Great Deals on HDTVs Expected This December

Expected Holiday HDTV Price Drop Explained

If you're in the market for a new HDTV and are ready to plunk down your money for that new set — hold off! The prices of HDTVs are expected to plummet in the coming months, which can mean huge savings for you.

There are a number of factors that may lead to LCD and Plasma TV prices hitting the deck this shopping season, one of which is the economy. We're afraid to spend our money! So retailers have to make it irresistible for hesitant shoppers to hand over that credit card, while they clear out their inventory to make room for the newer models to come.

Another reason for the deep discounts? The digital signal switch. If you haven't gotten on board with digital, and are still using an analog signal TV (with the 'ole bunny ear antenna), you have until February 17, 2009 to get your hands on a converter box, or to upgrade your television. What a better way to usher in this new era of digital viewing than with a LCD TV, deeply discounted to sell?

If you're planning on buying a high-end set, you may not find the best prices at the crack of dawn on Black Friday. Last year, we saw the best deals on name brand TVs in the three weeks before Christmas, when retailers were still trying to push out those remaining models while battling it out over prices. Good things come to those who wait? Most likely!

Good to know!! I'm hoping that we don't need to buy the converter box for our TV (it's tube, no bunny ears though..). But just in case, it's absolutely necessary to buy a new TV, I'll be waiting til it gets closer to Christmas Day.

Thanks for the info. I've been tempted to upgrade from my old tube TV to an LCD. Guess I'll wait and see what kind of savings appear.
