    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.

    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.
