Generally, the documents and websites do a better job explaining this...

Here goes...

Translation of the information at the website...


HP+ and the Extended Instant Ink subscription trial


HP+ is related to Instant Ink in the sense that signing up for HP+ provides for an Extended Trial period of the Instant Ink subscription plan,



HP+ - What is it? 


There are limitations, benefits, responsibilities when you choose HP+ service.


For example, at this writing, HP+:

  • HP+ includes an extended (longer) Warranty on your printer
  • Requires that you always use HP genuine ink cartridges in the printer - Again, this is not "Instant Ink" - the requirement is that you use HP branded ink
  • The printer must be connected to the Internet to allow monitoring by the HP+ Service
  • HP+ service includes Concierge Service - with extra setup help and assistance
