The first question is -- what do you want to watch on TV? Local stations? National cable channels? Streaming services?

Many watch no TV at all.

We watch Blurays or DVD's when we want something to watch, we removed the antenna long ago so can't watch over the air TV.

For us, 1st choice is over the air (OTA). Second is usually wifi, Vudu, Youtube etc.

We do carry a phone set up as a wifi hotspot with us and we have both ATT and Verizon as hotpot choices.

OTA when there is reception.. Not much of that where we usually go, so then it's DVD/BlueRay player with what we brought with us for that trip.. Will do some streaming if can get cell signal, but keep it limited due to data limits..

We really only do the "TV" stuff after dark or if the weather takes us back in the RV.. If it's nice out, that's where we are! [emoticon]

Good luck! Mitch

I use a Over The Air antenna. I watch very little TV when I'm camping anyway. I'm out and camping why would I want to watch TV ? I click it on in the morning during breakfast and watch the news. That's about it.

That being said. I do keep a few DVD's in the camper or rainy times and such. I also keep a couple of kids DVD's in there for times when the kids are suck inside.

I also read books and listen to the radio in the rainy times. The DVD's are mostly for the girlfriend, somebody's kids, and company.

I've digitized all of our media, and not only keep a media server running at the house, but also carry a hard drive duplicating the server. For live TV, it's either watched live, or downloaded. i have unlimited cell wifi on the road and at the house.

our tv is on a lift in the credensa by the back window. Our grandkids camped with us for 4 years before they knew we had a TV. In the last 10 years camping 8-10wks /year we maybe use the TV a few nights each year, when the weather is bad, done with card games, no fire outside.

Rarely. [emoticon]
Usually DVDs. The rest of the time OTA. We don't have satellite.

When I was full time in my TT I watched TV and movies plus DVDs on my large screen laptop. Was perfect for me and did not take up space. I still do this when part time camping fishing trips. Happy Camper
