Use the same service you have at home till you go full time.
Buy a second dish at a garage sale or auction somewhere and a tripod and just take a receiver from home.
You can get the fancy gadgets to help you set up the dish at the campground to get the reception. MAKE SURE you are using RG6 cable and not the "thin" stuff for normal cable. Only RG6 will carry the signal from your dish.
So you know, if you go more than a hundred miles or so from home, you won't get your local channels like you do at home. BTDT.
Hope that helps
