KNOWHOW®

Care Plan for DVD, Blu-ray & Home Cinema

A Care Plan protects your home cinema equipment if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month
