KVH Industries said today that it will offer rebates up to $200 through the end of April on its TracVision M1 and M3 satellite TV systems.  The M1 and M3 systems are typically used on smaller boats, although the M3DX unit, with its HDTV capability could easily serve as the workhorse on almost any size passagemaker.

According to KVH, the TracVision M1ST, and M1DX/M1-C qualify for $100 rebates, while the M3ST and M3DX qualify for $200 rebates. You can see the rebate details and get the form at this link. And if you’d like to compare the various KVH sat TV systems, try this page on the KVH website. The company also recently offered upgrade rebates for customers moving to its HD7 system, as we reported here on OceanLines.

The M3DX is usually available for around $4,000 and its 15.5-inch radome diameter is small enough to fit nicely into any flybridge or hardtop antenna farm. It has a fairly sensitive antenna and is suitable for open-water tracking.  So, if you’ve had your eye on a nice cheap new LCD HDTV for the salon, this might be a timely incentive to add the satellite TV that will ensure you can catch the Red Sox games on NESN this summer.
