Satellite TV for Oil Rigs

“Is my oil rig too far away to get satellite TV?”Offshore drilling professionals might be glad to know that you can enjoy DIRECTV packages on most oil platforms.

Many oil rigs can be 50 miles or more out to sea. While that is far from shore, it’s not too far to get reliable satellite TV signal. Satellite TV is beamed straight down into a satellite dish from satellites that orbit high above the earth. With the right marine antenna, satellite receiver, and other equipment, you can get satellite TV sent straight to nearly any oil platform. You also can receive broadcast TV and reliable cellular phone service. Solid Signal can bring all of this to your oil rig.

We know all about satellite TV on oil rigs. Our sister company Signal Connect is a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer. They have placed a variety of top-brand marine satellite dishes, equipment, and DIRECTV packages to many oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere. Our team at Solid Signal also gives you local broadcast TV channels and improved wireless communications to your oil platform.

We want you and your offshore drilling crew to enjoy everything DIRECTV has to offer, which includes:

  • Crystal-clear HDTV reception.
  • The widest variety of channels.
  • DVR options to record several programs at once.
  • DIRECTV sports packages that deliver professional professional baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and more.
  • A wide variety of international programming, which can come in handy if you have an international crew.

If you own or manage an off-shore drilling company and want to bring satellite TV to your oil rig, consider DIRECTV and Signal Connect. Even if you’re 50 or more miles out to sea, we can bring you the news, sports, and entertainment that makes DIRECTV packages so popular. Satellite TV also deliver up-to-the-minute weather forecasts, which is very important on an oil platform. Call Signal Connect at 877.726.4182 to bring DIRECTV to your oil rig.
