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

The Full HD Sony Bravia KDL42W829BBU Smart 3D 42" LED TV gives you a huge range of entertainment options in a cutting-edge design that completes your living room.

Stunning picture quality

Whether you're watching standard content or 3D extravaganzas, the KDL42 renders all your entertainment in pristine 1920 x 1080p Full HD resolution.

Its wide 42” screen is bolstered by X-reality Pro technology, which brings every detail to life. Whether you're marvelling at a majestic close-up in a documentary or browsing back through videos captured on your mobile phone, you'll be able to truly take in every visual element in the highest quality.

This smart picture technology intelligently analyses the type of scene on the TV, compares it to a huge internal image database, then sharpens edges and enhances details for a picture appearance that's both hyper-real and naturalistic.

Marvel at the individual hairs on an animal or the subtle nuances of your wedding photos.

3D vision at home

The Sony Bravia KDL-42W829 gives every scene an incredible sense of depth with its passive 3D technology. You'll be able to watch 3D Blu-ray movies, enjoy 3D TV broadcasts and make the most of web videos with this fine-tuned technology.

Two pairs of 3D glasses are included, providing you with extremely comfortable viewing.

A treasure trove of content

Smart TV gives you so much to enjoy. Find almost anything you want and create the ideal night in.

BBC iPlayer and Demand 5 let you catch up with loads of great programming, while Video Unlimited brings you blockbuster movies direct from the cinema. Netflix and Lovefilm are on hand to help you enjoy full seasons of hit shows.

Elsewhere, you can take in incredible sports using the BBC Sport app, whether you're into Formula 1, World Cup football or grand-slam tennis. There's also YouTube, so you can view favourite or trending videos on the big screen.

Choose what you want to view when you like.

Faster entertainment


This 42” progressive Sony W8 is significantly faster than previous models, starting and launching apps in mere seconds.

You can easily find the content you want using the fast, intuitive One-Flick Entertainment interface, which lets you use simple thumb gestures to cycle through TV channels, catch-up TV, film recommends and photos on your network.

It's all contained in a compact menu at the bottom of your screen that stays out of the way of whatever you're watching.

Exclusive TV modes

Have the full match day experience in your own home as Live Football Mode provides you with everything you need to get stuck into the footie.

Picture and sound settings are optimised to authentically recreate the feeling of being in a stadium, and the feature also lets you view the latest FIFA World Cup standings and videos of classic moments from World Cups gone by via YouTube.

TweetView lets you see what people everywhere are saying about the programme you're watching. You don't need a Twitter account – just choose one of the most appropriate keywords the TV suggests, or enter your own prompts to view comments as they scroll along the bottom of the screen. It's a much more social way to enjoy TV.

From mobile to TV

The Sony Bravia KDL-42W829BBU Smart 3D 42" LED TV also features Screen Mirroring, an ingenious way to view videos, photos, apps, web pages and games from your smartphone on your TV. Your phone or tablet connects wirelessly to the television, eliminating the need for annoying cables.

Audio from your device will also be recreated loud and clear through the 42W829, giving you a rounded experience. Use familiar swipe and zoom controls on your phone while viewing the results on the big screen. This excellent function works with any Miracast-compliant Android smartphone or tablet.

Good looking

A sleek, modern design allows the Bravia KDL42W829 to flawlessly merge with any living room layout whilst economising on space.

High-quality aluminium construction gives it a slender elegance that appears to float above its chrome stand – which can also be used a wall mount. Below the screen, a smart core picks up any interaction you make with the set by a softly cascading light.

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

Experience freer, more impressive entertainment with the Full HD Sony Bravia W829 Smart 3D 42" LED 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.
