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

Product details

With a stunning curved screen that draws you into the action, the Samsung UE78HU8500 Smart 3D 4k Ultra HD 78" Curved LED TV delivers revolutionary home entertainment.

A learning curve

Featuring intelligent Smart features, future-ready technology and a curved design that will take your breath away, the HU8500 will revolutionise the way that you watch TV.

Taking TV designs to a new level, this curved screen has an elegant metal frame and the Aero curved stand so it will look beautiful in your living room. Whether it's switched on or turned off, your eyes will be drawn to this large screen TV, with a design that almost makes it look like it's floating.

The natural curve is optimised for the viewing distance in your living room, which means that it provides a wider field of view and more natural viewing angles, drawing you into whatever's happening on screen.

Auto Depth Enhancer technology makes you feel like you're part of the action. It analyses different areas on the screen and enhances the contrast in each of the areas. The effect is an increased sense of depth and more compelling images.

Ultra High Definition

Offering 4k Ultra HD standards, the 65HU8500 provides the very latest in high definition entertainment. It supports the HEVC video compression standard, which makes it possible to stream UHD content over the internet. It also supports HDCP 2.2, which ensures UHD content is correctly displayed.

The U8500 is compliant with HDMI 2.0, which can support Ultra HD video playback at up 60 frames per second. HDMI 2.0 cables can transfer high definition signals between your TV and set-top box or console.

Superb viewing with the latest technology

Enjoy the very best entertainment thanks to the four-step UHD upscaling technology. This technology converts lower resolution content such as live TV and Blu-ray discs to sharper images, so you can watch your favourite TV shows in the detail they deserve. With more detail and clarity, you won't miss a thing.

It also includes Ultra HD dimming technology. UHD dimming adjusts the colour, contrast and detail for every image, providing optimised settings for every single image you see. The Precision Black backlight dimming deepens black tones and boosts whites for pure clarity and contrast.

Stunning images

Whether you're settling down to your favourite dramas or watching the latest action blockbuster, the UE78H-U8500 presents it at its best. The Samsung Ultra Clear Panel prevents the overlapping of images on your screen by efficiently absorbing external light, reducing the light reflected on your screen.

Samsung's PurColour technology produces true-to-life colour for natural-looking scenes on your TV.

Superior Smart features and twin tuners

Whatever you want to watch, you'll be able to find it on the UE78HU8500 Smart Curved LED TV. It includes a full suite of catch-up TV services, including all the favourites such as BBC iPlayer, 4oD and ITV Player, as well as BBC Sport and BBC News to keep you up to date.

View your favourite web pages and more from the comfort of your sofa, or catch up with friends and follows thanks to the Facebook and Twitter applications. There are even more apps available at the integrated app store.

With both Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners built-in, you can watch a range of channels without needing to worry about paying monthly subscriptions or fees.

Evolving television

Samsung's Smart Evolution means that you can keep your TV up to date without needing to replace your set every few years. This unique kit can re-engineer and renew your TV so it can deal with the latest technology for performance, content and features.

Now you can keep your TV at the cutting edge at the fraction of the cost of replacing your television.

Five year guarantee

The UE78HU8500 TV comes with a reassuring five year guarantee, so you'll be able to enjoy your favourite home entertainment for years to come.

With an eye-catching design and packed full of the latest entertainment technology, the Samsung UE78HU8500 Smart 3D 4k Ultra HD 78" Curved LED TV will change the way you watch TV.

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.
