Satellite TV service

I do alot of desert camping and the nights can be cool. There is no service for my TV (standard ant.) Thinking of a satellite dish. Can you get a "Pay" as you go type service and which dish works best with easy set up?

DISH is the only one who does(did) that.

get dish service at home and pay 7 bucks for a 2nd receiver to take with you in the rv. All you will need is a dish on a tripod and you can use your home service where ever. Put the extra receiver in a bedroom at home when youre not traveling.

People I've seen doing this are using an old style "standard" definition dish and receiver. Do they offer this in high def?

I have the pathway x2 antenna, fully automatic, high def, and gets both the western and eastern arcs. Combine that with a wallet and you have had programming for most channels. I have dish at home so after I bought the dish and the Wally, both of which can be had for about $450, I pay the $7/mo for the Wally which stays in the RV.

X3. Same setup, but we don't have dish at home

I have Direct TV at home. Is there any reason why I couldn't take one of my receivers with me? Do they make a portable antenna for Direct TV?

Yes, but the domes only receive Standard Def with Direct currently. You would need a tri-pod set up for HD.
