Satellite TV for RV

While most RV users have in the past have relied on watching TV while hooked up at whatever campground/park they set up at.  As with much of the world, the state of RV TV technology has exploded over the past couple years.  As with expansion in any technology explosion, the market has spread out to various different practices and packages when it comes to watching TV in your RV.  Once satellite TV came along, it changed the way people viewed the medium, not only in their houses, but in their RVs!!  This was accomplished by either having a detached satellite dish that was either propped up by a tripod or connected to the roof of your RV.  Heck, you can even take your dish from home and connect it to your RV using an adapter that would allow you to use it when travelling.  Just make sure that if your dish is affixed to the top of the RV you make sure that it has been taken down or is under clearance level.  The last thing you want is to look in your rearview and see the dish laying in the street behind you.

What about if you would like to watch TV while you are in motion?  While this might have seemed like a pipe dream years ago, the technology has caught up and it is now available.  CampingWorld.com recently did a story on the different levels of service and had this to say about “The In-Motion RV Satellite”:

Do you want to watch TV while you’re on the road? With an in-motion RV satellite you can do just that. These systems can acquire a satellite signal even when you’re moving, so your family can enjoy their favorite TV programs while you’re on the way to your campsite and beyond. In addition, many of these systems offer dual hook-ups, so you can hook up more than one TV at once.

You want to look for an in-motion RV satellite that offers digital video broadcasting (DVB) signal acquisition for the fastest results, and one that is compatible with all the satellite networks, like DISH and DIRECTV. You also want an in-motion RV satellite that can use the standard satellite network receivers, so you don’t have to invest in another receiver when you buy your in-motion RV satellite.

How cool is that? So now instead of being forced to keep the family or children occupied with a variety of DVDs while in route to your destination, you can now have plethora of shows brought to you by the different satellite companies.  I don’t know about you, but the idea of having the NFL package in a moving RV is quite enticing.

What kind of TV system do you have in your RV and would you suggest it to other owners?  Leave a comment below and let us know!
