You forgot to ask if it was legal to lie about your address.

No need to dare I already did it and it works. They were going to install a dish for me but I told 'em I already moved my dish and had it all hooked up.

Just a reminder that this "move" will also affect your sports network and teams availability. In other words your sports black-outs will be based on where you "live" now.

For the life of me I will never understand why people will pay hundreds and thousands of dollars on a TV that provides the clearest, sharpest, most realistic picture possible and then, voluntarily, distort the image!

This whole idea will prove interesting with the leasing setup. Once DTV has to pay local property taxes for their equipment based on where it's located they will have to clamp down tightly on the true location.
