Yup!
OTA or camp cable. Thatís it.
Well, we tried sat TV for a while. Our use of it equaled about 12 bucks per movie.
OTA rules!

My T Mobile cell plan allows me to stream TV shows from major networks on my schedule. They don’t throttle me until after 50 gigs and then only in busy areas. Last winter in Q I was using 80-100 gigs monthly. My iPad Pro uses a lot less power than the TV. When at DD's house I use their WiFi.

At last I've got enough bandwidth to upload some pics from Alaska again.

The first three were shot from inside the RV looking over Cook Inlet. One of the four volcanos spewed some ash and steam for us one evening. Never seen it before not in pictures.

Sunset at about midnight.

Where's the Agree button when I need it!

(Altho if laid up, unable to knit or read, cook or sit under the stars, spin yarn or fold origami, kayak or build a fire ..., I might think about turning on a TV.)

Yay, Moose!

Hey, you gave me an idea. I'm going to open the side compartment and turn on the TV in MI, 24/7. That should keep the spaces next to us empty.

Great idea Wayne, you can tune it in to The Bandstand and we can Sock Hop all night!

Maybe they'll play our song, the one we danced to at the first GC!

Did you upgrade your antenna or still using the crank up Batwing. I am in the process of simplifying all that stuff. Some say you have to upgrade your antenna.

Ok that is good to know so mine should work the way it is. The previous owner put a Kingdome dish on it and disconnected the antenna so I am trying to find the lead in from it.
We tried Satellite before and it just is not worth it for as much as we use the coach.
