Hello , thanks for the request , was out when you sent it in

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

There might be alternatives but that depends much on what you have available right now , for example how are you contacting me right now , do you have internet access ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Is your camper on the same lot as the house being built ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have internet service, I am contacting you through my personal hot spot on my iphone. Yes the camper is on the same site
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Im sorry we Dont have internet service
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then what I was thinking was to get a subscription with web sites like Netflix for example and connect the pc to the tv for movies and whatever shows these uys have but there might be something else

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

AS you are on the lot where the house is being built , I cannot see why the cable company could not give you a temporary feed then move that to the house when ready , did you contact them ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The only thing with that is that streaming uses so much of my data plan which is only 10G
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Yes I was going to say exactly that it could get to be expensive through a phone system .

Again that leaves the cable company with either the wired internet or better yet the whole cable system , in any case they will have to run a feed to your new house

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Other than internet or cable system you have only the antenna which you are already using and then renting dvd`s ??

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Would not take much for the cable company to stretch a temporary cable feed to your camper

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

May cost a bit extra on the original install but would be cheaper than streaming movies

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i have checked with cable to connect and they said they cant connect anything, until we have our house built
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Not much of a service do they ?
The next best thing then may be to consider satellite tv , they will hookup an outhouse if asked :)

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

dish or direct tv will set you up and you could even stay with them when moving into the house

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is there anything I can do to boost the antenna i have on my camper
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
in your opinion which has the best reception and internet
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Depends on the antenna you have really as those "boosters " may help in some case but not really and the real solution for more channels that are on the fringe for example would be a larger directional antenna and again depending on what you have available in your area it may not help ,may end up costing a fair bit as we ae now talking about a whole new setup and this would be temporary , sorry but not much can be done on that side unless you are ready to go for the whole package of rotors, directional antenna , tower , amplifiers etc.

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Best reception ?
Do you mean satellite company for example ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i was wondering in you opinion, which dish service has the best reception and internet.
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then a bit difficult to compare as they are competition to each other and have a host of packages but it seems that direct tv has the better service from what I gather so far

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

For the internet you are better off with a local provider through the phone land line,optical or cable system though
