I can only speak for DirecTV. We have it at home and in the motorhome with a Tivo Unit. We only pay an additional $5 per month for the motorhome on our plan. The Tivo is included in the monthly fee for all of our units $5.95 / month for all 3. The receptions in very good. Our dish will find the signal pretty quickly. However it doesn't matter which one you have you need a clear path to the southern sky. In our case when we are parked in a wooded site we still have programs we've recorded and also use the cable available at the campground or the antenna.

I use DirecTV at my home. When we use the rv, I just unplug one of the receivers from the house along with a SAT DISH and stand I purchased from EBAY. Works great for me. The only problem is if you have the local channels in you subscription package. You will not be able to get the locals after about 225-250 miles from your home. But all the rest there will be no problem.

Like Daisy I use direct TV with a HD antenna I bought on Ebay and take a receiver from home. I made a mount out of 1 1/4 pvc. I found the plans for the mount on a rv forum, don't remember which.

We have been with Dish Network for almost 10 years now. They have always been real good to us and have great customer support when something isn't working right. Now days I don't think it matters too much which one you go with, you just have to choose the programming and price that works for you.
