TV Entertainment for Over-the-Road Truckers

Are you a trucker who wants your favorite TV shows in your big rig? Our Signal Connect division has the solution!

Over-the-road trucking means spending a lot of time in a big rig. Those breaks might get boring if truckers don’t have something to keep them entertained. This can lead to bad habits, such as eating greasy truck stop food. This, coupled with long hours in your cab aren’t the best ways to enjoy your downtime. There are other ways for trucks to enjoy their breaks, and Solid Signal shares them here.

Low-Cost Entertainment for Truckers

Are you a trucker who spends a lot of time on the road? Here are some things you can do to pass the time and make your breaks more enjoyable:

  • Bring a book or audiobook. Reading is fundamental!
  • Do bodyweight exercises to help you stay in shape.
  • Play cards with other truckers at truck stops.

These things are great forms of entertainment, but what do you do when you want to watch TV? You have some options when you work with our Signal Connect division. Let’s take a look at the TV entertainment options for over-the-road truckers like yourself.

AT&T TV for Truckers

AT&T TV is an excellent option for truck drivers. This value-driven streaming service offers viewers a wide variety of national channels on your phone or other devices. (Plus, you get the box and remote to watch at home!) The viewing packages that start at $59.99/month, and you get virtually unlimited storage on the cloud. These and other benefits make it an excellent option for truckers who want to watch their favorite shows on breaks.

Cell Phone Boosters for Truckers

Whether you have AT&T TV or not, your rig could use a cell phone booster. You drive through low signal areas every day. This can cause you to lose important calls or texts from the base or your family. They’re the reason you do this job after all! That’s why you need one of these devices in your semi-truck.

So, what does a cellular signal booster do for you? It boosts your cell phone’s connectivity on the road. This improves your ability to send and receive calls and texts, and download and stream data. So, whether you’re calling, texting, or watching a TV on your break, a cell phone booster makes sure you can do it. That’s what makes it a great investment for your big rig!

DIRECTV for Truck Drivers

AT&T offers truckers another option for watching TV on the road, and that’s DIRECTV. Its satellites beam programming all across the U.S. With a mobile satellite dome atop your rig, you can enjoy everything DIRECTV in the western, midwestern, southern, or eastern U.S. Imagine getting all that news, sports, and entertainment programming wherever you park!

Speaking of Connectivity on the Road…

…How’s your wireless plan? If you don’t have a reliable wireless and data plan, you might not be able to. AT&T has a variety of affordable plans that offer the kind of coast-to-coast coverage every OTR trucker needs.
