Learn About Your Rights to Satellite Service

December 24th, 2012

Occasionally, rental properties or homeowners associations (HOAs) tell our customers they’re “not allowed” to have a satellite antenna. This is not always the case.

In fact, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the Over-the-Air Reception Devices (OTARD) Rule to regulate and protect your choice of TV providers.

In most instances, you are allowed to have a DISH antenna provided you meet the following criteria:

  • The antenna is installed in an area that you have sole access to (such as a private balcony or deck).
  • The antenna’s placement does not extend into any common areas (such as walkways or gardens).

If you feel that you meet these minimum requirements or if you have questions regarding the OTARD Rule, contact the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (225-5322) or visit the FCC’s page about the OTARD Rule. The FCC can determine whether or not your right to choose a TV provider is being unlawfully denied and help you resolve the issue.

Tips for Swapping Out a Receiver

December 14th, 2012

Did your receiver need to be replaced or did you upgrade to a newer one? Most likely you’ve received a new receiver in the mail, along with instructions on how to switch out your receiver and return the old one. DISH offers 24/7 tech support to assist you if you need it, but here are a few pointers that can help you to do it yourself!

  1. Don’t remove all of the cords at once.

    If possible, place the replacement receiver on top of the old receiver and move the cords one at a time, from the spot on the told receiver to the exact same spot on the new receiver. If this isn’t possible, take a picture of the back of your receiver to use as reference when replacing the cords.

  2. Keep cords organized.

    A jumble of cords behind your entertainment center can be quite daunting. Use this opportunity to get a handle on that tangle of cords. You can buy Velcro strips at most electronics store that come color coded and are specifically designed for organizing cords. Or you can use supplies you have at home, such as zip ties for holding cords and masking tap and Sharpie markers for color coding.

  3. Install a surge protector.

    This will protect your receiver and other electronic devices.

  4. Make sure your receiver is kept in an open space.

    There shouldn’t be any devices (such as DVD or Blu-ray players) on top of it. Refer to the packaging inserts for space requirements above and behind the receiver before installing in an entertainment center.
