Boosted by strong sales in Philadelphia, Comcast Corp. announced that it is expanding its deal with Best Buy Co. Inc. to hawk high-definition-TV service in four new cities.


The MSO will expand the program to Baltimore; Knoxville and Nashville, Tenn.; and Washington, D.C.


In all, 31 stores will sell digital-ready HDTV sets packaged with Comcast Digital Cable. Customers who buy into that deal will get a rebate on the $79.99 service-activation kit, which includes free service installation, two months of free Home Box Office and Showtime and a book of pay-per-view coupons.


The promotional offer is open to all new customers and those upgrading from Comcast analog cable.


"We’re pleased to expand this retail relationship with Best Buy. A retail environment enables interactive demonstration of the combined power of HDTV and Digital Cable," Comcast vice president of retail sales Chris Caffrey said in a release.


"Customers are more likely to purchase advanced equipment and service if they can see how the service can enrich their home-entertainment experience," Caffrey added.


Best Buy shoppers in Philadelphia can also sign up for Comcast Digital Cable service for $29.99, which buys them free service installation, one month of free HBO and Showtime and PPV coupons.

Great... Comcast can't even get HD going in Best Buy's home town. (Minnesota) and it's a top 15 market.

I'm going to have to check this out. Last I heard, Baltimore City was not going to get HD for years. It is available in Baltimore County, where all the Best Buy stores are located (none in the city).
