I've had both DirecTV and DishTV and own the receivers I have. Over the years I'd switch back and forth because of pricing changes. But I've pretty much stopped doing that after my last switch back to DishTV. Other than the constantly escalating prices the things I like about Dish at home and on the road are: at home I get the HD channels at no extra cost, I get most of my locals at no extra cost and I can integrate most of my remaining local stations with a simple antenna attachment. On the road I can use DishAnywhere without the need for an extra receiver, dish setup or monthly payment - all I need is a network connection and my Mobley works fine for that in most places. This setup allows me to stream all my local channels including the ones I can only get from my home antenna, and all my Dish channels. I use a FireTV Stick in the RV do do this and that also gives me access to a bunch of other free content.


This is the part I am very interested in... I think you can do the same with DirecTV... When you get away from your home may be the real problem to deal with??? I suspect DISH is better at this than DIRECTV...

I picked up one of those $88 PHILLIPS 24-inch smart TV's from Walmart and can watch al kinds of internet based things.. great picture and sound...

Perhaps one of you Dish users can confirm that Dish Anywhere will allow me to see anything on my home DVR from any location. That is to say that if I am in Florida, I can watch something recorded on my DVR in Missouri as long as I have an internet connection.

That feature might be worth giving up NFL Sunday Ticket.

Dish has been our provider for several years. Extremely satisfied with our ability to boondock and still watch college football when Michigan and/or Notre Dame are playing.

Until a few minutes ago I was sitting in our motorhome just over the Florida line St Marys, GA watching the local news from the Hopper w/Sling at our upstate NY family cottage with DishAnywhere on our FireTVstick. When the national news came on, I switched to the Hopper w/Sling in the motorhome and the Jacksonville, FL locals. Because we're getting the locals here, our NY Hopper does not get the sat locals at all, only getting the NY locals OTA. Other than that, we can watch anything on the NY Hopper just as if we were there. When we're on the road between parks, we frequently have the NY Hopper record programs so we can view them later with DishAnywhere.

Yes you can. However, both your home DVR (aka a Hopper) and your RV iPad or whatever must be connected to fast Internet connections . . . and this connection with burn up a ton of data.

BTW, when your home Hopper and your receiving device are both on the same WiFi network, then no broadband data is used.

Sometime it makes sense. We are currently in Athens, GA and there is no "English" OTA TV available so I can't watch the local news. I found an Atlanta ABC app on my Firestick and I stream the morning and evening news for a 1/2 hour and then switch back to satellite.
Free streaming of a limited amount will keep your limited unlimited data happy. timmac has a truly unlimited plan and pays well for the streaming services he use so free is never free!


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?
