Get 6 months of free Apple TV+ at Currys

Get better sound with a gaming headset
This one’s basically essential for any horror game fan, but a gaming headset can really accentuate the experience across all games, thanks to PS5’s built in spatial audio.
And looking a bit up market, the Steelseries Arctis Nova 7X (this ‘X’ version has Xbox support as well, so long as you like green accents) is their latest upper-mid tier headset. It’s now available for £144 at Amazon, or £149 at Steelseries. There’s also the previous generation design Arctis 7P+ Wireless (without Xbox support) for £104.99
Maybe it’s time for a new TV as well?
Look… maybe you want a new TV? Sony has dropped the XR55A80JU 55″ OLED TV with VRR, 120Hz support and more to £999 for the Black Friday period, which is available from Currys, John Lewis, Richer Sounds, Hughes, Amazon, Argos and more.
Alternatively, LG is the better known brand for OLED TVs – Sony actually use LG panels in their TVs. At the same 55″ sweet spot size, the OLED55CS6LA CS model (this uses the 2021 design and OLED panel, but comes with the latest internal chipset, so it’s still capable of 120Hz, VRR and other gaming features. It can be found for £849 at John Lewis (for free My John Lewis members) and at Richer Sounds (for free VIP members). The typical discounted price is £949.
If 55″ is too big for you and/or your living space, then the LG 42″ C2 model is worth a look. The C2 model is the latest and greatest of LG’s OLEDevo panels that are brighter than before and has the latest internal chipsets as well. This can be had for £699 at John Lewis (for free My John Lewis members) and at Richer Sounds (for free VIP members). The typical discounted price is £799.
