Using the Hopper / Joey in an RV or 2nd Home, Cabin, etc.
Posted 11 April 2012 - 04:19 PM
One option is to take your Hopper with you or you could request or purchase a 2nd Hopper to take with you or use in your RV or second home! This isn't a very affordable solution, but it's one option! Or, you could also check into the remote access solutions that let you watch things from your Hopper at home on your mobile device or on another computer with a good solid Internet connection!
We have been getting a lot of calls about this and many customers have already upgraded and didn't realize this, so I just thought you would like to know about this limitation, hopefully before "hopping" into the new technology!

And thus ends the discussion.
... avoid having to pay for a separate DISH Network account for your RV, cabin, shop, or second home, etc.!
DISH REQUIRES a separate account for second locations. Suggesting that people split the same account between two location is a violation of the agreement one signs when they get DISH.
DISH allows multiple accounts, one at each home, and allows accounts to be paused when not in use. DISH also allows customers to move between locations - One account with the address changed when the customer goes south for the winter. But one account in use in two locations at the same time? Not allowed.
Please do not encourage people to violate the provider's terms of service.
