I live in a college town, and own a rental less than a block from my home. My son is college age, and the rental is about to become vacant . . . he is gonna move in.

I had DirecTV, but swithched recently to cable, because I wanted locals (not available in my zip).

I still have my antenna pointing up at a d* satellite.

If he were to get DirecTV service, does D* have a package that would alllow us to share (him getting one more receiver than he would need - giving me one to supplement my cable)?? Would it even work?? Would my receiver have to be hooked up to a phone line??

that is called account sharing and that is illegal. All receivers have to be at the same physical address

I probably didn't ask the question well - but I'm guessing the answer is still no . . . Does D* offer a package where one client (me - home owner and rental owner), knowingly allow service at two sites for a reduced cost??

instead of $X at one site . . . 2x$X - $10 for two sites, one customer??

no. If you have 2 locations, you need 2 subscriptions :)

Image "Mirroring"

Iceberg,

When I was in the military, I had my regular Directv service in the San Francisco bay area at my house. I was stationed at Barksdale AFB, La, and I was able to have my Directv service "mirrored" to my location in Shreveport, La.

If this particular individual has a secondary home, I would think she would be able to "mirror" Directv service legally.

nope. All receivers have to be at the same household per the agreement between the subscriber and Dish/Direct

but...do people do what is posted above? yes
is it legal? no

Here and there.
If you have another receiver, just hook it up at your sons place. As iceberg says, legal according to contract no, but who reads the fine print!:D
