How it Works

The Tailgater Portable Antenna connects to the HD Solo Receiver using a single coax cable (included) and brings live satellite television service from inside your home to the great outdoors.


Setup for the Tailgater Portable HDTV System is easy. After connecting your devices as instructed in the User's Guide and Quick Reference Guide, 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.
