I'm sure you can try a different address and be eligible. For what it's worth I live in a condo(don't know if having a unit number helps) and live in Ma. Probably would need to be my billing address, though. I read that some people have called DirecTV and offered reasons as to why their house can't get sattelite and had success. This is ultimately what it comes down to. If you are in a location that doesn't allow satellites then you can order this. If not... Tough, go order DirecTV. My location definitely allows satellites, they're several of them in my development. I'd think you could just say you rent and that the owner of your home won't allow a satellite.
