Xbox One and Forza 5 for £289

If you want to pick up an Xbox One for cheap, then Tesco Direct looks like a safe bet. The retailer’s online-only arm has the console and Forza 5 for only £289 – compared to an RRP of £329 for the console only. Not bad at all.

Digihome 50 Inch Smart WiFi Built In Full HD 1080p LED TV with Freeview HD for £299

Also at Tesco, if you want the cheapest possible massive telly there’s this Digihome 50″ set for only £300.

Yes, it is a no-name brand, and it probably won’t be quite as impressive as similar from the likes of Samsung or LG, but for £300 can you really go wrong? Here’s the manufacturer’s description:

“With the Digihome 50278FHDLEDCNTD Smart TV you can experience a world of entertainment from the comfort of your own living room. Freeview HD is built-in meaning you get up to 12 high definition channels and up to 50 Freeview channels in standard definition. The 50” Full HD LED screen gives great detail as well as superb contrast ratios all in an energy efficient way, this model has an ‘A+’ energy rating.

“Smart functionality gives you access to a wide range of extra content via Netflix, YouTube and BBC iPlayer. Simply connect the TV to your home’s Internet connection using the built-in Wi-Fi. Download the Digihome Smart Centre app from your app store (Android and iOS) and you can control the TV directly from your smartphone or tablet. The Digihome 50278FHDLEDCNTD also has an electronic programme guide and lets you watch videos and view photos from your smartphone or tablet device on the big screen.

“This Digihome TV offers a wide range of connections including two HDMI ports allowing you to connect other high definition devices to your TV. With 2 USB ports you can watch movies, listen to music or view photos using the TVs media player. You can also use the TV as a monitor for your laptop using the PC input. Older devices can also be connected using the SCART socket that is also provided.”

PS Vita £99.99 at Sainsburys

Want to get in some gaming on the go? According to one eagle-eyed user of Hot UK Deals, if you go into a Sainsbury’s store that has an entertainment section, you might be able to pick up Sony’s handheld console for only £99.99 – not bad at all!

Galaxy Note 10.1 for only £189

If you want a large screened tablet on a budget, the Note 10.1 from Asda could be a good option at only £189. It isn’t the newest tablet – in fact, we believe this is the late 2012 model so it is getting on a bit, but for £189 it comes in much cheaper than the latest iPad.

Sony KDL48W585BBU 48 Inch Full HD Smart LED TV only £459.99 at Argos

And finally, how about a massive Sony telly? It’s a smart TV and boasts some network features – including support for DLNA, wifi, with 2 USB and 4 HDMI sockets. Sony specifically mentions apps for the Sony Entertainment Network and Amazon Instant Video – and we’d wager iPlayer will be in there too. And all for only £459.99 at Argos.
