Seasonal basis programming service now offered with new ViP211k HD Satellite Receiver/Tuner
BURLINGTON, IOWA – (Nov. 29, 2010) – WINEGARD COMPANY announced today that the Winegard dealer network is offering a Pay-As-You-Go programming service through DISH Network. The Pay-As-You-Go service features a DISH Network ViP211k satellite receiver, and gives mobile customers the ability to purchase DISH Network programming 30 days at a time. Customers also have the flexibility to stop and start service as needed.
“RVers, campers, tailgaters and truckers have long desired seasonal or temporary service without having to pay for service for an entire year, and we see Pay-As-You-Go programming as a great option,” said Aaron Engberg, director of Mobile Products, Winegard Company. “Often times, customers struggle in finding, installing and activating receivers. As an authorized RV channel distributor, Winegard will provide this customer segment with easy access to receivers and programming at our dealers nationwide. Trained technicians can also assist with installation and activation.”
“Now our customers can enjoy DISH Network programming in their RV, or at a campsite or favorite tailgate spot at the best value in the industry,” said Amir Ahmed, senior vice president of Sales for DISH Network. “DISH Network’s agreement with Winegard allows us to provide seasonal customers with the ability to pay only for the months of service they actually use.”
The compact ViP211k is a single-tuner satellite receiver that works with DISH Network-compatible satellite antennas on both SD and HD televisions. Only with DISH Network can customers enjoy in-motion HD programming (requires an in-motion compatible antenna). The ViP211k is offered for $149 MSRP.
