Will GoPro Hero 8 Black Mods count as Accessories?

Hi,

 

I've just pre-ordered the Hero 8 Black and was wondering if the three Mods will count as accessories.

 

The reason I'm asking is that I'm considering joining the GoPro Plus scheme where you can apparently get a 50% discount off "mounts and accessories".

 

I would definitely join if this were the case for the Mods!

Re: Will GoPro Hero 8 Black Mods count as Accessories?

@jorolat, Mods will be available for preorder on GoPro.com in December. As for the GoPro Plus discount, we currently do not have any new information available at this time. Please continue checking our website https://gopro.com/ for further updates.

Re: Will GoPro Hero 8 Black Mods count as Accessories?

They currently do show as discounted with GoPro Plus. Hopefully it stays that way.

Discounts and benefits are available directly after signing up. There is no wait period.

50% discounts are already listed for Plus subscribers for two of the December pre-order mods, though you'll have to wait to order. You'll only see the discounts if you're logged in as a Plus subscriber, not if you aren't logged in.

Media Mod (Main Frame with microphone and connector slots) and Display Mod (flip screen) both show as 50% off. Only the Light Mod retains the same price. I suspect it will stay this way. If GoPro was trying some bait and switch, they would just mark all three 50% off.

@jorolat, Mods will be available for preorder on GoPro.com in December. As for the GoPro Plus discount, we currently do not have any new information available at this time. Please continue checking our website https://gopro.com/ for further updates.

  gopro themselves do not know, hmmm   is that not what your plus plan is about to offer additional savings on  ALL accessoris. not good sales business if they are EXCEMPT from the plus until further demands.  Could be one good reason if purchasers are holding off.  Truth hurts I say.

There are already some exemptions:

 

...Does not include activity kits, chargers, the Smart Remote, the Pro 3.5mm Mic Adapter, the Karma Drone or Karma accessories, or non-GoPro manufactured accessories (such as SD cards)...

 

As GoPro have described the Hero 8 Black add-ons as "Mods" as opposed to "Accessories", I wouldn't be surprised if the mods are exempt from the GoPro Plus discount, too.

 

But fingers crossed that they aren't :)

That's excellent news, @danielr15 - as you say, let's hope it stays that way!

 

I'm waiting until I receive my Hero 8 Black and then I'll probably join GoPro Plus via the 30-day free trial offer.

 

Do you (or anyone else, for that matter) know if you have to belong to GoPro Plus for a minimum length of time before you're eligible for the accessory discount?
