If you are nice and they can't get line of sight... they may offer to waive the contract... but don't expect it. Maybe you will be ok and they can get signal in the new location... but you aren't going to know until you try.

If you are willing to have a pole mount in the yard they may be able to find an opening in the trees. The only problem then would be as the trees grow they may eventually block the signal.
A compass and a chart (based on zip code) should show you where the signals come from. You may be able to find where an opening is (hopefully on the house but if not then in the yard).
Also some markets have their locals on both the eastern and western arc, so you may have two shots at finding an opening.

Thanks for the responses. I'm in Sacramento. I guess it will be a wait and see. I've been with DISH a while and hope they can somehow find a line of sight. I would have the same problem with D* so that would leave me with Comcast which -- in Sacramento -- is not a quality option!.
