DISH Network’s Tailgater portable satellite dish system is the lowest priced and easiest to use system on the market. The Tailgater has been honored by the presitgious International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards that are sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)Â®, the producer of the International CES, the worldâ€™s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a pre-eminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 32 categories.
The Tailgater is the lowest- priced portable satellite dish available and the easiest to use. Weighing in at just 10 pounds, the Tailgater automatically locates satellite positions so there is no need for manual adjustment. The Tailgater easily connects to a small, sleek DISH set-top box and TV. Within minutes, customers are able to enjoy their favorite channels in high definition. Ira Bahr, chief marketing officer for DISH Network, has said â€œThis award from CEA recognizes the Tailgater as an innovative solution to bring high definition television outdoors. Tailgaters across the country have wanted an easy way to watch their games in HD, and now they can. The Tailgaterâ€™s simple set-up combined with full access to DISH Networkâ€™s programming packages at convenient month-to-month pricing makes it the best â€˜TV-on-the-goâ€™ option for outdoor enthusiasts.â€
