How Do I Move My Dish Service to a New Address?

DISH is an American satellite TV company. If you are moving to a new address and want to retain your DISH service, you have to notify them as early as possible. To move your DISH service, you have to contact customer service. You can change DISH service address through phone, live chat or email.

How Do I Move My DISH Service to a New Address?

DISH is an American company that offers direct broadcast satellite television services. They have multiple packages from which customers can choose from and enjoy the network.

When moving from one residence to another, switching your Satellite TV can be quite a nuisance. A simple rule of thumb is the earlier you tell your satellite TV provider about your move, the sooner you can enjoy their services at your new address.

When moving, you will have to contact DISH in advance and alert them that your address will soon be changing. If you are moving to your own property, then changing your address is simple.

On the other hand, if you are moving to a rental property, you will have to ask your landlord if they will allow you to install your satellite dish in advance. There are many properties with a lot of restrictions on the modifications you can make to your living space.

When moving, you should ensure that you have all the DISH equipment neatly packed for easy installation at your new address. Some of the equipment you need to ensure you have included receiver (set top) box, viewing card, remote control, wireless connector, cables including HDMI/SCART cable and power leads, broadband router and microfilters.

Some residences will already have a DISH satellite installed which can significantly ease the installation process. On the other hand, if there is no dish present, call an engineer and they will install yours.

Calling DISH customer service in advance will also help in setting up an appointment with one of their engineers. The earlier you make the appointment, the sooner the engineer can arrive your residence and install the satellite dish.

Once the engineer has installed your satellite dish, you should check your account details online or by calling DISH customer service and ensuring that all your information is up to date. If not, update it as soon as possible.

By preparing and bringing your set top box and updating your account data, you retain all of your favorite shows and recordings. Preparation also ensures that there will be no surprises in case there are any special circumstances affecting your move.

To change the address for your DISH service, you should contact DISH customer service through any of the following avenues:


Calling DISH customer service is by far the fastest and most effective way to change your address. DISH has several customer service numbers through which you can call them.

In fact, they have a moving and address change concierge number which you can call for this specific purpose. Having a number to specifically cater to changing address significantly speeds up the process by eradicating the congestion on the phone line that would otherwise exist.

You can find all the phone numbers by visiting GetHuman. However, you would be better suited to call the moving and address change concierge first.

Live Chat

You can also initiate a live chat with DISH agents which is also very effective. It is not as fast as calling them but it will assuredly yield results.

The DISH live chat facility is always available so all you have to do is start the chat and wait. You can retrieve the link to the live chat on GetHuman.


DISH's customer service email is another option you can use to change your DISH address. With an email, you can describe why you want the address change in as much detail as you want. However, concision and brevity are encouraged.

Another benefit to sending an email is you can send it any time without worrying about when agents are available. You will have to wait a while for a response though.

The DISH customer service email can be retrieved from GetHuman.
