Can you use a directv dish with a dishnetwork receiver?

Hi! I happened to run across your question just wanted to provide some clarification & confirm a DirecTV satellite dish will not work with our DISH Network programming, the alignment of the dish is different because our DISH Network programming is shown using different satellite orbital's than DirecTV's. I hope this answers your question or helps!

Kirstie,

We're only talking about the dish and associated hardware and not the receiver. The DirectTV satellite dish will work with the Dish receiver when the dish is properly oriented to the satellite that Dish Network is transmitting from.
