A second TV can be hooked up to a satellite using a separate receiver or you can use one satellite receiver to hook up two TVs to receive the same signal and channel. When you piggyback another TV off of one satellite receiver, you need to split the signal. You can watch TV on either of the TVs, but the two TVs will be watching the same channel.
