DirecTV has announced that they are now offering their portable satellite service system to current DirecTV customers. Originally introduced at International CES, January 2007, the Sat-Go system allows users to take their DirecTV service with them wherever they go.
The Sat-Go system was designed for users who often travel or go camping. The system is comprised of a DirecTV receiver, 17-inch LCD screen, flat antenna, and rechargeable battery, as well as AC/DC adaptors, all housed in an easy to carry briefcase. The receiver is detachable to allow customers to use it with their home installed dish.
As with the DirecTV dish, the portable unit must have a direct line of sight to the company’s satellites, usually the Southern sky.
The portable briefcase unit is a bit pricey, retailing for $1,499. But this may be a small price to pay to be able to take your DirecTV service wherever you go so as never to miss your favorite programs or to stay current with the latest news from around the world.
