How to Use the Satellite System Controls

Recognizing that our clients are audio/video aficionados, when it comes to entertainment, Marathon Coach is continually searching for the latest and best technology. This is why we equip all new coaches with top model HDTVs as well as offer multiple satellite experiences between the three receivers. Providers like Dish Network and DirecTV offer UHD receivers for the stationary satellite dish. In-Motion satellite reception will remain standard definition due to the size of the satellite dish itself. Marathon Coach wants to ensure you’re comfortable working with this advanced technology and innovation.
