Almost a surety that if you tune to one of your local channels you will get a message on the screen that it is not available in areas outside your local viewing area. I cannot get very far away from home without losing them. If you want to see the networks prime time offerings, you will likely need an OTA antenna or cable hookup. My experience with both is that they can be “iffy.” Depends on (shall I say) the quality of the campground you choose.
I was a DirecTV customer for 20 years, but recently switched to Dish for primarily customer service reasons (IMHO, AT&T is the biggest problem with DirecTV). Both companies have some weird quirks, but I have found I like Dish better, as does my spouse who watches way more television than I do. Never had the DirecTV anywhere app, but I do have the Dish Anywhere app. As a previous post states, the app does not restrict local channel viewing location as the internet is not directionally beamed!
