Although consumers may be well aware of what DIRECTV programming has to offer, businesses can overlook a service like pay-TV for a variety of uses onsite. In an effort to serve the information and entertainment needs of the small office market, Verizon has started offering DIRECTV's all-digital satellite television to its small-business customers.
While communities across the country wait for Verizon to expand its fiber network infrastructure, the company has turned to DIRECTV to satisfy the small-business need for a video product. The can-you-hear-me-now company says DIRECTV's service is ideal for customer waiting rooms by enlivening the atmosphere, increase entertainment options and reduce perceived waiting times improving satisfaction.
For customers in the restaurant industry, Verizon will offer the DIRECTV Commercial Choice PLUS package, including five ESPN channels, regional sports networks, local channels and more, starting at $148.99 per month for locations with up to 50 persons in the viewing audience.
Small-business customers like real estate agencies or doctor's offices can sign up for a separate package with 80-plus channels including sports, news and entertainment programming for $67.99 per month. (Local channels can be added for an extra fee.) All packages come with free standard commercial installation and a free standard DIRECTV system with up to three free standard receivers, the company said.
