HBO Offers DVD Sampler1 Oct, 2007 By: Erik Gruenwedel
With the new fall television premiere season in full swing, select retailers are offering a free DVD featuring episodes from HBO series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Extras" and "Flight of the Conchords."
The sampler DVD, promoted in Circuit City's and Best Buy's Sunday paper circular, is free with the purchase of any HBO TV DVD, including seasons of “The Wire,” “The Sopranos,” “Band of Brothers” and “Da Ali G Show.”
Richmond, Va.-based Circuit City also offers an exclusive free “Entourage” T-shirt with the purchase of the second volume of the third season of HBO's popular series on DVD.
The promotions come following a second quarter (ended Aug. 31) that saw Circuit City post losses exceeding $62 million due, in part, to double digit declines in same-store sales of DVDs and music CDs.
