Preparing installation

Preparing for installation

Dish installation checklist:

  • Property Management Approval.
    If you live in an apartment or are part of a homeowners' association, your landlord or property management cannot prevent you from having DISH satellite TV, and we will ensure we adhere to the required regulations during the installation process.
  • Room Selection.
    Choose the rooms where your DISH receivers will go. If you can, move the TV away from the wall and clear the path to wall outlets, etc.
  • Credit Card holder used to qualify must be present.
    Make sure that the credit card holder who completed the DISH subscription is present at home during the scheduled installation time.
  • Secure Pets.
    Please secure any pets to avoid contact with the technician
  • Parking Requirements.
    Please keep in mind that the technician will need access to parking in order to begin installation.
  • Clear Roof Access.
    Make sure your roof or balcony has easy access for the technician.

DISH's legacy of customer service continues as we enhance our technician health-safety training for added peace of mind

As the nation responds to the spread of COVID-19, DISH has taken additional measures to keep our customers and team members safe, healthy, and connected to vital news, information and entertainment.

Throughout our history, DISH customers have always come first. DISH has been ranked #1 in Customer Satisfaction by J.D. Power and our customers for two years in a row, with top rankings in individual categories, including Courtesy and Professionalism of In-Home Technicians. That legacy of commitment to customer service will continue throughout this pandemic, and DISH has taken active steps to maintain your ability to sign up for DISH service and protect you and your family during technician visits and in the DISH installation process.

Our professional technicians have received enhanced training on critical health-safety procedures, including those recommended by the CDC to promote cleanliness and to help prevent the spread of illness.

  • Work orders will be signed using a unique pin so you won't need to touch the technician's phone or tablet while on-site.
  • Technicians will take enhanced cleaning measures to sanitize surfaces they come in contact with and equipment installed in your home.
  • Technicians will wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  • Technicians will refrain from leaving behind paper manuals or equipment packaging unless desired by customers.
  • Technicians will practice safe social distancing whenever possible while visiting your home, and have been advised not to shake hands.
  • As always, if technicians have a known illness, they will not visit a customer's home.

We know how important television is to you and your loved ones, so our professional technicians will continue to work in a clean, safe manner consistent with our commitment to customer service.

Additionally, we are proud to support the increased connectivity needs of Americans in these uncertain times by providing wireless carriers with access to our wireless spectrum at no cost.

By working together and treating each other with care, America will endure these challenging times. All of us here at DISH remain committed to serving, entertaining, informing and connecting America.
