Satellite TV Installation Guidelines


Satellite tv installation

Although installation of satellite television is relatively simple, it is highly recommended that you let a professional do it for you. Most satellite companies provide this service through a local technician. This should include the fitting of the dish to the building, the setting up of the receiver and a brief tutorial to help you get to know the system. Should you wish to install the system yourself, Dish Network has plans and videos on how to do it, but it should be made clear that warranties on satellite systems are often not valid unless installed by a trained professional.

If you live in an apartment block, you should seek the advice of your Home Owner's Association with regard to your satellite TV dish. There should be nothing to stop you fitting a satellite dish to the building so long as it is within your 'wall space', but conflicts do occur, and there are always exceptions. You should also seek advice from your chosen satellite provider and, if necessary, further advice is available from the Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association ( or from the Federal Communications Commission ( One way around HOA problems could be to have the satellite dish within your apartment. If you have a window with a clear view of the southern sky, you will be able to pick up a signal. However, it is somewhat impractical and, many types of glass cause the signal to be disrupted.
