DISH Tailgater Bundle: Take TV on the Road

Whether you’re a sports fan or a movie lover, the DISH Tailgater Bundle with ViP 211k HD Receiver allows you to enjoy your television programming outside the confines of your living room. Using your existing DISH subscription or the Pay-As-You-Go no contract service, you can pair this bundle with a TV and a power outlet, and you’re on your way to watching television at a campsite or in the stadium parking lot of your favorite team. If you thought leaving the house meant leaving behind the creature comforts of home, think again.

Game-day tailgaters will appreciate this bundle’s 10-lb compact satellite and its simple setup process. Just secure the Tailgater satellite with its security bracket and connect it to the bundled HD receiver. The included 50-foot RG6 cable conveniently powers the satellite antenna, eliminating the need for an additional power cord and giving you the flexibility of choosing the right location to secure your satellite. Once you’ve gotten it connected, the satellite will automatically locate the proper satellite signal, allowing you to spend less time setting up, and more time enjoying the action or grilling your game-time meals.

The Tailgater satellite also has a built-in carrying handle so it’s easy to take with you, and the handle can be used to attach an optional padlock or security cable to keep your investment safe. In the event of inclement weather, the satellite’s weather-resistant cover will help the unit to endure the elements. The Tailgater satellite is designed for use in the 48 contiguous United States and it is compatible with the included ViP 211k HD receiver, or with the 211 and 411 receivers (sold separately). Some bundles are paired with the ViP 211z model receiver. After installing the Tailgater bundle, you can begin watching TV in less than 15 minutes, although the initial setup may take a little longer due to the activation process. However, if you have an RV, you can easily attach the Tailgater to your existing external satellite input.

The bundle’s ViP 211k HD receiver supports both high-definition and standard-definition broadcasts and it includes a composite audio/video and an HDMI cable. Depending on your geographical location, you can also view local programming—and to keep it as close to home as possible. DISH also allows you to change your service address free of charge, which gives you the ability to get local channels wherever you are. For an additional charge from Dish Network, you can use the ViP 211k receiver to pause and record live television by connecting an independently powered (1TB recommended) hard drive to the rear USB 2.0 port on the receiver.

This portable dish-in-a-box is a great, easy way to bring the comfort of your living room to any activity that takes you out of the house. Whether you’re an avid camper, tailgater, or you’re just looking to get away from it all-without sacrificing your favorite programs, the DISH Tailgater Bundle affords an easy, all-in-one solution.
