Is there anywhere in the country too remote for DIRECTV?

Here’s a question we get asked a lot at Solid Signal. It starts with, “I live in the (mountains, desert, woods, etc) and that’s pretty far away from civilization. Can I get DIRECTV Satellite?”

The answer is almost always yes. DIRECTV Satellite TV was designed for this very sort of thing. Let’s look at a few cases where DIRECTV reaches people and other services don’t.

The mountains of the west

When people think of the western US, they’re likely to think of coastal metropolises like San Francisco or Seattle. But, there’s a large chunk of this country that’s very sparsely inhabited. Whole states like Montana and Wyoming are filled with folks who like a lot of land between them and their neighbors. Personally, I salute them.

Living out on a ranch, or in a hamlet in the mountains, is about as American as it comes. It means you’re self-reliant and tough. And I think that’s great. But even the most self-reliant and tough among us need to relax.

DIRECTV Satellite service works throughout the western US, anywhere that you have a clear view of the southern sky. If you’re in a densely wooded area, that may mean putting the dish up fairly high, but it’s not impossible for sure.


Folks in the islands off the coasts, as well as Hawaii, are living the life. Who wouldn’t like to wake up to the sea all around you? Sounds like a paradise to me. You may live in a touristy area, or just live somewhere remote. There are hundreds of islands off our shores, as well as in the Aleutian and Hawaiian archipelagos, that are home to some of the most friendly and happiest people on Earth.

But, living on an island often means bringing in things from the mainland. It also means that you just might not have all the services you want. But, satellite TV is easy to get from practically any island. If you can see the sky, you can have satellite TV. Of course, you also need electricity, but that’s another matter.

The big city

A lot of folks think that because they live in high rise apartments, they can’t get satellite TV. It’s true that depending on which direction the apartment itself is pointing, it can be difficult. But, the solution for high-rise buildings is there. Many high-rise owners choose to put DIRECTV systems on the roof and wire them so that every apartment dweller can enjoy them.

Most building owners don’t know that there are subsidies for this sort of thing. It could cost next-to-nothing to offer satellite TV to everyone in the building! Everyone wins!
