As for the contract with Direct TV, I'm pretty sure I can get out of it...maybe. The house is in a trust and my daughter pays the mortgage. We did this a long time ago after my husband died. I didn't ask my daughter if I could put a Satellite dish on the house, I don't even tell her I was doing it. If I was a renter I would need the owners permission but I don't know how trusts work. Anyway, it would be complicated. Also,they misinformed me about a lot of things. It depends how far they would go to enforce a contract I guess.
