BURLINGTON, Iowa – (August 28, 2012) – Winegard, the pioneer in television antenna design and development, today introduced the Anser™, the newest member of the Carryout® family of portable satellite TV antennas.
The Carryout Anser sports a one-of-a-kind design and is ideal for RVs, tailgating, picnicking, family outings and other outdoor activities. Users simply set the elevation provided by the receiver and plug it in. After the antenna automatically finds the satellite, unplug the antenna power cable and start watching TV.
"We're introducing the Anser to provide consumers with a simple satellite TV solution at a very affordable cost," said Aaron Engberg, Director of Mobile Products for Winegard. "In today's hyper-mobile world, we like to be entertained and in touch with our favorite sports teams and shows constantly. The Anser is highly portable and requires no assembly."
This hybrid automatic portable satellite antenna receives DISH® HD programming from a single satellite, 72°, without toggling between several DISH satellites as on some other automatic antennas. The Anser also pulls in DIRECTV® standard programming from satellite 101°. It's also compatible with Bell TV™ in Canada.
The Carryout Anser comes with an easy grip carrying handle and a security eyelet that is molded into the base. A 25 ft. 12 volt power cable and a 25 ft. coax cable are included for easy outdoor positioning. An optional 12 volt to 110 volt converter is available, as well as a Carryout tripod mount, sold separately.
For a limited time, new DIRECTV customers can take advantage of a Winegard new customer $150 mail-in rebate.
A pioneer in antenna, auto signal acquisition and tracking technology, Winegard has designed more than 1,000 different antenna models with over 60 U.S. patents granted.
The Anser will be available at retailers and RV dealerships nationwide in September and has an MSRP of $449.00. As with all Winegard products, the Anser can be found at www.winegard.com with other products made in the U.S.A.
