No LOS to 110 and 119 satellites, will they still install?

I can get clear LOS to the main 3 satellites 99 101 and 103 but over 60% sure they won't be able to get signal from the 110 and 119. Will that affect my service at all or stop them from installing?
Edit: I am trying to get the premier package with HD channels adn they told me it would be a 5 NLB or whatever the 3 letter combination is dish.

For further analysis, at your location, the 110 is at 206 deg. mag. AZ., 41 deg. EL. The 119 is at 218 deg. mag. AZ, 37 deg. EL. Don't worry about the 110. But if you confirm that you have no LOS to the 119 satellite, you'll need a Slimline 3 (99/101/103) dish. If these are not now available in your area, they soon will be.

You could use a Slimline 5, but you'd either have to install it yourself or have a custom installer do it. In addition, you'd have to make sure that you parked your receivers' tuners every night on a 99 or 101 satellite channel to assure continuity of Guide data reception, since the 119 is the secondary source when the 101 is unavailable to the tuners because they are parked on the other side of the stack plan.
