    Is it possible to be able to watch a live sporting event in your car driving?

    I'm so far behind the times with tech it's embarrassing. I was given a new large van all done up from my grandfather. He has put in a 48" for movies. Is it possible to, in some way to get live tv in my van?

    It would be nice for road trips

    It's possible to get a satellite dish (directv or dishnetwork if youre in the U.S.) mounted on your vehicle that is capable of automatically tracking and locking onto a satellite as you're driving, but those are like 1-2 thousand dollars i think, maybe u can get one used off craigslist or ebay for cheaper.
    The dishes that will lock onto a satellite when you're stationary are cheaper, maybe 4-500 dollars. Those wont get you TV while you're driving, but they will point themselves when you're stationary, so you dont have to bother going up there and manually point it yourself.
    Most of these 'dishes' I think look just like domes, or metal spheres, not an actual dish.
    Otherwise, there are TV apps for smartphones that you can stream tv on your phone if you have the service (comcast/xfinity, att, directv, time warner cable, etc). If you have unlimited data it might be ok to stream tv on your phone, assuming there's not a cap on video streaming on your phone, but if you cast it to your tv on a chromecast or apple tv or roku, etc, then that may be subject to a data cap: 10-20 gigs a month, depending on your cell phone company, but that will only provide a few hours of tv watching if it's high def video...
    If you have some sort of tivo recording device with satellite tv service, maybe you can record a lot of programming when you're stationary, and watch it when you're on the road.

      It’s possible but is it smart?

      I was driving down some road in Phoenix, on a business trip, and some dudes pulled up next to me at the stoplight. They had a screen on the back of both front headrests, the dash & the steering wheel. All playing porn...

      Distracting to say the least!

        The driver watching tv is definitely not a good idea, but he said there's a 48inch tv in the van, so i doubt it's in the front...
        Besides movies and tv, it'd be a great setup for video games.

          Tune into the radio, like we did long ago. Amazing what your brain portrays 'hearing it' instead of 'visualizing'.
          Too many distracted drivers with texting, on phones...why go there? There's always replays/highlights on You Tube to watch if it's that important. Be safe, defensive driver.

              Heck yeah, you can stream while mobile. This is the 21st century dude. LOL

              It's funny, my buddy designed the mobile antenna for DirecTV after we got busted by them. LOL However, all that was pretty much outdated by mobile streaming.

              All you need to do is get a cable that goes from the HDMI port in your smart phone to the back of the TV (hopefully, the TV has an HDMI input).

              That's it. You're streaming. Use Youtube or IPTV or YouPorn (if you want the distraction as noted above) LMAO

              Whatever you can stream on your phone (which is everything), you can feed to that TV.

              Pretty simple stuff.

              Please be understanding if I act a tiny bit unusual at times. Thank you.

                even if you dont want to have sat coverage, you could hook up a dvd player or game console to it and play movies/ games like that

                    TY
                    It all comes down watching NFL, MLB, NHL.
                    live. I might actually renovate it and rent it out if I'm not using it.
                    I might hook the mobile dish. $2,000? around.
                    Will this be somewhat fool proof?
                    What would stop it from working?
                    Is it hard to install? Any recommendations on where to buy it?

                      I forgot about the mini hdmi cables, this is a really good point. Maybe Im going to have to try this out, some of my streaming apps disable casting to a tv via chromecast/apple tv...

                      I'm not too much of a gamer, Pop, but i figure if youre just trying to occupy time while in the car, you can waste a lot of hours on video games...
