Where do you do most of your camping? Do you have good cell service? Or do you camp in places with internet or WiFi? We have Dish Network and I use their Slingbox. You have access to your complete satellite service and if you have a DVR you can access it and watch anything you have recorded. We use a wireless card through Verizon and it works out great. No setting up a dish when you get to camp plus you can catch up on the things you have recorded. We have a couple places we race at that have bad cell service so I bought a good cell booster antenna and we have never lost service since.

I'm referring to dish sling adapter. See link below:

Just to add to motocross camper. The service through dish network is no extra charge. You do have to have one of 2 receivers which I can't remember which right now. You do have to buy 1 time add on device of 100 dollars. After that it is 100% free on the dish side . You may have to pay for Internet service ETC. I may do the same thing. The nice thing is you can watch dish network on Internet phone or your laptop then hook to hdmi tv. For that matter you can watch right from your laptop.

I have DirecTV because we have it at home and it only cost me $5 a month as another room. Since you're already with Dish Network I would think they could give you the same deal.

I use a KVH R6DX dish with a Dish Network VIP 612 HD DVR. I love having the HD. I also have a 390BH.
