If you spend a lot of time camping, tailgating, or doing other things that requires you to be away from your favorite TV shows, Dish has a couple interesting new products. The new products are the next generation portable satellite receivers called the Pathway X1 and X2.
The X1 is the smallest portable antenna available today. The difference between the X1 and the X2 is that the X2 can feed two TVs at the same time. Dish says that a home satellite subscription isn't required and you can use a pay as you go plan to get access to programming.
Existing subscribers can add the Pathway to their account for $7 per month and enjoy the same programming. Both of the receivers support HD English channels available to regular subscribers. Both are lightweight and self-pointing that will get a signal in less than 15 minutes.
The Pathway X2 is available for $449 alone or bundled with a ViP 211z receiver for $499. The X1 costs $499 or $549 when bundled with a receiver. This might be the perfect way to keep up with your favorite teams while spending a weekend at the hinting cabin or elsewhere.
“Must-see games, shows and entertainment – only DISH delivers portable HD satellite antennas that make it easy and affordable for consumers to enjoy all their programming including their SiriusXM music stations wherever life takes them,” said Bassil El-Khatib, DISH vice president of product management. “The Pathway X1 and X2 for DISH are the latest in portable satellite technology that brings the big game to the big screen while on the go.”
