Sonu Satellite and DIRECTV offer two types of equipment systems for Hotels and Motels:

DIRECTV Head-End Systems  |  DIRECTV Residential Experience (DRE) Systems

DIRECTV Residential Experience (DRE) Systems

The DIRECTV Residential Experience (DRE) system more closely resembles the at-home experience, and allows your guests access to potentially hundreds of channels, many of which are in HD. One receiver is installed at each TV, which enables the viewer to have access to the full programming packages you’ve selected.  These receivers are small enough to be discreetly mounted behind each TV or be hidden behind furniture.  The DIRECTV Residential Experience also features a simplified, anti-microbial remote control designed for hospitality businesses.  The DRE is a favorite amongst hoteliers across the nation for many reasons including:


  • Fully customizable welcome screen
  • User-friendly, interactive program guide
  • Maximum access to HD Channels

DIRECTV COM3000 Headend System

The COM3000 Headend system offers up to 23 HD or SD channels per blade, and up to 138 channels per chassis within an easily expandable platform. The COM3000 supports 4K HDR Satellite Broadcast Channels, giving your business the resolution to make 4K commercial TVs look amazing with live television. Manage the COM3000 network through a local web interface, or manage multiple properties via a single centralized hub. The COM3000 is also FCC tested as the lowest consumer of power in the commercial television industry. Some key features of the COM3000 Headend System include:


  • Custom channel line up
  • Optional scrolling on-screen channel guide
  • All equipment stored in a centralized location
  • Compatible with most wiring
  • 4K UHD Programming Ready
  • Most channels in smallest Headend footprint

DIRECTV Analog Headend Systems

Analog Headend TV Systems are custom-built for each individual property and ideal for any number of rooms. The DIRECTV HOSPITALITY equipment is installed in a central location, away from customer contact, so your guests will not gain access to the satellite equipment. In most cases, a building’s existing cable wiring can be used with little to no modifications. You choose not only the number of channels, but also which channels you want to show. This allows you to meet the most exacting brand criteria. With an analog headend system, you can rest assured your guests are getting the best entertainment with no filler channels, and your guests can flip through channels without ever knowing they are watching a satellite service.  Some key features of the Headend System include:


  • Custom channel line up
  • Optional scrolling on-screen channel guide
  • All equipment stored in a centralized location
  • Compatible with most wiring

Sonu Satellite also offers specials not available through most retailers.
