How to find the best TV deals at Currys

With TV sales being a major part of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's good to know the kind of things to look for ahead of the sales.

Currys own buying guide suggests you keep an eye on screen size, picture quality and TV technology when buying a new set, and consider whether you want a curved screen - which are more immersive but can limit viewing angles - or a standard screen, which now can be incredibly thin.

4K TVs are also becoming the mainstream now, so make sure you are buying the latest technology.

Currys' PC World also has an app to help you judge the kind of screen size you will need by measuring how far away you sit from your TV.
