Satellite TV for Long Haul Big Rigs : Dish Network Mobile Dish

By: David Johnson

Up until now satellite TV programming was simply out of thequestion for big rig drivers for a number of reasons, so it really wassomething that RV owners installed in their vehicles. To start with a big rigjust couldn’t have something as big as a satellite dish on the roof of theircab unless it was aerodynamic which a satellite dish is far from being.

?Secondly the lastthing that a driver needs when he pulls in for an over night stop is one morething on the truck to hassle with and a satellite dish has to be set up andthen taken back down and in bad weather it s real job. Thirdly a big dishsitting up on the roof of a cab is just a snag waiting for a place to happenand the last thing a driver needs is the roof of his cab tore open miles andmiles from home in rainy weather.

?If there is anyonethat craves great entertainment though it is the long haul truck driver andthat is why they will tolerate the uncomfortable seats in the TV lounges attruck stops just to watch some good satellite TV programming. Now with MobileDish from Dish Network satellite TV programming is available for big rigs andthere is no satellite dish required at all.

?Mobile Dish uses astate of the art low profile and streamlined antenna that hugs the roof of thevehicle to receive the Dish Network programming. This new antenna also neverhas to be touched again after it is installed, so it works just like any otherantenna works and it gets perfect reception every time.

?There are currentlyone-hundred channels available with the Mobile Dish system with more planned onbeing added in the near future. There are no snags catches or hassles withMobile Dish and it works just like the satellite TV programming that isreceived in a home. You simply pick up the TV remote and point and shoot andit’s just that simple.

?The really greatthing about Mobile Dish from Dish Network is that it receives perfect satelliteTV programming while the rig is rolling down the open highway and that’sanywhere in the continental U.S. For team drivers this means that while one manis driving the other can be relaxing in the sleeper watching great satellite TVprogramming, so he can be relaxed, alert and fresh when it’s his turn to takeover behind the wheel.

?Mobile Dish also hasa great weather channel that you can refer to this winter and with a weatherchannel on a TV screen you can actually see the satellite pictures of theweather you are going to be encountering. Also, you will be able to see thenews pictures of backed up traffic if there is any and any snow fall on theroads. This can be a real money saver, because when a driver is on the road,time is money and every decision regarding delays has repercussions that arefelt in the wallet. If you are a long haul driver then Mobile Dish is definatlysomething worth looking into.
