Default Direct TV in an apartment complex..

Who here has direct TV in thier apartment and had to present a letter to the installer stating that they can have permission to setup a dish?

I wonder how often they check for this..

ThanksTS

They really should ask that anytime you rent and do not own the dwellling, but I am not certain that is the case all the time. It is probably a legality.

If you tell the installer to go ahead and install it, they're gonna assume you have permission. Then it's on you, not them. It's your security deposit, not Direct's.

I posted a thread a week or so ago about how worried I was that I couldn't keep my DTV HD when I moved into my sweet new apartment. From the balcony I don't have line of sight so I was really worried. I got a kick ass installer who did a crazily intricate install that would make McGyver and Spiderman proud. Ultimately he ran almost 400 feet of RG-6, hooked up the 5LNB slimline to a steel fence with some sort of hydraulic-like support arms and ran cable up to the 4th floor from the first.

I had to show him I had permission from the landlord (I got the signed permission slip from leasing office) and he made me sign
that I did the install myself and he just ensured that everything was working properly. Basically he went above and beyond to
make sure I still got my HD programming, but I ultimately have to be held responsible for the install should anyone (residents or
landlord) have any problem with it.

Don't you love it when you get that rare person who really cares and goes above and beyond to do the right thing. It restores your faith.
