January 2, 2013:
KNOXVILLE, TN: IdleAir, the leading truck stop electrification (TSE) service provider, has added a new entertainment package, ConvoyTV+Power™. ConvoyTV+Power™ service includes more than 45 channels of DIRECTV (including ESPN), 120V electricity inside and outside the cab, and basic Internet access on the IdleAir touchscreen.
Beginning January 16, 2013, ConvoyTV+Power™ will be offered at a flat $1.49 per hour (plus tax), and available through IdleAir member cards.
ConvoyTV+Power™ is the second service package offered by IdleAir, and customers may choose either ConvoyTV+Power™ or Premium Service, which includes heat, air conditioning, DIRECTV, 120V electricity, and basic Internet access on the touchscreen.
Professional drivers and fleets will continue to enjoy Premium Service at all IdleAir locations, using the same member card and fleet card options they have used previously.
Customers will earn Convoy Points™ when purchasing ConvoyTV+Power™: 1 point per hour plus 25 points for every 8 hours of continuous use. Customers who take advantage of all IdleAir discounts and promotions receive a combined 12% discount, effectively paying only $1.31 per hour for ConvoyTV+Power™.
“For years, customers have asked for additional service packages,” says Ethan Garber, IdleAir CEO. “With ConvoyTV+Power™, we deliver on this promise to our customers. At $1.49 per hour, the new ConvoyTV+Power™ is an especially good value for drivers who asked for unbundled access to electricity and Internet, and access to their favorite sports on satellite TV.”
