DISH Installation Appointment tracking on phone with My Tech App

What to expect on installation day

  • Step 2: The day before your appointment, we will contact you via phone, email, and/or text message to remind you of your appointment.
  • Step 3: On the day of your appointment, we will provide an estimated 75-minute window for your DISH technician to arrive. No one else gives you a shorter window than that. You can also track your appointment online at any time.
  • Step 4: Stay informed at every step with My Tech, which tracks your technician and gives you live updates up to an hour before the estimated arrival time.

Preparing for installation

Dish installation checklist:

  • Property Management Approval.
    You may need to complete the landlord permission form and provide it to the installation technician, 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 but this form 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.
