Best time to buy a new HDTV

(WFLX)-  If you're in the market for a new HDTV,  March to early April is the best time to buy  before prices go up.  That's because many retailers are discounting prices on their 2011 inventory as 2012 models come in.

Also several major manufactures are moving away from minimum advertised pricing to something called unilateral pricing policy. Upp penalizes retailers that sell televisions below the manufacture's preset price.

That new policy goes into effect April 1st.

The move is aimed at helping stores with higher operating costs remain competitive with online retailers.
