Workboat Companies, Get DIRECTV the Right Way!

This message is for anyone who works with tugboats, towboats, tankers, trawlers, or other fishing boats. It also goes for people who work on barges and offshore oil rigs. Our Signal Connect division is the best way to get DIRECTV for your fleet or drilling platform. Why are we suggesting you outfit your fleet with DIRECTV? Because of this one, simple fact about the marine industry…

…Workboat Crews Work Hard

You might agree that workboat crews have long hours. From deckhands to captains, it’s not uncommon to work an 18-hour shift, and be on the water for up to three months. And that’s not even counting the time you’re on-call. Wouldn’t you agree that a crew that works hard deserves to enjoy themselves on break? They can do that by enjoying their favorite news, sports, and entertainment on board. DIRECTV is essential for that.

DIRECTV for boats is nothing new. In fact, some maritime professionals know all about the joys of onboard DIRECTV. They bring their home receivers onboard with them at the beginning of every shift. We have an urgent message for workboat crews who do this…

…Stop it Right Now!

If some members of your team bring their home receivers on the boat, they’re asking for trouble. DIRECTV is cracking down on people who use residential receivers in commercial settings. They’re very serious about this, and they have satellites and computers to track this stuff. In others words, people who do this will get caught. You’ll have to pay a very expensive fine when that happens. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Cell Phone Boosters for Workboats

Most workboat crews use cell phones, tablets, and other wireless devices. Unfortunately, your boats’ interior repel cell phone signals. This is why your team might experience so many dropped calls and texts. The best way to fix that is to install an onboard cell booster. As long as you have half a bar, these devices give you:

  • Improved voice and data
  • Less dropped calls/texts
  • Faster uploads and downloads
  • Up to two more hours talk time in weak signal areas

Your crews will love finally being able to make and receive calls and texts on board!
