Catch the Game Anywhere.

Carry our Tailgater® Portable Satellite Antenna to the park, the mountains, or the parking lot before the big game, and enjoy live HD TV wherever the fun takes you.

With Pay-As-You-Go TV, there is no contract required, so you pay only for the months you use. When the season is over, simply stop your service without penalty. Order Tailgater today from Craig Connections, Inc. in Denton, TX.

The Tailgater® Takes TV Outside

DISH Tailgater

How it Works

The Tailgater® Portable Satellite Antenna is like a TV valet - it brings you service when you need it. Connect the Tailgater® to a compatible DISH® receiver and start watching TV wherever you are - in the parking lot of the big game, on a camping trip, or picnicking by a stream. Enjoy the same English or DishLATINO programming packages you enjoy at home when you're on the go - just add the Tailgater to your existing account. Some restrictions may apply.
