Snowbird Boat Owners, Get DIRECTV

The snowbirds are preparing to sail their boats down to Florida’s many waterways and marinas. If you’re someone who brings your boat down the east coast to winter in the sunshine state, we wanted to talk to you. Who’s we? I’m talking about our Signal Connect division. These are the folks who specialize in delivering satellite TV solutions to boats of nearly every size. If you’re going to be spending time in one of Florida’s liveaboard marinas, make DIRECTV your choice for onboard entertainment. It really is your best option, and our team does the best job at delivering it to your boat.

Marine Satellite TV: Two Reasons

Do you already have DIRECTV on your vessel? It wouldn’t surprise us if you do. As we said above, this satellite TV service is a great option for boat owners. The only problem is that many of you are still using DIRECTV’s standard-definition (SD) technology. Some or all of that might go away when AT&T parks its satellite 119. We’re encouraging snowbirds like you to upgrade to high-definition (HD) technology. This will give you all your favorite shows in stunning reception.

If you don’t have any DIRECTV at all, the winter is the best time to get it. Think about it. While your vessel is docked, and one of our preferred installers can have the installation done in a matter of hours. One of our reps can activate your account in as little as 15 minutes. This means you and everyone else on your boat can enjoy your favorite shows that day!

The Marine Satellite TV Experts

I did start this blog out by saying that we do DIRECTV, right? I should also mention that Signal Connect is a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer. In other words, we’re the experts, especially when it comes to having this service on boats. Getting DIRECTV for your craft is a big decision, so it’s best to work with someone you can trust. That’s us. We’ve already brought this satellite TV service to many liveaboard boats along the Florida coastline.

As the experts in marine satellite TV, our knowledge of satellite equipment is also second to none. Whether you’re upgrading or getting a new installation, you need the right DIRECTV equipment on your boat. Our Solid Signal division carries the biggest and best selections of marine satellite domes, wiring, and receivers. Your Signal Connect rep will work with your installer to put together a package. They’ll also help you save as much as possible on this gear. Who doesn’t like to cut costs whenever they can?

How Our DIRECTV Installation Process Works

You and your boat are down in Florida while we’re up here in Michigan. How do we handle your installation? We lean on a number of qualified, professional marine electronics installers for that. Signal Connect has a network of these professionals up and down the Florida’s coastlines. Each one is hand-picked to do the job. When this person shows up at the dock for your installation, you can expect them to:

  1. Understand the challenges of installing DIRECTV on boats.
  2. Show up on time and ready to do the job.
  3. Install your DIRECTV quickly and effectively.
  4. Contact us once the installation is done so we can activate your account.

We understand that your boat is your home and the marina is your neighborhood. The people we send to install your DIRECTV understand this. You can expect them to display the highest degree of professionalism and courtesy when they work on your vessel. After the job is done, your Signal Connect rep will continue to handle your account needs as long as you keep it active.
