DIRECTV Installation is easier than you think.
You've placed your order for your top-quality DIRECTV satellite television service, now it's time to get ready for the installation. Standard professional installation included at no extra cost, custom installation can be requested, if needed. Here's a quick break down of what you need to do beforehand, and what you can expect during installation1.
Schedule your home installation.
After you place your order, you'll be prompted to schedule your home installation with a trained installer. Depending on how many receivers you want, the placement of your dish, and required cables needed to complete installation, a custom installation may be required. The sales agent may be able to inform you of this, but you may also have complications with installation that require the technician to modify the standard install to a custom one while onsite. Installation of your new satellite dish can take two to five hours, so you will need to plan for a day when you can be home for that duration.
After you schedule your home installation, it is best to make sure that your home phone service and wireless Internet are setup too, for the most efficient installation process, and so you can immediately access additional features like On Demand. You will also need to decide which rooms you would like to have DIRECTV service in; thanks to the all-new Genie, the most HD DVR ever, you can have HD television in up to five rooms. If you live in an apartment, condo or neighborhood with a Home Owners Association, make sure you have prior approval for the installation of the dish on the outside of your residence. Once you have scheduled your installation and prepared for it, you will have your DIRECTV service in no time.
Day of installation.
One the day of installation, you will need to make sure that someone 18 or older is present. The certified technician will start the process by surveying the interior and exterior of your home, to ensure proper placement of your satellite dish and receivers. Once the technician has done that, they will share the installation plan with you, to make sure you are satisfied with everything. Unless there is existing cable in place, the installer will have to drill some holes and run new cable. They will place the satellite dish so that it has a clear view of the southern sky. The certified technician will then connect your receiver to your television- make sure your televisions are accessible and where you want them in the room.
After that, the technician will make sure everything is working properly. They will then give you a short demonstration on how to use your DIRECTV service and answer any questions you may have. You're good to go after that, you can immediately start enjoying all that DIRECTV has to offer.
