Dish and internet

The options for equipment and services are so overwhelming I wonder who has the advice for the options they have? I'm thinking the DISH tailgater package with the $7 add on monthly to our home system would be sufficient. The bundle with tailgater or the KING antenna seem OK but since I want to out this on a movable stand I'm not sure which way to go. I am open to changing what I pick. HELP !!!!

If you already have DISH at home, just take a receiver from home (one that stands alone) and get the Tailgator. Saves you the extra $7.

There are several compatible carryout antennas. We use the Playmaker single output satellite antenna but it is available with dual output. Have not had any issues with it. You can use your receiver from home if it is either a Wally/VIP211K/VIP211Z/VIP211/VIP411. I think that's all. The VIP211K is the only one with a coaxial output and HDMI. The others have only HDMI. Our unit is not wired for HDMI so we use the VIP211K receiver from home and the existing coaxial runs within the unit. We only view SD that way but it is fine for us. Wireless HDMI is also a popular option when it's impractical to install HDMI cabling.

As far as I know, the Dish Tailgator does NOT transmit Internet signal, just tv signal.
Your thread title says Internet, NOT tv.

Yup.....missed that!

You'll need internet service either through your cell phone carrier (hot spot...most secure) or the CG's WiFi if available. And, it prpbably won't be the best and certainly not secure.
