Now I don’t have one of these…YET (hint hint DISH Network…), but according to their announcement, the antenna, priced at $350 is supposedly one of the lowest-priced portable satellite antennas on the market and is quite easy to use.
How it Works
In conjunction with the ViP 211k single-tuner HD receiver, the Tailgater will automatically locate satellite positions, which means that there’s no need for manual antenna adjustment. That in itself is a major score !!
For added flexibility, DISH Network offers customers a convenient solution that allows them to pay month-to-month for programming, ensuring they only pay for the service when in use. Current DISH Network customers can use their existing account to service the Tailgater system. An additional outlet fee may apply.
“Tailgaters across the country have wanted an easy way to watch their games in HD, and now they can through DISH Network’s Tailgater – the best value for a portable satellite TV antenna on the market,” said Ira Bahr, Chief Marketing Officer for DISH Network. “The Tailgater’s simple set-up combined with full access to DISH Network’s programming packages at convenient month-to-month pricing makes it the best ‘TV-on-the-go’ option for outdoor enthusiasts.”
