REV Home Sat brings amazing TV programming to Family Island Residents
The country’s #1 Cable Provider offers upgraded TV service to underserved Family Island Communities
REV, the only 100% Bahamian Owned Triple Play provider has launched a new and upgraded home TV service exclusively for consumers in the Family Islands. REV Home Sat TV services replaces the Free to Air services historically provided by REV to Family Island consumers from Inagua in the south to Abaco in the North.
Through this new service, customers will receive 12 FREE channels instead of the previous six off air channels and can also enjoy access to a number of premium channels including HBO, Starz and REV sport packages for a minimal monthly cost.
“We’re thrilled to be able to connect our customers with their favorite shows and movies using the Rev Home Sat.” commented Dominic Petty, General Manager for Northern Bahamas. “This new television solution offers exciting packages and allows customers to enjoy even more TV content.”
Since these communities are primarily off our traditional fiber network, this product utilizes satellite technology which can be installed on a home by home basis. The installation and equipment are provided free to customers in these communities.
The introduction of this service has meant the discontinuation of Free to Air channels in some communities. The REV team has been on the ground, visiting door to door to ensure that all residents who want the new service are able to transition to REV Home Sat quickly and easily. To date, more than 2,000 customers on 16 islands have been successfully upgraded to date.
REV’s CEO Franklyn Butler commented, “I am delighted to see this new service come to life which allows us to serve the entire Bahamas tv services with lots of choice in entertainment for the consumer. With ALIV’s world class LTE network for broadband and mobile services coupled with this REV Home Sat CBL Group is truly the #1 telecommunications company in the Bahamas, providing services for all Bahamians, everywhere.” The company will continue to reach every household in every community with this new and upgraded service.
Customers interested in signing up for REV Home Sat or any other REV services can call 242-300-2200 or send a Whatsapp to 738-9060.
