Care Plan for Televisions

A Care Plan protects your TV 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

Freeview HD allows you to receive around 50 digital channels, up to 10 of which are transmitted in incredibly detailed high definition, for an impeccable viewing experience straight out of the box.

LED


Along with offering bright, high-contrast pictures, LED TVs are often slimmer that other TV types. The Panasonic TX-42AS500B is no exception and features a discrete frame that not only looks great but reduces the overall size of the TV.

An A+ power rating means it won't cost a fortune to run either, making for impressive yet efficient entertainment.

Designed to reduce motion-blur during high-speed and intense scenes, you can enjoy the immersion of HD TV without distraction.

Convenient connectivity


Connecting your Blu-ray player, DVD player, console and anything else you have is simple with HDMI, SCART, component and composite connectivity.

Plus, a USB port on the AS500 lets enjoy video, music and photos from memory sticks and external hard drives in full HD.

Don't forget your HDMI cables


Check out our range of HDMI cables to connect your input devices and to make sure your new TV has a perfect picture.

Look out for the Sandstrom Silver Series HDMI cables with their lifetime warranty.

Delivery and service

Home Delivery

We have a range of delivery options including next day if you order before 8pm in most areas. Free delivery is available between 7am and 7pm, 7 days a week.

Removed and Recycled for Free
Unlike many other retailers, we will take away your old product for free recycling when we deliver. Just remember to disconnect the appliance before we arrive (unless you have purchased installation).

Install TV to stand with demo

We can also install your new TV on the day we deliver, for most of the UK. Just add installation at the 'Confirm basket’ page at the checkout.

Here's what we'll do:
  • Discuss where the TV is to be situated and how you would like it set up.
  • Disconnect the existing TV, un-box and check the new TV and stand.
  • Assemble the TV and the stand and set the TV on it.
  • Tune in the TV, connect any existing equipment such as a Blu-ray player and games console, then tidy the cables.
  • If it’s a Smart TV, set it up to your existing network (internet connection required).
  • Give you a demo of the main features.
  • Take away your old TV and packaging for recycling if you’d like us to.

Note: Before we arrive, you will need to make sure you have the necessary cables: SCART, AVI HDMI etc. If it’s a Smart TV, you will need an existing internet connection and your new TV either has built-in Wi-Fi or you have purchased the compatible dongle.
