        Geek Squad will take care of the one setup you paid for, then provide technical support for your network via phone, web or other for one year. If Geek Squad needs to revisit your home they will charge a discounted rate of 49.99$.

          No, you would need to purchase another set of services called TV Connect & Mounting.

            Hello - this Home Wifi Setup and Support service is to setup a new router or to troubleshoot your existing network. For advice on cutting the cord, I would recommend speaking with a Blue Shirt at your local Best Buy Store in the Home Theater department. They could talk to you about the different streaming media players and/or smart TVs available and discuss current promotions or options around content providers. Geek Squad and Magnolia Home Theater do offer a free in-home consultation to talk through the different service and hardware solutions available to you for setting up the Home Theater of your dreams.

            Answer

            So a Geek Squad agent will physically go to your residence and set up your router. They will connect your wireless devices to that network such as smart TV's, tablets, game console, etc. Once the agent is gone, they will provide 24/7 support to assist your network if you have any issues for that 1 year duration. They will only assist you with networking not fixing PC's or removing Viruses.

              Hi Faith - The year of support would be for your network... Making sure all of your internet enabled devices connect to the network and that your network stays up & running. It would not include cleaning of your computer.

              Answer

              Home WiFi Setup & Support is for the setup and maintenance of your Router and connectable devices. If you just need your TV Setup and Sound System installed, then yes, you would need to purchase a different service.

                Yes you need to have internet service from another company. All they are doing is setting up the wireless router/modem/extender/repeater that you purchase from them.
