KING Introduces First-Ever, Clear-Cover Satellite TV Antennas

KING introduces two new, state-of-the-art automatic satellite TV antennas with first-ever clear covers for use with DISH® and DIRECTV® satellite services.  The new, third-generation DISH Tailgater® Pro for DISH (Model VQ4900) and new, second-generation KING Quest Pro for DIRECTV (Model VQ4800) are designed for use as either a portable or a roof-mounted satellite system.

Ideal for RVers, truckers, campers, outdoorsmen, tailgaters and all mobile adventurers looking for live satellite TV. Never again wonder which direction your antenna is pointing. Trees blocking your line of sight to the satellite? The Quest and Tailgater Pro let you know. The clear cover allows you to see exactly where your dish is pointing to simplify troubleshooting and ensure you’re receiving the best signal.

At just 8 lbs. and 13.5” high, the new DISH Tailgater Pro and KING Quest Pro premium antennas are still small and light like previous models, yet provide improved signal reception. The sleek, new, first-ever clear cover is the result of significant effort put into the industrial design.

“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. I love what we create, what we do at KING. I am amazed at the hard-working, forward-looking team we have at KING – we are always innovating and pushing the boundaries in our industry.”

Now you can watch TV like a pro with the new Quest and Tailgater Pro. These new state-of-the-art redesigned antennas, with the first-ever ultramodern, clear cover, it’s yet another first from the innovators at KING.

“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. Not only is this the best-looking antenna on the market, there are also impressive changes to performance to increase signal strength”, said Matt Catlin, VP of Sales at KING. “KING employees endeavor every day to create premium products at an affordable price. Our Pro satellite antenna series is no exception.”

Take your DIRECTV satellite TV service anywhere in the continental U.S. with the KING Quest Pro premium satellite TV antenna.  Portable or roof-mount ready, this small, easy to use, fully-automatic antenna gives you the freedom to take your favorite DIRECTV programming with you on the road, to the great outdoors, or anywhere in between (does not provide service while moving). KING Quest Pro is fully automatic and works right out of the box with a compatible DIRECTV receiver for SD programming. The KING Quest Pro supports multiple TV viewing, so you can stay current on more than one show or live event. SWM adapter required for SWM-only receivers.
