Over the last 100 years, there have been massive leaps in the evolution of TV technology. From tiny screens in huge cabinets, to huge screens with no cabinet. From black & white to glorious colour. Truly amazing!

James came and wall mounted a 77 inch LG C9 as well as a 85 inch Sony X95 (and two soundbars) at my home. His attention to detail and knowledge were second to none and he made sure that the installations were neat but accessible to cater for future expansions. He offered solutions that were practical and cost efficient and had the foresight to troubleshoot any potential obstacles that needed to be overcome and recommended practical solutions.Aside from the above, James is very personable and is a top bloke. I would definetly engage Pro TV'S services again in the future.Top quality. Regards,Ciaran

From start to finish James from Pro TV was amazing, extremely professional and an all round great guy. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and having the prices listed on the website was a bonus.James completed his work with precision and was considerate in offering advice on placement and height. He future proofed the set up with additional HDMI cables, which is great for things like soundbars and video game consoles. It is these little things that highlight his professionalism and customer care. The whole set up looks sleek and James also stuck around to run me through some features, which was much appreciated. Thanks James and Pro TV.

James at Pro TV Perth provided great service and quality workmanship. Very friendly and he even helped me take a small change table upstairs. Above and beyond. I’d recommend him to anyone.
14:52 29 Oct 19
Professional, quality and prompt service. James knows what he’s doing and saved me hours upon hours of trying to hang 2 tvs by myself. For the price of tvs today it’s well worth having a professional do the job. He wasn’t in a rush and fully explained all wiring options available which would best suit me. Worth mentioning that he also connected my existing hifi system and it sounds amazing. Pete

Really pleased with the service and price. James was excellent at communicating with me prior to coming to my house. He arrived on time and did a fantastic and efficient job at putting up a new 75inch TV as well as relocating the existing 55inch TV to another room.

Very pleased and would highly recommend.

Pro TV Perth has wall mounted 5 Samsung TV's for me now and I continue to reuse James as because he provides not only a quality service but an affordable price. He has always been prompt and willing to go above and beyond to complete the job. If you are looking at getting your TV wall mounted look no further. I have tried many others and no one compares to James from Pro TV Perth.
