television on the road

has anyone used this service?

when we were full time on the road we used direct tv and after a learning curve were able to get satisfactory service.

we have been non travelers for the past year and when we moved back into a house we signed up with time warner for tv, but mostly for internet service.

so now we need a way to take tv with us when we travel on a part time basis.

dish for my rv seems to provide a dish network where one buys the receiver, and of course the antenna and then can pay on a month by month basis...with no contract or other encumbrances.....

dish network has advantages over direct tv in that it offers this rv service, but most importantly for me it includes Sirius/XM programming via the tv satellite.

so has anyone had experience with dishformyrv and this program....

and the Four P's(Paula, Phoenix and Peabody II and Pearl)…Peabody is here…..

I have a Dish Tailgater and a 211z receiver. I am however a Dish subscriber at home. The good side is that other than the purchase of the receiver and Tailgater, my cost is $7 monthly. I received the same services as I do at home. I can shut the receiver down at any time thus canceling the $7 monthly charge.

It looks like dishformyrv service is very similar. First like me, you will pay retail price for the equipment. No subsidies. Different from me is you will have to subscribe to a plan which includes various channels which is obviously more expensive. The only question that is not clear to me is whether this service also includes a monthly charge for the receiver access. So it looks like the lowest monthly charge is $39.99. The question I would ask is whether they will also charge you $7 a month for the receiver access.

I'm not sure what they do about local channel access under this plan. With my service I can ask them to change the local channels to those in the area (assuming they have a local channel package in the area you are staying at). I haven't been in an area that doesn't have a local channel package, so I don't know if they will switch you to a national feed if possible.
