When it comes to ensuring satellite-television signal reception, the bigger the antenna, the better. Intellian's 20-inch, television-receive-only (TVRO) i5 antenna ($5,995) was designed to let boaters cruise farther afield without worrying about missing the big game or season finale.

Much like Intellian’s other i-Series TVRO antennas, the i5 has two-axis stabilization, allowing the antenna to track and receive signals in rough seas. Better still, the i5 offers Intellian’s Wide Range Search algorithm, helping the antenna find its signal quickly. Proprietary technology called Dynamic Beam Tilting provides instant beam analysis that helps the antenna avoid skips or loss of service while mitigating noise by reducing the amount of time the antenna’s motors need to run.
