Dish pay as you go

Hey all question here, is anyone using the (Dish pay as you go) I seen a ad in the good Sam mag. And I am curious about it, has anyone tried it (good or bad) and is it worth it, how does it work. I could call dish, but any one that has ever talked to dish or direct tv knows how that goes I will here every single option they have and how I can set up the whole house but that's not what I'm looking for. So I figured that I would go straight to the source, the ones that have to pay for it and complain when it doesn't work. So if anyone has some input let me know like I said before (the good,the bad and the UGLY).

Thanks,

Tnchuck100, I think I know where you are going here and to answer your question is no I do not. I have ATT Uverse and unfortunately I can not take it with me when we go to the lake. I have had direct tv in the past and if i still had it I would grab the dish and receiver and throw it in the trailer when we go do our thang, but at this moment in time momma is happy with uverse (at times I don't know why) but that is another conversation. So I thought well I would try the next best thing and try this rent as you go but after I posted this last night I did a little digging around and found that you have to pay for thirty days at a time. And at this time in my life as much as I wish, I still have about 20 years to go before I get to retire and actually get to spend thirty days at a time at the lake So if that is the case I will just wait till my wife's soaps don't record one day and she has had it with uverse and switch back to dish or direct tv.

Thanks for the reply.

Do you have a smart phone or a laptop? Would you be able to get wifi or a cell signal where you camp? If yes, then you can get your TV wherever you camp. I do it all the time.

Yep! It's awesome.

It only cost me about $150 a few years ago and now I can watch and control my home TV from ANY internet connection. The quality of the picture is dependent on how fast your home connection is and how good the wifi or cell service is at your campground. Also, some fast moving scenes such as a hockey game or something can cause the screen to get a bit pixelated, but it's no biggie as long as you have good service.

Have not thought about the slingbox, have seen it in the stores but to be honest was not for sure what it did. I do have a air card, so from the post that I have read I assume that it gives you the ability to view your system at the house from a remote location?. Am I understanding that right and if so I might just have to look into this option.

Thanks again all for the feed back

Yes. You control and watch your home tv from just about any Internet connection. I watch from a laptop, an iPhone, an iPad and more. You can watch on the iPhones and iPads and you also have the ability to hook these up to your television so you can watch on a bigger screen. You can also hook a laptop to a big tv too.

You can even use dvr features. Watching your slingbox at a CG is like watching in your living room. There is no fee to use it.
