Kenworth has added a factory-installed, in-cab satellite TV pre-wire option for new T680 76-inch sleepers to support the EpicVue satellite television subscription service.

EpicVue is a provider of in-cab satellite TV packaged for the trucking industry and available for fleets with 20 or more vehicles.  Kenworth markets the T680 as “The Driver’s Truck,” and sees the service as a way for over-the-road and regional fleets to 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,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “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.”

EpicVue’s package offers over 100 channels of DirecTV programming, including premium channels like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and NFL Sunday Ticket. The in-cab satellite TV systems are offered to qualifying fleets for a monthly subscription fee under either a three-year or five-year contract.

Kenworth customers ordering the new EpicVue option must specify KW’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.
