If I'm an existing Direct TV Customer will you use the same satellite dish and cables for the internet?  I live in a rural area and don't really want two satellite dishes.

You don't have a choice. They point to different satellites.  I have 3 dishes on my roof. 1 unused (hughesnet) and one for Viasat and one for DirecTV.

Nope,  Viasat requires it's own separate dish.
