Download your favorite movies ( or TV shows) from Netflix to an iPad, either watch on the iPad or stream to larger screen.

I have a 12V Akai TV I picked up from The Warehouse that works well and cost a lot less than similar models from the RV shops. Built-in DVD player which gets used quite a bit, and both VGA and HDMI inputs to use with a laptop.

 

I see The Warehouse currently has a 19.5" Veon with DVD for $179, and I think it runs on a 12V external power adaptor too. Could be a nice cheap option.

Have had a Veon for 2yrs and then put DVD in back to front which was a bigger mistake than I thought it would be. Had to strip apart and parts left over so DVD kaput now. Interestingly the bare steel chassis etc had no rust and as good as new.

Yeah my experience with those round freeview aerials up on the mast is not positive. I have a pacific aerials 12v amplified one, boat is moored right opposite sky tower in northcote, and I regularly have trouble with reception (tv3 particularly). That's in the middle of Auckland, so can only get worse from there...usb dongle would be even more rubbish.
