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.

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 the DISH Wally receiver.


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

    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.

    1. Finally  star rating

      Posted by on Sep 26th 2021

      I have been carrying around a dish tailgater 3 and could only use it in a couple places that we go. With this dish tailgater 4 I can get the eastern and the western satellites so I finally was able to watch tv while I was camping!! It worked extremely well with simple setup on top of the king tripod. Very nice combination!! I would recommend buying both of these!!

    2. Easy to do  star rating

      Posted by on Nov 20th 2020

      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.

    3. So simple  star rating

      Posted by on Aug 27th 2020

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

    4. Less than expected  star rating

      Posted by on Jun 18th 2020

      The tailgator doesn't work unless you have a completely un obstructed view. I would have thought twice about the purchase if I'd known this

    5. 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.

    6. Easy setup  star rating

      Posted by on May 25th 2020

      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.

    7. Really easy set up  star rating

      Posted by on Sep 10th 2019

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

    8. 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.

    9. Tailgater & Wally Bundle  star rating

      Posted by on Apr 8th 2019

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

      I’m 62 and I had no trouble whatsoever setting this up

    10. Easy install  star rating

      Posted by on Mar 14th 2019

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

    11. Great Technical Support  star rating

      Posted by on Dec 17th 2018

      Technician was extremely helpful in setting this up

    12. Should have waited  star rating

      Posted by on Dec 6th 2018

      Now that I have bought my Tailgater antenna and the receiver I'm getting all kinds of emails offering me free carrying cases other good things if I make a purchase. What good does that do me?

      The initial setup took way longer than I expected but now everything seems to be working okay. Some of your representatives gave me misinformation, such as my needing to get
      the extended warranty at the time of purchase I think that's wrong.

    13. 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.

    14. Works well  star rating

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