take down dish

I have not had my directv hooked up for a couple of years but still have the dish on my desk.  Is there anyway for you to take it down?

This is a public forum and we are customers just like you. Therefore, unless you invited one of us to your house, we won’t be coming. (Lol)

Unfortunately, DIRECTV will not send one of their technicians to your house. Once the dish and cabling is put up, it’s yours to keep. Essentially, DIRECTV is not responsible for the dish after it is drilled into your roof, deck, etc. 

You may try putting an ad up on Facebook Marketplace for a free DIRECTV dish if the buyer comes to take it down themselves. This works great, especially since you benefit and the buyer does as well. (Buyer gets free satellite dish and the dish is removed from your home.) 

If removing the dish from its particular position has a chance of creating a leak, be sure to take only the dish and mast off. Do NOT take the actual bracket or monopole screws off. If you have the stub mount, there will not be any monopole screws or monopoles.

Dishes become a permanent part of the property and are never removed by DirecTV

Once installed, the receiving dish you own. DirecTV does not send techs to remove equipment.

If you want it removed, you do it yourself. If you choose to do so, leave the mounting plate to protect against leaks.

you own the dish cables and splitters remotes. the only thing they want back are the boxes.. if you want the dish taken down you have to do it yourself or post on facebook. dish network is the same way.
