DISH Network has announced two new portable satellite recievers that will allow people to take their Dish on the road. Two models are available, one for single channel watching, and another that allows for simultaneously watching separate channels on multiple devices. Note that this is a different service than their DISH Anywhere mobile app, which is for streaming DISH content to mobile devices.

DISH is helping out RVers, tailgaters and campers, with two lightweight, portable antennae that deliver HDTV for outdoor activities: the Pathway X1 and X2.
Pathway X1 offers HD TV while on the go, while Pathway X2 offers the ability to watch different HD channels on two TVs simultaneously. They include automatic self-pointing satellite acquisition technology for set-up without professional installation.
Both devices provide access to every HD English channel available to residential subscribers, as well as SiriusXM music channels within the America's Top 120 package or higher.
"Must-see games, shows and entertainment - only DISH delivers portable HD satellite antennas that make it easy and affordable for consumers to enjoy all their programming including their SiriusXM music stations wherever life takes them," said Bassil El-Khatib, DISH vice president of product management. "The Pathway X1 and X2 for DISH are the latest in portable satellite technology that brings the big game to the big screen while on the go."
Consumers can choose to receive DISH's programming on a monthly basis with no minimum term commitment. While a DISH home satellite subscription is not required, existing DISH customers can simply add a Pathway system to their current account for $7 per month.
