We don't watch TV

At least not much. Occasionally we do tune in to Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!

However we do watch a lot of movies. When we settled the motorhome into the Kingston KOA last May, we signed up at http://www.zip.ca/

This is an online movie rental service available anywhere there is mail delivery in Canada. We find it so convenient! You make a list of movies you'd like to see from their 74,000 online titles.
Then, they mail you your DVD. They have different levels of service you can sign up for...we are on the "1 DVD at a time" plan, and for $12.38 (tax included) per month, we have averaged about 7 DVD's per month. This includes bonus DVD's that you get for "zip points", which themselves are fun to collect.

Given that you don't have to go anywhere to rent your DVD, and there are no late fees, we find this a fantastic service and really enjoy it.

They have a deal on where I can refer a friend and the new friend gets their first month for FREE. So if any of our Canadian readers want to sign up, just send me an email and I'll get you started. And yes, I get more "zip points" if you sign up. It's a win-win situation!

When we're taking the motorhome through the U.S., we like to use http://www.redbox.com/ . These are the red DVD vending machines in the lobby of the Walmart stores. This is really convenient, plus it only costs one dollar to rent a DVD for the evening. How cheap is that!

Also, whenever we're travelling with the motorhome, we have a supply of 15 or so DVD's which we've seen. This way, we can trade with other RV'ers while on the road.

For those of you who do watch TV in your motorhome, the Winegard company who make most of the TV antennas on the top of RV's have come out with an antenna add-on called "Wingman" that you should get if you plan on watching the new digital TV signals in the U.S...this is a simple installation, and fairly inexpensive. We sell quite a few of them at the RV place where I work in the parts department.
