This message is for anyone that can explain the lack of stock anywhere for new 4642HD boxes. I work for a local retailer and we have had a back order on units since April of this year. I know Best Buy, Rogers stocks, etc all don't have new units. Only have refurb units for rent to own.
No one seems to know why this is happening. Is this possible a new box is coming out?
I don't think they will be releasing another one for a while. Why not just grab the 4K box which costs the same? It gives u the new remote, new software and everything. Most likely they aren't making new ones due to how many they have refurbished units they have so the company doesn't want to invest or make new ones which i understand seeing as that box has been out for little over 3 or so years if i am not mistaken.
@Meowmix this is a stock issue, I don't need one for myself. I am more so asking fellow members here as "I work for a local retailer" that hasn't been able to get stock from supplier since April of this year, Best Buy, Rogers stores, etc all show no stock.
Just odd that this is still an issue now in June. I'd ask our Rogers rep but the last person to show there face as the rep no longer works for Rogers. As for 4K units, they cannot be bought only rented and only Rogers does renting of units.
As for the 4K box, we don't want to open that can of worms on issues and lack of channels lol.
Best Buy does not carry Rogers TV products. They got pulled out a couple months ago. Our store stopped selling cable boxes from Rogers in August of last year. Thus why they don't show stock.
As for Rogers. Again it all depends. Most likely due to having so many refurbished units as i said, could be the reason behind it. Again no one knows but I don't think they are making new ones. Most likely only refurbished models.
