Their reasoning as to why they charge additional receiver fees is because it costs them money to send a signal to each additional receiver. They recuperate some of that by charging a receiver fee
I kind of see what your saying but don't like how you said it. It shouldn't cost them any more since its sent through the air and you only need 1 dish with a clear view of the southern sky.
Now maybe it has to do with all the licensing fees for decryption (NDS), Dolby, HDMI, and other software. The software field is where it's at. Software licensing and maintenance contracts are HUGE moneymakers.
