question about moving in stages..
I'll be moving soon, halfway across the country. the rest of my family won't follow me for several weeks, or maybe months. I've been a Dish customer for almost 10 years and don't want to lose that account. But I also need to get something at the new address.
I suppose I could buy a 2nd receiver and place at new address (no locals as I'd be out of the spot beam) but I'd need a 2nd dish to go with it and I am not good at installing those things.
Anyone have any ideas?

You will need to have two accounts (one for each address) if you want service at both locations.

You are better off signing up for a new account at your new address and take advantage of all the new customer promotions.

Or you can purchase cards for limited service until your family moves to your new place.

I just recently did this. Dish came out on Sunday to install my dishes. I told the installer all he had to do was get the connections in four rooms "hot" and thats what he did. I had an old receiver with me that we checked out each location just o make sure it was working. Two weeks later when I finally did move, I just took all of my receivers and plugged them in.
Now, since youre moving across the country, the receivers you leave at the old house will probably lose locals as they turn on your new locals as soon as you move service. Those receivers will also have the time/time zone settings for your new address. This wasnt an issue for me as I was just moving across town.
I completely understand not wanting to close an account that you have had open for 10 years. Dish takes care of long-time customers.
