Get an RV DIRECTV Upgrade This Fall

After reading that headline, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Why should I get a DIRECTV upgrade in my recreational vehicle when I’m just going to store it in the winter? I’d be paying for something I wouldn’t even be able to watch until the spring!” First of all, no you won’t, but we’ll get to that in a bit. First, let’s talk about why you need a DIRECTV upgrade in your RV, motorhome, or camper… whether you’re storing it or using it all year. So, what’s driving all of this?

Your DIRECTV Receiver is Getting Old!

Did you have DIRECTV installed in your RV between 2004-2007? If so, there’s something you need to know. You’re rocking standard definition or SD technology. Yes, it was the hottest thing in satellite TV reception back in the day but now, it’s yesterday’s news. DIRECTV is now broadcasting in high-definition reception, which some programming even being shown in 4K. (That’s the highest reception level on the market.) By today’s standards, your standard definition is a shadow of the reception you could be having with HD.

There’s something else you need to know about DIRECTV SD and we’re going to tell it to you straight. It’s probably going away soon. DIRECTV broadcasts this content on satellite 119, which they plan to park soon. When that happens, you can expect to lose all of your local standard definition channels and a good portion of your national standard definition channels. If you want to talk about paying for something that you’re not getting, this would be the “definition” of that. But it doesn’t have to be this way…

…You Could Upgrade to DIRECTV HD

The Signal Connect division of Solid Signal specializes in creating DIRECTV solutions for RV owners. When you work with us, we literally do everything. Your account rep will match you with the right programming package and equipment. Then he or she will connect you with a qualified installer in your area. Once that’s all done, your Signal Connect rep will quickly activate your DIRECTV account so you can start watching TV right away.

Your relationship with your Signal Connect rep doesn’t end once you have DIRECTV in your RV. There might come a day when you need a change made to your account or you have questions about your DIRECTV service. When that happens, all you have to do is call your rep. They’ll answer your questions or take care of anything you need. Best of all, this concierge service is free to RV owners who get DIRECTV through Signal Connect. How many other dealers offer that level of customer service? (Rhetorical question.)

Which Brings Us to Monthly Fees

You were concerned about paying for DIRECTV while your RV is in storage. What if I told you that you can have the latest DIRECTV receiver and programming now but don’t have pay monthly rates until your RV is back on the road? You can start watching DIRECTV whenever you want to when you work with Signal Connect. Are you wondering how that works?

Remember what we said above about activating your DIRECTV account? Well, your Signal Connect rep doesn’t have to do that until the spring. It’s very easy to do when you already have your receiver upgrade installed. Just call Signal Connect after you get your RV out of storage and they’ll activate your account then. In most cases, our team can take care of this in about 10 minutes or less. I don’t think another DIRECTV dealer make it any easier than we do. Seriously.

“What About People You Use Their RVs All Year?”

Great question, and Signal connect has the answer. You can keep enjoying DIRECTV SD throughout the year. Like we said, that satellite is going to get parked and many of your favorite channels are expected to go dark. What are you going to do if you’re camped out in the winter with no TV to watch? The definition of stir crazy as far as I’m concerned. Frankly, I can’t think of a better reason to upgrade to DIRECTV HD.
