    The NEW DISH Tailgater 4 with Nationwide Coverage!

    The NEW DISH Tailgater 4 is a fully automatic, portable HD satellite antenna that sits on the ground or mounts to the roof of your RV. Based off the #1 selling KING Tailgater, the DISH Tailgater is a economically priced antenna for those who don't need to connect more than 1 TV. When used in combination with a DISH mobile receiver such as the DISH Wally, you can enjoy all of your favorite channels anytime, anywhere with DISH Pay-As-You-Go.

    With Pay As You Go TV, there is no contract required and no activation fees. Best of all, you only pay for the months that you want to use it.

    Customers that DO NOT already have a compatible receiver (ViP 211 or Wally) will want to purchase the DISH Tailgater Bundle system.


    Setup for the DISH Tailgater Portable HDTV System is easy. The Tailgater 4 will automatically find the satellite 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.

    Compatible with DISH HD Solo receivers (Wally®, ViP®211z, ViP211k or 411). Upper Northeast coverage requires use of Wally receiver.

      Easy to do if you follow on screen instructions and call the number. Took about 20 minutes .Hard to hear rep on the other end of the phone.

      Set it down ......Hooked it up.
      A minute later I was watching tv.

    3. Buy a better coax cable  star rating

      Posted by on May 25th 2020

      Had trouble with reception but thought it was our very tree filled campground. Bought a 50’ HD coax cable from Lowes so we could move it higher and low and behold all the channels came on! Did t even have to reposition.

    4. Easy setup  star rating

      Works as promised. Point it towards the southern sky (clear unobstructed view) and start watching TV. Use the Dish for My RV satellite finder app to see exactly where the satellites are. Pleased with this purchase.

      Very simple set up. Literally installed this and the receiver in 20 minutes.

    6. Beats Comcast hands down!!!  star rating

      Posted by on Aug 1st 2019

      Set up took more time than others have stated. Once connected worked great. I even moved the tailgater in between two buildings overnight and the next morning my wife turned on the TV and it worked. Was not in an open area or facing south. You cannot use more than 100 feet of coax cable. Price is great, $7 add on to my home Dish bill.

      Couldn’t be easier to set up and enjoy all of your DISH channels quickly and effortlessly....

      Worked as planned. Instructions were clear and activating the receiver involved talking to very knowledgeable competent service rep. Very good experience.

    9. Great Technical Support  star rating

      Technician was extremely helpful in setting this up

    10. First time user of a portable dish  star rating

      Posted by on Nov 12th 2018

      Was grateful for help in the activation and thought the tech support person was patient with me and my novice experience with the dish. Am still confused with the clear southern sky thing. Using my I Phone compass, I thought I was dead on it but kept getting "complete signal loss, move dish to another location. I did and finally picked up satellites and everything was well. No trees or obstruction seemed to be in direct path and was wondering does just the southern sky need to be clear or other directions such west or east as far as trees? Any guidance will be appreciated.

    11. Works well  star rating

      Posted by on Sep 25th 2018

      Like the light weight and the handle on the side. Also like the size. It fits well in my small motorhome.
