KVH Industries, Inc., is bringing the benefits of “Pay-As-You-Go” satellite TV service from DISH Network to customers in the marine market for the first time. This program gives seasonal boaters with TracVision satellite TV antenna systems the flexibility to pay for DISH Network service only when their houseboat is in the water. There is no charge for starting or stopping monthly service.
This new program broadens the appeal of satellite TV on a houseboat. With a KVH TracVision satellite TV antenna system onboard, boaters can enjoy cruising to a favorite anchorage without worrying about being out of range of their favorite programming or local TV channels. They can also access high-definition TV service just like they get at home. Marine customers of the Pay-As-You-Go program can get more than 200 high-definition channels of DISH Network programming anywhere in the U.S., with no contract required; all packages are on a 30-day, month-to-month basis. The flexibility of the Pay-As-You-Go program is designed to suit the needs of many types of boat owners—from those who only occasionally voyage offshore to those who have never enjoyed the benefits of satellite TV onboard.
