In the RedZone era, it is only natural for football fans to want to watch the action from around the league outside the stadium. It used to be that tailgaters would crank up their car radios, but DISH Network has created the ultimate tool for trunk-based media. At 10 pounds, the Tailgater packs a hell of a punch. The system includes a satellite antenna and a receiver. The portable satellite antenna connects to a receiver – it automatically finds the right satellite – and a television to make sure that asphalt chefs and pre-game drinkers stay entertained. The best part: DISH's pay-as-you-go model for Tailgater service means that you don't have to keep paying for service during the off-season. [$499 with a receiver; dish.com]
