I thought that landlords could not deny you satellite service even if it meant running cable lines. What's the law on this? I read it somewhere,but can't remember. I think your landlord is pulling the perverbial wool over your eyes. I bet your building has cable in every room right. It doesn't seem right. I've heard of apartment buildings having designated dish area's. So what if you want to run a cable as long as it's neat.

geneb11 - aprtment building managers cannot prohibit you from putting a dish IN YOUR EXCLUSIVE CONTROLLED AREA - i.e. you can certainly place the dish on YOUR patio / balcony and the landlord can't do a thing about it. HOWEVER, the landlord CAN restrict you from physically damaging his building, or prevent you from attaching your dish to the building.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...
