perhaps to make it easier for the new person to subscribe to Directv, or to prevent possible lawsuits from people who fall trying to retrieve the dish off the roof. Another likely reason is by giving you a $50 dish, they can hook you for one more year of service commitment. :shrug:

I think the main idea is that the person that moves in afterwards will see the dish and think, "hmm I could go satellite here and half the work is done after all there is a dish there). For the $50 they risk on the dish they get a good chance at a new customer.

All you need to do in the new home is pick up and activate the receivers. Worth the cost to D* to pick up a new sub to give away a new dish and installation.
