RadioShack to Sell Comcast Services

DALLAS RadioShack will sell Comcast high-speed Internet and digital cable services at more than 1,800 stores under an agreement reported by the companies today. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

While RadioShack acts as a retailer of its own and other companies’ consumer electronics, the Fort Worth, Texas-based chain is increasingly a marketer of services for other suppliers, such as Sprint Wireless. RadioShack also provides marketing services at kiosks and other locations where its own name does not appear.

RadioShack sales staff will be able to check service availability for customers, choose between a self-install kit or a professional installation, and order service, the companies said.

“There is a neighborhood RadioShack within an estimated five minutes of where 94 percent of all Americans either live or work,” said Bob Faught, senior vice president of retail sales for Comcast Online.
