Winegard Co. has introduced the Pathway X1 satellite HD TV antenna developed exclusively for DISH high definition and standard definition programming.

According to a press release, the Pathway X1 portable satellite antenna is the smallest satellite antenna on the market today. It is 40% smaller than the popular Winegard Carryout, weighing just 10 pounds, and is also the only portable satellite antenna available that offers the ability to convert to a permanent roof mount antenna. Consumers will also appreciate the user-friendly operation and 15-minute setup.

“Expanding our Pathway family has been a top priority in order to offer our mobile customers smaller, lighter, faster and automatic satellite antenna options,” said Aaron Engberg, director mobile sales channel for Burlington, Iowa-based Winegard. “The X1 contains the latest technology available and is super easy to setup and operate. For Winegard, it’s all about improving convenience and ease of use for our customers, as well as providing them with the highest quality TV viewing experience – wherever they travel.”

Key benefits to the Pathway X1 antenna include:

• Automatically finds DISH satellites.

• Single cable setup – antenna powered through receiver via one coax cable.

• Perfect solution for one TV, but also supports two coax ports for two TVs.

• 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).

Both Pathway X1 and X2 antennas are compatible with DISH Solo HD receivers (models 411, ViP 211, ViP 211k, and ViP 211z) and with pay-as-you-go programming available in SD/HD packages. Using the remote, customers simply select the state in which they are located and the antenna will automatically locate the DISH satellites.

If mounted to the vehicle roof, the Pathway X1 is for stationary use only. Receiver bundle packages (antenna plus DISH receiver) are available for both the X1 and X2. Additionally, Winegard offers a two years parts, one year labor warranty on the Pathway models.
