I know many people do this. Sign up with Dish Network, get four receivers, install them in four different houses, and then split the bill four ways. Me and three of my friends are thinking of doing that do. I assume Dish Network doesn't encourage this, and that is why I am wondering what they can do to prevent us from doing it. I have heard that eventually Dish Network is going to have each receiver tied to a phone line and use a caller ID to make sure that all receivers are used from the same phone line. How soon do you think this is going to happen? Also, which receivers do you sugget the customer and his three friends should get to have all this work?
