Comcast Corp. has taken its retail HD play outside of Philadelphia, extending
an agreement with electronics retailer Tweeter Home Entertainment Group Inc. to
promote the service at retail outlets in 10 states.
Until now, the two had a marketing agreement to offer Comcast HDTV services
in 19 Philadelphia-area stores. The extension adds 68 Tweeter, Sound Advice and
HiFi Buys stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland,
Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
The marketing campaign will pair up digital HDTV-ready sets with Comcast HDTV
service, offering free basic delivery of the HDTV sets or $50 off Tweeter’s
deluxe delivery option.
The offer is valid for new subscribers opting for HD service or existing
subscribers who upgrade from analog or digital cable.
