Commercial Vs. Residential DIRECTV Accounts

When getting DIRECTV for boats, the difference between a commercial and residential DIRECTV account is EXTREMELY important. Yes, commercial accounts are for businesses while home satellite TV installations are for residential viewing. This becomes complicated with marine installations. For example, which account do you get if you own your boat through an LLC and take it out on paid charters and personal use? Answer: The boat is considered a business, so it must be activated as a commercial DIRECTV account.

Here’s another situation that gets some boat owners in trouble: boating companies that allow workers to connect home DIRECTV receivers to the vessel’s satellite dome. This defrauds AT&T and its content providers of the money they earn from commercial accounts. Similar problems occur when people bring a home satellite receiver on a commercial boat they own while their family keeps watching DIRECTV at home. These actions are considered “fraud and misclassification,” and many boat owners have been fined when they’ve made these mistakes.

The marine satellite TV experts at Signal Connect understand the differences between commercial and residential DIRECTV. What’s more, they’ll make sure boat owners get the right accounts from the start. This keeps everyone from committing a crime and being fined… or worse. When it comes to providing DIRECTV for boats, this is Signal Connect’s biggest value. It’s why we continued to bring DIRECTV to:
