(Pocket-lint) - There's no better time to buy a new TV than in the Black Friday sales - which falls on 26 November in 2021, followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November.

There's big discounts on some of the latest sets - and it's a perfect opportunity to get a new television into your home before the holiday season. Here's a round-up of what's available in the sales, listed by screen size:

Where are the best TV deals on Black Friday?

Discounting on TVs is pretty universal across retailers, with many dropping prices. The great thing about televisions is that many get discounts at the end of the year because they have been available for some time, so you can still get the latest tech at lower prices.

What to consider when buying a TV

Of course, ensuring you're buying the right TV is the most important part.

The biggest factor when it comes to buying a TV is where you're going to put it and whether it fits. We all want big TVs, with sizes around 65-inches getting increasingly common. But that size might not fit in all rooms - it might just be too big, so carefully consider how much space you have, including how far you'll be sitting from the screen. 

This also helps with decisions on whether you need 8K or not. It's the latest technology, but it's more expensive at the moment and if you're buying a smaller TV then it's not something you need to worry about. If you want to put a larger TV in a smaller room, however, the extra detail it offers can improve the experience when you're sitting closer to the screen. 

More important is likely to be the technologies offered. The latest games consoles support 120Hz, and while this technology isn't being hugely exploited at the moment, it might become a lot more important during the life of your TV - and not all TVs offer it, so be sure to check. Another is Dolby Vision HDR - not all TVs offer it and if you're a movie fan, this might be a technology you want supported.

We're seeing a wider option of features on TVs - Philips offering its Ambilight illumination is big draw, while the depate about OLED, QLED or just LCD still rumble on - and Black Friday often makes those premium TVs a little more affordable.
