When you order DIRECTV from Mid-America Satellite, you will receive free standard home installation, which includes installation in up to four rooms by a certified installer. The DIRECTV installer will install the dish on your roof or other location, drill through one wall, connect your DIRECTV receiver to your current TV and DVR, VCR, or DVD player, and give you a mini-lesson on how to use DIRECTV while activating your services. When you order with us, you know your DIRECTV free installation will be done right the first time. Here's how it works.
STEP 1: Preparing for Your DIRECTV Home Installation
To take advantage of DIRECTV satellite TV, you need an unobstructed view of the southern sky, for a direct line of sight to the DIRECTV satellites. When the installer arrives he will be able to help you choose the right spot for the best reception for your DIRECTV satellite dish.
STEP 2: DIRECTV Installation Process
During the free professional installation, your DIRECTV installer will:
- Install the DIRECTV dish on your roof, side of home, balcony, or other best location for unobstructed view of the southern sky.
- Connect all of your DIRECTV receivers to current TV, VCR, DVR, or DVD player.
- Test the system to verify signal strength, access card match and telephone connectivity
- Activate and test your DIRECTV service
STEP 3: Watch DIRECTV in Your Home!
After your installation has been completed, all you have to do is sit back, relax and watch DIRECTV in your home!
What if I Have an Apartment?
Many condos and apartment buildings allow for DIRECTV services. In some places, you can order your own DIRECTV, and in others the whole building might be served by just one dish. Before you order, though, it's best to figure out your options for DIRECTV service for apartments or condos.
You may ask your landlord or property owner whether you may install a DIRECTV dish on your rooftop. If this is not allowed, many apartment and condo residents have the dish installed on a private patio or balcony; this will work as long as you have a clear view of the southern sky. To avoid delays in your installation, we recommend getting written or verbal permission from your landlord before scheduling free standard installation.
What if I'm Moving?
Moving is no problem. You can take DIRECTV services with you, and unlike with cable, DIRECTV will move you for free. Leave your satellite dish where you are, take your receivers and remotes with you, and we'll meet you there to install a new satellite dish, free of charge.
