I'm just curious. How much do bars and restaurants pay for DirecTV?

For example, say a sports bar wants to have all the Sunday Ticket games running on multiple screens throughout their dining room.

Do they still charge per television? Perhaps per tuned channel, with each potentially mirrored to multiple screens? Is there a factor for the rated guest capacity of the room?

I would imagine the Sunday Ticket on a commercial account in a situation like this would be outrageously more expensive than a home account. Same for the main package.

It's based on fire code occupancy, if the televisions are in a public area, as well as per receiver. If the TVs are in a private area it's almost the same as a home account.

And yes, it is quite a bit more expensive for bars and restaurants to have Sunday Ticket, but it's a proven moneymaker.

It's based on fire capacity of the room for sports packages... and it's A LOT more expensive.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

If you're that curious go to their website. On top of their home page you'll see Businesses. Click on that and the business account page will come up with the information you're interested in.

DirecTV customer since 1995.

Yeah, I looked around in there a bit, but it seems like it's not going to tell you much without getting in touch with an actual sales rep.

As I have no real reason to be inquiring beyond curiosity, it's not something I would pursue.

Go to the above and click on what type of business then choose "more info".... then select TV Packages from the available tabs.

It will let you then select a package and show the price based on fire code occupancy.

No matter where the TV's are located in a Bar & Restaurant, it has to be B&R pricing...even if the TV's will be just in the back.

There are monthly receiver fees for Bar & Restaurant customers, but it isn't for every package and it starts with the 3rd receiver.

Another huge advantage D* has for B&R customers is the free MVP Marketing Program that helps those customers market & promote their establishments.

Did commercial accounts get the HD GUI? Because I was in BWW recently and noticed when they opened the EPG it was the old blue SD GUI...

You're correct; I can easily see where my post was misunderstood. Thank you for correcting it. What I meant to say was, if you are in a business where the TVs are in a public area, it is based on fire code occupancy. If your business does not have such a public area (for example in an office setting) the price is quite similar to residential pricing.

I hope that clears things up.

100% positive (had the HD tags beside programming in the EPG also), they actually use a matrix switch as well. Could it be they had old HD receivers maybe H20 model which I thought might not have been updated to the HD GUI but not sure?

True, the H20 did not get the GUI. I've seen places with receivers racked, so figured those would be the 21-pro but obviously not everyone does it that way.
