How to Add a Third TV to the Dish Network Box

by Greyson Ferguson

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. However, if you want multiple televisions connected to a single station, it is possible to add a second and even third TV to the Dish Network receiver box. This is helpful when running an electronics video display or if you own a business, like a restaurant or a bar, with multiple TVs.

Step 1

Connect the first coaxial cable into the "Out" port on the rear of the Dish Network receiver box.

Step 2

Plug the opposite end of the cable into the single "In" port on the TV channel splitter. Make sure the splitter has at least three "Out" connection ports.

Step 3

Attach each of the remaining three coaxial cables into the three "Out" ports on the TV channel splitter.

Step 4

Run each of the three cables to the three televisions (one cable per TV). Insert the cable into the "In" port on the television system.

Power on the three televisions and the Dish Network receiver. The television content now displays on the screen.
