What is the difference between the DIRECTV PROTECTION PLAN PREMIER and coverage plans sold by retailers?


There are several advantages to this plan versus the typical plan sold by retailers. Features include:

  • An upgrade to the latest equipment every 2 years
  • Low monthly payment instead of a large one-time payment.
  • Computer coverage includes not only computers/laptops/tablets, but selected accessories as well.
  • Premium technical services included at no additional charge.
  • Television coverage includes all of the LED, LCD, plasma televisions in a household, not just one TV. Standard remote controls also included.
  • Does not expire until you cancel the service.
  • Can be cancelled at any time.
  • No need to find receipts or warranty paperwork to have a claim fulfilled.
  • Optional Accidental Damage from Handling (ADH) coverage for laptops, netbooks, and tablets is available for only $4.99 more a month.
