as it turns out.  This TV is better because it's just one decently sized takeout away from being half price and includes the clean image quality of the Samsung above, but with a bunch of extra features. 

The further down the list, the more Samsung TVs you start to see. They're quite good at this, as it turns out.  This TV is better because it's just one decently sized takeout away from being half price and includes the clean image quality of the Samsung above, but with a bunch of extra features. 

This TV will integrate with most smart home kit, and it also has the swanky dimming tech that will change the brightness in different areas of the TV, which helps the contrast pop. Add an external harddrive via USB and you can even pause live TV, essential for a quick bathroom break. This is one of Samsung's biggest 

This is backed up with best-in-class app support, including BT Sport, Now TV and even Apple TV apps, alongside the usual offerings seen elsewhere. Add to this the ability to set up the TV with a smartphone app, quickly logging you into everything you should be logged into, and it's an attractive package at a great price.

Samsung UE65RU7300 (65in was £649, now £549)

Another Samsung offering, but this one is bigger and more curved, which creates the optimal viewing experience if you're sat front and centre in front of it. 

If you've been reading through thls list, you'll get a sense of what Samsung has going on: sharp image quality, brilliant app support, Ultra HD upscaling and dimming technology that will alter the brightness of different areas of the screen to make your contrast solid.
