Tailgater Satellite Dish - Portable HDTV Antenna (VQ2500)
We're Sorry !!
These Tailgaters are not
Please consider the latest, updated Tailgater model.
The Tailgater Portable Satellite HDTV System offers you a new way to take your TV outside wherever and whenever you want to go. It's ideal for tailgating, camping, RVing and even backyard BBQs! Weighing only 10 pounds, it's easy to carry from one adventure to another, bringing live satellite TV to all of your favorite outdoor activities.
The Tailgater Portable HDTV System consists of the Tailgater Satellite Antenna and an HD Solo Receiver (Model VIP211Z - New! See below - sold separately). Together with DISH Network television service, you can take your favorite shows with you on all of your outdoor adventures.Add to your home DISH Network service or try the 'pay-as-you-go' service option. Pay only while on the road on a monthly basis. No start-stop fees.
Designed in conjunction with DISH Network, the Tailgater system is a fully automatic, portable satellite antenna that provides quick and easy access to a wide selection of premium HD channels. A customized menu screen automatically appears on the TV when the Tailgater and receiver are connected, and the receiver is automatically configured for mobile use. From the on-screen menu, RVers can simply select their state, and then scan. Within minutes they are locked on with access to all your favorite DISH Network HD channels. Being a Solo receiver, only one channel can be viewed at a time. If a channel is selected that is on a different satellite, the Tailgater will find that satellite and lock onto that signal for the new channel and satellite.
Setup for the Tailgater Portable HDTV System is easy because of the single coaxial cable connection between the antenna and the receiver. Additional power or control cables are not needed, however 110v AC power is required for the TV and Receiver. Given that most RVs already have a portable satellite antenna input, connecting the Tailgater to the receiver inside an RV is very straightforward.. After connecting the devices, follow the on-screen instructions. The Tailgater will automatically find the satellite orbital locations for your DISH Network programming. When you're done watching, simply power down the Tailgater and receiver, disconnect the cables, and take your system with you. It's portable and lightweight, so it's easy to carry from one outdoor activity to the next. Click here to view setup instructions.
