The American Trucking Associations (ATA) announced that EpicVue, provider of premium in-cab satellite TV packaged exclusively for the trucking industry, is participating in the ATA Corporate Partner program.
“Truck drivers and the trucking industry make it possible for families across America to have access to the comforts and conveniences that we all appreciate,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “One of the ways to attract new drivers, and make life better for the men and women currently in the industry, is to demonstrate that life in the cab of a truck can come with many of the comforts we enjoy at home.
“We’re glad that companies like EpicVue provide those important services to professional truck drivers, and we appreciate EpicVue’s ongoing commitment to ATA and the trucking industry.”
The EpicVue package includes more than 100 channels of DIRECTV programming, including premium channels such as HBO/Cinemax, SHOWTIME and the NFL Sunday Ticket. The in-cab satellite TV systems are offered to fleets with 20 or more vehicles for a monthly subscription fee.
“The need to address the driver quality of life cannot be understated, and we are honored to be an ATA Corporate Partner and thrilled to have our product be an ATA Featured Product again this year,” said Lance Platt, CEO for EpicVue.
“While the power of television is something most of us take for granted, it is proving to be a powerful influence in not only improving the quality of life for today’s drivers, but it is also having a significant influence in attracting a new generation of drivers to the industry. Seeing the reaction from drivers who get to experience this is very rewarding, and it is encouraging to be a part of providing at least one piece to the driver lifestyle puzzle.”
