I have two 322 receivers.  Are they still required to be connected to a phone line to avoid paying extra, or did Dish stop doing that?  Thanks.

To be clear...  they don't charge for lack of a phone line... but you are still supposed to be connected via phone line OR broadband...  If you only have 1 or 2 receivers you might be fine... but more than that and you can expect calls from the audit department wanting to know why they aren't connected.
