Custom Installation Pricing


This document is only applicable to Southern Sky Satellite's local central Louisiana customers and may or may not be used by your designated installer.


Installation or service work is NOT refundable!


All installations are different because all houses are different.   The dealer from whom you purchased your product generally includes a “standard installation” which basically consists of a simple installation of a dish to the roof or side of building at the home where the service is to be used. 


"Standard Installation" rarely includes a pole mount, ground trenching, conduit, or fishing wires down inside walls.  Installation is also usually limited to a height of a one-story roof.  Payment for custom work is paid to the installer and is due when services are rendered unless other advance arrangements are made with your installer.


The following is a list of prices for the most common custom work that might be necessary during the installation or service of your satellite dish products for DirecWay or DirecTV.
