Star Choice / Shaw Direct used to actively promote the idea of the "moveable" receiver. At one time, there was a web page devoted to the RV crowd. The retail package you bought at Radio Shack included a dish + a receiver. Providing the dish through affiliated installers is now used as a control over "wild" installations.

From what I gather, CRTC ruled 1 location = 1 bill at some point, so that home away from home got quashed. Read on some other forums that even a secondary building on the same property (e.g., garage, guest house) has to be within a certain radius of main antenna to qualify under the same plan.

I'm sure there are at least 4 bureaucrats in Ottawa who could enlighten us as to how we are being better served...
