Marine Satellite TV and Spring Cleaning

Spring is coming and you’re getting ready to launch your boat for another season. This is the perfect time to get satellite TV in your yacht or service vessel.

This time of the year means getting your boat ready to launch. This means checking the vessel’s electrical and mechanical systems as well as a safety check for life jackets and first aid kits. This is also a great time to make sure all your registrations are up to date. Once the hard work is out of the way, you tend to do the fun stuff, such as making sure your fridge is stocked with beverages for those fun-filled nights and weekends on the sea. If having a good time on your boat is important to you, why not use this time to get a satellite dish installed?

Why Marine Satellite TV?
Satellite TV is practically made for the yachting life. You get hundreds of channels, your pick of professional sports packages, international programming, and so much more. During the day, you might be cruising the waves offshore; but at night, when you’re docked, satellite TV lets you curl up with your favorite shows. It’s the perfect way to end a long day of surf and sun.

The Difficulty of DIY

While getting satellite TV on your boat might sound as easy as installing a dish, there’s more to it than that. Much more, actually. This is why we recommend you don’t try to install the dish yourself. First of all, you might get the wrong dish entirely. (Boats require marine-grade satellite dishes that have built-in gyro-stabilizers that compensate for the rolling effects of the ocean.) You also run the risk of damaging your boat if you don’t properly install the dish. You’ve spent a lot of time and money on your vessel; don’t ruin it by eagerly drilling holes into its hull.
