I am thinking of breaking down and getting satellite tv for the TT. Which has the better pay as you go Dish or Direct TV? Any preference on satellite dishes? My brother mentioned the cube since it is automatic. Not sure I want to pay that much, but I don't want to spend an hour setting up tv reception either.

Does anyone know where we could have Dish installed instead of doing it ourselves? I just read all the posts about satellite dishes for RVs and which ones were preferred. Since we store our RV for 6 months we would rather go with a pay as you go plan. All of these posts were from 2012, just curious if anything new has come on the market since then to make it an easier process to hook up a satellite? Also who sells the Cube, and is it easy to install?
Thank you!

We looked into the Cube about a year ago but decided it was not for us. I think you can get them from Amazon.com. Then a few months ago we looked into the Tailgator system which is supposed to be specifically for RVers from the Dish Network. We got most of our information by calling an 800 number we found somewhere, probably from one of their advertisements. We also checked with our local Camping World which seemed pretty knowledgeable and with a local Dish retailer but they had not even heard of the RVing program . We did not purchase it either. I think one of your best bets is to search on line and then call any customer service numbers that are listed. As for installation, many RV service centers are able to do that sort of thing, but get comparisons. The costs can vary greatly.
