Does DirecTV currently allow two homes on one account? Or are two accounts always required? This is with dedicated receivers in each home, no transporting of receivers, each in different locations (far apart) getting local channels. ie. on the up and up. From older threads I see references to explicitly allowing two homes on one account, such as Directv in Two Homes which says (in part) To clarify: You can have 2 locations on one account, but they cannot be active at the same time. To quote directly from DirecTV's CSR guide, "Receivers for primary home and second home should not be active at the same time. If customers want them active at the same time, set up a separate account for the second home."but that's an older (2005) thread so I'm curious if it's still valid. Elsewhere I read that I need two separate accounts. The AT&T support page on "How to suspend your DirecTV service" says something interesting: https://www.att.com/support/article/directv/KM1237725/ If you only have 1 account, you can suspend it 2 times in a 12-month period. Have 2 or more accounts? You can suspend each one a maximum of 4 times in a 12-month period. If applicable, we’ll extend your service agreement for the amount of time you suspend your account. For example: Your service agreement expires in June, but then you suspend the account for 4 months. The updated service agreement now ends in October. Which implies that there's a way for them to know that the same person/account how two accounts, but when I asked on a chat (for another issue) they said I needed a separate login/email account for a second account, so how would they know if I'm eligible for 'suspend each one 4 times in a 12-month period' (which I'd vastly) prefer, over 2 times. So Q1 is: Does DTV support two homes on a single account? That's of course what I'd prefer, so as to not have to double-pay for programming charges. I'd be happy to pay for the receivers in both places. Another question (Q2): What happens if I want to resume service in less than 30 days, ie. I head to one of the houses after 25 days, and can't get by without a DirecTV fix. One possibility is that they retroactively cancel the suspension, and you pay for the full 30 days as if it wasn't suspended, but wondered if someone knew for sure, someone here must have done a suspension then wanted access before the full 30 days.
