EpicVue announced that owner-operators can now subscribe independently and use its driver entertainment systems to enjoy the comforts of home on the road.
“With fleet use of our in-cab satellite TV for drivers growing, we had steadily rising interest from independent operators,” said Lance Platt, CEO of EpicVue. “That led to making a new monthly, no contract subscription package available exclusively to owner-operators. Now, during off-duty rest periods, they can kick back and watch their favorite shows, the big game or catch up on the latest news. With EpicVue, they can also record a show or movie while driving, and they never need to rely on truckstop Wi-Fi to enjoy a program.”
EpicVue in-cab satellite TV for owner-operators is offered in three monthly subscription packages. After upfront hardware and installation costs, there is no contract, and no activation or cancellation fees. Drivers simply select a channel lineup-- with more than 100 channels of DIRECTV programming, including SHOWTIME and the NFL Sunday Ticket available— stationary or InMotion dish tracking, and whether they want a DVR.
Drivers also have the option of installing EpicVue hardware themselves using updated installation manuals from EpicVue, or using a professional installation option being offered at ten TA Petro truckstop locations for a flat rate of $180.
Discount programs for the EpicVue service are being offered exclusively through a growing number of associations, including the American Association of Owner Operators, the Truckers Service Association and the National Association of Independent Truckers. EpicVue is also working with trucking companies that use the services of dedicated owner-operators to make in-cab satellite TV available at discounted rates.
