    I think that we must both must be meaning the same thing, but just saying it differently. I agree that "BOTH of them MUST be done together." Which is the same thing as saying that if either piece is NOT done, it does not pass the test of the allowed usage.

    And again, I'll leave the legal interpretation to the lawyers. I'm just talking about the plain English meaning of the sentence.

    If the slingbox is sending programming to a non-subscriber it is no different than not paying for service but receiving the programming for free. Account stacking is where more than one parties share programming for a single paid account. If you think it means something else please let us know.

    It would not necessarily be anything of the sort.

    If you can't get service at your house and put a receiver at a friends house with a slingbox then it would be account stacking. If you get your own account for that receiver at your friends house then it wouldn't be stacking. It would be your receiver with your account at a remote location.

    Now make next step(s) - you and your friend watching NHL game via sling (in your house or in his house); now - next - you went to a porch to make smoke break alone, or went to a grocery store for another round of bear or went to a hospital getting emergency call about your dying relative ... Should I continue ? Or you have knowledge of many similar occasions by yourself to bring these here ?

    Can't imaging those scenarios ?
    Can't follow ?
    OK. Point is your friend watching alone, while you (the subscriber) is out, for short or long amount of time. Got it ?

    I know a sports bar OWNER with a big fat commercial account.... that installed a dish himselves at home, and uses 2 of the god-knows-how-many receivers he has at the bar for his home. He can't get premiums on them (not allowed to show in commercial setting), nor can he get the music channels (same thing, can't use those in a bar), but he gets all the damn sports he could ever want. :D

    Sure, it is not allowed. At all. Nor is it allowed for a San Diego born and raised friend of mine that now lives right here in OC to have his DVR attached to his parents account, and he receives all the SD locals in OC, as it is within the same spotbeam....

    As far as the OP is concerned: If there is no LoS, you won't be able to open up an account. But just as above, if you can place a slingbox + receiver at someone else that has an account, you could use it that way. Again, it isn't allowed.... but people do it.

    Quite frankly, if you can't get DirecTV due to line of sight, you are probably better off going with cable.

    Did you catch where I said that both people had their own DirecTV account?
