Global Eagle launches crew TV service

Global Eagle Entertainment has launched OceanPrime TV, a live TV package designed for crews in the commercial maritime market.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The OceanPrime TV service provides live access to 24-hour news, sports and current event channels. Two channels can be chosen from a list of four for a subscription package of $299 per month, or all four channels can be included for $499. Both package options require a 24-month contract.

Installation is performed in a single day by Global Eagle resellers, the company says, with a dedicated Ku-band antenna, starting at 60cm in diameter, deployed on the ship.

“With the launch of OceanPrime TV, we allow commercial shipping to improve crew morale with a very quick upgrade,” said Ole Sivertsen, Global Eagle’s senior VP maritime.

“By offering live TV programming at sea, experiences on maritime vessels will be enriched for the captain and crew.”{/mprestriction}
