Best Buy Slashes Price of HBO Sets
Best Buy is making a big push to sell season- and series-spanning DVD sets of popular HBO shows, dropping its prices of the sets by as much as 50 percent.
According to Home Media Magazine, the retailer has cut the price of the "Sopranos" complete series box set to $174.99, after it had retailed for twice that amount previously; Best Buy has also dropped the prices of the complete series of "Sex and the City," "Six Feet Under," "The Wire" and "Deadwood" to below $100. Individual seasons of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Flight of the Conchords" are now under the $20 barrier, while the sets of mini-series "Band of Brothers," "John Adams" and "Generation Kill" have also been cut.
The changes apply to both in-store and online.
