You are allowed to place a satellite dish only on property under your exclusive control, such as a balcony or patio. And your balcony needs a clear view to the southwest, where the satellites are located. You might still need basic cable for over-the-air reception of local TV stations. And you would certainly need basic cable if you want the public access, Crosswalks, and CUNY channels.

: Forget cable, buy a dish now! Take it with you when you move...

: In Nov 1998, the FCC amended a law that allows
tenants to install dishes regardless of what the
landlord says, within reason. There were
articles in most newspapers and on many websites.

: Here are two URL's: an article from the NYLJ
and the law itself



: Look for more current articles before you do
anything: try the dish companies themselves.
