It is just the dish. I have the same one and I use mine to tailgate at NASCAR and Dolphin games. You have to have a subscription to Direct TV or Dish or whatever the Canadian service is and use your receiver. I just take the one from my bedroom when I need to use it. When boat is at a dock or not moving it works great.
