Buy, unbox, and off you go! Several devices now available from MediaMarkt ready to use

Ingolstadt, 02.04.2019: You’ve just bought that much-anticipated electronic device and now you’re looking forward to getting to grips with it! But there’s often a fly in the ointment: countless software updates for your laptop, sluggish channel scan on your new TV receiver, while updating the maps on your satnav takes so long that you’ve no time to drive anywhere afterwards! But MediaMarkt has now solved problems like this at a stroke by offering Quick Start devices at its 275 stores throughout Germany. Selected laptops, PCs, satnavs, TV receivers and games consoles as well as smartphones and tablet computers are now available already set up and ready to use – it’s just a matter of “Purchase, unbox, and off you go!” MediaMarkt has expanded its Quick Start service to give its customers more time and more fun!

Back in summer 2018, MediaMarkt launched Quick Start – a full-service package for the initial setup of newly purchased technical devices. And now MediaMarkt is expanding Quick Start by selling selected, specially marked products in various categories already set up, checked and ready to go. They include laptops, PCs, satnavs, TV receivers and games consoles as well as smartphones and tablets.

Updates all installed, smartphone screens fully protected

The advantages of MediaMarkt’s Quick Start devices are obvious: no more time-consuming initial setup, all the latest updates already installed, and the device has passed a functional check. The exact services provided under the Quick Start label vary depending on the product type. For example, regarding notebooks and PCs, it means that all the Windows updates available have been installed. Meanwhile, new satnavs will guide customers smoothly to their destination since all the internal maps are already up to date when it’s unpacked. TV receivers arrive with station scan already completed. And even games consoles can be used immediately since all the available updates have been installed and the controllers have already been synced. What’s more, the Quick Star versions of smartphones and tablets come with a professionally applied screen protector. There’s no need to fiddle about trying to put on the protective film yourself without any air bubbles. By the way, this service also extends to phones with edge and curved displays.

Quick Start devices augment MediaMarkt’s Quick Start service

Quick Start items supplement MediaMarkt’s existing Quick Start service. This gives customers an opportunity to have their electronic devices individually set up after purchase. As well as performing initial set-up, updating and a functional check, the experts from MediaMarkt can also personalize devices by setting up user accounts as well as Google or iOS accounts and even install software purchased separately – just the way you want!
