Tank, thanks for the questions. As far as I know, if you are with Dish System at home you just need to add this to what ever program you have. I had the minimum and I could call and turn it on or off anytime. Cost was $8.00 to add it per month. My understanding is that it works with all Dish type systems but I would check your carrier to make sure, I do not know. They are sold everywhere including Camping World so they may be able to help you out.
I am in Raleigh, NC area but the unit can be UPS shipped.
