Nowadays, satellite TV is one of the best options for most people when it comes to choosing a provider. Satellite provides the most “bang for your buck” when it comes to the amount and quality of channels you receive. There are tons of different satellite providers, but DISH Network is one of the most popular because of its huge channel selection and quality customer service. But before you run out and sign up for DISH Network service, we think you should know a few things about DISH Network installation in San Bernardino County:
- Property requirements: Unfortunately, DISH Network service isn’t possible at every home or in every neighborhood. The biggest requirement for people that want DISH Network (or any other satellite TV or Internet provider, for that matter) must have an unobstructed view of the sky. That can be a problem for folks who live in big cities or out in the country and are surrounded by tall trees. Speaking of city dwellers, people who live in apartment buildings must have their landlord’s permission to install the dish on the side of their building. If a landlord is a jerk and won’t let a tenant install a dish on the side of the building, an installation professional could be able to set the dish up near the window of an apartment or on the balcony. And if you’re a member of a homeowner’s association, you’ll have to check the bylaws to make sure a satellite dish is allowed on your property. The last thing you want is to pay for installation only to have to take it down for breaking a rule.
- Equipment requirements: DISH Network installation isn’t like regular cable installation; it requires more equipment to get up and running. While that may sound like a bummer, we assure you, it’s not. In order to have DISH Network, your biggest need is a satellite dish to receive a signal from the satellite in outer space. You’ll also need a receiver and remote control for each TV to change the thousands of channels DISH Network offers. Since we install and sell all of the necessary DISH Network equipment, we’re your one-stop shop for satellite TV bliss. Your DISH may also require special wires in order to function properly; our expert technicians can handle installation of all of those, as well.
- You can install it yourself: While we offer fast and reliable DISH Network installation in San Bernardino County, real do-it-yourselfers may be interested in installing everything by themselves. Unfortunately, there are several downsides to self-installation. DISH offers equipment leases if you have professional installation. That option isn’t available for folks who install the system on their own. DIY-ers must purchase the satellite dish, receiver(s) and anything else that’s needed for DISH Network service. Installing DISH Network by yourself may also void the warranty that comes with the dish and receivers.
