Anyone know what package it is that some of these companies are getting from DirecTV for their trucks? TransAm driver showed me his set-up with DirecTV and he has 100 channels with DVR and NFL gameday ticket. I was wondering if that was a dish set-up on the truck or just a regular cable box? Are there any other options out there for drivers to have tv channels in their truck? Thanks Guys

I would think you would have to have a dish of some sort... it's direct tv... that's sat service. It's also not like you can hook up a cable line anywhere... I can see it now... walking into pilot... "yeah ugh do you have a cable outlet I can hook this up to?" while holding a 200' coax cable running out to your truck haha.

They are wireless cable boxes bud, not wired

You need a dish. Something like a Winegard GM-2000
