can watch TV while driving! Well, not you personally; after all,
someone has to drive the car. But your kids, family or friends can
now join you in your car or RV and enjoy TV programs.
But wait, there is more. If you're driving far away from your home,
you won't even have to change channels. The mobile satellite TV
makes it possible to watch your favorite TV channels, no matter
where you are or where you're driving to. The use of a mobile

that tracks a satellite and converts the satellite signal for TV viewing.
Prices for satellite TV antennas and mounts vary from $30 for a
simple tripod stand to more than $7,000 for a marine satellite TV
antenna/receiver with automatic tracking.
In addition to a satellite TV dish you'll also need a receiver to decode
the satellite TV signal and send it to your TV. Both DISH Network and

distractions can make children irritable. This is where the mobile
satellite TV comes into play.

and watch the TV at the same time. There are however road laws
which you will need to see about as some states will not allow driving
and TV viewing at the same time. This will not however matter if you
have made the TV screen to be placed where the passengers can
see the screen without causing you any driving distractions.
While having the ability to watch TV while you are traveling is a
wonderful invention, there are drawbacks. The main drawback is that

The different mobile TVs you can buy will all give you this great
advantage. At present you should expect that you will only be able
to see programs on your mobile satellite TV when you are driving on
country roads. For journeys that are far the hustle and bustle of city
life, a mobile satellite TV will keep your family entertained for hours.
Analysts project that by 2011, more than 3 million vehicles will be

satellite TV in a car or RV turn your vehicle into an extension of your
home. The amazing combination of the vacation vehicle and a
DIRECTV service is a great solution, keeping you and your family
entertained virtually anywhere you drive.
