What Cyber Monday TV deals do we expect to see in 2021?

When it comes to TVs, we start to see fairly substantial discounts on models that are over a year old. As newer models take up the spotlight for each manufacturer, there's a push to sell older ones at discounted prices. This will be the case with well-received displays like the LG CX and the Samsung QLED Q60T.

Last year, we saw tiny discounts on models like these as they were relatively new. However, this year's Cyber Monday is likely to be a different story. Take the LG CX, for example, which has since been superseded by the LG C1. We expect to see heavier discounts on last year's CX as a result.

What should I look for when buying a TV on Cyber Monday 2021?

For the most part, the older a TV model is, the bigger discounts you'll see for it. And as TV tech typically gets better year on year, this year's Cyber Monday could present an excellent opportunity to nab some of the best TVs ever made an discounted prices.

Cyber Monday will be an excellent time to buy a superb display if you're on a budget. High-end TVs will receive some decent discounts, while mid-range TVs - including 4K HDR capable screens - usually become much more affordable.

Those who may have been fortunate to come away with a PS5 Cyber Monday deal or Xbox Series X Cyber Monday deal will also want to look for TVs that support HDMI 2.1. This is the technology that will allow you to get the most from games that are designed to be played in 4K at 120Hz for the smoothest experience.
