    I think you misunderstand what a discussion forum about PPI is intended for.

    The insurance section would be best.

    Most contents insurance policies include televisions in them as standard.

    Agreed. Just to clarify for the OP - pretty much all of the "Home Contents" insurance policies give you the option - for an additional premium - of covering "Accidental Damage". This is what you want to be taking out.

    Ignoring the last sentence.

    All content insurances will have an excess - £25 is very low. But none of them cover breakdown which is what I think the OP wants. They are for theft, accidental damage.
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Correction: my home insurance excess limit is 250gbp so will not be suitable to claim using it.

    the previous policy provider won't sell to me again as they only sell for goods bought from ebay! that's the point i was trying to make !!

    Its not worth paying to insure a television worth £65.

    I read it as OP was paying £65 to insure a television? Not worth it either imo
    A witty saying proves nothing
