Price Fixing @ Currys

I went to the Curry's store in Coventry last Friday to buy the Samsung UE40F800 LED TV. Priced at £1349, I noticed Curry's do a price match, so I scoured the Internet and found a company in Birmingham doing the exact model @ £1027.00. I asked the store manager to look at the deal and honour the price match deal, but to no avail.
It would seem that Curry's have a price fix on their TV's where they offer a FREE 5 year warranty which is NOT free. In fact, this is a CON. All TV's come with a manufacturers warranty, and under the consumer act they should be fit for the purpose, even after the warranty has run out you would still have a claim against the manufacturer.
WE the consumers should not be FORCED to buy products with extended warranties, and this price fixing is against the law.
I sent an email to Curry's customer care on Friday advising them of this, and they did not respond, but no surprise.
My next action is to notify Trading Standards and the BBC watchdog to make them aware of their price fixing.

NEVER AGAIN will I purchase from Curry's
