In 1996, the Federal Communications Commission adopted rules for over-the-air reception devices. The rules prohibit restrictions on a property owner or tenant’s right to install, maintain or use an antenna to receive video programming from direct broadcast satellites, broadband radio services and television broadcast stations. However, there are exceptions to the rules, including provisions for safety and preservation of historic areas, according to the FCC Web site.
