I live in a building that has a contract with Comcast and refuses to allow its residents to use satellite dishes, which I guess is fine. I think they’re ugly, and the industry has done little to disguise them. In fact, during a recent Best Buy trip I noticed one carrier is now branding its customers’ dishes. Gauche.
But one company is trying to improve the looks of the dish with a new antenna called the Squish. It’s a flat panel reflector that sits flush with the side of your house, with the actual receiver hidden by something else like plants.
It’s still not perfect but it definitely beats having a birdbath and microphone pointing up in the air contraption bolted next to your bathroom window. Just sayin’.
