What people are saying about the Tailgater…

Worked exactly as advertised…..use it at home, campground, in RV, neighbor’s yard, ANYWHERE, with an ACCESS to an inverter, battery, or ac connection….you will view Dish HD at its finest within 10 minutes of Southern sky satellite location……..all done automatically….!!!!

We absolutely love this product; I kick myself for not purchasing it sooner. We really wanted to be able to watch some football games at the cabin and this works perfectly. Great product, quick delivery. We couldn’t be happier with the automatic satellite locating capabilities, that will save a lot of frustration between the wife and I.

Easy setup and no more dealing with antennas hoping I can pull in a local station to view a game while tailgating. Once you’ve done the initial setup and registered everything it becomes plug and play. Excellent reception, doesn’t drop signal. I’ve never set up a more traditional portable dish and have no reason to consider it. No aiming…nothing. Plug it in, set it and forget it! I love tailgating in the fall!!!!!!!
