timmac just likes to ramble about the demise of satellite TV. There is exactly ZERO chance that he is thinking in terms of RVing, just the industry in general. I have to assume he is really ticked off at DirecTV or DISH (one of them ran over is dog or something) as he takes great pleasure in pushing forward all the nonsense. Even if DISH AND DIRECTV gave us the ghost, the Government would step in to ensure that the huge unserved OTA TV population would be able to receive TV. Cellular will never get to these areas either and 5G will never, never, ever get there. Timac lives in the city and things everyone else should as well.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Dish doesn't have the talent to compete in today's world. Just like IBM, GE, etc.

Thanks! It's just hard to explain his nonsense posts (for RV'ers). I get it that he has a grudge and he is at a S&B location, I just don't know why he posts his BS here.

hi and i welcome myself to the topic. maybe i am in the wrong spot,just let me know if so. I am in the process of searching for the options of tv service. One of course that i can use while on the road. We do travel about once per week, throughout the year and a couple times a year at about 4 to 6 weeks. so with that said, i am contemplating using a system that i can just plug in at home and also take it with me while traveling. Cox as far as i know doesn't offer something like this. First off, am i in the right place? secondly, am i crazy? We do have cell service and wifi that i will not change as it has been good in 99.99999 % of all places we have been, even at home whencable is down. Thanks in advance. Jeff & Karen

Hmmm, a successful satellite TV service, a successful business communications and Internet satellite service, the leading streaming TV service, and now a ready-made entry into the prepaid cell phone market that includes hundreds of existing retail outlets and hundreds of knowledgeable talented employees in both front and back office positions to add to their huge spectrum holdings. Yep, there's no way they can compete.

I learned long ago to never count Charlie Ergen out of anything...

Streaming services might be the answer for you in today's market depending on what your viewing habits are.

Just get a Roku box for your RV TV and home TV and stream your movies and such, don't waste your money on the old and outdated satellite TV..

Thousands of free channels on streaming vs 75 junk channels for a $100 a month with satellite, do the math...

And you must have internet, either wired or wireless, for Roku. And since good wired internet at an RV park is essentially nonexistent, and good cell service frequently doesn't exist in remote areas, Roku is at best a marginal solution.

How does streaming turn junk TV into good TV? 1000 junk channels is exactly the same as 75 junk channels. If you don't like what's on TV you won't be any happier streaming.
