This kiosk describes and sells telephone services to GTE customers full-motion video. An operator appearing in the video greets the consumer and walks him through the transaction. The program asks for the consumer's telephone number and compares it to a database to determine if he is a GTE customer. If he is, he can purchase GTE services at the kiosk. A receipt indicates that any charges for the service and installation will appear on the next telephone bill.
