Boat owners in many parts of the world are looking forward to getting their boats back in the water right about now, and here’s some news to add to the excitement: The TracVision TV-series from KVH makes it easier than ever to bring your favorite TV services to your yacht or boat. Now you don’t have to worry about missing your favorite shows or setting the DVR; you can enjoy your favorite programming while you are on the water. The TracVision TV-series includes TracVision TV1, TV3, TV5, TV6, and TV8 for a full range of systems offering sizes, features, and options for every size boat. Here are six reasons why you can’t live without the TracVision TV-series onboard your boat or yacht today:

1. Better Reception
It’s undeniable. We love watching the flawed characters in “The Walking Dead,” the silly antics in “Modern Family,” and the talented dreamers on the “The Voice,” But does it seem like your onboard TV reception is more like fuzzy static than HD? KVH’s TracVision TV-series systems feature exclusive RingFire technology that provides stronger signals and better reception so you don’t miss a beat of your favorite TV programming.


2. Never Miss Movie Night!

After a day on the water, the fun doesn’t have to stop there. Experience a theater-quality movie night with the sophisticated technology built into the TracVision TV-series. High performance tracking with advanced algorithms ensure crystal clear picture, even in heavy seas. So whether you’re docked for the night or taking a longer trip you’ll never miss a minute of the action. The TracVision TV6, for example, provides commercial-grade performance, rock-steady satellite reception, and an extended coverage area that is perfectly suited for short or long voyages.

3. Enjoy Your Favorite Programs

Finally an end to “I’m so booooored” from the kids! TracVision TV-series has an Integrated Single Wire Multiswitch (SWM-8) built into the belowdecks TV-Hub to support up to 8 DIRECTV receivers right out of the box, so the kids can watch whatever they want, while you watch what you want. Never again do you need to choose between the big game and watching Nickelodeon with the kids. All of your guests can enjoy their favorite shows all at the same time, when they are on the same satellite. Now the real question becomes, do you have enough televisions onboard?

4. Have Fun Without Ever Leaving the Dock!
Lots of boaters enjoy being on the water so much they use their boats as waterfront condos. Be the envy of everyone at the marina with the TracVision TV-series from KVH. Enjoy hours of entertainment with crystal clear movies, music, and television right at your fingertips without ever having to pull up anchor. Now you really can be on top of the world!


5. More Music Onboard
Whether you’re rocking out to your favorite 80s hair band, or kicking back with some classical Mozart, the TracVision TV-series lets you listen to tons of commercial free, CD-quality music channels to suit all your moods. Having guests over for a sunset cruise or simply want to enjoy music while you sail, turn on your favorite music TV channel and let the good times roll.

6. Another Way to Celebrate “World TV Day”
The United Nations has proclaimed November 21st as “World TV Day”, the day devoted to this favorite pastime. There’s no better way to celebrate than with the best TV entertainment onboard. KVH TracVision products have been awarded the National Marine Electronics Association’s (NMEA) highest honors for 18 years running. These are the people who really know marine electronics.  Now you can enjoy World TV Day without ever having to leave your boat.
