As the company's surge in organic growth continues, Bulk TV plans to increase its customer base by more than 100,000 rooms by the end of the year while increasing its total number employees by 10 percent.

"Bulk TV delivered a robust first quarter, and we are well positioned for a record year of sales growth," CEO of Bulk TV Dave O'Connell said. "Our substantial progression has been primarily driven by the development of relationships with many of the hotel brands, including the signing of a master services agreement with Hilton Worldwide last year and partnerships with other leading hotel brands and healthcare management groups.  Our experienced and dedicated engineering, project management, sales and customer support teams continue to do an exceptional job servicing our growing customer base."
 
Incorporated in 2004, the company was formed with a mission to develop a competitively priced alternative to cable tailored to meet the unique needs of the hospitality and healthcare markets.  More than ten years later, Bulk TV now provides DIRECTV services to more than 350,000 rooms in thousands of properties nationally, and has been named DIRECTV L&I Provider of the Year for the past seven years based on new customer activations and customer retention.
