I have an interesting situation occurring at my home. I am in the process of getting a roof replacement later this week. The existing dish is installed very high on the existing roof at a level where the technician is not allowed to go.
Due to the new roof that is coming, my wife and I have stated that we will not have the dish installed on the roof. HOA restrictions prevent us from having the dish visible in the front yard. That leaves the sides of our house which do not give a clear view of the sky or the backyard which has limited opportunities. We have said that we will not have a dish in the middle of the backyard with holes being dug and possibly effecting our sprinkler system. Plus, our multi-switch is in the attic, so there are some challenges with getting the cabling to the attic if the dish is not on the roof.
I have a D* technician coming to my home tomorrow to survey the situation to determine if there is a line of sight that can be used that will not impact the aesthetics of our home. If he is unable to determine a location, I will have no option but to cancel my service.
Now, the question I have is, would I be allowed out of my contract without an ETF if they are unable to find a location to place the dish?
