New TV sports offerings have rolled out across four Royal Caribbean cruise ships offering guests and crew more choice for major sporting competitions.
New Channel Offerings on Royal Caribbean
Guests and crew members on four Royal Caribbean cruise ships can now enjoy an even greater choice of sports thanks to a new mobile maritime communications system. A new entertainment system named “CRUISESAT” has rolled out on Independence of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and currently the world’s largest cruise ship Symphony of the Seas.
Chuck Sackermann, chief executive officer of Digital Video Systems, said:
“Our direct-to-ship delivery of CRUISESAT to Royal Caribbean International provides an elevated linear television sports and entertainment experience for Royal’s guests and crew members.”
“We are excited and honored to have Royal Caribbean International as a CRUISESAT customer as they expand their entertainment content to include the very best linear television services available within the territory.”
The new system offers a range of channels directly to the cruise ship in high definition. It will expand the sport choices onboard with marquee U.S. and major international sports from ESPN flagship networks, as well as college athletics from SEC Network and ESPN U.
This means guests will be able to enjoy watching the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, NASCAR, Indy Racing League, all golf and tennis Grand Slam events, UEFA Champions League and other top soccer, cricket and more.
More Royal Caribbean ships will follow with the new channel offerings. Oasis of the Seas will be the next to receive CRUISESAT in November and By Spring 2020 Allure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Freedom of the Seas will be fitted out.
CRUISESAT is brought to the maritime industry by Maritime Mobile Communications which provides popular high-definition news, entertainment, sports and cultural networks to the global maritime market using a single antenna system.
