Wireless Connection

I will be moving into a house that is not wired for TV.  Is there a way to go wireless between the satellite dish and the DirecTV control box?  Thanks.

No, there has to be coax connected from the dish to a SWM splitter then to a Genies after that you can use wireless clients. DTV can do a house wrap where they run the coax outside and drill holes to feed the coax inside near the DTV receivers. Wall fishing is extra.

Even in DTV wireless setting, one main box needs to be wired to dish. Wireless connection is between the main box and the others.
