Another option is either Direct or Dish for the home, and then Sling'ing (Like a Slingbox 500) your shows via broadband connection while traveling.


This assumes you have a broadband data connection that as your traveling, and that is not always the case:)! (Streaming in 480 will use quite a bit less data then HD or even now  a days 4K. 


We know one couple that do this with Direct. They have ULD via Verizon, and usually stay in places where 4G and or LTE are available. For times that they don't have the bandwidth. They carry two or three DVD's of programs that they want to watch multiple seasons of. (We passed on the first 5 years of Downton Abbey to them.). 


Best to you both,

We use a Winegard Trav'ler for our HD DIRECTV. The big deal for me is the NFL package. I get to see MY team play every time. Otherwise there is probably very little difference between the two.
