Can my city/homeowners' association prevent me from installing a satellite dish?


While DIRECTV doesn't participate in disputes between dish owners and homeowners' associations or government bodies, we hope you find the following information useful:

Section 207 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 required the Federal Communications Commission to issue rules prohibiting restrictions by zoning boards, homeowners' associations, and similar organizations that keep a viewer from getting video programming services with the DIRECTV System and other direct broadcast satellite dishes.
