att does not do this

 

if you want it removed, i suggest leaving the base plate to avoid leaks

 

go up, look at how its connected, then make a decision of what should be removed

If you want it removed, you do it yourself. Just leave mounting plate to avoid leaks.

 

The receiving dish, like most everything else that was installed, you own. So DirecTV never takes it back or uninstalls it. Only the receiver/client boxes are returnable, unless too old a model.

You can have a roofer remove and repair the roof for $600.

Not everybody charges the same cost across the country for such work, so best to check local pricing. Though perhaps the OP took care of this since last year when they posted.

Probably true. I just had a roof inspection done during the sale of my home and Roof Doctors gave the quote for $600 June 2020 in SF Bay Area.

Dish was mounted on top of the roof over the eves. I noticed that my neighbor has one mounted under the eves and the mounting post curls around the gutter to extend above the roof. Their old mounting bracket is still attached to the shingles.

I look forward to the part of the revolution where CEOs of huge companies are punished publicly for their greed, sociopathy and hatred of the customers who made them rich. The ATT CEO would be close to the front of the line.

Bitter much?

I've reached that age where my brain went from "You probably shouldn't say that"

...to...

"What the heck, let's see what happens."

Rivegauche610,

    Don't be a hater. 

You can always do business with someone else or start your own not for profit communications company.

Such a random post in a old thread about removing a dish that you as a customer owns.

 

Companies are out to make a profit. They provide a service and expect to be paid for it. They are not charities, and certainly TV is not an essential service. So shop around for what works for you. Anyway greed is a two-way street. Those who expect services handed to them for free or below cost are greedy themselves.

 

In the end it is up to the customer to mange what is in their budget.

Trumpanzees seems to be in charge here so all posts as yours can be seen as a characteristic way of behaving. It isn’t my dish, never was, was here on the house property. I see it doesn’t take much to be an ATT “expert,” here, condescension, primarily, but stupidity, secondarily, is evidently a much-traveled two way street. I can leave the forum without an answer, but here you remain to deal with more old people like me. I get the better of that deal for sure.

Upon install the dish becomes part of the customer's property. When you acquire the property and the prior owner didn't remove the dish, then at that point the dish is now yours. It is up to you if you remove it or leave it where it is.

 

You jump into a post, seemingly at random, and throw around insults and claims of "hatred" with no context. That is the only kind of "monkeying" around seen here. I would suggest leaving politics (your juvenile "trumpanzees" comment) at the door as that has no place in how the service works or their billing model.

 

Bottom line the dish is customer owned and passes on to the new property owner if it wasn't removed. So yes, it is now yours.
