I have completed my first two years with Directv.  If I take advantage of the Movers special and have them install a dish at my new location does this extent the 2 year commitment?  I am not getting any new equipment or services.

This is a portion of the Offer Details (found at the bottom of http://www.directv.com/move)

 

Offer requires a program agreement of 12 months of any DIRECTV base programming package (priced at $29.99/mo. or above), or any international service bundle.

 

There is a 24-month commitment listed for MRV DVR Upgrade.  But read the Offer details.

The move requires a 12 month agreement.  If you upgrade advanced equipment when you move, it's 24 months.

Hmm, weird since the the customer agreement link is not mandatory on my HH when doing movers…

I am pretty sure that is NOT true.  There is no new commitment for the movers program.  If I remember right, you can only use the movers program once a year but there is no commitment for it though.

Awesome.  Do you have a link to where that is located at on DirecTV's site?

Now I assume this is because you are getting it for free.  So if you pay to have it moved I assumed there would be no commitment.

I guess so.  You could pay someone locally to setup a new dish but if you have a big setup like me 6 DVR's, HR34, SWM16 switch, it would not be worth it.  The switch alone would be a lot.

It changed to having a 12 months agreement around 10-12 months ago(partial guess work here as the past year has flown by for me).  Originally it did not have an agreement unless an equipment upgrade was part of the order.
