Having been a specialist installer for as long as I have, I’ve seen a lot of contrary installations by other service technicians as well as have assisted a significant share of dissatisfied consumers. Not by any fault of mine, however because of what the previous service technician did or did not do accurately such as the following:

My technician did not mount the meal correctly, and currently, my TV goes out every time the wind blows.

My professional ran cable television throughout the flooring as well as I trip on it each time I stroll right into the area.

My specialist just left the wire on the ground or hanging off the side as well as it looks awful.

My specialist pierced openings where I did not desire and harmed my home.

My service technician drilled an opening and also ran a cord via my wall surface and also really did not even set up a wall plate. My professional mounted the meal on my roofing and also really did not seal it properly as well as now it leakages, and also I have ceiling damage.

I have understood a lot of professionals, and generally, they are expert in the method they do their jobs, but I’ve additionally seen the lazy, inexperienced ones that spoil it for the rest people. Although they do not last long as well as are rapidly discharged often the damages is currently done!

At the end of each install when its time to sign the documents, the consumer releases the service technician as well as accepts all work done during the installment. However not every person understands what to keep an eye out for and also in some cases obtains ripped off out of an expert task. Before you enroll in satellite service, right here are a few common things you must anticipate regarding your cost-free satellite installment.


1. The dish should just be placed on the roofing system if there is nothing else location to put it. The ideal place for a recipe is most likely to be on the side of your house or a definite article. It will be much better protected versus the wind and snow, more easily obtainable and also it will certainly not call for roof covering penetration. The recipe can be put on the roofing system securely yet must be sealed appropriately! Regarding a third of the installs, I most likely to where there is currently a meal mounted on the roof has been installed poorly as well as the placing screws have come loose because of weathering.

2. You should expect your recipe system to be grounded according to local as well as NEC codes. If your dish is not based correctly call the company that did your installation or your satellite supplier.

3. All outdoors wiring and hardware must be secured securely to the wall surface. All cabling should be secured with screw/nail clips and also ought to not droop.

4. All wall surface penetrations ought to be sealed as well as cabling set up with drip loops. Cable television is originating from a wall outside need to point down very first to keep water from leaking into the hole.

5. All external connections must be tight and weatherproof. Failing to maintain all outdoor fittings weatherproof will all water invasion into the installations as well as corrosion out your cable center conductor. If this happens, you will lose your signal.


1. All wall infiltrations need to have a wall surface plate. Some installers just run cable right into the house with the wall and right into the receiver. For some that could be alright but if you do not have actual lines pre-installed in your home you ought to anticipate to have a wall plate installed for every line ran.

2. Cord outlets ought to be installed where you wish to have your TELEVISION. It may not be possible in every scenario to follow this regulation however placing a wall surface outlet where you don’t want it and after that extra running cable on the within to where your TELEVISION is, even if it would certainly be less complicated on the specialist, should not happen. Cable television should never encounter the flooring or entrance. This is YOUR residence not his, and also you are the boss.

If you are not delighted with your installment, don’t sign the job order. Your professional the Multichoice experts should more than happy to work with you until you are entirely pleased. It’s much better to obtain it done the way you want it now than to have him come back later. It loses your time and also his.
