SpaceX is continuing to make it easier for customers to purchase Starlink hardware, adding their satellite internet system to Best Buy stores in the US. The addition of Starlink to Best Buy comes just a few weeks after the hardware appeared at Home Depot.
According to the Best Buy website, SpaceX is offering both the standard Starlink kit and the High Performance kit. Both kits are available for the same price as on the official Starlink website at $599 and $2,5000 respectively. (via PCMag) Much like with the Home Depot offering, the Starlink kits can be shipped to your address, or you can opt to pick up your hardware at a physical Best Buy location. This could mean the hardware will also be available on store shelves for walk-in customers, but we have yet to see any reports of this.
While the hardware is now available for purchase online, it appears customers in those states where the service is readily available are able to place orders, as the fine print shows the hardware kits can only be shipped to 24 select states. Customers are also advised to check the Starlink website to make sure they can sign up for the service before purchasing.
SpaceX is the only one of Elon Musk’s companies that is expanding its sales presence to retail stores. Tesla is also doing the same, with the Wall Connector also available at Best Buy in the US. Unfortunately none of the offerings by either SpaceX or Tesla are available on Best Buy or Home Depot websites in Canada.
