More details have emerged regarding Time Warner Cable’s plans to subsidize customer Slingbox purchases. The information confirms and expands upon what was previously reported. The subsidy will take the form of a rebate on the Slingbox PRO-HD, up to the $299.99 MSRP, and will be available to customers who subscribe to the high-end $99.99 a month Wideband Internet Service. This DOCSIS 3.0 service provides up to 50Mbps downstream and 5Mbps upstream.
One new piece of information, the offer will initially roll out to customers in the New York City area only. TWC will decide if and when to expand the offer to other service areas based on the response they get from NYC customers.
