Qualcomm Launches FLO TV Rebate Program

 Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM) unveiled details of its FLO TV device rebate program as it prepares to wind down the ill-fated mobile broadcast initiative in early 2011. Qualcomm will terminate FLO TV services on March 27. The firm said consumers who've purchased a FLO TV Personal Television, Audiovox Portable DVD Player with FLO TV or FLO TV Auto Entertainment unit and activated a corresponding service account may qualify for a rebate. To collect, users must submit an online rebate form for each device, not the device itself -- according to Qualcomm, rebate totals are determined by the retail price of the device on the date of activation, and in cases where the device was never activated, proof of purchase is required. Upon contacting FLO TV Customer Care, service will be disconnected within 72 hours; service will be pro-rated, with any charges from unused service refunded to the consumer's credit card account. Rebates will be issued via check and arrive between four and six weeks after the claim is validated.
