Apparently Panasonic will be offering free five year warranties with their TVs purchased in Oct. This may only apply to specific tvs but this is the thread that mentions it.http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=621971
This scheme ran last yearhttp://www.takehollywoodhome.co.uk/
but was limited to some plasmas.....
So if you're thinking of buying a Panasonic telly soon you may want to hold off till Oct (unless you're getting it from John lewis..)
