Prime Day 2022 is here and here are the freshest TV deals and discounts as they happen

Amazon Prime Day 2022 is here and it's a great avenue to finding the best TV deals and discounts on a great value new set. 

Whether that's the best 4K TV, best 8K TV, best OLED TV, or best small TV, there's a whole variety that will become available over the two-day sales period, which runs from Tuesday 12 July through to the end of Wednesday 13 July 2022. 

That's where T3 comes into play. In addition to our usual best Prime Day bargains, the staff will be running this TV deals live blog, documenting the best buys and bargains on televisions that appear over the day. 

It's worth bookmarking this page as we'll not only be covering Amazon's deals, but also looking to its competitors, who typically put out their own brief sales to counteract interest. So if there's a top TV to buy, we'll help you find it right here.

An amazing OLED for £799 (opens in new tab) [update: annnd it's gone!]

For my money, I find OLED the current winning TV technology. Get a top OLED panel in a darkened room and the sheer depth of black levels is astonishing. That's why I'd be looking for an OLED telly as a top pick, as even the not top-of-the-line ones are still hugely impressive. 

LG C1 OLED 48-inch:  was £1699, now £799 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

LG C1 OLED 48-inch: was £1699, now £799 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

So let's start off with a bang: LG's OLED panels are the pinnacle of quality, widely regarded as the best TVs for most people who are happy to spend for the utmost in picture quality. 

Here there's a big chunk of change off the 48-inch model, which hits Amazon's sale days at £799. That's less than half the original list price, but more realistically it's a couple of hundred quid down on the typical asking price. 

Still a total bargain, especially if you're looking for a 48-inch 4K screen rather than anything massive, and want to benefit from the inky deep blacks and zero light bleed that OLED is so superb at delivering. 

Samsung QLED big impressions for a smaller price (opens in new tab)

If OLED isn't for you and you want something altogether brighter (ideal if you're in a room that often experiences lots of light, for example) then Samsung's QLED technology is an ideal option. Especially at this bargain basement price point.

Samsung Q80A QLED 50-inch:  was £899, now £549 at Amazon (save £350) (opens in new tab)

Samsung Q80A QLED 50-inch: was £899, now £549 at Amazon (save £350) (opens in new tab)

Samsung's mid-tier Q80A came out in 2021 and thanks to its QLED panel (that's Quantum Dot tech, i.e. micro-scale LED lights for better, more uniform backlighting) it delivers seriously bright and colourful images.

Best of all with this one, however, is its asking price: to gab a 50-inch 4K telly for just over £500 delivered is a real steal, which is exactly what's on offer here.

If cheap is your main focus: Sharp 720p budget buy (opens in new tab)

If you don't care about 4K (heck, if you don't even care about Full HD) and just want a small, affordable panel to pop into, say, your kitchen or kid's bedroom, then here's a viable option. 

Sharp 1T-C32BI6KE2AB 32-inch:  was £249.95, now £170 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Sharp 1T-C32BI6KE2AB 32-inch: was £249.95, now £170 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

This one says 'HD Ready', which means it's just a 720p resolution, i.e. half the number of lines compared to a 1080p/Full HD panel. Don't expect the world, however, and your cheap TV deal dreams could still come true. 

Especially as higher resolutions on smaller panels such as this are often wasted (unless you sit too close!) and young eyes might not think/know to care about what they're watching Peppa Pig/Boris Badger/whatever the show is.

Yes, its name reads as though a cat walked over the keyboard, but to avoid your bank balance getting steamrolled we're sure that's a forgivable offence.

Samsung's The Frame with 38% off (opens in new tab)

Samsung The Frame 32-inch:  was £369, now £599 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Samsung The Frame 32-inch: was £369, now £599 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

The first time I saw Samsung's The Frame TV I was blown away by how its anti-reflective coating makes it look so much more like a painting than a glossy screen. 

Sounds like an oversell, but honestly it's not: if you're looking for a screen to present artwork when it's not in TV-like use, this 4K screen is a great option. 

It's also superb should you have particularly problematic direct lighting in your intended room of use. I've seen nothing else that can compare elsewhere on the market.

65-inch OLED amazement for under £1000 (opens in new tab)

Philips 65-inch OLED 706:  was £1,799.99, now £999.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Philips 65-inch OLED 706: was £1,799.99, now £999.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Not looking for a small, budget panel for your living room but still want a bargain? Of course you do!

Well, here's my top suggestion for a 65-inch OLED panel: Philips' PUS706 is a great option, complete with three-sided Ambilight that projects real-time colours from LEDs rear-mounted so the picture almost expands beyond the TV's frame. 

Philips has released plenty of renowned OLED TVs over the years, and while this one isn't its top-end 9-series with integrated soundbar, it's still a capable performer across the board that'll look great pride of place in your setup. 

A budget 4K Samsung panel bargain (opens in new tab) 

Samsung AU8000 43-inch 4K:  was £549, now £339 at Amazon (save £210) (opens in new tab)

Samsung AU8000 43-inch 4K: was £549, now £339 at Amazon (save £210) (opens in new tab)

Looking for a 4K panel that won't break the bank? This 43-inch model from Samsung certainly fits the bill, with a tempting 38% off its list price. 

No, it's not the all bells and whistles QLED panels that the company fronts the top of its range with, but I don't think that'll matter to many people looking for a bargain. 

And let's face it, that's what the AU8000 is: a veritable bargain at this kind of price, especially for a 4K panel. 

Samsung's best for less: flagship 55in QN90A (opens in new tab)

Samsung QN90A 55-inch 4K Neo QLED:  was £1,499, now £799 at Amazon (save £798) (opens in new tab)

Samsung QN90A 55-inch 4K Neo QLED: was £1,499, now £799 at Amazon (save £798) (opens in new tab)

Of all the deals to appear on Amazon Prime Day, I think this could be the best TV deal going (opens in new tab)

Not because it's the cheapest, as you can clearly see it's not, but because this is Samsung's 2021 flagship QLED TV – and the first to appear with 'Neo QLED', meaning even greater brightness than its predecessors.

Realistically, given the option between 2022's QN90B and this 2021 QN90A at almost half price, it's a no-brainer to go with the older option and save a stack of cash. 

There are other size options available, but the 55-inch QN90A is the one with the best discount and the most applicable size to most people's needs too. Well worth a look!

LG OLED C1 for a cut of the price (opens in new tab)

LG OLED C1 55-inch:  was £1699, now £1099 at Amazon (save £600) (opens in new tab)

LG OLED C1 55-inch: was £1699, now £1099 at Amazon (save £600) (opens in new tab)

While I'm very taken by Samsung's Neo QLED deal on the QN90A (below), if your heart's set on owning an OLED for the richest of blacks for sublime cinematic viewing, then you'll not find a better option than this. 

I'm talking, of course, about the LG C1: the Korean giant's 2021 sub-flagship model, which delivers a super panel and optimum image quality. It's only bettered by the C2 or G2 models of 2022, but you'll end up paying a heck of a lot more  to own one of those. 

So if OLED is what you seek, and at the top-end of the market to boot, then here's your Amazon star buy. The 55-inch model has a decent 35% off the list price, but other sizes are available too. 

Hello there bargain hunters, found anything yet that takes your fancy? 

It's Yasmine here taking over from Mike - over the course of the day, I'll bring you some of the hottest Prime Day TV deals as they happen. Keep an eye on this page for more... 

A half price Hisense

Hisense 43AE7000FTUK:  was £399, now £209 at Amazon (save £190) (opens in new tab)

Hisense 43AE7000FTUK: was £399, now £209 at Amazon (save £190) (opens in new tab)
Not everyone is willing to splash the cash on one of the best TVs in town. If you're after something that is cheap as chips but still big enough to use in your living room, then you're in luck. 

The Hisense 43AE7000FTUK (2020) was already affordable but right now it's an absolute steal, especially given the fact that it boasts stunning 4K resolution and the Alexa voice assistant built-in.

A more up-to-date 2022 model has also had a price cut for Prime Day but if you're trying to save as many pennies as possible then you'll be better off going for its predecessor. 

Don't forget about the sound...

Denon DHT-S216 Soundbar:  was £199, now £133.99 at Amazon (save £66) (opens in new tab)

Denon DHT-S216 Soundbar: was £199, now £133.99 at Amazon (save £66) (opens in new tab)
While you're looking for a shiny new TV, you might also want to consider buying a soundbar to go alongside it.  

Immersive surround sound will take your viewing to a whole new level, and this compact soundbar won't be an eye sore on your TV cabinet. 

The Denon DHT-S216 has had a huge 33% price drop for Prime Day which means that it's the cheapest it has ever been right now. 

£500 discount on this 5-star Sony

Sony Bravia KE65A8:  was £1699, now £1199 at Amazon (save £500) (opens in new tab)

Sony Bravia KE65A8: was £1699, now £1199 at Amazon (save £500) (opens in new tab)
If it's impeccable imagery you're after then the Sony A8 definitely delivers. Here at T3, we sang its praises when we got our hands on it, so much so that we awarded it a coveted 5-star rating. 

Every element has been carefully thought out in the making of this TV, whether that's the local contrast, refined colours, shadow detailing or subtle but effective motion management. 

What's even more exciting is that this doesn't actually need any help with the sound because it already comes loaded with powerful speakers. 

A cheap and cheerful kitchen TV

TCL 32S5209K:  was £199, now £149 at Amazon (save £50) (opens in new tab)

TCL 32S5209K: was £199, now £149 at Amazon (save £50) (opens in new tab)
Looking for something small for your kitchen or bedroom? The TCL 32S5209K is a 32-inch set that won't break the bank. 

You can't expect to be blown away by top-tier image quality but at 1080p, it will do the job. And thanks to Android TV, you'll be able to stream shows and movies over Wi-Fi without any extra tech. It even supports Chromecast and the Google Assistant. 

If it's value for money you're after then you'll certainly get that here. 

JVC Fire TV discounts 

JVC Fire TV Edition 43":  was £349.99, now £209.99 at Amazon (save £140) (opens in new tab)

JVC Fire TV Edition 43": was £349.99, now £209.99 at Amazon (save £140) (opens in new tab)
Here's a short sentence to summarise this deal: a 43-inch Full HD JVC Fire TV packed with all sorts of smarts at a jaw-droppingly low price.  

Buying a Fire TV means you get to skip having extra tech plugged into the back, like a Fire TV Stick or similar. Why? Because it has the interface built-in, which means you'll get an endless amount of apps, Alexa skills, and streaming services including Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Disney etc. You can also control it all by voice. 

Now you might have guessed there's a catch - you can't necessarily expect the dazzling picture quality and wall-shaking sound that you might get if you spend a lot more of your hard-earned cash. But if you're looking for a bargain then it's definitely worth a look. 


Get more than 40% off this LG 4K TV

LG 55NANO756PR:  was £597, now £349 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

LG 55NANO756PR: was £597, now £349 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A 55-inch 4K TV for less than £350 - I don't mind if I do - that's over 40% off its original price and the lowest it has ever been. LG has wow-ed us with this one. 

A mid-range UHD set with 55-inches of viewing pleasure and HDR Smart NanoCell technology. Gamers might not get what they need from the 60Hz refresh rate but it's well set up for most other types of content. 

You even get a few fan-favourite streaming apps built-in including Netflix, FreeView, Amazon Prime Video and YouTube. What more could you ask for?

Panasonic Prime Day price drop 

Panasonic 32-inch JS360:  was £269.99, now £215 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Panasonic 32-inch JS360: was £269.99, now £215 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Smaller TVs are ideal for bedrooms, offices or kitchens but you don't want to spend over the odds on something that you won't use quite as regularly as your living room television set - that's why it's definitely worth picking up a bargain on Amazon Prime Day.

Panasonic's 32-inch JS360 has just had its price dropped by about 20% taking it down to only £215. This slim, sleek TV offers detailed Full HD resolution alongside high-contrast HDR so you should get a decent view whatever and wherever you're watching.

This 65-inch 4K TV costs less than £400 

Toshiba 65UK3163DB:  was £599, now £379.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Toshiba 65UK3163DB: was £599, now £379.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A top-quality TV that's just been dropped to less than £500, the Toshiba 65UK3163DB will look right at home in your living room. 

4K, HDR10 and Dolby Vision will draw you in but add to that Dolby Atmos surround sound and you can expect a truly fantastic home cinema experience. 

What's more, is that there's an Alexa microphone hidden in the bezel so you can control it completely hands-free. You'll be able to integrate it with the rest of your smart home and you won't need to hunt around for the remote just to change the volume!

An excellent deal with a little something extra 

Philips 58PUS8546:  was £630.78, now £449.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Philips 58PUS8546: was £630.78, now £449.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A handful of Philips TVs have something that makes them ever so slightly different to everyone else, and that might sway you one way or the other. 

Ambilight LEDs surround three sides of the screen and sync seamlessly with what's happening on the display - it makes the whole viewing experience much more immersive. You'll find yourself captivated by them!  

This particular set also boasts UHD resolution with HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos surround sound. To sum it up, the bezels are slim, the features are expansive, and the price has been reduced by almost 30%. 

Prime Day's cheapest TV

RCA RB32H1:  was £169.99, now £125.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

RCA RB32H1: was £169.99, now £125.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The cheapest TV deal we have seen so far is on the RCA RB32H1, a 32-inch HD LED TV that will likely be best suited to smaller rooms so perhaps the kitchen or your kid's bedroom. 

Unlike the other sets on this list, this is not a smart TV so you'll need to hook it up to a media streamer or something similar to watch your shows. Luckily, to do so, you get a decent choice of connections including HDMI, USB and VGA. 

You can only expect basic features and performance but it's still amazing to see a TV on sale for such a low price!

Considered a projector instead?

Xgimi Halo Portable Projector 4K:  was £699, now £495.20 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Xgimi Halo Portable Projector 4K: was £699, now £495.20 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Okay, so I know this isn't a TV but hear me out... portable projectors allow you to set up a home cinema anywhere you want, even in the garden. You wouldn't be restricted to your living room if you were to buy this.

Of course, you would need it to be dark to get the best from it but you'll also be able to project whatever size screen you want. So there are pros and cons. 

The Xgimi Halo Portable Projector has had its price slashed by almost a third for Amazon Prime Day. It comes loaded with 4K support and Harman Kardon speakers for crystal clear sound as well as a battery to make it truly portable. You'll also get Android TV built-in which means all sorts of content right at your fingertips.

8K Sony TV reduced at John Lewis

Sony Bravia XR XR75Z9J:  was £3599, now £2999 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)

Sony Bravia XR XR75Z9J: was £3599, now £2999 at John Lewis (opens in new tab)
Despite it being called Amazon Prime Day, it's still worth taking a look elsewhere to see what other deals are around.

The Sony Bravia XR XR75Z9J is a 75-inch 8K TV that has had its price dropped by £600 at John Lewis - if you're looking to be wow-ed then this could be the one to do it for you. 

Combining stunning 8K with the latest XR processing power and Dolby Atmos surround sound, this TV is not here to play. At this price, the decision shouldn't be taken lightly but I do highly doubt you'd be disappointed if you were to take the plunge.

Another superb Samsung TV deal 

Samsung AU7110:  was £399, now £329 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Samsung AU7110:
