    I have been splitting my directv service up with a few friends in san diego for years now. Its great we split the bill and NFL sunday ticket. I recently moved up to eastern washington state and now my local channels are still the San Diego local channels. This would be fine but they don't come in, and when football season starts I don't want to miss any game that is only being broadcast locally. How do I get around this? Is there a way to have two service address on the account, like an address for home and an address for a 'vacation' home so that each would work with the local channels for that specific area at the same time? Since I do not have the account, it is difficult for me to call directv and ask these questions of them. Let me know if anybody else has come across this problem and how to solve it.

    Portland,...
    What you are doing is against Directv's terms of service and could land you in a lot of hot water. Sign up with your own account.

    I hate to tell you this, but I believe what you are explaining goes against the customer agreement. So if you call and ask that question, you and your friend may get your service disconnected.

    No. You each need to get your own accounts and your own service.

    Since the question has been asked and the terms of services reminded, I'll just close this thread. "Moving" or account splitting are not topics for discussion at DBStalk.

    Cheers,
    Tom
