Buy your TV stands from JTV and ensure you are getting the best deal around with the cheapest prices on the internet! On top of this, we offer free delivery and a free HDMI cable. You can barely afford not to!
Well as we seem to have already had our summer for this year, we are going to do another round up of the weeks DVDs, so that you can spend the drizzly weekend curled up watching a good film and not outdoors bracing the less than desireable weather conditions.
The Quartet- Full to the brim of greats, this film is about a retirement home with a difference, specifically designed for former artists including former opera singers, Cissy, Reginald and Wilf (Billy Connolly). Although once in a quartet, the three still take part in an annual concert to celebrate the birth of Verdi. As the fourth member arrives, Jean (Maggie Smith) things get a little more complicated as the die-hard diva (and Reginald's ex wife) begins hostilities and dramatic flare!
The Impossible- Based on true experiences, The Impossible is the account of a family caught, along with tens of thousands of strangers in the mayhem of one of the worst natural disasters of our time. The terror is positioned next to unexpected displays of courage, kindness and compassion from strangers. The story is touching and really touches the human heart.
Alex Cross- For those of you who prefer a little more action in your movies, then the cat and mouse face off between Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox in this action thriller will be right up your street. When Cross meets his match in a serial killer, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits.
With a film for every taste, lets not bother leaving home this weekend!

Well even though the sun has finally graced us with its presence, it doesn't mean that we will stop bringing you the DVD round up! This week we're bringing you films that are so enthralling that they may even stop you from enjoying this rare warm weather.
1. The Hobbit- this week sees the release of the Tolkien film that has divided critics. With a marmite approach to fantasy fans, The Hobbit follows the journey of elves, dwarves, wizzards and a hobbit and how they come across the infamous ring. Based on a children's book (and consequently creating a children's film) Lord of the Rings fans might find the film a little tame, but the rolling New Zealand back drop, and higher than HD filming means the movie is a stunning watch!
2. Schindler's List- as the 20th anniversary of this oscar winner has fallen this year, we're recommending that you give it another watch. Although not necessarily an enjoyable three hours, Liam Neeson fights for the rights of the Jewish people during the Nazi ruling in Germany, creating a masterpiece of cinema that leaves viewers thoroughly moved.
3. Here Comes the Boom- Kevin James heads up yet another comedy as a school teacher who takes up the martial arts to save his school. If you need a bit of a lift after you've watched Schindler's List, this film doesn't require a lot of thought, but is a feel good comedy-drama that rallies everyone together as Kevin James, (with support from Henry 'The Fonz' Winkler) becomes a inspirational sensation throughout the school.
To ensure you have the perfect viewing experience of these instant classices, grab yourself a Elite Media TV stand, we're limited on stock, so purchase now to avoid disappointment!

As our most popular TV stand, the S4 sells really well, and just to give it the glory it deserves, we've decided to do a spotlight on the Off The Wall Origin II S4 and tell you all about this unique stand.
Firstly this stand is built, not only for any TV but also for any environment coming in seven different colour combinations, with black, silver, white combined with oak, walnut or cherry bases to meet your requirements. We recommend this stand for those who enjoy a larger TV from 37-55 inches inclusive and of course it includes our infamous cable management system, to avoid the unsightly wire mess you get behind your TV!
As the upgrade to the Origin S4, a 40 degree swivel motion has been introduced, that means anywhere in the room, you can easily view your TV, Off The Wall have also used an adjustable height feature so that you can choose how high your TV stands, this makes it an essential end-of-the-bed TV with over a metre in height.

We even give JTV customers the opportunity to purchase extra shelves, and a complimenting soundbar brackets get your all your AV equipment secure in one place.
Don't for get your free HDMI cable!
We hope you love your bank holiday weekend! Although the weather is far from what you expect at this time of year, there's no reason we can't enjoy a roast dinner and lots and lots of chocolate!
We're back for another round up of this week's hottest DVD releases, and if I'm honest its a bit slim pickings, but with this ridiculously wintery weather (it's nearly April!) I'll watch pretty much anything to avoid leaving the house. So gracing your telly's this week are, Seven Pyschopaths, Rise of the Guardians and The Hunt.
1. Seven Psychopaths- If you liked In Bruges, you will love this black comedy with all star cast including Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson as a group of three friends are pursued by the wrath of an L.A gangster (Harrelson) after they steal his prize winning Shih Tzu. This ridiculously hilarious storyline and talented acting squad make Seven Pyschopaths a truly entertaining film.
2. Rise of the Guardians- Based on the William Joyce children's books dreamworks bring us another epic production of mythical characters teaming up to save the world. With quite a star studded voice cast of Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Alec Baldwin and Jude Law, Rise of the Guardians is definitely worth a watch.
3. The Hunt- This thriller/drama involves misdirection and accusations when a recently divorced primary school teacher is untruthfully accused of acting abusively towards his son's young friend. The Hunt is on as Lukas tries to clear his name, when even his closes friends condemn him.
Wrap up in your warmest blanket and watch these three new releases, lets not brave the elements this weekend, snow's abit boring now!
Make sure your TVs in perfect working order and on the correct stand as it's going to be a long 4 day-easter weekend! Just a suggestion, but here's one of our best selling stands of the minute for you to take a look at!
Why is it such a big deal that we give an HDMI cable for free with every order? Well, not only are we saving you a few quid, and being pretty generous in the mean time, your free HDMI cable that we give away with every single JTV stand that we sell, but we are also giving you a great piece of kit that will help get all your viewing equipment together and working quickly.
HDMI stands for high definition multimedia interface, and saves you from having the dreaded messy, spaghetty wires that you come to expect in every living room behind the TV, as it houses both audio and visual together in one place. Not only this, but it also provides two-way communication between your DVD, games console and now laptops too! You now have the opportunity to use your TV as a second screen for your laptop, due to the introduction of HDMI ports to most modern laptops (which basically means you don't have to buy an internet enabled TV- just yet!).
By using your free HDMI cable from Just TV Stands, you can look at files, photos, watch videos, and do your work, on your big screen TV (you won't need your reading glasses anymore!). You will now be able to view your favourite YouTube videos on your TV, and with this in mind, here is JTVs top video of the minute, it's truly amazing!
It's red nose day, and we we have all been raising money for Lenny Henry (I think I may have got that a little wrong) and at JTV we have had a bake off! We all tested our culinery skills and enjoyed a variety of interesting creations whilst raising money for Comic Relief! We are feeling rather stuffed now, but have loved every bit. The winning cake has to be the Mojito cake! Trust us, it really works.
Buying your furniture for your house or flat can be a difficult task. From choosing your colour scheme, the materials you're going to use, to manouvering it round in a tetras style puzzle until it all fits perfectly, your new furniture can leave you with a headache by the time you've acquired it all.
Sometimes once you have your sofas, tables and chairs set out correctly and looking the part, the space for your TV and stand can seem really small. But fear not, because JTV have a range of TV stands, specifically designed for those with a smaller living room!
1. Our first stand comes from Off The Wall and is their extremely popular Origin II S1. On our site we have a number of stands from this range, and as the number goes up (s1, s2, s3 etc) the size gets bigger! The S1 stand uses a main column design, with adjustable glass shelves, and a unique cable management system to keep your space tidy and organised, with lots of space for AV equipment!
Dimensions: 500w x 584d x 869h
2. The second of our smaller stands is the Alphason Fine Wood. This stand has a real wood veneer finish in black with an open design and shelves to house all the equipment you have with your TV. Like most of our stands, the cable management features helps you to save even more space by housing all your wires at the back.
Dimension: 750w x 505h x 450d
3. Our third smaller stand is the Off The Wall Skyline, that comes in with a width of 750mm. Made up of three toughened, safety-glass shelves, this stand has a cable management system, 1 years manufacturers warranty, a sleek and modern design and the capability to hold TVs up to 52 inches!
Dimensions: 750w x 451h x 572d
So you if you haven't got a lot of space for your TV, it doesn't have to mean a wall bracket, visit JTV to see the range of smaller stands that we offer!
Out This Week on DVD
A regular feature on the JTV blog is our top 3 three dvd releases of the week, and this week brings you some exciting options, which is great as the weathermen have delivered us some wonderful news of cold weather and rain over the weekend and through the next week. Instead of braving the elements, relax and watch JTVs DVD recommendation.
1. 1. Argo- This Oscar winner documents the real life hostage crisis in Iran that saw 52 Americans held hostage for weeks in the U.S. Embassy. Ben Afleck directs and stars in the film as CIA specialist Tony Mendez who comes up with a plan so ridiculous that it can’t fail to get the six escaped Americans out of Tehran.
2. 2. Gambit- A Cohen Brother’s remake of a 1966 movie sees Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth play amusing, mis-match characters who are set on procuring a fantastic, but fake priceless piece of art for their curator, media tycoon boss. Well watchable and amusing, the film harks back to its 1960s predecessor, with lots of modern fun.
3. 3. The Sapphires- Chris O’Dowd of IT Crowd fame plays music producer Dave who spots sisters Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay, as the next new soul actor in 1968. Billed as Australia’s answer to The Supremes, the film is touching and heart-felt true life story that celebrates, love and family.
With these out this week, what more do you need for a relaxing weekend? Maybe a stand to place your flat screen upon? As we’ve just had a delivery of the Norstone Esse stand, then it would be a shame for you not to hear about it. This unique ‘S’ shaped stand can be bought in black, white or frosted class and has three shelves to house all your AV equipment, DVDs, CDs and games!
For a limited time only, we have added a brand new stand to our Jual collection, the unique and attractive Jual 203 850! Slightly smaller than our original Jual 203, the 850 is built to fit a smaller space, with a unique and modern, curved design available in oak and walnut.
Using the striking s-shaped curves, expected of the 203, this stand features piano black glass shelves that compliment any AV equipment set and looks complete unique, and different to all other TV stands available.
If you are worried about your cables, ruining the look of your slick new TV stand, then don’t fear as this stand (like a lot of JTV’s models) has a cable management system, keeping your stand looking neat and tidy, no matter how much equipment you have!
The stand comes in at w850 x d560 x h500 is perfect for TVs up to 37 inches, and carries a top weight of 70kg. Each shelf can hold up to 20kg and will look great in any home due to its walnut, or oak finishes.
We expect the beautiful Jual 203 850 stand to fly off the shelves, particularly with its limited stock, so buy now to avoid disappointment!
To extend the ever popular Peerless American cities range of TV stands, JTV have headed to the east coast to pick up the brand new Boston TV stand!
Using the classic Peerless corner friendly design, the D shaped stand is available in black, with a folding down door covered storage area for AV equipment or your favourite DVDs.
The key features of this stand include, an overall sizing of 900w x 450d x 460h, a 540w x 380d x 200h internal storage space, soft open hinges, comprehensive cable tidy, a max top shelf weight of 60kg and toughened safety glass.
There's no need to worry abour your AV equipment being housed within the class doored cabinet as uses unique beam through technology, meaning you will still be able to use all your remote controls.
We have the Peerless Boston stand for sale at £174.99, so grab yours while our trial stocks last!
One of the most unique range of stands on the JTV site, and one we're particularly pleased to be selling is Underneath The Mango Tree.
Not only do these stands look special, with a traditional, yet modern look using top quality solid mango wood, but they also come ready built, saving you time and effort when your stand is delivered!
Due to the hand made nature of these products, we don't offer our standard JTV free next day delivery as Humphrey needs two to three weeks to finish each stand, by hand, before they are fully built and sent to you.
On top of everything else, the stand has lots of storage space to house all your AV equipment, DVD players and more, plus three drawers to keep your TV area cable, and clutter free!
Although £460 can seem like a lot of money to invest in a TV Stand, the handcraftsmanship on both Under The Mango Tree stands, is second to none, and our customers claim they are 'worth every penny!'. Take a look at our range here.
On the annual day of love wherever you are, and despite the fact that its the same day every year, and the shops have been advertising it since January, the likelihood is that you will be rushing round today, trying to source the perfect, romantic gift before your partner comes home from work is quite high. From all at JTV, we are not envious, but we do wish you luck and love!
For all of you singletons out there, the only answer to the comercial and slightly sickly holiday, is to stay in with some friends, avoiding the loved-up masses, over crowded and over priced restaurants is to watch some really good films, and that's we're rounding up this weeks DVD releases for your viewing pleasure.
1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower- Admittedly one for the ladies, this film has received rave reviews as a modern classic that follows teenagers through the highs, lows, loves, losses and fears as they grow up and forge life-long friendships.
2. Taken 2- Action fans take note, the sequal the blockbuster 'Taken' sees Liam Neeson battle his way through a myriad of obstacles using his 'particular set of skills' to save his daughter from ruthless Albanian kidnappers.
3. Sinister- Struggling true crime writer Ellison, moves his family to the spooky scene of his current project, the gruesome murder of a normal suburban family. Little does he know that his investigation will put his family in real mortal danger.
Three completely different movies, to suit whatever your taste this weekend when you celebrate your 'anti' Valentine's day!
Particularly for film number three we recommend lights down, pop corn and sweets, and cushions at the ready, along with the Jual High Gloss JF018 TV stand that is perfect for all TV types, giving you lots of storage space and a great height for any living room!
If you, like many, have noticed that your TV screen is getting bigger, your pixels are getting smaller, and the picture on your TV is now so realistic that you find yourself ducking and diving to avoid flying objects in your favourite Hollywood blockbuster, then you may have noticed a different situation with your sound quality.
As TVs get thinner, the sound quality of the built in speaker systems isn’t improving, as fitting a loudspeaker into such a small enclosure means that it won’t be able to reproduce a full range of audio frequencies, leaving you with a relatively quiet tinny sound, and the need for a soundbar speaker system.
By adding a soundbar to your TV set up, your sound quality can match the visuals on your TV and lead to an overall, perfect viewing experience. Although you may be concerned about yet more wires to clutter your living room and TV area, you don’t have to be as this is where we come in.
As well as offering an easy to fit soundbar bracket to suit any make of soundbar system to your TV.
(ensuring that the picture and sound come from a matching location) all your cables and wires are taken care of with any stand from our Off The Wall tv stand range, which include a unique cable management system.
Our Off The Wall Origin S4, S3, S2 and S1 all come with a back panel designed specifically to house all the cables coming from and going to your TV, so that instead of a spaghetti of unidentifiable wires coming from all angles behind your tv (cleverly hidden by an indoor potted plant) you can have your TV anywhere in the room and enjoy no wires and no mess.
To take a look at what this could look like in your home visit our site and take a look at the products:
At JTV we always want out customers to be in the know, so here is a spotlight on soon-to-be-sold-out extremely popular TV stand; the Off The Wall Motion! Our Off The Wall products are always popular with our customers, and the Motion is no exception, and with only three left in stock you better get buying quickly to ensure you don't miss out.
The Off The Wall Motion TV stand features the ever-popular cable management system, that Off The Wall is famous for, fits TVs from 35-55 inches screens and with a 40 degree swivel that means no matter where you are in your room, you'll be able to watch your favourite TV show.
Not only is the Off The Wall Motion easy to assemble, but it is also fully adjustable with a height that allows for 24cm of adjustability. Like all our TV stands the Motion fits all brands of TVs and the fully adjustable shelves mean that you can fit your DVD player, set top box and AV system on your stand easily, and combined with your cable management system, your TV stand will look stylish, but also neat (without those unsightly cables that our TVs so easily attract)!
Order before 2pm on a weekday (exc. Fridays) and you can even have your TV stand set up and running before Eastenders the next day! (Our couriers, City Link will have your stand delivered to you between 8 and 5:30pm the day after you place your weekday order.)
As it is currently reduced from £269.99 to £258.00, you can hardly afford not to, so get it now before it's gone!
Like we needed any more reason not to leave the house this week? Not only has there been an epic snow fall, but it has also surpassed the white, fluffy and Christmas-card-esque appearance, and it now resembles a browny-grey depressing slush puppy. Avoiding the snow is easy this week, especially with the release of three very different, but equally exciting films on dvd to watch on your TV (on top of your JTV stand) in the comfort of your own home.
The 'fondly remembered' Sylvester Stalone take on the Judge is well and truly in the past now as this dark and violent comic book fantasy film follows Judge Dredd fighting the deathly hold of the slo-mo drug on the baron and irradicated wasteland of Washington DC.
2. The Sweeney
Ray Winstone is at his most comfortable in The Sweeney as a maverick Detective Inspector, working hard to inforce the law within the armed and dangerous, modern, criminal underworld, with a little help from Plan B!
3. Anna Kerenina
A theatrical take on the 'greatest book ever written' sees Kiera Knightly struggle with her two lovers, constrained by the rules off the time, 1874 Moscow and the care of her son.
The only question now is which of these three Hollywood blockbusters will grace your TV set this cold evening? Before you sit down to enjoy your choice, make sure you have the perfect stand for your viewing pleasure. Our Peerless New Orleans stand is great for TVs up to 60inches with lots of space for all your AV equipment, set top boxes and, of course, your three new DVDs!
We're always on the look out at JTV for the latest developments in our industry and we're particularly excited about the changes to our tellys that we may see in 2013. If 2012 was the year of the 3D TV, then 2013 has got a lot coooler. and is predicted by many to be the year of the Apple TV.
Industry experts have come to the opinion that 2013 will see the general release of an updated Apple TV system, housed within its own screen. This exciting step forward will combine your standard TV channels with the app store, your music, and even the pay per month film and TV providers such as Netflix and Love Film.
Other plans for 2013 will include meeting the increased desire for wireless devices, even in your living room! The idea of voice controlled sets has even been whispered, and although this sounds spectacular, at JTV we can see a few minor difficulties, when the lads are around for a beer to watch the football.
Expect bigger and thinner screens this year, but when it comes to mounting the 65inch beast in your living room, or pointing your sofa to where your TV stands majestically, feel assured that JTV can meet all your requirements. From tall slick aluminium space saving devices, to classy corner pieces in walnut and oak, JTV will ensure that your new TV will look great for 2013.
As 2013 begins, and we look forward to new beginnings and fresh starts (and away from the end of the Mayan calendar!), JTV welcomes a new member of the team. Say hello to Claire Sykes. Some customers may have already spoken to Claire, who joined the team in December, to help make JTV even better for the new year. Amongst other things, Claire willl be manning the phones and continuing to deliver the excellent service that you expect with every JTV order.
We wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!
After a bit of an absence on the news front we thought we better keep you updated as to why we have been so quiet recently. Here at JTV Towers we have been working furiously on a new look JTV website. We have a all new basket and checkout area coming very soon, with a new homepage and product pages on the way in the not too distant future. WE CAN'T WAIT TO PUT THEM LIVE!
In other news, Samsung have pushed the limits of what is possible again with this fantastic looking Transparent Smart Window. We are still considering how we are going to make a stand to fit this :-)
We won't leave it so long next time.
We have some fabulous news to share with you all this afternoon. After a long time hoping, wishing and waiting, we have just got a new JTV Puppy here at JTV Towers!!! The team is loving the new member of the crew! Introducing Lilly...
She is exploring her new place of work and getting a serious amout of attention from the rest of the team.
In other news, we have been loving the plentiful 5 star reviews that you, our customers, have been awarding us over the beginning of 2012. We are so glad that you appreciate all our hard work and effort that we put in to delivering you the best TV stands at the best possible prices. What our customers think of us is our main concern. Anything less than 5 star service is not acceptable by our standards.
As you know, we here at JTV Towers are always on the look out for exciting products and topics to share with you. Well here is the latest company to catch our eye:
Looking for a unique piece of Handmade Silver Jewellery, well your search has ended. Silver Ink Tree have been making designer contemporary silver jewellery since 2004 and have just launched a new Silver Jewellery website showing all their amazing creations.

Be sure to head over to Silver Ink Tree to buy that unique piece of handmade jewellery online.
So with the new year well under way we thought it only fair to introduce some new stands to the JTV range. The team trawled the web and supplier catalogues to find some appropriate products for our customers. Once we found the best of the best we got on the blower and placed some orders.
Today we came in to work, fired up the forklift, unloaded the deliveries from the wagons and admired the new stands!
With a mixture of Gecko, Off the Wall and Jual products there is plenty to choose from. We will have them up on the website later today once we've checked them over, so come back soon to see them for yourselves!
Happy Tuesday from JTV!
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM EVERYONE HERE AT JTV! The team had a fabulous Christmas break although we were struggling with all the orders we received. The couriers had a meltdown nationwide, Santa wrote to us to complain about the number of stands he had to make and we had to endure the worst rain and wind we had ever seen. But after all that we sat down, opened presents and seriously over ate. BOOM!
So since we came back and recovered from Christmas we have enjoyed the coverage from CES 2012 in Las Vegas. Of course we sent our very own representative to introduce JTV to the world stage, and who better for the job than our very own.....Leslie Chow from the order dispatch department.
I cannot imagine anything better to mount your brand new LG 55" OLED (largest in the world) TV to than one of our fantastic Origin S4 TV stands. Don't just take our word for it, ask LG.
We won't leave it as long until our next update as we eagerly await the arrival of the 2012 Six Nations Tournament. Top tip for the betting community out there, England to win!
Enjoy your weekend guys.
After a final week of brilliant UK sunshine, the JTV team are wrapping up for the cold months ahead. The team are all rested up after enjoying sun drenched destinations around the globe. Laura enjoyed a fabulous day out in Mexico, Joe went to France to eat raw garlic and drink wine and Ollie enjoyed a trip to Skipton. James is the final member to return after an action packed week in Turkey where he tried swimming for the first time. He said it was an enjoyable experience and everyone should try it, but the arm-bands do chafe a bit.
So back to the Winter clothes and snow, but on a plus note our TV screens will once again be graced with excellent shows such as Top Gear, Blue Bloods, Strike Back and Spooks. Also we can look forward to the biggest video game launch since Golden Eye on N64 all those years ago. Yes I am talking about the amazing and mind boggling Battlefield 3.
A perfect time I think you'll agree, to get your A/V furniture sorted for that PS3 and home cinema system that is currently sitting in a heap on the floor with wires everywhere.

One last issue to cover in this issue of JTV News is the disappointing arrival of the new iPhone. The iPhone 4S has arrived but unfortunately there is no sign of an iPhone 5 yet. I guess the JTV team will just have to go to the new Nokia Windows phone with NFC technology when it's released instead. Shame on you Apple!
After 3 years of waiting the Digital Switchover has finally arrived here for us at JTV! Old analogue BBC 2 has been switched off this morning and shall no longer grace our flat screens with such shows as Top Gear and Mock the Week.

With the new finishes for 2011 hitting JTV shelves last week the new Gecko stands are flying out. Impressed at their popularity Charlie, James and Matt are struggling to keep up with demand. With the initial product launch price been lowered in celebration of these new products JTV customers literally bit our fingers off, however, all good things must come to an end. We put the prices back up the RRP of £249.99, which in our opinion is a great price for a stand which offers so many features. These features range from smooth opening doors, infra-red friendly glass, cable management and many more. These features are across the entire range, whether it be a reflect 1100 or the Impro. So what are you waiting for, get browsing the Gecko TV stands range here at JTV for the best deals and service. Click here to go to the Gecko range.
Whilst the whole of London is under lock down due to the state visit of Obama, equally important things are happening at JTV towers. Amid discussions of forgien policy in the Middle East and methods to calm socio-economic unrest during these tough times the JTV team has been meeting regulary to discuss not only their policies on the above issues but that of driving sales. The aforementioned problems are near to being solved but in the mean time Mathew has lead a strong policy of cutting prices across the range. In conjunction we are still offering our free next working day delivery and a free HDMI cable. So what are you waiting for?
The old boys are back at the helm; Charlie and James are back in force. After a spell away secconded to various other projects, management felt it was time to roll out some old pro's. Wading in after some time away Charlie got stuck straight away into driving sales. It's safe to say that he hasn't lost it. With TV stand facts and stats ever ready on the tip of his tongue, Charlie has answered questions quickly and effectively reassuring customers that we have the right stand for them.
James has been steadily tackling the email questions and the site maintence with subtle ease. Between the two of them all bases have been covered. So with new Alphason stock and a warehouse full of Origin S4's, Geckos and Jual stands amongst others we definately have the stands for you.
Well the big Royal Wedding is nearly upon us and the excitement at JTV is certainly growing. JTV towers has been swamped with union jack bunting and a Wills & Kate mug has been spotted around the office, as of yet nobody has claimed ownership of the quite frankly hideous mug. What is certain is that Royal Wedding fever has hit the globe, with a global television audience estimated at over a billion, a quality viewing experience is essential and this is where JTV come in.
You have probably already purchased your brand new TV to watch the event and what better than a top quality TV stand to go with it. Check out our great range of Origin, Alphason and many more stylish stands online, we are sure there will be a TV stand to suit you. Hey we may even be able to do a special one-off Wills & Kate TV stand if this takes anyones fancy! Lets hope it is a day to remember for everyone, so get your brilliant TV stand from JTV and watch the proceedings in style.
Sometimes things can a have a little too much character. Like Lugi, Charlies green machine, who has seen some serious abuse. The JTV floor came under the same catagory. Although a lovely wide planked wooden floor, it really had seen better days. The chairs had marked round patches on the floor revealing the naked wood. Cometh' the hour, cometh' the man; well in this instance, men!
Charlie and James were charged with patching the worst parts of the floor. All went well and after a couple of hours, the men at work surveyed their good work and saw it was good. In the morning, it soon occured to them, that not always going with the grain appeared to have been a mistake. In some areas too much varnish had been applied, however, unconcerned the lads prepared themselves for the next evenings activities by purchasing some better equipment.
Called away on urgent business, Charlie was out of the game. Dom stepped into the fray, manning a roller and pole Dom cracked on with James. Not before Ashley had fired up the buffer to clean the floor (see picture). Once Ashley had finished the buffing, Dom and James got their varnish on. After many hours and coats the floor was done! Looking smarter than ever, the JTV staffers arrived the next morning, looking gob-smacked at the quality of the workmanship.
Not only is it a good time of year for children with all the chocolate but for workers too, coming up in the next couple of months, holidays galore! Its' not that we aren't excited by the marriage of Prince William and Kate; but the lovely little break is a nice bonus; so congratulations to the pair and thanks! Traditionally the easter break provides JTV with a surge in sales and if forecasts are correct the Royal Wedding will increase those sales. This is all looking great for JTV, extra sales, a longer bank holiday and some sweet spring weather thrown in.
One thing you can be sure of is that JTV will supply you with the best stands possible, from the exceptional Value Range right through to Gecko, Off the Wall, Alphason and the new Norstone range. All these stands are still delivered next day, for free (see delivery information for further details) and with a free HDMI cable. If that is not enough, we now have a premium HDMI cable, for just £16.99 this little number will enhance your picture and has an in-built ethernet cable to allow internet use.
JTV rarely has to look smart, but the time has finally come round for Charlie to smarten himself up. Realising he had to sort himself out, a trip to a local suit retailer was made. After minutes, and I mean minutes of trying on a suit, Charlie made his selection. Changing in the office, Charlie looked sharp, but he was soon brought down to earth when Dominic noticed he was still wearing his pumps. Charlie was quickly ordered to get home to get the old leathers on, to bring his feet in line with the rest of his body.
Apart from the above excitement, JTV has received some 'bang tidy' new stands direct from Lawtons we have added to the Techlink range with the B6B. Additionally the a new line to us from Norstone, new stands include the Esse and the Cinema. In line with usual Lawton stands they are of superb quality and at a price which might just surprise you. In conjunction we now stock a catagory 1 HDMI cable, coming in at 2 metres with gold plated connectors and capable of handling outputs to a 1080p screen, this little beaut won't disappoint. Retailing at a modest £16.99, this cable is a steal.
Stand aside Ford, Coke Cola and Microsoft; JTV is now the big dog when it comes to international business. We are not actually joking either, JTV is on its way to becoming a MNC. Well, ok, we are exaggerating a little bit. What has really happened is that we have set up our international shipping account with City Link. This has allowed us to ship stands left right and centre, starting in the Republic of Ireland then scooting an Alphason to Belgium and an Origin S4 to Spain. We have shipped to other European destinations recently but what has amazed us the most is how quickly they arrived and in top quality condition. Hats off to City Link for all their efforts, we are mightly impressed here at JTV towers.
Delivery to northern Europe is £50 going up to £60 for East and Southern Europe and for the Republic of Ireland, delivery is £20. In fact for Ireland on a number occasions, we have even managed next day delivery; so gone are those long waits for deliveries!
Here at JTV a little package arrived on the 9th, JTV staffers wouldn't be wrong for thinking that this package had spelled the death of TV stands. What was in the little box I hear you cry? Inside, there was a pair of 3D glasses with video screens in them. In the excitement the packaging soon went, and the little babies were fired up. It became apparent that as soon as Charlie had them on his chubby chase that they looked ridiculous, a cross between Stevie Wonder and Judge Dread. The picture quality was fair but nothing to rave about and in conjunction with the striking looks (not always a good thing) the entire office decided that the 'specs' would be relegated to that of useless gadget. It looks like there is some future for Alphason and Off The Wall for the time being!
Here at JustTVstands, we spend literally hours and hours looking into products; from amazing new Alphason stands to the ever increasing JTV value range. What often ponders us here at JTV is what sells and what doesn't. Some stands that we have high hopes for never quite make it or either prove to be a slow burner. Such as Charlie's Soul's, having seeked approval and duly made the order; the Souls cruised onto the JTV site. After over a year of being in stock, there is one solitary Soul remaining. Lets be honest, it's a good looking stand and has oodles of room for all those must have A/V accessories so why hasn't it flown out of the warehouse?
On the other hand, the Alphason Iconn ST870 appeared mid last week and since has dissppeared from our warehouse! At £229.99 it is £70 more expensive than the Soul and carries less equipment. This point is made once again with the Origin S4 (our best selling stand), coming in at £283.99 and as standard, can only carry 2 peices of equipment, the numbers don't quite stack up.
Yet both Alphason stands and Off the Wall stands (makers of the Origin S4) are made right here in blighty. This means that the stand is stocked by more people; therefore brand awareness is much higher on the two British brands. This could explain the dominance of Alphason and Off the Wall.
The beauty of Alphason and Origin being based in the U.K is that their customer support is second to none. We highly recommend any stand by either Alphason or Off the Wall, however, we would also suggest looking at many of the other brands which we stock here at JTV. Our current suppliers are:
Whilst we do love the Alphason's and Off the Wall stands, all the other stands and stockists are hand picked to meet our high expectations, even the JTV Value range is designed to surprise customers with the quality and design features from a lower priced stand. If you ever need any advice please get in touch via email; firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 3202 220.
JTV is well known around the world, as a first class provider of television stands and brackets. So we've decided to charter JTV's asendancy against the backdrop of world events. As you can see JTV has gone from strength to strength.
Here is a chart so you can see what we've been doing:
N.B: Please note that this is all a ridiculous joke and we don't even partially take ourselves this seriously
Being small and mobile gives JTV many advantages over other larger businesses, we can offer a reactive service which can be personal as well as automated.
We have personally delivered stands to customers in the past, called round to build up S4's and GT8 Centurions and had stands brought up to the office for pick up by customers, who always seem to have very small cars, resulting in squeezing in a stand in just that bit harder. And if you are brave enough to call us, then you will be lucky enough to speak to Matt, Charlie, Sally and James who between them keep tabs on all JTV happenings.
The result of all this effort is that here at JTV towers we receive some top class reviews which can be read in our customer testimonials and on the products reviews on each product page. We are very proud of these reviews, non of them are doctored in any way, these are the customers own words. The below is just a typical review, we receive here at JTV:
'10/10 for outstanding service and a great looking stand. From speaking to James who had a very helpful, friendly and yet relaxed manner and engaged with and answered my concerns, through to receiving the stand the very next day as promised. With Amazon, I would have had to pay £17 more, it is impersonal and I would have had to wait longer for delivery. The stand itself looks superb - it is a good mix of black and clear. I didn't want something all black as it looks too dense but I wanted to pick up the colour of the TV. This is perfect and a great design and quality. I am usually wary when reading glowing reviews but here I am giving one. I hope you go from strength to strength.'
6th January 2011!!!
Happy new year from all at JTV towers. Since the festive break there has been many changes here at JTV. For a start, the VAT has gone up by 2.5%, however, we have frozen our Origin and Off the Wall prices in order to help save JTV customers as much money as possible! In the spirit of things we are offering £5 off any stand, by simply entering 'jansale2011' into the voucher code box your basket the discount is applied to your final total. By using this code, the little extra tax imposed on consumers is actually negated, so take that George Osborne! If that wasn't enough we have lowered the price drastically on 5 stands which we feel just aren't appreciated but are cracking stands. These can all be viewed on our home page, in addition our value range has increased with 3 extra stands hand picked once again by our man on the ground Miko Vertanen. So all is not dull and dark this January!!!
Well it has happened, the JTV party of the year. The Christmas 'do' went down as well as all the beer and spirits that were provided! The party was held at what can only be described as giant tepee's joined together. Warming fires were dotted around the 'tents' ensuring the wintery chill did not spread through the party. With plenty of beer to wash down some excellent food, the JTV party dance off ensued swiftly. Putting in some impressive moves on the dance floor, the party quickly was escorted into Leeds city centre to rip up some tiles. With late returns all round JTV towers has been extremely quiet today with very little in the way of fast movement!
In the tradition of JTV it is time to down tools and head for a bar or any bar! The Origin S4, Skyline 1000 and every other stand in our range won't look after themselves so JTV is happy to welcome back Chris 'the jackhammer' Greenop for a stint of cover. Whilst the usual JTV suspects catch up on some post party rest. Chris has won the coveted JTV employee of the month for successfully wrangling the Alphason range and getting them organised on JTV; so it is safe to say Chris is more than qualified. As usual the post party report will follow, detailing all exploits in the name of fun. First the party must begin, it is safe to say all at JTV towers are on count down...
This month's top employee has been a tough one with many contenders.
