KVH TracVision M1 Brings Satellite TV to Small Boat Owners

20% Price Reduction on Small, Powerful Antenna Brings Premium Satellite TV
Within Reach of More Boaters

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Satellite TV is a luxury
that more boaters can now take to the water thanks toKVH Industries, Inc.
(Nasdaq:KVHI). Long considered an amenity only found on superyachts and cruise
ships, satellite TV is now a benefit every boat owner can add to their
investment, enjoying access to news, sports, weather, and favorite television
shows just like at home, even while the boat is in motion. KVH is making it
simple and affordable to bring satellite TV onboard by significantly reducing
the price of its 12.5 inch TracVision^® M1 marine satellite TV antenna by 20%.

"Having satellite TV onboard means you can spend the weekend on the water
without missing the big game or a new episode of your favorite show. The kids
can stay entertained with cartoons while adults enjoy easy access to weather
reports and news, so everyone is happy," explains Jim George, KVH's director
of sales for satellite products. "The TracVision M1's compact design and
outstanding reliability make it a valuable addition to any boat. Plus, KVH
maintains a nationwide network of factory-certified dealers so installation
and service are easy to find at marinas all over the country. With these
benefits and the new, lower price, we're making it easy to add value to the
investment of boat ownership with an amenity that is simple to install and
offers years of enjoyment."

Weighing just 7.5 lbs., the in-motion TracVision M1 is the world's smallest
and lightest satellite TV system for boats, bringing satellite TV programming
to the water throughout the U.S. and its coastal waters. The system offers
open water tracking and in-motion performance typical of larger antennas while
fitting the sleek exterior design of vessels as small as 20 feet. The
TracVision M1's small size, easy setup, Whisper Drive™ motor technology, and
versatile mounting options allow for convenient installation on nearly any
vessel. The versatile TracVision M1 comes in two configurations to meet
boaters' preferences. The TracVision M1 includes an exclusive, integrated 12V
DIRECTV^® receiver/controller – just add a TV and your DIRECTV service
subscription to bring DIRECTV's standard-definition programming onboard. For
boaters who prefer DISH Network^® or want the freedom to easily switch among
satellite TV service providers, the TracVision M1DX offers outstanding
flexibility with a 12V multiservice interface box/controller that supports
virtually all home receivers from DISH Network and DIRECTV.
