As a resident of a condo or apartment, you can set up your own DIRECTV System or your entire building could be served from just one dish.

If you want to install your own DIRECTV System, first check with your landlord or property manager for permission to install the DIRECTV satellite dish on your rooftop. If you are not able to install it on a rooftop, you may be able to install it on your private balcony or patio or in your garden, as long as the satellite dish has a clear view of the southern sky. In fact, a January 1999 FCC ruling states that apartment, condominium, town home and single family home renters can install either satellite dishes or TV antennas in these areas. Visit the FCC website for details.
