Winegard, DISH Develop Mobile HDTV Antenna
Burlington, Iowa-based Winegard Co. has collaborated with DISH to develop and introduce the Pathway X2 Portable Satellite TV antenna exclusively for receiving DISH program content.
According to a press release, the Pathway X2 delivers a true HDTV viewing experience for mobile or outdoor activities such as RVing, tailgating and camping. The new Pathway Antenna is available through Camping World Inc. and RV dealerships nationwide.
“The Pathway X2 represents the next generation of automatic portable satellite TV antennas for DISH customers on the go,” said Marcel Guajardo, lead product manager for Dish Network’s RV and mobile platforms. “Its portable design and easy setup gives our customers an affordable and flexible way to receive and watch high-definition TV even in remote areas.”
Designed with a larger reflector to optimize signal strength, the Pathway X2 has the ability to access “Eastern Arc” locals in HD, a feature other portables aren’t always capable of offering, according to Winegard. With automatic toggling, the user never has to hassle with aiming or re-pointing the antenna.
Key benefits to the Pathway X2 antenna include:
• Automatic pointing to DISH satellites.
• Ability to watch different HD channels on two TVs simultaneously.
• Setup and watch live HDTV in less than 15 minutes
Enhanced signal durability for watching TV across the lower 48 U.S. states.
• Powered through a compatible DISH receiver (required, sold separately).
• Access to all local channels in HD.
• Access to the same DISH HD English channels available to residential subscribers.
Customers have the option to sign up for a 24-month commitment or a monthly pay-as-you-go, no-contract service option. Existing DISH subscribers that already have services at home can simply add the Pathway to their current account and enjoy the same programming on a single bill.
“As a manufacturer of the residential satellite antennas for DISH, Winegard has always had a strong, long standing relationship with them,” said Aaron Engberg, director mobile sales channel for Winegard. “We wanted to take the customer experience to a whole new level of simplicity and so we worked closely with DISH to create a durable, high-performing and weather resistant antenna that is ultra easy to set up and operate.”
