just out of curiosity, why do you need four names, four addresses and four different credit cards for (presumably)four receivers at your home???this doesn't make sense to me...:shrug:

It makes perfect sence if you are getting the receivers for free in a pack for new customers that comes with a dish. The 18inch dish is useless to me cause I need the oval one for my locals. And we cant put 2 dishes on the house cause that is "ugly".

I guess that all of us, at one time or another, would like to get something for nothing. But, frankly, it appears to me as if you are being just a tad unreasonable. Apparently, you are willing to engage in some tactics that are, at best, unethical, in an attempt to get free equipment. If you try to "put one over" on a retailer or DirecTV, it will eventually reach up and bite you. Several people on this forum have given you reasonable and inexpensive solutions to your' circumstance but you seem to be ignoring all of them in your' quest for "freebies".

OK I found and E-bay store that sells the dish and receiver for 4.99 upwards. Now do I have to have the dish installed or no? I already have a dish.
