I couldn't live without...BulkTV

Share this article:
Prior to adopting BulkTV satellite television, Todd Couzins, director of information services at Cross Keys Village — The Brethren Home Community, was getting dozens of calls per day from residents who were constantly having trouble using cable receivers. When there weren't usage problems at the continuing care retirement community, residents were upset that they couldn't upgrade their service to receive high definition, digital or premium channels.

By switching cable providers to BulkTV, Couzins says residents can elect to upgrade their service to HD or subscribe to premium channels by contacting the company directly. He was even able to maintain the facility's policy of not allowing individual satellite dishes in the hundreds of independent- and assisted-living units on the campus.

“I wanted to keep the dishes as hidden as possible,” Couzins says.

Satellite TV for residents
BulkTV offers residents satellite television with 80 channels (with upgrade opportunities). When converted to analog, they become easier for older residents to use. One dish can serve the entire facility, and benefits include a free customizable community channel.
