I have a houseboat at a marina on a rural lake. It stays tied up to the dock most of the time where we plug into electricity and TV cable. The marina might be dropping TV cable so I am looking for some alternatives. We have WIFI but the capacity is so small it usually goes tits up on weekends. The lake is about 5 miles out of town so getting cable from the local city isn't going to happen. Current cable service provided is supplied by Dish then boosted around the marina by cable. We still have an option for landline telephone service to each dock.
I had dishnetwork years ago and it worked ok. So, is an 18" dish the only option still for TV? The lake is too far down a valley for antenna reception.
