Another option would be to look at streaming via wifi or cell service. All depends on where you park but if you have good cell service or a CG with good WiFi you can stream a lot of shows, movies etc.

another plug for streaming. ATT has a 100 gig hotspot plan,
I understand T-mobile has an unlimited one that also offers free netflix, it wont work where we live, you would have to research your chosen areas.

IMO “ CG with good WiFi” is an oxymoron. there’s good wifi and then there’s CG wifi. most CG wifi that i have experienced is fine for e-mail and surfing but not for video streaming.

You CANNOT get satellite TV without paying a satellite TV provider. i.e. DirecTV or DISH. DISH does offer a month to month contract. You buy the dome antenna and receiver and then setup an Outdoor account.
If you mean you just want to be able to watch cable TV channels then your OTA TV antenna can get you many and streaming can get you the rest,

Dish portable then get the Dish anywhere app. Anything I have at home is available on other devices away from home, you do need the home receiver connected to the net. Dish at home the travelers $7 a month add on when I got mine.

I believe with Dish you can activate it when traveling and turn it off when you want.

Seems simple enough.

Just started full timing and found that even with OTA antenna, streaming (Youtube TV), and cable when available, about half the time we still had no TV. Finally broke down and bought Wally Dish receiver to hook into our Winegard satellite that's built into our Tiffin, but we never used. Works great. I think we pay $60 mo. for local and regular programming, month to month. I was thinking of buying a portable dish to hook up because some CGs with trees, block signal. Can't move satellite receiver when sitting on roof of coach. Wally box was $150. Packages including portable dish and receiver list for about $300, but are usually on sale for under $200 at CW etc.

We stream from our phone and have a WeBoost cell signal booster. So far so good, and we get the same programs in the RV as we do at home for no additional money.

I just got my Wally box earlier this week. Installed and activated it today. We have a Winegard Mission in motion satellite, prepped from the factory. It was $75 for the Wally and $54 for pay as you go (no contract) you can cancel at anytime even after 2 weeks. They have dish and Wally combos from Dish that you can purchase as a package. It’s worth checking into.

Streaming is great if you have service, a few places we’ve been to have no service so streaming is useless. And when you do stream you are limited in data. What I do when we have service is mirror my Iphine onto the TV with the apple lightning to HDMI connector. That works perfectly.
