Bulk TV & Internet Saves O2 Fitness Clubs Over $15,000/Year with DIRECTV Conversion

RALEIGH, N.C., July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulk TV & Internet (Bulk TV), a leading provider of DIRECTV services for commercial properties nationwide announces the recent conversion of (12) O2 Fitness Club locations throughout various parts of North Carolina. O2 is the largest locally owned fitness company in North Carolina.

Following the digital transition in the area, the Raleigh-based company was left without a practical solution to deliver programming to the cardio equipment televisions throughout multiple gym locations. The cable company solution required set-top converter boxes to be installed at every TV in order to maintain service.

Bulk TV's custom-built DIRECTV solution eliminates the need for a set-top box at every TV. The signal is delivered via a centralized headend system over the property's existing cabling, making it an ideal solution for gyms and health clubs. 

"When our organization was faced with the tough decision to make a change away from cable, we thought we would be in for an extremely difficult and painful experience, says Bobby Hall, Regional Vice President of O2 Fitness Clubs. "With less than 45 days notice, we needed to transition 12 health clubs and over 500 televisions from a standard auxiliary cable set up, to something that would work long-term. A representative from Bulk TV was onsite to meet us within 24 hours and knew what needed to be done almost immediately."

The initial goal was to convert the existing television system to a reliable, suitable solution quickly to avoid service interruptions; however, the substantial monthly savings was an added bonus.

Hall continues, "not only did Bulk TV have a reasonable solution, but they had a solution that saved us over $15,000 a year in cable expenses. Equally as impressive was the speed at which the team worked. When all was said and done, they had less than 20 days to overhaul 12 locations that were spread across North Carolina. They got it done with a day to spare. The support from their project management team was also amazing. We were never once left wondering what was going to happen or when. We, at O2 Fitness, can honestly say that this was one of the best vendor relationships we have ever had and would highly recommend the Bulk TV team."

Bulk TV offers exclusive programming, equipment and installation savings to national businesses with multiple locations through the DIRECTV National Accounts Program. In addition to discounts, businesses can take advantage of priority service benefits with a single point of contact, consolidated billing options and customized marketing tools.
