What if installers tell you that satellite won't work for you? - DirecTV

My AT&T contract will be expiring soon and I'm thinking about switching my TV service to Direct TV. The catch is that there are a lot of plants and tall trees in front of my apartment, and I'm told those might interfere with reception or even make it impossible for me to get satellite at all. (No clear view of the sky from my unit or from the units on either side of me.)

Does anyone know what happens if I sign up for Direct TV and the installers are unable to put the satellite in a place that will get reception and that is also allowed by the manager? Would I have to pay for the installer? What happens to a contract in that case? I did not get a clear answer from Direct TV on this, so I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this. (I was considering Direct TV Now until I read about all the problems people are having with it.)

This question, "What if installers tell you that satellite won't work for you?," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
