Directv -VuQube Dish

I called Directv this am to inquire about using my VuQube flex dish in my Solera and was told that each time I move the Rv to a new campground I would need to call Directv to have the receiver activated for the address of the campground.

Just wondering if anyone else out there has the VuQube with Directv receiver and can ascertain that this is correct?

I would think the as long as the service for the receiver is being paid on a monthly basis I'd be able to move it around and use it as I need on the road?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

I don't have Direct but with Dish Network and the Tailgater none of that is necessary. I just take the receiver from home and I'm good to go.

Even with the tailgater, if you move very far, you have to call to change local TV channels to the area you are in.

I don't know what the radius of service is, though.

We have the Vqube satellite finder and the only time we have to call Directtv is when we haven't used it for a while. Never heard of having to call each time you move....however, things may have changed since we haven't used it since January, 2014. Our Vqube is about 3 years old, also.

I use a Winegard in-motion dish. Anytime I'm mor than 30-40 miles outside my home zip code, I get no local channels. But regular satellite channels are available anywhere I go. If I want local channels, I just crank up the over-the-air antenna and can usually get them without a problem (unless in a mountain valley, for instance). I've never felt a need to get local channels via satellite. If the receiver has not been used for a good while, it will sometimes need to be re-authorized. I do this over the internet - quick and easy and better than waiting forever for a Customer Service person on the phone!

I suspect it is like Dish and the Tailgater. If you want the local network channels at your location call them with the zip code where you're at and the local networks will then be available to your sat viewing lineup. If you don't call you will have sat lineup minus network channels. JMO
