The Carolina Inn has renewed its partnership with Bulk TV and Internet for free-to-guest DirecTV services. Built in 1924, The Carolina Inn is located on the  University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill. Bulk TV began its partnership with The Carolina Inn in 2009 with a goal to enhance the guestrooms with superior amenities while maintaining the historical grandeur that makes The Carolina Inn unique.

"Our customer care representative was great to work with, and met my expectations over and over again," said James Doubts, director of engineering for The Carolina Inn. "The biggest reasons that The Carolina Inn wants to continue the relationship with Bulk TV is their customer service and reliable equipment, which we have experienced over the years."
