Legal/Sharing Directv with neighbor question

Does anybody know if it is legal/acceptable to share directv services with neighbors? Here's the situation....

I just moved in next door in a town house with some really good friends of mine. They have Directv and I have nothing yet. They have a couple of empty slots on their multiswitch. Would it be legal/acceptable to buy 2 receivers, pay the $5.00 monthly charge on them, and use them at my house, while I split the bill with my friend?

I seem to think it is not allowed, but Directv does make an extra amount of money on the receivers, so its not like I would be hacking or doing anything really illegal here.

It would not be allowed by DirecTV to share your account and get extra receivers with your neighbors. Since they are not living in your house, they need to get an account of their own.:nono2:
