it should be no cost to you( dish & wiring/installtion) i'm not sure what type of dish for hd they will supply. i would call directv ask about the dish and see if they will give some type of deal for a new receiver if needed.
I am moving in 2 - 3 months. I have been a Directv customer for 18 months. I currently have the 3lnb dish with 4 receivers(1-hd, 1-dvr, and 2 sd's). The house I have purchased has never been wired for cable. Will that be a problem if I go thru Directv's "moving dept"? I know that they will bring out a new dish and I'm supposed to bring my receivers with me. If they will only bring a 5lnb dish(since Chicago now has HD locals), I'll need a new hd receiver. Will I have to pay for it or can I trade in my old RCA DTC-210? Will I be charged an arm and a leg for all of the wiring they will have to do? Has anyone else gone thru a similar scenario lately? If so, what can I expect to happen. I'm tempted to close out my old account and establish a new one under my wife's name and a different credit card if necessary for all of the wiring.

Also, you say you've been with them for 18 months, and have an HD receiver and a DVR. Are you still within a two-year commitment period? If so, you may incur "early cancellation" fees if you cancel before your move. Something to be aware of if it applies in your situation.
