weeksea,

Welcome to the Forum. I think Winegard's Dish Satellite is also compatible with Bell and Shaw.  That would be the  Winegard Dish 1000 Trav'ler The Winegard Trav'ler for Direct is only compatible with Direct. To the best of my knowledge.

I saw Dish in Alaska but not Direct tv. WE have direct and had problem with mountains and trees. Some in our group had dish and worked better. Sat receivers in Alaska looked like they were pointed at the ground. Did not have much time for tv.

We went to Alaska last summer, we have a Travl'r and Dish. We got one satellite, 119, everyplace we were unless trees or mountains were in the way. People in our group with with Directv lost all signal in lower Canada. I switched our locals to Anchorage
