Never a problem "if" the rv park has streamable WiFi.
Put 30k on the rig traveling the great USA and about 90% of camgrounds WiFi unusable.
40/month Dish with local channels work for us.

Exclamation Thread warning

The thread is about Dish vs. DirecTV....not SAT vs. Streaming.

Let's get back on topic...thanks.

Actually, if you are using Dish and a Wally or similar device in your RV you are streaming content from the home DVR over the internet and need to be aware of speed limitations in the RV park you are at.

What? You are so wrong. Don't speak about Dish when you don't know what you are talking about.

DishAnywhere is an Internet function and has nothing to do with a Wally.

Im sure if you have a high speed connection at home you can indeed stream thousands of programs.
As stated above, drop the streaming talk and stay on-topic.
Feel free to start a new streaming post.

Since we are talking about Dish vs. Direct, how does Direct get it's on demand content sat or internet (like Dish does)?

If this inference (bolded) is that Dish uses a broadband connection to provide viewing of on-demand contact...that is not factual.

"Dish Anywhere" does use the internet/broadband, but the core of the on-demand content is beamed down by the SAT (after you "buy" the event - either on-screen or on-line).

Like, we recently received a free on-demand movie coupon (perk for a channel outage). Since our Dish receiver in the RV is not connected to a phone or internet connection to "buy" on-screen, we used the coupon code on-line to activate the movie. Two minutes later we were watching that movie...beamed down from the SAT.

DirecTV does the same thing.

Safe travels

For a little more clarity. There is pay-per-view programming that is satellite provided at scheduled times. No Internet is needed unless you want to pay for the pay-per-view online.

The Dish Hoppers also provide for On Demand programming that is delivered to the Hopper by the Internet. On Demand programming, some pay-per-view some free, is available whenever you want to view the program. This Internet use is optional.

The terms On Demand and pay-per-view are not interchangeable. On Demand does use the Internet, pay-per-view doesn't.

Thank you for that clarification

I see now the term "on demand" is used to discuss "Dish Anywhere" per their website:
https://www.mydish.com/perks/on-demand
vs
https://www.mydish.com/pay-per-view

DirecTV does "on-demand" the same as Dish...requires a broadband enabled receiver and highspeed internet connection:
On Demand Movies & TV Shows | DIRECTV on Demand

I would expect that most of this is academic for the RV market since good high-speed internet access on the road and therefore streaming video is still the hardest part of the puzzle.

Safe travels and thanks again.

The smaller dis VIP211z boxes do indeed have a network connector on the backside but its not used.
I did plug an external hard drive in the back but had to psy a 40.00 one time fee. Only can record one channel but nice if your away during the event.
