Can someone shed some light on Dish's new portable dish and receiver for tailgating. I can't talk on phone due to some throat cancer issues and the Dish website kept looping me back to things I didn't think made sense. I am not currently a Dish customer. I tailgate at South Carolina games which is in the Columbia, SC tv market. I live 70 miles away in another market. Here's my questions: Do I have to buy the portable dish and receiver? I know it says you have to on the website, but I'm not a Dish customer. I am primarily wanting access to HD channels showing other college football games on the Saturdays during September, October, and November. I don't want to have to buy a package of channels that will never be watched. I've flagged over 2 different Dish vans in my local area and asked both installers (because I can talk...just not on the phone) about my options, and both times they shrugged their shoulders. Can someone throw me a bone here and give me some advice on my subject topic. I'm thanking anyone in advance for taking the time to respond.
