DIRECTV for Fitness Centers

Let’s say you have a fitness center or a gym. You might be a franchisee or an owner. Depending on where in the country you are, you might be re-opening after a long closure, or just trying to get people interested in losing “the quarantine fifteen.” Point is, you’re going to need to step up the game to get people back in the door.

Have you considered DIRECTV?

I know, I know. Everyone thinks the age of satellite TV is over. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, there are streaming alternatives now but when it comes to TV for business, streaming usually isn’t an option. Generally you don’t have enough bandwidth, and most of the apps aren’t legal to use in business anyway. That means not only is DIRECTV the best value, it can be the only value. Traditional TV still rules in commercial applications, and when it comes to fitness centers, it’s going to beat cable every time.

Why DIRECTV beats cable

A lot of modern exercise equipment has TVs built-in. It’s a lot better than trying to service the entire gym floor with just a few TVs. This capability has been around for a few years. It’s designed to work with cable systems so you just connect the cable and tune whatever channel you want. There’s just one problem:

So-called “cable-ready” devices… aren’t.

For decades, televisions have come with “cable-ready” tuners. The goal back in the 1980s was to stop cable companies from profiting on cable box rentals. Several years ago, the rules changed and pretty much all cable TV systems are now encrypyted. Using a cable-ready TV won’t get you anything unless you have a box.

The real irony is that the cable companies charge even more for these boxes when businesses are involved. You can end up paying hundreds of dollars in box rental fees just to distribute cable television to so-called cable-ready TVs.
