I want to add an additional receiver to my house, im currently on no contract, and bought another receiver on [email protected] I need an access card cause it didnt come with one, was wondering will dtv make me renew my contract? or will they just tack on the extra receiver and send me a new access card? tia.

Probably will have to sign a 1 year commitment if it is a regular box. If dvr, hd, or hd dvr, a two year comitment.

Your best bet is to call them. But I think they will only charge you for the new access card you will need.

Every time I do anything with them, they add at least a year.

When I added a receiver, they just added $4.99 to my monthly bill without extending my current 1 year contract, but the receiver already had an access card.

i guess if they tell me i have to renew a year, i will just tell them i will cancel. Then sign up again and get all new boxes i guess. and free hbo for a few months. or will they not let me re-sign up after i cancel?
