No mire Hulu! Whatís. Next?

We got into a bit of a tussle with Hulu today. We are new Fulltimers. We had Hulu at home. They wonít let us change our location on a regular basis and they will not do anything to accommodate full time RVers. So we are looking for internet TV provider. Thinking about Sling or Direct TV now. Anyone have suggestions?

Well... depending on how much you travel, and where you go... I wouldn't depend on any service that requires a good internet and/or WiFi connection. You'll probably find the quality of service will not allow you to stream anything on a consistent basis.

That leaves satellite. Take your pick... Dish or DirecTV. I like DirectTV, but that's simply a personal preference.

I use direct tv but it's a bit of an issue to get local channels. IF I were going to start over, I would probably pick DISH because you can get the HD channels with a smaller dish.

Never had Direct, but can't complain about Dish. Use it with Traveler satellite. Press one button and it finds all three satellites. Every time I move, I simply call Dish (takes 5 minutes going thru the menu) and they change my location so I get local. Haven't tried it yet but supposedly their app will let you change your own location.

Yes, that was news to me until I contacted them because I was trying to use it in our Voltage. We are looking into Direct TV Now. We are staying in our current location until the end of the month and will change then.

That's just weird, I use it on my cell phone all over the place, though I guess I've never used it out of state. Learn something new every day ... I've learned my bit. Can I go home now?

Just guessing here, but Iím thinking itís probably like satellite tv... you may still have the service, but you lose the ability to receive local channels and the 3 major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) when you move out of their viewing area.

On my DirecTV service, I have to call tech support and have them change my service location nearly each time I move. If I donít, I still get the majority of channels in my package (ESPN, CNN, USA, TBS, etc...), but the local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, PBS, independent channels, and regional sports channels are blacked out.

It's a real pain having to call them. I use one of the receivers out of the house (pay an extra five a month for it) and when I was in Boone, I had the "S" beams dialed in but still could not get the locals. Don't have to change for the locals but ... by the way, their app sucks!

I've used Directv for several years with no major problems. We just had a bad electrical storm here and a genie went out, they were there the next day to replace it.


Also use the app quite a bit with no problems.
