    It's complicated and there have been several different ways it was accomplished. Pardon me for not writing a book!

    The specifics to accomplishing the said task is all that is sought here. A path forward for those who would like to pursue this, based on the experience of those who have already accomplished this task. However, the very fact that you list it as complicated is a indication that the ability to accomplish this is not available to just anyone.

    Thank you though. Hopefully the previous poster will respond.

    If you read the forum/threads that I posted about, you will find that the solution was persistence in several different avenues to find someone in the President's office who could authorize it - nothing special about the customer.

    I did find the girl who got two hopper 3's Here. I am persistant thats why i know it cant be done on a single account.

    They required two seperate residential accounts and two seperate dishes.
    These people dont have two on one account, they have two seperate accounts, one to accomodate each hopper 3. The managment has to authorize it but thats what needs to happen in order to accomplish two hopper 3's at one location.

    This is what dish offered me when i called to have a second hopper 3 activated. They said I would need to establish and maintain a new residential account, pay for programming all over again as well as my dvr fees, my protection plan, my add ons, ect, I would be paying essentially 198$ mo X 2, just to have a second hopper 3.

    So since people said they got two hopper 3s on one account I began to try to find out how.

    The deal with two Hopper 3's.

    the answer is, no, you cant have two hopper 3's on one account.

    Not true. There are customers with 2 Hopper3s on one account. Read the threads I referred to earlier. If you go through CSRs or DIRT, you can't do it.

    It has been done (past) and it cannot be done (now/future) are different statements. When was the last time someone was able to get it done?

    you gave no links. no specifics. no phone numbers. no names. I called several numbers listed for Dish Executive Office this morning, There is no Presidents Office listing for Dish that i could find, also Dish Internet Response Team WOULD OBVIOUSLY not be able to activate a hopper. for the day to day person there is no obvious option to get two hopper 3's on one account.

    Personally, ALL times I have ever called beginning May 2017 to just last weekend to try and negotiate a second Hopper 3 I have been refused. Using all means by which to communicate. The only option they offered me from the BACK OFFICE, whatever that is, was to establish a second account. that was the only option given.

    Again, if someone could provide personal knowledge of specifics for a path forward for those interested in this setup, that would be great.

    I recently had two Hopper 3's installed on one account and one dish. In fact when I set up the account DISH recommended I have two. I had to purchase one (found much cheaper over the internet than from DISH). Have 5 Joey 3's and one 4K Joey.
