Dish Playmaker Newbie Question

Recommended Posts

Hi all. New to the forum and new to mobile satellite TV. 

I just found a nice deal on a Dish Playmaker antenna at a garage sale. It's the one in the attached pic. Now I'd like to finish outfitting the setup for use when I go camping. What else do I need? Looks to me like I'll need:

  • a receiver and remote
  • a tripod
  • coax
  • a Dish Playmaker subscription. What else do I need to make it happen?

Also, any good suggestions for websites on setup and operation would be great!!!

Thanks for your help!

I did the same as you and got a good deal on a dome. Then searched for the best price on a receiver with remote. Bought a 50ft cable to connect and called Dish to set up. Phone Number came with the Wally and was surprised how little the extra cost was with my existing account. Extremely easy to use and should have done it years ago instead of fighting with my metal dish on a tripod. Only problem I found is with the dome I got only one TV can be hooked up to it, Our second TV now uses the antenna on the roof for stations available.
