umm u do know that one dish tv installation would run only one television set? if you connect more, you get to see the same channel on all of these television sets?knowing that u should be able to run dish tv on ur pc using a tv tuner card. but the software won't be able to change the channel.

yeap. every TV would require its own set top box and a subscription. welcome to the sucker world. you would need to pay for the set top box for each television set/computer. and you would need to pay for its subscription.
