MIDDLETOWN, R.I.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2007--KVH Industries,
Inc., (Nasdaq: KVHI), the nation's leading manufacturer of mobile
satellite TV systems for RVs and automobiles, announced today that it
is offering a new extended warranty program for its TracVision(R)
satellite TV systems. The KVH Platinum Protection Plan
(www.kvh.com/platinum) provides a two-year extension to the factory
parts and labor warranty on its award-winning TracVision A7 automotive
system as well as the company's TracVision R-series satellite TV
systems for RVs and motorhomes.
"Our number one priority is customer satisfaction because we know
how important our TracVision satellite TV systems are when you're out
on the road and want to catch the big game or breaking news,"
commented Ian Palmer, KVH's executive vice president for satellite
sales. "Our new Platinum Protection Plan offers our customers the
peace of mind that comes with knowing that their TracVision system
will remain fully covered by our outstanding warranty program for even
longer. We've also made it convenient to purchase the Platinum
Protection Plan, with an easy online option available when our
customers register their new or existing products at
All TracVision systems are automatically covered by KVH's standard
warranty period - one year for parts and labor in the case of the
automotive TracVision A7 and two years for parts, one year for labor
in the case of the TracVision R-series. The Platinum Protection Plan
extends the terms of these warranties for two additional years from
the date of purchase. Owners of older digital satellite TV systems,
including the original TracVision A5, L3, and S3 models, are also
eligible to join the Platinum Protection Plan as long as they are
still within the first year of their original factory warranty.
In addition to the two-year warranty extension, KVH Platinum
Protection Plan members enjoy other benefits, including:
- Toll-free technical and repair calls with "FastTrack" response
- "FastTrack" product repair or replacement
- Free shipping for factory repairs or replacement
