DirecTV HD

Because DirecTV offers so many different channels, their service is simultaneously broadcast from three separate satellites. The s6HD processes all three signals at once, delivering the complete DirecTV HD experience right aboard your boat. Multiple TVs onboard can tune to any program independent of what other sets might be watching, which means no more debating over Cartoons vs. Sports. Additionally, tracking three satellites at once keeps the channel guide up to date and enables use of your DVR.

Performance Delivered

The s6HD incorporates Intellian’s proprietary iQ² Technology, which guarantees boaters the fastest signal acquisition and most rock-solid TV reception in all sea conditions. Unlike conventional systems, the s6HD is lightweight has a wide elevation angle (5°-90°) and boasts a next generation alignment control system that delivers seamless, uninterrupted satellite reception for boaters travelling throughout US waters.

With its Single Wire Multi-switch (SWM) the Intellian s6HD enables up to 16 receivers to view all DirecTV channels, with the possibility to upgrade to 32 SWM receivers.
