Now’s the time to add satellite TV to your business

Let me guess. Your business is one of the millions that is bringing employees back. Work from home was great, but it’s time for the team to come together. I hear you. But, I have a feeling that you’ll find that the employee experience has changed a little since early 2020. Your people have been at home for a while. They’ve been productive, but they’ve also become accustomed to their own workspaces. They’ve figured out what works best for them, and it might not be the way things were back then. The smart employer knows this, and is working on creating an office experience that really makes sense.

Your employees are used to consuming content while working

Maybe you used to have a policy of “no streaming at work.” Honestly, I think that’s not a lot to ask. If all of your employees streamed video to their desks, there wouldn’t be a lot of extra internet capacity for you to do real work. You can upgrade your business internet — and maybe you should. But you should also look at ways to limit the impact that video consumption has on your resources.

It’s a pretty fair bet that your work-from-home employees have been streaming video at home. Some folks just don’t do well with peace and quiet. They’ve gotten used to watching some sort of video out of the corner of their eyes while working. And you know what, it’s probably helped them be more productive. As a boss, what are you going to do to make sure that productivity gain stays around?

Satellite beats streaming in workplaces

There’s one reason that satellite TV makes sense for businesses. Every person streaming in your office uses up bandwidth. Satellite TV doesn’t take up any of your internet capacity. You can put TVs in workspaces and keep people productive at the same time. A big TV in the lunchroom or warehouse can be a big hit, and what executive doesn’t want a little video perk in their office?

Putting satellite television into a business costs about the same as putting it in a home. In general it’s very inexpensive. If you plan on putting in a bunch of TVs there can be a one-time cost, but it’s going to be nothing compared to the ongoing cost of a much bigger and robust internet plan.

Here’s the secret you need to know

You can’t just call up DIRECTV or DISH and say “I want TV for my business.” The folks in those call centers are all about selling satellite TV for homes. They don’t know how to deal with businesses.
