Englewood, Colo. -
Dish Network has introduced the Tailgater, a lightweight, portable satellite TV antenna for
watching TV while tailgating, camping, RV-ing or engaging in other outdoor activities.

The Tailgater
weighs 10 pounds; automatically locates satellite positions, which means that
there's no need for manual antenna adjustment; and connects to a small Dish Network
set-top box and TV.

"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 setup 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," Bahr said.

The Tailgater
costs $350 and works with the company's ViP 211k (suggested retail $149)
single-tuner HD receiver. 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.
