Shouldn't be that difficult to get Dish Mobile RV service. I bought the Dish HD antenna and supporting receiver on line. Once received I just called Dish and told them I was traveling in a motorhome and wanted to subscribe to their service. No contracts! Bought the Dish for My RV app for $10.00 which makes locating the three sats (110,119,129) very easy.

I call them when I haved moved to a different area so that I can receive local programming. I will admit to being frustrated at times when I am talking with someone in another country whom I can barely understand. I pay about $70 a month for my plan which provides all cable news as well as multiple ESPN stations. Pretty satisfied.

jondrew, I have just now looked this system up and will speak with them tomorrow. So far it sounds like this is exactly what I want. I spent some time with direct tv Saturday and wanted to pull my hair out. I can't believe after 20 calls to both dish and direct no on mentioned this. I will keep everyone up to date.
Thanks

The FCC rules prohibit banning over the air antenna reception devices (OTARD).

The co-op should not ban them.

I got tired of Comcast prices and decided to dump them and go with Dish. I leased an additional receiver and purchased a Tailgater that automatically locates the satellites to watch TV. I pay $7 a month and have same service as home. For months I'm not using the RV I can afford to pay the $7. If I want I can use the receiver on another TV at home.

With the Tailgater all I do is point it to the South. Hopefully there are no trees in the way. Turn the TV on to set it up I get a screen where I pick what state I am in. I select the state and scan and it locates the satellites downloads the channels and the TV guide. I think it takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Call Winegard customer support (800-288-8094) or go to their web site. You an get a X-1 or X-2 automatic portable antenna and a dish 211 receiver for around $500. With Dish Pay As You Go you can get various sports channels and local net works all in HD. Weingard should be able to answer your Dish Program questions. Once hooked up and pay for a month, you can suspend your service and they will credit you for the unused days. Then when you want service call them again and pay the delta to get you credit to the month amount and change your service address to get local programming, if you have moved. I have done this several times in one month. Dish phone customer service is a pain, just ask to speak to an American RV expert or hang up and call again.

Get the Pathway X2 from Wineguard for Dish. Much better than my Tailgater was. Bigger dish so it is less sensitive to obstructions. Can see both eastern and western arc sattilites, and it supports 2 receivers.

I keep thinking of getting the roof mounted Traveler, but since most camping I do is in sites with trees, the X2 portable antenna allows me to move to a clear area without having to reorient the MH. Not to mention it was about $800 cheaper

We too use Dish Pay as you Go, it is tied to our home zipcode so we receive all local programming, which we love. Local news, local sports, and local weather so we can keep an eye on things at home. This works best for us....even tho we will not be watching the Steelers this year! (LOL!)

Been a Directv customer for years and always good service and never a problem with billing. When Hurricane Charly hit our town and destroyed our sat dish's, Dish network wanted $200 to re install them. Directv installed them all for Free and switched anyone over from Dish at no charge. That's a company I'll do business with as long as they treat their customers like that.
