DIRECTV Perfect for Getting Away

Want to hop in your RV or boat and just get away for a while? You can take your favorite TV shows with you on DIRECTV!

Not too long ago, Stuart Sweet made a case for DIRECTV at the dentist’s office. I’m not here to argue with him. The dentist’s office is one of the few businesses that still have an anticipated wait time. But what about DIRECTV for individuals who want to get away for a while? I’m talking about people who own boats or RVs. If you’re wondering the answer is yes, you can get DIRECTV in your boat or motorhome!

Before We Discuss DIRECTV…

…Let’s talk about getting away. I’m not talking about dropping out of society and becoming a hermit… though the idea is tempting. What I’m really talking about here is just a little social distancing. Whether you take a couple weeks off or get away on the weekends, the result is still the same. You’re getting away for a little while.

If you’re doing this alone, you’ll want something to occupy your time. If you’re bringing your loved ones with you, you’ll need something to occupy everyone’s time. Here are just a few things you could/should bring to help pass the time:

  • Your cellphone (Of course!)
  • Books and/or ebooks
  • Camera
  • Fishing gear
  • Set of small hand weights
  • Anything else you enjoy doing

So, as you can see, there are a lot of things you can do while you’re on your retreat. But at the end of the day, when you’re all settled in, there’s nothing better than watching your favorite shows and news. And for that, there’s nothing better than…

…DIRECTV for your RV

Yes, you can do that… just not while you’re driving, please! RV owners across the country are enjoying DIRECTV in their recreational vehicles. These folks know that no matter where they drive, there’s an excellent chance that they’ll get all their favorite channels when they get there. That’s because DIRECTV’s satellites blanket the country in signal from coast to coast. So, if you’re planning on going to the nearest RV park or far away, you’ll take your TV programming with you.

DIRECTV for Boats

The rules here are a little different than RVs, but the concept is the same. DIRECTV is installed on your vessel so you can watch your favorite shows on the boat. There are some limitations to this, though. If you’re just staying at the marina, you’ll be fine. You’ll even get reception while anchored just offshore. There’s a limit to how far you can travel from shore before you lost reception. Generally speaking, that’s about 50 miles.
