3D TV Adds a Third Dimension to Home Insurance

As Sky launches its 3D channel Swinton Insurance is warning homeowners who choose to invest in expensive 3D TVs and specialist glasses to ensure they have adequate contents insurance.

As new technology is developed, it always carries a premium price when it first hits the shop and a top of the range 3D TV and glasses can cost in excess of £4,000.

While most homes up and down the country have invested in high definition TVs, 3DTV is somewhat more expensive, so homeowners will need to protect this investment.

Swinton, the UK’s leading high street retailer of home insurance is warning homeowners to check their policies to make sure any additional expensive items are covered.

Steve Chelton, Insurance Development Manager at Swinton said, “New technologies always carry a high price tag so homeowners need to double check their home insurance policies to make sure they are covered. It may be a good idea to ensure that your policy covers TV’s for accidental damage and if not add it to your policy in case of any mishaps.”

Swinton has identified the top 3D TVs currently on the market

  • Samsung PN50C8000
  • Panasonic TC-P58VT25
  • LG Infinia 55LE9500
  • Samsung LED 9000
  • Panasonic Viera TC-P54VT25
