Arlington, Virginia – Today, American Trucking Associations announced it is renewing EpicVue, an in-cab satellite TV provider, as an ATA Corporate Partner for the third year.
“Demonstrating the good quality of life available to truck drivers both on and off the road is an important part of ATA’s message as we look to attract the next generation of drivers and keep the high-performing drivers in the industry,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Products like the ones offered by EpicVue are a nice perk for drivers on the road, and allow our members to invest in every aspect of the driving experience.”
EpicVue brings their years of expertise in the satellite and television industries into the world of trucking, hoping to improve driver experience in the process.
“There is an industry wide need to improve driver quality of life while also helping fleets reduce recruiting and retention costs,” said Lance Platt, CEO at EpicVue. “Our partnership with ATA helps us make motor carriers aware of the value of our driver entertainment technology, and lets us work with stakeholders across the trucking industry to achieve the common goal of maintaining and improving driver satisfaction.”
According to the company, EpicVue’s in-cab satellite TV offers more than 100 channels of DirecTV programming, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and the NFL Sunday ticket. These options are offered to drivers at a monthly fee with little upfront cost and can be accessed from within the driver’s sleeper at any time. EpicVue hopes that this addition will continue to demonstrate their dedication to driver living standards on the road industry-wide.
