Dish Network Portable satellite Dish


The King Tailgater is a fully automatic portable HD satellite antenna that sits on the ground or permanently mounts to the roof of your RV. This allows you to enjoy all of you favorite DISH programming anywhere, anytime including local networks. Simply connect your Tailgater with a compatible DISH® HD Solo receiver (Wally, ViP211z, ViP211k, ViP211 or 411 - all sold separately) and within minutes you will be watching TV in the parking lot of the big game, on your next big camping trip or even at a picnic.

  • Use as either portable or roof mount (mounting feet included)
  • Supports multiple TV viewing*

With Pay-As-You-Go TV, there is no contract required, so you pay only for the months you use. When the season is over, simply stop your service without penalty.

  • Customers that already have a DISH 411 or ViP 211 series receiver only need to purchase the Tailgater antenna.
  • Customers that DO NOT already have a compatible receiver must purchase the system.

How it Works

The King Tailgater Portable HDTV System consists of a fully-automatic, portable satellite antenna and is powered by an HD receiver through a coax cable. It's easy to set up and automatically finds the right satellite for your DISH signal. Portable and lightweight, making it easy to carry from one outdoor activity to the next. And you can use as either a portable antenna or roof mount (mounting feet included). Have more than one TV? The NEW King Tailgater supports multiple TV viewing.**

Note: The Tailgater only works in the 48 contiguous United States.

**Programming must be on the same satellite


Setup for the King Tailgater Portable HDTV System is easy. After connecting your devices as instructed in the Receiver Installation Instructions, 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.

In The Box


International channels are now only broadcasting on satellite 118w and are no longer on the eastern arc. As a result, there are no mobile antennas capable of picking up these channels.

Programming lineup will be limited and/or not identical on the Secondary receiver. Complete signal loss can occur on the Secondary receiver if the Main receiver switches to programming on a different satellite that does not carry the same channel. However, the Secondary receiver can be re-configured to receive the same programming from any current satellite that the Main receiver is locked onto and is viewing live TV.
