A possible, less expensive alternative, if you are within range of a decent WiFi AP to which you have access, is Slingbox. (You can use it with cellular too if you like paying big data charges) Just hooked one up at home to my Direct TV. From my boat I can control the home Direct TV box from my iPad just as if I were there and either watch it on the iPad or stream it to my boat TV via Airplay. Real neat. Works with Android devices too.

If one is not within WiFi range then one must be in the wilderness. In such case I just sit back and enjoy the silence.
