Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis use Packet8 VideoPhone

Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, two science fiction shows are featuring the Packet8 VideoPhone on the set. According to the news release, in addition to featuring the Packet8 VideoPhone during upcoming episodes, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis will be the center of a national consumer sweepstakes that gives fans an opportunity to win a trip to the Stargate sets along with Packet8 VideoPhones and Freedom Unlimited residential service plans.

This follows the Packet8 Videophone being used on other popular TV shows, including Alias, 24 – The Series, King of Queens, Law & Order SVU, Will & Grace, Medical Investigation, Eyes, and Navy NCIS. I believe they also recently sent out a release on military personnel using the Packet8 Videophone in the field, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

You have to hand it to Packet8 - they sure are doing a great job of product placement in popular television shows. Is this enough to counteract the Vonage marketing juggernaut? Does product placement in television shows result in customer sign-ups? It's too early to tell. I think the Packet8 Videophone product is a great product and wish 8x8, Inc. the best. As much as I love Vonage  (and am a paying customer), the more competition in the VoIP space, the better it is for the consumer.
