San Diego -- General Instrument Corp. last week launched a
nationwide free-installation program to encourage C-band television subscribers to upgrade
to digital equipment.

The company is working with more than 650 satellite dealers
to offer discounts of up to $200 on professional installations.

The large-dish C-band market has been steadily losing
subscribers in recent months.
