Step 1: getting ready for DIRECTV home installation:
You need an unobstructed view of the southern sky. Your DIRECTV satellite dish needs a direct line of sight to our satellites, so make sure trees and buildings do not interfere. If you have questions, or have several options for locations and can’t decide, don’t worry—when the installer arrives, he will be able to help you choose the best spot for your dish and address any other specific needs you may have for your new satellite TV system.
Step 2: DIRECTV installation:
During your Professional Basic Installation, your certified DIRECTV installer will:
- Install a DIRECTV satellite dish on your roof, side of home, balcony or other location.
- Conncet all of your DIRECTV receiver(s) to your current TV, audio receiver, VCR and/or DVD player.
- Complete a system test verifying signal strength, access card match and telephone connectivity.
- Give you a brief lesson about your DIRECTV system.
- Activate your DIRECTV television service.
Step 3: Watch DIRECTV:
After the installation is complete, the only thing left for you to do is to sit back, relax and enjoy your new DIRECTV satellite television. Whether you’re in the mood for sports, movies, news, music, or more, you can find it all with a programming package from DIRECTV. Plan a sports night with friends with one of the provider’s exclusive sports subscriptions, or choose from one of 10,000+ titles with DIRECTV On Demand.”
Get DIRECTV programming in your apartment
You don't need to own a house to get great satellite service! As a resident of a condo or apartment, you can set up your own DIRECTV System or your entire building could be served from just one dish. There are just a few things to consider before you order from America’s #1 satellite TV service provider for your apartment or condominium. By following the steps below, you can discover what your best options for DIRECTV service are at your location.
If you want to install your own DIRECTV System, start by asking your landlord, property manager or homeowners association if you may install a DIRECTV System on your rooftop. If not authorized to mount the dish on the roof, many apartment and condominium residents have the dish installed on a private patio or balcony - a clear view of the southern sky is required.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) generally forbids local governments and homeowners associations from enforcing unreasonable restrictions regarding the installation of satellite dishes one meter or smaller. For more information visit the FCC website.
However, your system installation may require structure modifications that may be limited or restricted by the terms of your lease/rental agreement. To avoid delays in your installation, we ask that you obtain written or verbal permission from your landlord, homeowners association or property manager (or, alternatively, you may review your lease/rental agreement/HOA CC&Rs to confirm that permission is not required) prior to scheduling your installation.
If you have verbal authorization from your landlord, homeowners association or property manager for a DIRECTV System installation, you can print and sign this installation permission form and provide it to your installer on the day of installation.
Moving? No problem:
When you choose DIRECTV, you can rest assured that you’ve chosen service that will last you into the future. You can even take DIRECTV service with you if you move. DIRECTV distributes programming across the United States. Just call DIRECTV and tell us when you're moving and where. Leave the satellite dish, take your receiver(s) and remote(s) to your new house and we'll meet you there to install a new satellite dish...hassle-free.
