Dish Network - Pay-as-you-go RVSpace for electronics has always been a challenge in motorcoaches. One of the greatest space-saving inventions in recent years is the high-definition (HD) TV.  Just about all new motorcoaches have pre-installed HD TVs.  HD TVs not only have the best picture quality but also they save space compared to standard-definition TVs.  Even if you don’t have a new motorcoach, you should consider purchasing a new HD TV.  To enjoy high-definition programming on your HD TV, you need three items:  an HD mobile satellite antenna, a DISH Network HD satellite receiver, and DISH Network HD programming.  Only DISH Network’s HD programming is compatible with all HD mobile satellite antennas.  DIRECTV’s HD programming operates at a frequency called “Ka-band,” which isn’t compatible with the RV dome satellite antennas.

There are many choices when it comes to mobile satellite antennas. Some of the HD dome satellite antennas include Winegard’s RoadTrip® MiniMax™ and King Controls’ King-Dome®.  Both are professionally installed on top of your RV.  All you have to do is turn on the dome antenna, press a few buttons from inside your RV, and the antenna will automatically locate the satellites and you will be watching DISH Network HD TV.  I’ve personally used both of these wonderful products, and can say that they work seamlessly with the DISH Network ViP® 211k HD receiver.  Both products even have a premium version that allows in-motion viewing in your RV so you can watch TV even while you are on the road!   No one else offers in-motion HD programming.

Plus, DISH Network offers a Pay-as-you-go program that lets you simply pay for TV service for only the months you travel.  This program is great for RVers who only travel a few months a year and don’t want a year-long commitment.   Visit for more details.

    It IS annoying, isn’t it? I mean, I have already signed up…leave me alone! HA
    I know that every time I open the webpage, I’m going to have the JOIN menu pop-up. So I close the page, go back and click on the link again…voila, no annoying popup, it only loads the first time.

    tried to pause the “pay as you go” RV service from DISH network and the person at DISH told me i could not. I had to pay for six months at a time. after 10 minutes of difficult to understand conversation i could tell he ran out of script and asked to speak to A SUPERVISOR. The supervisor told me he could not pause the service but would shut it off. If i want to restart i must go through the activation and setup process again?? Direct TV here I come……

    So far I just got a new tv and had my Dish TV set up. I am happy having this kind of set up here at home.

    Obviously I like your website, but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome to inform you. Nevertheless I’ll definitely come again again!

    I was just looking for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.

    This is a good deal if your going to use Dish service for awhile. Cant beat the promotional price of $199.
