If you are moving and have DirecTV service, you will want to take your receivers with you to your new address location.  You are entiled to  1 free move/install per year - if you have had your service installed within the  last 12 months, that would have been free and then you are not entitled to  another free move/install until next year. 

DIRECTV offers qualified customers a free move (with a 12mo  service agreement) once per year, after they have had service for at least 12  consecutive months. This can be ordered by the Movers Connection department.  More info available here: (see the link at  the bottom for "Terms and Conditions").

You  may be quoted $149 to move your service if you have had a limited/short or  negative account history (such as payments not being made on time). Exceptions  are currently only made for military service members moving as a result of  military orders.

The charge for your second  and each additional move(s) in a rolling year can be up to $199. This is because  the initial installation and each Movers Connection costs the company well over  $300 and like Answerman said, it would be cost prohibitive to make it free every  time.
