I have nothing current , but four years ago a friend from southern BC , spent $2400 on a system to use in the USA and within two years he was looking at another $800 to keep it operational .
So check out long term operation on any system you choose .

Check out the Shaw Traveller antenna made by Winegard - the largest manufacturer of RV antennas. They have a unit. Best to purchase in the US . I installed a Winegard roof mount unit for Bell/Dish satellite in 2010 and it works well. Installed it on the roof in an hour or so - be prepared to drill hole(s) to install it. The widely used Dish unit was about $700usd 10 years ago.

You MUST use Shaw Direct for use south of the border since Bell doesn't transmit farther than about 100 miles south of the border.
The $800 update to the older Wingard dishes should be included in a new dish..
Check it out. Enjoy
