Circuit City has joined the list of digital radio retailers with stores selling HD-R product in 10 markets; RadioShack is expanding its rollout to some 2,500 stores in new markets.
JVC has dropped the price of its in-dash, automotive receiver price to $199; up to $50 in rebates are now available for select receiver models. With the rebate, the retail price of the JVC unit drops to $149.
Other alliance partners to be promoted in the campaign include Amazon; Cambridge SoundWorks, which recently launched two new HD radio models; Crutchfield; Tweeter; and JVC.
Retailers and manufacturers will collaborate with the alliance on additional marketing efforts that include print advertising, catalog listings and online and in-store campaigns.
