In appreciation of the long-standing partnership with ABVI Princess Anne, Bulk TV recently deployed a complimentary upgrade of the customer's TV system to the state of the art DIRECTV residential dxperience (DRE), which offers guests over 100 HD channels and an interactive programming guide.  Along with a top-of-the-line HD system, Bulk TV has also given ABVI Princess Anne free TV programming service for the next 12 months.
