  • TV on–wall installation starting at $199
  • TV recycling for $50
  • Video game console set-up for $99

Zip, which has a network of 16,000 installers, has partnered with countless retailers including, Office Depot , TigerDirect, CompUSA, Circuit City and BJ’s Wholesale.

Target’s TV and installation roll comes on the heals of Walmart and Sam’s Club announcing an installation program run by NEW Customer Service Companies.

Best Buy offers installation through its Geek Squad. Sears, meanwhile, uses ServiceLive for its installation program.
