    I got Directv a couple of months ago.

    I live in an apartment and they set up a pretty big dish on a tripod on my balcony. The dish says Slimline on it.


    I recently saw another balcony with a much smaller DirecTV dish...why is this dish so much smaller than mine? It's held up by a pole, not a tripod.

    Thanks.

    Chances are the other subscriber only has standard def (SD) service, not HD. The 18" round dish is all that is needed in most markets for SD.

    Thanks..I figured as much, but wanted to make sure there wasn't a smaller alternative.
