However, there are now plenty of huge TVs for a cinematic experience. While some are terribly expensive, there are some bargains to be had, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Are TV deals better on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
It's hard to say which is best. In previous years we've seen some retailers offer further discounts on Black Monday depending on how items sold on Black Friday, but on the other hand some of the best Black Friday deals sell out, and the TVs are back at their normal prices by the time Cyber Monday arrives. The short answer is: it varies. If you see a deal you like, we'd advise you to snap it up it rather than hold our to see if the price drops further because the chances are that if the deal's good, it will sell out and the price will increase.
