Default Split hd from dvr wireless to 2nd tv

first i apologize that i'm new to this forum and trying to post in the right category. secondly, i've read 3 pages of posts looking for this subject and not been successful in finding the answer.

easy question with hopefully an easy answer:

i have DIRECTV with one main dvr/receiver in the living room and one "sub-receiver" in the master bedroom. recently had a kid move back home that wants their own tv in their bedroom with DIRECTV.

i want to split the signal from the living room dvr wirelessly to the kid's tv. i understand that the signal to the kid's tv will be the same that is showing on the living room tv. i.e. ch 6 in liv rm = ch 6 in kid's rm

what hardware is available to make this possible? and is there equipment available to also split the channels to be differing in each room. i am aware that i can get another "sub-receiver" from DIRECTV; however, it is my hope that soon the kid will be leaving for their own place. therefore, i don't wish to spend the $$ for a temporary fix.

thank you
