No you still have to have a dish sorry.
But you can use your receiver from home.
I got a free dish from a satellite installer and mounted it to a halogen work light stand.

If you have the AUX outlet in your cabinet from the extra outlet on the outside of your unit, you can put your dish sat into that outlet and then get creative on the wiring inside of your unit. I did it and added an A/B switch so I can switch between RV park input or SAT input. I mounted my Dish box above my TV.
