Room Selection - Pick the room(s) where you'd like to watch DIRECTV programming.
TV Access - Move your television away from the wall to help the installer reach the connections.
Appointment Duration - Set aside 2 to 4 hours to be at home so the installer has time to connect your system and give you a simple demonstration.
Presence of an Adult - Make sure someone over 18 is home to sign the installation documents when the installer is finished.
Clear Roof Access - Make sure your roof or balcony has easy access for the installer.
Working Phone Line - Make sure you have a land-based phone connection with a nearby jack (or wireless jack) so you can take advantage of great features like On-Screen Caller ID and ordering Pay Per View. You'll need caller ID service from your phone service provider.
Property Management Approval - If you live in an apartment or are part of a homeowners' association, check with your landlord or management company about regulations for installing television service. You may need to fill out a Landlord Permission Form.
