Blackbourn TV was established as a slot meter TV rental company in 1978 at the family home of Eric Blackbourn, his wife Val, and their sons Waine and Daren. In 1986 the business moved into its first retail location in Park Road, Sittingbourne where it grew steadily for 15 years before a lack of space prompted a move to the High Street in 2001.
At the time of opening their first store, Blackbourn TV were in competition with no fewer than 14 other Television rental and retail outlets in Sittingbourne, but over the years for various reasons, all but two have closed their doors.
Today, Blackbourn TV is the ONLY Family run Independent Home Entertainment specialist store in Sittingbourne town center, and the only store of its type within miles to offer such an extensive range of products and services.
Still owned and operated by brothers Waine and Daren, Blackbourn TV continues to grow with the help of its experienced staff within an ever changing and increasingly competitive industry. Being authorized retailers and installers of major manufacturers such as Panasonic, Denon, Marantz, Polk Audio, Humax and Roberts, ensures the company and its staff are constantly up to date with the latest technologies.
