How to choose a cheap TV deal

But before you go rushing off to buy the first 4K TV you see, be warned, 4K isn’t the badge of quality it used to be. Nowadays, 4K, or Ultra HD as some manufacturers like to call it, is just a descriptive term telling you exactly how many pixels your screen can display at any one time. There are all manner of more important technical questions you need to answer before parting with your cash.
First of all, think about what size you need. The idea of a 65-inch beast may be appealing at first, but think if it’ll actually fit in the space you plan to put it.
43-inch: If you’re living in a small flat, or looking for a 4K TV for a spare room or bedroom, this is a good size. They’re also generally the most affordable 4K TV option you’ll find.
49-inch: Another common size point for most TV manufacturers and the one that will comfortably sit in most UK lounges.
55-inch: The breaking point where you enter big screen TV territory. The screens generally cost more than their smaller siblings, but if you have the space they’re great for movie binging and split screen gaming.
65-inch: These are the biggest screens you’ll get without having to sell a kidney. Though they’re generally more expensive, there are still some cracking deals on 65-inch TVs if you know where to look and some aren’t that much more than a 55-inch model.
There are a multitude of different operating systems being used on TVs at the moment, each of which features very different user interfaces varying features. If you’re buying for someone that’s not too tech savvy, you may want to stick with something they’re already familiar with.

HDR is another important consideration. HDR is a new type of tech designed to let TVs offer better contrast, greater brightness levels and a wider colour palette – the end result being a much more realistic picture.
It’s being rolled out on numerous services and products at the moment. Big names offering HDR content include Netflix via streaming, and Apple with the Apple TV 4K. The BBC has also tested a number of 4K and HDR broadcasts through its iPlaye service, such as Blue Planet and the World Cup. Gamers can also play select content in HDR if they have an Xbox One X or PS4.
Needless to say, there’s now no shortage of content that take advantage of HDR for enhanced visual quality.
The issue is, not all manufacturers are being entirely honest with their use of HDR branding. Some cheaper brands are claim to offer high dynamic range, when the TV doesn’t actually meet the formal HDR standards more established players have agreed on.
As a rule of thumb, when buying a 4K HDR TV keep an eye out for UHD Alliance HDR or Dolby Vision branding/certification on the box if you want the best picture quality.
Keep in mind the TV’s speakers, too. As TVs get thinner, sound quality is often sacrificed. It’s simple physics that a bigger speaker is able to move more air to create better sound. So as TVs become more razor-thin, sound quality often takes a hit. Some TVs still sound better than others, and some manufacturers have gotten clever with how they deliver sound.
Certain Sony Bravia screens use the entire display as a speaker, for instance. Otherwise, if you really care about sound quality, check out our Best Soundbar Deals page for some top bargains to go with your cheap TV.
