Question re: Dish Network at vacation home
If I have Dish Network at my house, can I set up a Dish at my vacation home, bring the receivers when I go there and hook it up and still keep 1 account? I understand the part about spotbeaming, etc, but aside from that does Dish care as long as I use only 1 receiver and watch at one place at a time? Thanks.

If you take them with you then fine, if you leave 1 receiver there then no.
Technically you can do it... Does DISH care? That's a hard one. It probably violates the Terms of Service since they equipment must be located at the primary residence. But then again, they allow the equipment from the home to move to an RV for occasional use, so I don't see how it would be a problem...

Thanks. I did not think of the phone # part so I will bring just the 211 (but I won't leave it there). It's pretty tiny so it shouldn't be a big deal if I am driving.
