Chrysler to take care of customers who lose TV feed
Chrysler Group LLC says it will take care of customers who lose their television feed when FLO TV winds down its operations next spring.
The automaker last year introduced mobile TV as a feature on all vehicles equipped with a DVD system.
Buyers could decide to subscribe to FLO TV or Sirius TV or both.
Chrysler, through its Mopar division, has sold about 850 dealer-installed FLO TV units
, said Chrysler spokesman Bryan Zvibleman.
Chrysler will continue to offer Sirius TV in its vehicles and is still developing a plan to take care of the customers with FLO TV as it learns more details of how the television service provider’s plans to stop offering its direct-to-consumer programming, Zvibleman said.
FLO TV parent Qualcomm, in a statement, said it is “examining strategic opportunities for FLO TV” and is suspending its direct-to-consumer sales of new devices during this process. The company said the network will be maintained for current subscribers to receive programming until spring 2011.
