When using Dish Network, every television usually has its own receiver box, as each receiver has just one television tuner, making it possible to only view one station at a time.

There is also a monthly DVR fee of $15 (usually there is a $5/mo discount, which bring it to $10/mo). For a limited time, you get a Hopper Duo that allows you to record shows on 2 TVs. If you want to hook up more, you would need to pay a receiver fee of $7/month for each additional TV.

Can you split dish network signal?

Properly Splitting the Signal
