KING recently introduced two new automatic satellite TV antennas with first-ever clear covers for use with Dish and DirecTV satellite services. The third-generation Dish Tailgater Pro for Dish (model VQ4900), and second-generation KING Quest Pro for DirecTV (model VQ4800) are designed for use as either a portable or a roof-mounted satellite system.
The Quest and Tailgater Pro will let users know if a tree is blocking the satellite’s line of sight. The clear cover allows users to see exactly where the dish is pointing to help troubleshooting.
The Dish Tailgater Pro and KING Quest Pro premium antennas weigh 8 pounds and are 13.5 inches high.
“We’ve worked for some time on this passionate project. We labored over this state-of-the-art design and worked with a team of industrial design engineers to optimize signal reception, while enhancing the overall user experience,” said Craig Miller, president of KING. “Making the antenna with an industry first, clear smoke tinted dome, while improving signal reception capabilities was no small task, but we did it.”
“As we do with all our products, KING again listened to our customers. We have spent several years working on a process to make an antenna visible within a ‘smoke’ tinted dome,” said Matt Catlin, VP of sales at KING.”
KING Quest Pro is fully automatic and works out of the box with a compatible DirecTV receiver for SD programming. The KING Quest Pro supports multiple TV viewing. SWM adapter required for SWM-only receivers.
The Dish Tailgater Pro (model VQ4900) antenna has a suggested retail price of $379, and the KING Quest Pro (model VQ4800) has a suggested retail price of $549. The company will begin shipping the new antennas this month.
