Are VIP receivers still being installed and activated for new customers?
Can VIP 211s still be activated?
I don't know about 211's because we haven't seen any in a long, long time but 211K's or 211Z's can be activated on an existing VIP or Hopper account as long as there's no Wally's on the account.
Also, you should be able to use them on a Pay-as-you-Go system (what we're using for our vacation home). We have our old ViP 211 & 211k receivers running the Flex Pack since May.
Why no Wally’s on account with 211K?
I don't know other than that's the rule.
Probably because the user interfaces are different. It might confuse the user having two different ways of doing things....
Yeah, it's considered different receiver model families
I think it might be deeper than that. The 211 uses the old interface while the Wally uses the CUI. More than just the interface they are two different operating systems. Think Windows and Mac...
I don't agree with the interface reason because aren't 211s allowed with Hoppers as long as they're owned?
Yes they are.
While they are allowed the main purpose is as an RV or tailgate receiver.
Right. But their terminology for that is what I said in that post.
As “touched on” before: It’s a different software set. They what to phase out old ViP software. Cheaper that way.
Time marches on.

Which receivers are being installed these days?
Hoppers and Wallys, primarily,
What Hopper models are being installed these days?
All of them. But the Hopper 1 seems to be for bad credit customers.

And Hooper Duos are out of stock in most of the country
