Find a secure spot for the dish antenna on your terrace or your balcony. It must be unobstructed and should be the right angle to receive signal.  Assemble the dish according to Skew and Azimuth settings and then connect a cable to the dish.  Mount it on a building or a pole. Make sure that you run a direct cable line between the receiver and the satellite dish.
