You have to pay a month at a time, but you just call them up and disconnect the service at the end of your weekend and when you reconnect five weeks later for your next trip, most of your month is still there. Read my earlier post here: satelite tv(It's post #29 if the link doesn't take you all the way there.)

In Canada I use my corporate phone and data plan (paid for by my employer. I do ensure the data is carefully managed. In the US we use a pay as you go Verizon hotspot; which works for us very well.

TV, just the antenna, we aren't big TV watchers in the trailer though.

this is done through a media player .. either a Boxee or WD live and a fairly large external hard drive, which is a WD 2 terribite. Also a necessity for doing this is to have anti-virus software installed .. not the freebe stuff that is pulled off the net.
so basically you search out anything that you want to download, install reputable software ... and start loading the programs that you wish to view onto your laptop of desktop computers download files. After this is done, you then transfer/copy these files to your external hard drive via a USB hookup .. and voila .. you have a movable source of entertainment for either your home, or your RV.
Basically the Boxee and WD live media players can decode any type of media file, and play it. With this option, you can run the players from a WIFI signal in your home, allowing you to get netflix and other programs, and also allowing you to surf the net and answer emails, via your television.
The newer televisions have this option, including the media player, however they are not up to speed with certain facets of internet files, and some are a chore to operate. So this is why i have chosen an external player.

it all sounds confusing at first ... it really is basically plug and play ... download - transfer and view ...

if your still interested .. you can pm me and i will gladly answer your questions ..
