Consider a Service Contract When Buying a TV for the Big Game

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – As football fans across the nation gear up to watch the big game this Sunday, many retailers are offering great deals on TVs.

The Service Contract Industry Council (SCIC) reminds consumers interested in purchasing a new TV that they should consider buying a service contract for peace of mind in the event their TV breaks or needs a costly repair.

“Due to the pandemic, more people will be watching the big game at home, and consumers who will be taking advantage of TV deals should also consider a service contract,” said Tim Meenan, Executive Director of SCIC. “A service contract makes replacing or repairing your TV more affordable and more convenient.”

A service contract, also referred to as an extended warranty, is a cost-effective way to protect a new TV beyond the terms provided by the manufacturer or seller’s warranty. Service contracts offer flexible benefits that may include discounted product repair and replacement, in-home repair service, 24-hour technical assistance, and major component coverage.

Most retailers sell service contracts for electronics at the point of sale. For more information about service contracts and a full list of SCIC providers, visit
