Default Marine TV

So I have been doing wi fi TV through a Verizon Hot Spot. Works OK but pricey. I don't want a dome on my 400SS formula. Too much stuff on the Arch. The Tiny dome will not do the Caribbean anyhow. any thoughts? more bar time less TV time? Ha HA

I use AT&T, they give me 10gigs per month per device so that's a total of 40 gigs that I tether to my smart tv or computer. I have unlimited Plus plan.

Direct TV will get you TV on the boat when your in the slip , and you can dvr from that , and use a HD antenna . Then phone tetherer for real time premium channels when needed

Digital TV signal doesn't travel as far as the old analog but it takes very little to pick it up if your within range (60 miles). Can use a single wire connected to the antenna port, or connect a piece of coax and run it up behind something (no metal) and strip back the shield exposing the center conductor. Can leave the insulator jacket on the conductor
