    Hi a need some help last week I make a contract with DirecTV but the problem is the I live in a apartment and they don’t want any dish in the roof , and I don’t have any patio or balcony. SO I call the Fcc and they tell me to buy a Tripod, but my question is, if I buy a tripod can I install my Directv in my Room? Can someone help me, Thank you

    If you can get the dish a clear view of the satellites, it can be inside. Do you know if you have windows facing south?

    Thats the best advice the FCC coud give? A tripod would only make sense if you had a deck. Call the FCC back and explain your situation a little better. The apartments need to allow you some way to mount the dish, either on the roof o the side of the building.

    Yes, what about if a buy a satellite window mount do this work? This thing is not going to do any damage to the apartment but you thing it can be a problem? They are like 2 families that they have Directv install it in the roof and I ask them if they get permission and they tell me Yes, can I tell that to the FCC?

    YOu have to work it out with your landlord....Your landlord can deny you putting your dish in any common areas, only whats considered part of your apt.....if where you live doesnt work for Directv, then you may not be able to get it. The FCC cant force anyone to let you have it, only if your landlord is denying you the right to put it up on your part of the building, not a common area.....
