Dish Free Installation Checklist:

  • Renting? Make sure you have your property management’s approval to install a satellite.
  • Living with a Homeowner’s Association? Most don’t have requirements for where your dish can go but it is always good to check and be aware before installation day.
  • Choose what rooms your DISH receivers will go. If possible, pull your TVs away from the wall and clear the path to the closest wall outlets so your tech can get to them.
  • Make sure the credit card holder who subscribed to DISH is present at home, with the credit card used to sign up, at the scheduled installation time.
  • Secure your pets prior to your scheduled installation time. Please secure any pets inside or on the property to avoid contact with your technician.
  • Clear a space for your technician to park. Please clear a parking spot for your technician to park their vehicle prior to your scheduled installation time.
  • Clear access to your roof. Make sure your roof or balcony has easy access for the technician to reach and install your satellite dish. You do not need a ladder.
