TV Extended Warranty Asurion

You've been eyeing a new smart TV for your living room for a while now. You've done your research and set your sights on a 65-inch QLED TV. Now, whether you've added it to your online shopping cart or physically hauled it up to the checkout counter at the store, you're asked the same question, "Would you like to buy the extended warranty for your Smart TV?" All that research... and you're not sure. Do you really need an extended warranty on a TV? What does it even cover? How do I file a claim on my TV if something happens?

That's where we come in. For more than 20 years, Asurion has helped millions of customers to protect and get the most out of their tech. And we're here to talk you through the ins and outs of TV extended warranties and why they're a smart purchase.

What is a TV extended warranty?

Most TV manufacturers provide a one-year warranty that starts when you buy the TV. An extended warranty is a protection plan that extends past the manufacturer's warranty. It offers peace of mind that your investment is protected—especially in those situations where your TV starts acting weird a few days after the manufacturer's warranty expires.

No matter the size or style of your TV, an Asurion warranty protection plan makes the repair process easy with great benefits like first-class service, 24/7 claim filing and real-time updates. According to a recent survey, 3 out of 5 respondents said they would be lost without their TVs. With an extended warranty, you can protect your investment and get back to watching the shows and movies you love in no time.

So when life happens and your TV won't turn on, or you're seeing lines on your TV screen, or your TV's smart functions start to not act so smart anymore, we're there to help your tech get back to performing at its best.
