Since the question is which sat provider, then going to Netflix or any other streaming service doesn't answer the question. Being off grid while boondocking forces a sat solution for any live programming.

The cheapest and easiest thing is if you already have sat service for the home, add another box and use it in the bus while travelling. You could also just unplug one of the house receivers and use it without making any changes. That is my plan when I decide need live TV. It won't anything as there is an extra 3 LNB dish on the roof. Put on a tripod and away you go.

If you want new service, check with them both. I know Dish as some sort of RV program but if it is your only receiver then not much of a break on the service charge. Technology - toss a coin.

We had a TT membership in the US and a similar one in Canada.  Its a a reasonably economical way to buy space in full hookup spots if you are fulltiming.  The parks in TT's system were conveniently located for where we wanted to travel and the numbers worked.  If that hadn't been true we wouldn't have bought in.  And we didn't really "buy in" - we paid to have someone's membership transferred into our name.  There's no free lunch - the membership parks likely cost us about 60% of what showing up at the gate and paying as we went would have cost. So you need to do the math to see if it works in your particular situation.

I solved the stink problem and quieted some of the sound  by putting a stack on the exhaust . now the stink goes up above the roof but yes it makes noise out side when running but nice and warm inside

Bruce my Webasto does it all ,pre heat engine and yes the heat from the engine will keep you warm when driving saving you 2 heat sources but when it's really cold out I have found that if you use both systems ( engine , Webasto )  there is lots of heat and as of yet no large repair bills
because I store the coach in the garage I have a magnetic cat electric heater to pre heat the engine when its cold rather then run the diesel boiler inside the garage

I had a pro heat diesel system on the M C I and it did the same thing

I had the Primus (propane fired) system in a Eagle I liked it much better than the diesel fired  Webasto (Aqua/Hot) had all the functions like demand hot water and engine warming.Used less propane than the Aqua Hot used in diesel.The Primus was so quite,didn't smoke or stink either and very little maintenance in the 10 years I owned it.LOL Webasto's sound like helicopters at 3 am

I have an opportunity to obtain a gallon of synthetic oil for free  Tongue (sealed container) and was wondering if it was safe to add this to an engine that contains regular straight 30Wt. Yeah, I use 30 and not the favored 40 because I'm always in a cold climate. Maybe one of these days that'll change. At any rate, this is 30W too.
Thanks in advance for knowledgeable answers.
