Satellite TV Month to Month


New Member
I heard from a camp host that SOMEONE they ran into once who was charged only one month at time. They couldn't remember who the company was, so am looking for some imput from one of you. Apparently, you call in and ask them to activate, they bill you for the month only. Sounds great for those not full-timing, but have
to find out if there actually IS a company that does this.

I doubt it, but can't be sure. So far as I know there are only two companies that provide satellite TV, Dish Net and Direct TV. I suggest that you contact each of them to see what they say. I am sure that there is a minimum time for the contract when you start and there would very likely be an extra charge each time you turn it on and then off.

I think that a better way for a part-timer is to get dish TV at home and then take a receiver on the road as well as a dish. That is what most users do and it works very well.

RE: Satellite TV Month to Month

Since you are in the full timers forum, I assume you are in your RV much of the year. We use direct TV and have the distant channel options so we can get west coast and east coast network feeds anywhere we travel. We can put the service on hold for months at a time with no charge and activate it when you use the RV again. It can be off for more than 50% of the time and you only pay for the months you use.
