Lidl has a 43-inch Toshiba television it's banging out for £199. A top brand it may be but we're pretty sure it's a discontinued model, which you'll find for a standard price of £239 on eBay, incidentally.
Bear in mind, too, that it's really made by Turkish consumer electronics company Vestel, just like the Polaroid televisions fought over on Black Friday when Asda imported this rather vulgar American custom in 2014.
However, Richer Sounds is probably a better place for a televisual bargain than the ‘aisle of shite' in Lidl. If you really must have a Toshiba badge on your television, then Richer Sounds will do you a 4K Ultra HD model, also 43-inches, for £90 off at £279.
An extra six inches - which I'm reliably informed can make all the difference - will set you back £349 for the Toshiba 49U6863, which is a decent £120 off and a fine price for a well-reviewed TV.
If you like your TV even bigger, then Amazon has a HiSense 65-incher, the Hisense H65AE6100UK down from £699 to £579; and Argos has the similarly sized LG 65UK64000PLF at £629, down from £799. Both are smart TVs with 4K screens, with the HiSense handily offering three HDMI inputs and the LG offering voice control.
Talking of in-home listening devices, Argos is also offering the Amazon Echo Dot at half-price for £24.99, and the Google Home Mini £20 off at £29. Give it a year or two, though, and you'll probably be able to pick up handfuls of Amazon Echoes and Google Homes for a £1 each in your local charity shop.
If you wouldn't be seen dead in Lidl - or even Richer Sounds - then John Lewis has some decent TV deals at the high end. If you don't mind dropping two grand on a gogglebox, the LG OLED55E8PLA 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TC with both Freeview Play and Freesat HD has had £500 knocked off and is now being hawked for £1,999.
If that sounds cheap, then try the 65-inch LG OLED65W8PLA Signature - a snip at just £3,999 after John Lewis has munificently cut £2,000 off the price.
Richer Sounds, though, will give you more for less. Specifically, the 75-inch monster that is Sony's 4K Ultra HD Bravia KD75XF9005BU, reduced from £2,999 to £2,499. It also has the Philips 55OLED803 55-inch 4K Ultra HD smart TV with Freeview HD reduced by £500 to £1,499.
Completely by-the-by (ie: not a Black Friday deal at all), Argos also has the Nintendo Classic Mini NES in stock at £49.99 and the Sega Mega Drive Flashback with 85 games for a fiver off at £44.99.
Anyway, back to Black Friday, Argos also has the top-of-the-range Now TV set-top box for half-price at £24.99, as does everyone's favourite electrical retailer, Currys. This also comes with a bunch of one-month Now TV passes, plus a day pass to Sky Sports, as well as offering access to BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, NetFlix etcetera. Now TV boxes are especially handy if your smart TV is getting on a bit and the built-in apps have become a bit slow.
