EpicVue+ fleet channel adds new way to engage drivers

The in-cab streaming service that gives long-haul drivers DirecTV access now offers fleets a dedicated portal to communicate with drivers.

NASHVILLE—Communication can be critical to keeping professional drivers engaged with fleets. In-cab entertainment provider EpicVue announced a new way to speak directly to drivers during Truckload 2024.

Fleets providing drivers with EpicVue+, a streaming entertainment and education platform, can now use the platform’s Engage channel to communicate via video with drivers. A longtime provider of in-cab satellite TV, EpicVue+ offers drivers live and on-demand TV over WiFi or cellular connection.

“This gave us the ability to create a dedicated channel for each of our customers that would allow our fleet companies to communicate directly with their drivers,” Lance Platt, CEO of EpicVue, said during a press conference at Truckload Carrier Association’s annual conference here in Opryland.

Fleet managers can use the portal to send daily, weekly, or monthly videos to drivers on the system they use to get 100-plus TV channels while on the road. Drivers can also submit videos for the channel, Platt said.

“The idea of fleet companies having an opportunity to create content is to create value to and for the drivers,” Platt said. “Drivers need and deserve to feel valued and part of something.”

How EpicVue+ in-cab entertainment works

Drivers will never miss their favorite shows, news, or sporting events with the EpicVue+ in-cab entertainment, education, and engagement platform. EpicVue+ delivers live and on-demand premium content, a dedicated fleet channel, and includes an interactive training platform through core components, including:

Entertainment: EpicVue+ offers drivers live TV, on-demand content, and access to recorded content from DirecTV and premium networks. Its DVR also records all channels and provides drivers with access for seven to 10 days.

Educate: EpicVue+ portals can be dedicated to training and education to help implement best practices and reinforce compliance. Fleet operators can manage content distribution or enable access to online driver training from partners such as CarriersEdge.

Engage: EpicVue+ has a custom home screen for each carrier. It also has a fleet channel for company announcements, fleet news, incentives, and employee recognition.
