Fire Stations Need DIRECTV!

Fire chiefs, you make life-and-death decisions every day. Here’s an easy decision for you to make: getting DIRECTV at the fire station.

DIRECTV for fire departments makes perfect sense. Sure, your fire company is very busy most of the time. But when they’re not on a call or in training, they can enjoy DIRECTV programming. Do you know satellite service offers better reception and more channel choices than cable? And, when you work with our Signal Connect division, you can save big. To be honest, Signal Connect makes getting DIRECTV so easy that there’s no reason NOT to have it at the fire department.

Improve TV Reception at the Fire Station

Satellite TV reception is far superior to cable. That’s not fluff, it’s fact. The difference between the two is a matter of compression. Let me explain. Compressing signals affects the overall quality of the signals being sent, which in turn affects the resolution, aka the picture you see on the TV screen. Cable TV has about 900MHz of bandwidth, which is relatively small. Squeezing all that signal into that bandwidth degrades the overall quality of the picture.

Satellite TV uses three different frequency ranges, with each one being about 2.3GHz of bandwidth. Your satellite system chooses which of the six different combinations of frequency and polarity it needs. This makes it possible to have a LOT more content and to not compress it so heavily. For all you do, wanting the best picture possible isn’t too much to ask. In layman’s terms, DIRECTV has superior resolution to cable TV, hands down.

DIRECTV Offers More Channel Choices

DIRECTV offers various programming packages, each with a wide variety of news and entertainment channels. There’s something for everyone. Yes, we know that sounds like a marketing cliché, but it’s true. If you need help deciding which package is best for the fire station, a Signal Connect rep can help you. We’re a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer, so our team knows this stuff inside and out, and they’re always happy to help.

Does you have some football fans on your crew? They’ll love DIRECTV’s NFL SUNDAY TICKET, which is FREE for new subscribers! (Significant restrictions apply. Ask your rep for details.) You’ll get to see nearly every home and away game of every team in the league. You’ll also get the Game Mix, Red Zone, and Fantasy Tracker channels. And if you have some pro baseball, basketball, and/or hockey fans on the team, there are packages for those sports, too. DIRECTV even offers some regional sports options. It’s a sports fan’s dream come true!

Get a FREE TV from Signal Connect!

We talked about savings earlier and you can’t save more than getting something for free. In this case, Signal Connect wants fire companies to have a free 32” LCD high-definition television with their DIRECTV purchase. This TV is valued at $199, but we’re happy to give it to you so your crew can watch TV on their breaks. It’s our way of saying thank you for everything you do – and the lives you save – in your community! Be sure to ask your Signal Connect rep how you can qualify.
