I left Directv in Apr, bought newer larger home, wired for Fios. We have 5 bedrooms and a family room. My Fios for Internet is awful, I have the bundle. I want to separate my internet and tv..Telephone doesn't matter. In my smaller home, I had Cox internet and Directv, everything was wonderful...Not so any longer. My question, can I connect my 6 rooms( would like 7) to D*? Verizon wouldn't drill holes for unwired rooms, will D*? Thanks for any help or info

DIRECTV has already started installing wireless clients in some markets so it wouldn't matter if some of the rooms are wired or not.  I don't think drilling walls to install wire would be in the "free" installation but I think you could either pay the installer or pay an electrician to do it for you.

Of course drilling walls would be included in the free install, how else would the cables get into the rooms? The only thing that may require payment would be wall fishing those walls to run the cable.

Yup, a "house wrap" drilling from the outside to where the TV is, is included in the standard professional installation

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Just noticed there may be some slight confusion above..
 
Wireless clients:
Wireless clients are in some markets. Keep in mind there are additional equipment costs (ie: media bridge), as well as mixed reviews, so it's a good idea to search the forum for comments. Typically, most recommend a wired solution vs. wireless--even if wireless works well. The choice is yours.
 
Impressive first look of C41W--worth a watch.
 
Drilling walls:
If receiver is being installed in that room: free (aka included in standard professional installation)
If running lines only (not installing receiver): $49/room (some request this for future use--the choice is yours)
 
Wall Fish:
Typically $49/room
 
Hope this helps!
