Satellite TV Qs

We've been thinking about purchasing a reciever and portable dish for our TT. We use Dishnetwork at home and they offer a "tailgatter" pckg. I haven't checked prices on this yet, but here's my questions:

Why couldn't I take one of my existing recievers at home and use it on the road. How would Dish know where I'm using it?

Here's another thought, just purchase one of the smaller receivers, register it at home ($7 pr month charge to add rcvr to existing accnt) like I'm using it in my shop then take it on the road?

Any thoughts out there????

Thanks!!

KC

I have been using a receiver from my house for several years. I recently had a problem with my signal. I called direct tv, told them what I was doing and they didn't seem to have a problem with it. They told me what receivers were compatible with winegard carry out, I thanked them and that was it.

The following receiver models can be used with the Tailgater if activated on your home account: ViPģ 211k, ViP 211 and 411.

We have the 211k with our Tailgater and all the HD channels makes for great viewing.

As long as your paying for service on receiver it doesn't matter where you use.

I just retired in mid 2012 and had dishnet put in at the house. I bring a receiver with me when we go camping (and we do a lot of it now) If we are camping out of our local channel area, we call dish to tell them the zip code we're at. They then switch my receiver to catch those local channels where we are staying. Dish even has a RV department to help you. I don't know about direct tv. Hope this helps. Love my dish
