When it comes to watching TV and movies on the road, how do you most often watch?


Okay, let’s see how old school you are! Kidding … well, sort of. When you watch a movie or a TV show in your RV, how do you most often do it?

Do you have a collection of DVDs that you bring with you on your travels? Or do you have a TV antenna on your RV to pick up whatever you can? Or do you stream your TV shows and movies on platforms such as Netflix? Maybe you don’t or hardly ever watch anything at all!

Tell us in the poll below, and please be patient if it takes a moment to load. Thank you!

We are seasonal and the campground has cable! So nothing has changed since we sold the house!

An antenna works for me in the motorhome and at my sticks and bricks. I also have a 12 volt VCR but have never used it.

None of the above. We use the campground cable, or the Dish, or OTA or no TV and just read. We have rarely streamed anything, but now with StarLink, I am streaming a little.

We use our Directv satellite dish.

I picked “streaming” but it’s actually “all of the above”. We watch movies on DVD, football games and NASCAR via over the air TV (or streaming if we can’t get over the air.) If I were camping by myself, I wouldn’t watch any of it at all.

None of the above. Sat dish w/DVR. We watch nothing live. Record NASCAR/INDYCAR/F1, golf, even the Super Bowl (if we watch), a few news programs. That is all. We watch after the day sightseeing/attending events/shopping/running errands. Or if raining/storming. Use the fast forward a lot. As of now we will not connect to the internet to watch TV or stream anything.

I download video onto USB thumb drives at home from YouTube and then play it through the trailer’s media center.

It depends, cable if the park has it, OTA if it comes in, DVDs if not, or a good book if nothing comes in! All good after a wonderful walk and watching the sunset!

I will say my answer is a real mix. For the most part we stream but I will do over the air or even cable if in a campground that has it. Haven’t used a DVD for years and didn’t even want a satellite dish. Sales people think we’re nuts when I say we don’t want satellite.

OTA, and streaming. About 50/50.

We have over the air at home, when it works. Digital signal TV is terrible. Never figured out how to operate the VCR and then got a DVD and gave up on it too. No TV or video stuff when on the road.

Why wasn’t satellite a choice?

OTA antenna if we can get a signal, Dish (with the external DVR drive full of movies and shows), streaming via Roku, screen-sharing from my phone and finally, a hard drive full of movies so I can stream from my laptop. I got it covered six ways to midnight.

I guess we don’t go RVing, we go camping. No TV at all, even though we do have one in our travel trailer. But we don’t watch much TV at home either.

You left out an option for tv from satellite dish, local channels from antenna, and streaming. We have all three.
