If you’re in the market for a TV, you've come to the right place. Retailers across the globe are slashing prices on TVs in their sales, making that all-singing, all-dancing model you’ve had your eye on much easier to afford. Here, we bring you tips on how to find the best TV deals this month.
You’ll find deals on smart TVs, LED TVs, OLED TVs, curved TVs, 4K TVs and more, but with so many options it can be hard to figure out what you need. So in this article we also talk you through your options to help you know what to look for.

Best TV deals: What to look for
We’d recommend going for 4K if you can. They’re sometimes called UHD or Ultra HD, but essentially they all mean 4K (3840x2160 pixels, which is four times that of Full HD) and will be capable of displaying 4K content that is set to be the future standard for TV shows, movies and games.
We’d also suggest looking out for HDMI version 2 input with HDCP 2.2 support, which means it’ll be able to handle incoming 4K content sources such as Ultra HD Blu-ray players and media streamers like the Nvidia Shield. HDCP 2.2 is a new level of copy protection being used by all external 4K sources, so the more inputs that support it the better.
4K is best appreciated on a screen size of 55in or more, but there are smaller panels appearing and even a 4K TV at 40 inches can offer excellent performance. Make sure it's got enough HDMI ports for your set-top boxes, consoles and the like.
You might also see the acronym ‘HDR’ when you’re looking for a new TV. It stands for High Dynamic Range and offers higher peak whites and better colour depth. It’s not essential, but is a nice additional feature if the price is right. There isn’t much HDR content around yet, but like 4K we expect it to become more common over time.
