EpicVue is a provider of premium in-cab satellite TV packaged for the trucking industry and available for fleets with 20 or more vehicles. The service provides over-the road and regional fleets a special benefit to offer their drivers, and may help promote driver retention and recruitment.
“We’re making the Kenworth T680 – ‘The Driver’s Truck’ – even better by providing the options that drivers really want, while also helping fleets offer amenities to attract and retain top drivers. EpicVue is an example of a Kenworth option that enhances the daily experience of drivers by bringing all the comfort of home to them in their Kenworth T680 76-inch sleeper,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
EpicVue’s package offers 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 qualifying fleets for a monthly subscription fee under either a three-year and or five-year contract.
Kenworth customers ordering the new EpicVue option must specify Kenworth’s wall-mounted TV installation package for the T680 76-inch sleeper. Separately, EpicVue’s equipment package includes a satellite dome, DIRECTV receiver, 24-inch flat screen television, mounting and cabling equipment, and local area antenna.
