Camping RV help please!! SD channels ending?!
I’ve read rumors online that DirecTV announced they would cease carrying all SD channels in 2019 (8 months away). My family has an RV that is constantly used for camping trips all over. My family has DirecTV at home and wants DirecTV in the RV. They do not really care if it is in SD as long as they can watch. The Winegard TRAV’LER (for RV’s) is over 50 pounds, has to be professionally installed, and it costs over $1,500. They would much prefer to use a product by King Connect called the Quest Pro. The Quest Pro is $550, so it’s much cheaper, it’s extremely lightweight, does not require professional installation, and it automatically aligns the dish wherever you set it. However, the Quest Pro can only receive signals from the 101° satellite and it states you only get SD channels. What is our best option? Is it true that products for RV’s like the Quest Pro that only get SD channels will stop working in 8 months? What are we supposed to do to get DirecTV in the RV? The DirecTV app is not a viable option, because cell phone reception at several of these campgrounds is very limited at times. Thanks.
