Comcast Pitches Wii to Sign New Customers

In an unusual yet creative move by a cable company to lure customers, America’s #1 cable provider Comcast will provide a Wii system to those that sign up for a two year contract to their Triple Play package. The promotion runs until August 17, 2008. You can order by dialing their 1-800-COMCAST number. Generally speaking, Triple Play costs about $130 a month, depending on the area that you live in.

Comcast Preferred Plus and Premier Triple Play packages include: Comcast Digital Cable with On Demand and premium channels; Comcast Digital Voice, offering unlimited local and domestic long-distance calling, and; Comcast High-Speed Internet. The partnership between Comcast and Nintendo will give new qualifying Triple Play customers a free Wii system and it will also allow them to hook up their Wii to Comcast High-Speed Internet for online matches of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii.

“Comcast’s high-speed Internet connects Wii owners with their friends all over the world,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales and Marketing. “In addition to playing video games, people can surf the Internet, share family photos, and check the news or weather. The Wii is home to a multitude of fun Internet based entertainment and informational options.”
