DIRECTV for Marine the Right Way

If you want DIRECTV in your luxury craft or service vessel, there’s the right way and wrong way to do it. Turning to the pros at Signal Connect is the best way to get DIRECTV for marine.

When boat owners want DIRECTV in their vessels, many of them call DIRECTV. Seems like a no-brainer, but DIRECTV doesn’t do marine installations. When you call them, you might be put on hold, be transferred to other departments, then be put on hold again. You also could be transferred to a specific marine satellite antenna maker, which limits your options. If you’re lucky, you’ll get transferred to our sister company, Signal Connect, a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer. Our marine satellite TV experts can get DIRECTV to your luxury craft or service vessel without the dangers of you trying to install it yourself. So why not save yourself the hassle by calling us directly?

Don’t Do It Yourself!
Some boat owners believe they can install DIRECTV themselves. Since they have the service at home, they believe that they can just buy another satellite dish and receiver then install these units on their craft. While these seems like a good idea, it really isn’t. There are so many things that can go wrong when boat owners try to take the do-it-yourself approach to marine satellite dish installation. Here is a short list of the disasters that await those who try this:

  • You get the wrong dish. A non-marine dish won’t be able to pick up signal due to the constant rocking from the waves. Marine-grade satellite antennas feature built-in gyro-stabilizers that account for the effects of the sea.<br /><br />
  • You install your system incorrectly. Even if you buy a marine-grade dish, it doesn’t guarantee you’ll install it properly. Pro tip: There’s more to it than just setting up the dish and running a few cables.<br /><br />
  • You ruin your boat. The worst thing a vessel owner can do is start drilling holes in his/her boat to mount a satellite dish. You can cause serious damage to your vessel or worse, you could sink it!
