Be sure to ALWAYS mention to the realtors and owners that you want to be able to get ALL TV reception......that you will be wanting OTA, not just Cable or Satellite, and that you will be wanting access to any satellite provider you choose. Make them show you (and explain to you) the rules, up front.
If enough people ask, maybe they will start making provisions for OTA and Satellite services through a proper SMATV system on their buildings. If no one asks, they figure "Cable is good enough", or "DirecTV is plenty", or "DISH Network is fine", or even "just use rabbit ears, read a book, watch videos, stare out the window,......".
There are many options out there. Don't let them keep you from them.
