Could they see your IP address, sure.
Will they ? No clue.

When ever people ask about recvrs off premise, I always remind them, No land line plugged in, No internet into the recvr.
Either of these and D* may be able to find you.

Suppose to be getting VOD without the need of Internet connection in the near future.

No. So far, it is totally based on your service address. IP has nothing to do with it. Besides, with proxies and corp accounts (tunneling), it would be hard for D* to enforce service based on IP ranges.
