A/V INSTALLERS: Looking to get into satellite TV installs?

Satellite TV continues to be one of the more common home theater upgrades out there, but home theater installers often think they have to call DIRECTV for the installation. It’s just not true – if you have the tools and the knowhow, you can install a satellite TV system yourself quickly and easily.

Do it right, or don’t do it

The key is having access to the right parts. Satellite TV is more than just the dish and the receivers… it’s the right cable, the right connectors, the right splitters, and everything in between. Having access to the right parts is the difference between success and failure.

You need someone on your side who can get you the right tools and the right parts, the exact same stock that DIRECTV’s own installers use. You need someone who can take care of the all-important activation step, too — if the equipment doesn’t work, there’s no reason to have it at all!

Get the tools the professionals use

Luckily for you, the same resources available to full-time DIRECTV installers are also available to you. I mean all the resources from dishes to remotes to bolts. You’ll find them the same place you can find quality installation tools… at Solid Signal. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 50-cent bolt or a $5,000 marine satellite system, we have it all.

You can get the dishes, the receivers, and the right cables and connectors, and when the job is ready, you can call us at 888-233-7563 and just like the big guys, you’ll reach someone on the other end of the line who can get the account set up, activate all the programming, and even give you troubleshooting tips to pass on to your customer. It’s like you’re instantly transformed into one of DIRECTV’s own installers, except you’re free to do things your way. You can offer your customers options for mounting and wiring that normal DIRECTV techs aren’t allowed to. That gives you the advantage.

Get the advantage

It isn’t always easy to have the advantage when you’re competing with big corporate America, which is why it’s great to have a company like Solid Signal on your side. Since 2003, we’ve specialized in helping high-end DIYers and installers just like you to get the most out of DIRECTV’s and DISH’s products. We want to help you offer every single product and service that they offer, with just as much expertise and twice the flexibility. It’s that simple.

Think about it for a minute. Take a look at all the products and services that we can offer you as an installer. We can help you install it all.
