Directv for your RV or Big Rig

By: David Johnson

If you own a recreational vehicle, or drive a big rig, you may have already thought of having satellite TV service installed in it but haven't done it because you might have thought it was too much trouble or that you may have trouble getting the equipment installed. You couldn't have been more wrong on both issues. Also you might have thought that you can only watch the programming when you have stopped and cant use it while you are moving down the road.

While you can?t use it while you are on the road, you can use the programming you have recorded while you are going down the road. Remember that you don't have to spend your time watching nothing while you are recording programming, because the top of the line Hughes satellite receivers that Directv uses exclusively, will record programming on one channel, while you are watching another. So it is so easy to record the programming you are going to watch later in the day, while you are watching programming that night.

What about mounting the antennae somewhere on your truck or RV? That is a decision you are going to have to make, because the dish has to be set up and taken down when you want to use it.

Some people opt for the tripod stand to use for their dish, because you don't have to attach it permanently to the vehicle its self and the dish can be stowed away when it is not in use. You can mount it on the roof if you choose to but you have to have access to the roof to set it up and take it down.

One problem with roof mounted dishes, is that they can be snagged by low hanging branches so you have to be aware of this problem when you are choosing a place to install it. If you have a boat and you spend alot of time in it at the dock, you might consider having satellite TV installed. You can use a tripod mounted dish and set it up on the dock when you are using it.

Remember that Directv also gives you free Sirius satellite radio with most of its programming packages, so not only will you have all the great Directv TV programming but you will also have all the fantastic radio programming to listen to and if you haven't tried the new technology in radio programming yet, then you are in for a big surprise when you do.

You can get all the best music channels and all the best in talk shows and comedy now on Sirius satellite radio. If you drive a truck, just think of all the money you will save when you are snug in your rig watching all the great programming that Directv has to offerArticle Submission, instead of out spending your money at all the places that there are to blow your hard earned cash at the stops that you make. Remember all the times you had to wait a day or two to drop off or to pick up a load? Now those waits will be just a little bit easier with Directv satellite programming to watch and record.
