ReplayTV Announces Service Discount
SANTA CLARA, CA., September 16, 2004 - ReplayTV®, the inventor and creator of personal television recorders, today announced a new discounted pricing structure for customers with multiple ReplayTV units. ReplayTV will now offer the ReplayTV Service Guide at a discounted rate of $6.95 per month for customers who purchase a second ReplayTV Digital Video Recorder (DVR). In addition, consumers with multiple active ReplayTV DVR units who currently subscribe via the monthly service will also be eligible for this new discounted price (on up to five additional units).
"ReplayTV offers the world's most powerful DVR at a great value, and now we are proud to offer our customers an even greater value," said ReplayTV President, Bernie Sepaniak. "Our discounted monthly subscription rate provides an added incentive to take advantage of our room-to-room video streaming and many other advanced networking features, in addition to providing a discount to our loyal customers."
Under this new discounted plan, service for the first ReplayTV DVR is $12.95 per month or $299 for lifetime activation while each additional ReplayTV service subscription will be eligible for the discounted $6.95 per month. The discounted subscription structure is also applicable for existing customers who already have multiple activated ReplayTV DVRs and are currently paying the monthly subscription fee on one or more of those units. Their monthly service fee will automatically be reduced to $6.95.
The discount is applicable to all models of ReplayTV DVRs. Multiple unit accounts will be verified if the payment information is the same for each unit. In the event that a household reduces their number to one active unit, billing rates will automatically return to the rates received prior to the multi-unit discount.
