Winegard to showcase new Pathway X1 and X2 antennas

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Winegard announced today it is displaying two new satellite TV antennas developed exclusively for DISH programming at the National RV Trade Show through Thursday at Booth 27  at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

On display will be the Pathway X1 and the Pathway X2 portable satellite TV antennas, both just introduced to the consumer market. The units work with existing DISH subscriptions, as well as the convenient and popular pay-as-you-go service.

The Pathway X2 represents the next generation of automatic portable satellite antennas that delivers the true HDTV experience during outdoor activities such as RVing, camping and tailgating, said spokesperson Jim Thebeau.

Key benefits to the Pathway X2 antenna include:

  • Optimized for two receiver seamless viewing (made possible by 72.7˚ reception)
  • Larger 18-inch reflector for the best portable satellite experience throughout United States and in all weather conditions
  • First portable to access both Eastern and Western Arcs for maximum coverage and high-definition reception
  • 100 percent automatic. Faster setup and satellite acquisition with the antenna powered through customized DISH receiver interface
  • Single cable set up – coax cable hook up to receiver
  • HD ready and compatible with DISH pay-as-you-go programming (programming packaging sold separately)

Similar to the, Pathway X2, the Pathway X1 is a compact, smaller satellite TV antenna. Requiring 40 percent less space than Winegard’s popular Carryout GM-1518, the X1 is ultra lightweight and ideal for the “on the go” lifestyle, said Thebeau.

Key benefits to the Pathway X1 antenna include:

  • Fastest acquisition time of any other DISH automatic portable satellite TV antenna
  • Unique ability to permanently convert the portable to a roof mounted antenna without having to pay the high price of a roof mounted antenna (roof kit sold separately)
  • Easier to handle, weighing in at just 10 pounds
  • Single cable set up – coax cable hook up to receiver
  • HD Ready and compatible with DISH pay-as-you-go programming (programming packaging sold separately)

Both Pathway antennas are for stationary use only, meaning users cannot use them to watch live television while traveling down the road. Both Pathway antennas are compatible with DISH Solo HD receivers (411, ViP 211, ViP 211k, and ViP 211z) with pay-as-you-go programming available in SD/HD packages. Users simply enter the state in which they are located and the antenna will automatically tune in and toggle between the appropriate satellites.

Consumers can choose between purchasing the antenna alone or the antenna with receiver bundle for both the X1 and X2.  Winegard offers a warranty of 2 years parts, 1 year labor.

Pathway antennas are available and shipping.
