Diffrent room, diffrent service?

05-21-2006, 07:48 PM
If I have DTV in four rooms do they all have to have the same package?

I'd like the super-primo-all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips for the media room (ok it's just the family room but "media" sounds cool)

for the other rooms the run-of-the-mill basic type of service would do.

Is that possible or is that not the way it works?

What ever is subscribed for one will be subscribed for all on the same account. Once you get past the basic charges, the other receivers are $5/month each for all service subscribed to.

One thing you can do is, go into your favorites on the other recievers and do a channel edit so the others only have the channels you want to recieve.... they will still be there, but won't show up in the guide and your remote will skip over the channels you deleted.

You MIGHT be able to call D* and have them set up just your channels on a perticular reciever, seeing they are individual rec's., but they would probably tell you to do a favorites as I mentioned.

You don't pay any more or less for the channels on all rec's other than the $ 5 for the addl's

Yeah, that's what I thought... Thanks. I was looking at the Verizon web site and there is very little info on it.
