    When you move and change states, can you just change the zip code on your set up screen and adjust your dish accordingly so it can pick up the new spot beams and local channels or do I have to call Dish Network and then have them resend some kind of signal to my new location?

    You need to change your service address, you can call dish, use chat when signed onto your MyDish account site or PM a DIRT member on this site to do it. Changing your zip on the setup screen will only give you the dish settings needed to aim your dish.

    The Dish Movers program is pretty nice. Why not call them and have them put up a new Dish for you?

    Actually, unless you're already a Snowbird, you'll be required to have a tech out to install you when you move before Dish will change the address.

    Certainly not true. I've installed my own system at a few locations and never has Dish shown up to verify the address.

    Then you've had agents do the wrong thing. Dish requires a professional install. For one thing, there's no guarantee your equipment's gonna work on that old crap someone left behind. Yes, the rules have changed in 6 years.

    NOT TRUE, period. If you have an account now with Dish, you can install your own Dish, receiver, whatever at another address, simply call to change to that address while you are there.

    I think Dishmover is being confused, yes to actually use Dishmover Dish wants to do the install, but of course they would, that is what Dishmover is. You don't have to use Dishmover.

    You do have to use Dish mover, period.
    The only people who can move service without a mover are the RV/Snowbird users, everyone else HAS to use Dish mover according to Dish's ruls and regulations.

    If customers are not snowbird/RV users and are moving services without the Dish Mover promotion the agent who set up the address changes is literally breaking more rules then you can count on one hand.

    You are wrong, I can't say it any clearer. I did, my Father did it, I see posts all the time (in the other forum) of people who do EXACTLY that. They have a vacation home, install their own Dish, take their receiver with them. Call dish to make it legal, and to get the locals from that area. You do not have to use Dishmover unless you want Dish to pay for the install. The ONLY requirements Dish has is that all receivers be at the same residence so you are supposed to take all of them, and you must notify Dish when that equipment is at your vacation home.

    So now, show me that rule please in the customer agreement.

    "Physical Address/Change of Address. When setting up your DISH Network account, you must provide us with
    the physical address where your Equipment will be located and your Services will be provided. A post office box does
    not meet this requirement. You must give us immediate notice of any change of name, mailing address, telephone
    number, or physical address where your Equipment is located. You may do this by notifying our customer service center
    by telephone or in writing at the phone number, mailing address, or e-mail address set forth at the top of this Agreement

    Dish Mover is not, and never has been required to change addresses.

    And I'm saying it is not against the rules, you have yet to show us anything to contrary. I showed you more than anecdotal evidence, I showed you the passage that applies in the service agreement. Unless you can show me something in the agreement that says you must use dishmover you continue to be wrong.
    And while somewhat anecdotal, if it was really a policy I find it hard to believe that many people have done it with no problem.

    CSR's work for Dish, they are wrong all the time. So working for Dish does not indicate to me someone is correct. (Except DIRT members who are correct far more often than wrong) If there is some kind of poicy it certainly is not enforced, but in all these years well over 10 that I have been on the forms and have had Dish never have I seen a post or heard of anyone being forced to use Dishmover, unless they want the install for free.

    Misread.
    My posts are pertaining to customers moving to a permanent (or "near" permanent) new address (i.e. there not going back later).

    Again though CSR's are not to take every customer on there word for changing address unless its clear in the notes that changing happens from time to time so as to reduce the amount of customers who try to move services without getting charged for a tech fee (not everyone gets it free ;) ).

    Cant show you the line of text regarding it, I dont work there anymore and even then Im sure a DIRT member would get pissed and report the breach in NDA and get me fired (i.e. not every rule and regulation is meant for customers and there not all on the website :lol: )
