Hi, Everyone:


I have a question for my friend who has Dish network.
My friend's landlord no long wants to let him have a Dish in his yard.
Is there a way that he can keep dish network and use it without having a dish in his yard ,like wireless. Or is there away to get wireless a reciever or a device of some sort that let
him get his service wirelessly or by having his Dish moved houses down the street and some how get his channels transmitted down the street. He is referring to a legal way, not stealing it or something like that, for he is paying for it. I as this because it cost too much to cance your service, just because your landlord does'nt want you to have Dsih anymore.

Sincerley,
Shirley J.

From the FCC Fact Sheet on Placement of Antennas:

The rule applies to individuals who place antennas that meet size limitations on property that they own or rent and that is within their exclusive use or control, including condominium owners and cooperative owners, and tenants who have an area where they have exclusive use, such as a balcony or patio, in which to install the antenna. The rule applies to townhomes and manufactured homes, as well as to single family homes.

If this applies then the landlord has no say-so in the matter.

The rule allows local governments, community associations and landlords to enforce restrictions that do not impair the installation, maintenance or use of the types of antennas described above, as well as restrictions needed for safety or historic preservation. Under some circumstances where a central or common antenna is available, a community association or landlord may restrict the installation of individual antennas. The rule does not apply to common areas that are owned by a landlord, a community association, or jointly by condominium or cooperative owners where the antenna user does not have an exclusive use area. Such common areas may include the roof or exterior wall of a multiple dwelling unit. Therefore, restrictions on antennas installed in or on such common areas are enforceable.

If is not attached to the building or in a common area, you are fine. My mother has had tenants install DirectTV dishes on a new roof, not happy about that. A pole would have been much better and even in the tenants exclusive use area.

There is also the slingbox. I haven't used it, but it seems like the solution you are looking for.
