Dish network offers a pay as you go plan.  Month to month payments.  Whether your current antenna will work or not is a toss up.  If not one of the portable automatic domes will.

There is a very small chance you might be able to get a Canadian signal from your current satellite when in the US, depending on where you travel.  You might want to check with other Canadians who have traveled in the US to see if it is doable.

The signal from Bell into the USA is not available much below the 200 mile mark since changes were made to the satellite signal several years ago. The Bell equipment was compatible with Dish at one time but you do need a Dish receiver.

The signal from Shaw is available as far as  south Florida but for how much longer is the big unknown. Shaw equipment and Bell equipment are not compatible with each other. As an FYI, it is not legal per the service agreements to use the Canadian signals below the boarder but.....
