Winegard Co. has introduced a free mobile app that makes it fast and simple to set the elevation on its Carryout Anser portable satellite TV antenna. According to a press release, the design is “ideal for RVs, tailgating, picnicking, family outings and other outdoor activities.”
“The new Anser app allows antenna owners to use the GPS on their smart phones to set the satellite elevation through a simple three-step process,” said Aaron Engberg, director of mobile products for Winegard. “Using this app, Anser users can typically produce the antenna elevation in less than 15 seconds and can be watching TV in minutes. We developed this app to enhance the mobile Anser experience when watching TV on the DIRECTV, Dish or BellTV satellite networks. It also lets you find the nearest Winegard dealer.”
Anser customers can find the elevation in three easy steps when they activate the app:
• Select elevation guide.
• Select the service provider.
• Select the target satellite.
The app will display the correct elevation to set using the built-in guide on the Anser housing, as well as clear pointing instructions.
The app also offers a dealer locator feature making it easy for customers to find a Carryout Anser nearby. The Winegard Anser iPhone app is available free to download from the Apple® App Store and Google Play.
