Winegard offers new DISH Playmaker antennas

BURLINGTON, Iowa — Winegard Company introduces the newly redesigned DISH Playmaker and DISH Playmaker Dual Automatic Satellite HDTV Antennas developed exclusively for DISH high definition and standard definition programming.

The new antennas make watching DISH Pay-As-You-Go programming easier than ever, and it’s a great option for outdoor enthusiasts (campers and RVers), sports fans gearing up for tailgating season, or for those who are always on-the-move.

The re-engineered platform offers more performance and flexibility to mobile TV viewers while retaining the user-friendly operation of DISH’s mobile protocol setup wizard. Major changes include a new reflector design that can add up to 20 percent increase in signal strength, the ability to permanently mount to a RV roof with accessory kit (although also available to mount on a tripod), and the addition of the Dual models to allow for multiple receiver viewing.

The Playmaker is effortless to setup and simple-to-use as it automatically finds DISH satellite orbital locations, and self-installs faster than other automatic antennas.

“Winegard’s top priority is offering high-quality, high-performance and versatile antennas that can deliver our customers’ favorite TV programming wherever they go easily and hassle-free, and we’re always looking for innovative ways to bring our products to the next level,’ says Aaron Luttenegger, consumer products national sales manager, Winegard Company.

He adds, “A portable, fully automatic satellite antenna, like the newly redesigned Playmaker, complements an on-the-go lifestyle whether you travel for work or pleasure.”

The DISH Playmaker and DISH Playmaker Dual are compatible with DISH Solo HD receivers, including the DISH Wally and can be utilized with DISH Pay-As-You-Go programming.

DISH allows users to only pay for the months they need with no long-term contracts. The antennas are designed and built in Winegard’s Burlington, Iowa, factory and are backed by a two-year-parts, one-year-labor warranty.
