What is the difference in service for mobile vehicles and service for multiple homes?


Multiple homes require another account if you want service at both homes at the same time. Mobile accounts are not permanent fixtures and may be used part-time, so using one account is acceptable.

There are also different rules regarding local channels, since a mobile receiver may be taken out of area, where your local channels are not available.
