Is this for the RV setup you were asking about in another thread?

The flat dishes will become more cost effective over time - the beam steering capability is computational so it benefits from the advances in that area. The problem with Directv is that the computation becomes a lot more complicated since they've got three satellite locations in close proximity and use multiple frequencies.

Despite that, I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see someone offer a simple flat panel that can be integrated into an RV's roof in the next few years that does 99/101/103 and handles HD. It won't be cheap, but I guess it only has to come within 2x of the in-motion dishes in price since it would be far less bulky, have no moving parts, and handle Directv's HD which the in-motion dishes for RV available today do not.
