Our grandson plays football for a Pac12 college. Direct TV does not offer Pac12 channels and we are not open to changing away from Direct. We subscribe to SlingTV to see the games for 3 more years. We have Verizon cell service. Our RV TV is HD but not smart. We have watched the games on our tablet (SlingTV app) in a hotel before that had good wifi. What is the best way to ensure we can see the games when we travel this Fall? We will be going from SoCal to Colorado (to see a game) then on to Missoula then home. We'll be gone at least a month, possibly two. Thanks!

Your Verizon service should do it, but it'll use a lot of data. You may luck out and find CG wifi, but that's iffy.

One thing you can do is subscribe to the dvr option to record if you cannot get it live.

Is there a DVR option on Sling?

Thank you so much! I just called Sling and we already have the cloud DVR service because it comes with the extra football channels. That will help if we don't have good wifi where we are at during game time.

WALMART has a great price on a 24-inch SMART MODE HDTV set... It has inputs for all those things... I am using two of the elcheapo 24-inch units for computer monitors... I paid $88 each for them over xmas… They are a 24-inch PHILLIPS 3000 Series...

Made me a nice computer Desk top setup as shown here...
Feeding these with two LAPTOPS... One for social media and the other one is my main OFFICE laptop... Only do my wild surfing using the old laptop...

You might be able to setup something like this for your kids to play with on RV Trips...

I don't think so. If I'm not mistaken, you need good WiFi on both ends.
