The Carryout G2 receives DISH, DIRECTV, and Bell TV programming for the ultimate in provider versatility.

“The Carryout G2 pushes the ‘size-versus-performance-trade-off’ common to satellite antennas to the limit,” said Aaron Engberg, director mobile sales channel for Winegard, in a news release.

“Reducing the size by 40 percent from our original Carryout, without a single compromise in performance, is truly what makes Winegard the leader in antenna design. Consumers want smaller, faster, better, and Winegard has once again delivered with the Carryout G2.”

The Carryout G2 portable satellite antenna is fully automatic and is quick and easy to set up.

Equipped with two coax ports, the G2 supports two receivers so you can watch different programming from the same satellite on two TVs at once.

The antenna is powered through a 12-volt output (included), but can be connected to a 110-volt outlet with a power converter (sold separately).

Key benefits to the Carryout G2 antenna include:

  • Fully automatic antenna eliminates the need for manually aiming/finding satellite signals
  • Compatible with all major satellite TV programming providers
  • Works with most satellite receiver models, including activated receivers from home
  • Backed by a two-year parts, one year labor limited warranty
