I called tech support and they said it's not actually available in my area. I also found out after installation that Showtime isn't available in HD in my area. Sorry, but how in the heck is that possible? This isn't 1999.
I called DirecTV to have them send a tech out to see if there's anywhere they could put a dish. They can put a pole anywhere if it would work.
just explain to the tech you really need to find a place to get a signal. its all going to depend on the tech, if he is cool then you are good. if he is lazy he may just say no chance for signal and move on.
you should be able to tell if yo can get a signal. do you have a clear view anywhere on your property? also, if you do need to use a pole go buy it at home depot or they'll charge you like $80 for the pole when you could buy it for $10 or so
