Satellite How many receivers do I need?

I have a 2013 Columbus RS320 and I'm thinking of getting a carryout satellite. Does anyone know if I have one reciever box in the living room will I be able to watch that same channel in the bedroom and outside using the existing hookups?

What flavor of satellite service? Directv has the genie which when properly equipped will let you watch multiple programs on different tv's.
Carryout will NOT give you HD service. Before spending one dime on equipment first decide, service provider, what exactly you want, how many televisons.

I have had a Winegard Carryout and the Dish provider. We enjoyed HD programming with that set up. I recently installed a Winegard Pathway X1 as a permanent roof mount. IMO Dish works better in RV's.

To answer your question exactly -- yes. I have DISH and using the 722 receiver for HD and DVR can push signal to several tv's. I went through three portable satellite dish before I found the Wineguard Ansar that received HD -- others do not so be careful.

I have DirecTV with an HD dish. Can't imagine DISH network being any different, better or easier to setup. I have one receiver for my main TV and an A/V converter to send SD signal to the bedroom TV using the existing coax wiring.
