Discussion in 'DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion' started by Lord Vader, Sep 1, 2007.
Good Grief....We need more information then "Well, I won.... Give us the details. (PLEASE)
The complex manager read through the FCC information, realized my dish was not "too big," as she claimed it was, then told me not to discuss this with other tenants should they inquire about my dish. Translation: "We have an exclusive agreement with DISH, and if word gets out that you have a different provider with your own dish....".
The Force can have a strong influence on the weak mind.
Good work Lord Vader ..
Impressive, isn't it?
So the truth comes out!
Her claim that your dish was "too big" or that there were other things about it that were "wrong" was disingenuous.
What's really going on is that your complex gets kickbacks from Dish and is therefore pissed that you're a DirecTV subscriber at all!
This can really work to your advantage. If they give you trouble again, do anything but keep it quiet; make a loud stink! Let it be known what the real motives are! (But if they leave you alone, DO keep quiet. No need to rock the boat.)
Congrats on your win!
congrats.. how ever please still be wary that she can bring up the drilling if she really wanted to.. or if some less than scrupulous Dish rep were to inform her of it.
I have my ways of dealing with DISH.
Seems to me when she'll realize your dish have D* logo, then you'll oblige to paint it to "Dish 1000".
I wonder if they'll change there leases and add something about having DISH or an exclusive deal. Can that be done. Kinda thinking out loud here.
If needed I could supply you with all the D* door hangers you need. !Devil_lol
I might take you up on that offer.
That was funny :lol:
You've got that backwards. If Mr. Vader is truly the Dark Lord, then what he needs to do is find that master Dish dish, and stencil the D* logo on it. !Devil_lol That will make the E* guy thats in with managements head explode.
*Disclaimer - Just kidding. I don't condone vandalism, regardless on how funny it may be.
Congrats on the win. We've all been following this with interest. Guess we won't have to send any muscle over there after all.
While the thought does not go unappreciated, I remind you that the Sith are fully capable of achieving their goals on their own.
I'm confused. Are there Dish dishes installed in the complex? As far as her request "not to discuss it...", if you are doing nothing wrong, talking about it shouldn't be restricted (but that's just my combative nature coming out).
Glad it worked out for you.
Tenants get their DISH programming through some centralized sat. dish on the complex. It's an MDU situation with DISH having exclusivity, something that, BTW, FCC regs explain, doesn't preclude individuals from choosing a different provider.
Because I've had DirecTV since way before DISH and our complex signed this agreement, I'm one of the lucky ones.
Very cool. Are you renting? If yes, I thought the FCC specifically mentions that drilling, etc is a no, no. Using a non-instrusve installation method (think pole in a cement bucket on a balcony) is what a lot or renters do.
I'm glad you get to leave the dish where it is BUT, there is one point everyone seems to have overlooked. As you described the beam the dish is installed on, IT IS NOT YOUR EXCLUSIVE USE, IT IS A SUPPORT FOR THE BALCONY ABOVE. Therefore, it is a part of the building structure. This, in itself, precludes your using it to mount the dish. Think of it this way, remove that single beam support and what happens to the deck(s) above when a load, such as 3 or 4 people sitting in chairs, is placed upon it. It could cause structural damage by sag or collapse!
