At this year’s CES, Winegard showed off the Pathway X1, a portable satellite antenna for the DISH network. It proved impressive enough to win a 2015 CES Innovations Honoree Award. The antenna is fully HD capable and will work with one or two Television sets. It’s fully portable, but also has an optional roof mounting kit. You could bring it with you RVing, or to your summer cabin, and receive all your DISH programming you would at home for a $7 monthly fee. The Pathway X1 will work with Solo HD Receivers and automatically picks up signal.
The Winegard Pathway X1 is $499 or $549 with HD receiver.
Winegard Pathway X1 Portable Satellite TV Antenna Wins 2015 CES Innovations Honoree Award
Compact, ultra-portable and 100% automatic satellite system enables consumers to watch live TV programming anywhere with a DISH subscription or pay-as-you-go programming
LAS VEGAS 2015 International CES January 22, 2015 Winegard Company, a developer of antenna and satellite systems for consumer and commercial applications, announces the Winegard Pathway X1 mobile TV satellite system has won a 2015 CES Innovations Honoree Award. The CES Innovations Awards is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.
The Pathway X1 is compatible with DISH HD programming, which enables consumers to quickly and easily access live sports and premium movie channels in HD, anywhere their travels take them in the U.S. As the smallest satellite TV antenna on the market today, the Pathway X1 offers a simple, user-friendly setup and operation so you can watch HD TV wherever you are, including recreational vehicles at campgrounds or tailgating parties.
Key benefits to the Pathway X1 antenna include:
- Easier to handle, weighing in at just 10 pounds
- Automatically finds DISH satellites
- Single cable setup antenna powered through receiver via one coax cable
- Perfect solution for 1 TV, but also supports two coax ports for 2 TVs
- Setup and watch HD TV in less than 15 minutes
- 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)
- HD Ready and compatible with DISH HD Solo Receivers with optional pay-as-you-go monthly programming (programming packages sold separately)
- Customers that already subscribe to DISH at home can add the Pathway X1 system (antenna and DISH receiver) to their account for only $7 per month and enjoy their same programming
- Enjoy SiriusXM channels included in your AT 120 or higher programming package at no additional cost
All the televisions and entertainment systems for mobile applications are useless if the user cannot enjoy HD programming because theyre in a stadium parking lot or in a national park, so the Winegard Pathway X1 certainly deserves its place alongside the other CES Innovations Award winners, says Aaron Engberg, Product Manager, Winegard. Like all Winegard products, the Pathway X1 is made in the U.S., and its the perfect technology tool for helping travelers enjoying those very American traditions of the road trip and the tailgate party.
DISHs programming is available to Winegard customers in a wide range of subscription or pay-as-you-go packages, so users have the flexibility they need to ensure they can watch their favorite channels whenever and wherever, says Jimshade Chaudhari, director of product management, DISH Network L.L.C. One cord to connect your DISH receiver to the fully automatic Pathway X1, and the convenience of no long-term programming commitments. It doesnt get any easier than that.
