With the WebWatch™ Internet hotspot from Shakespeare®, there’s no need for expensive satellite antennas and data plans. Ideal for coastal and inland boaters, the award-winning, all-in-one Wi-Fi hotspot and high-definition television (HDTV) antenna is changing how people stay connected while on the water. And through March 2018, the company is offering $100 off 2017 prices of its popular Wi-Fi-only WC-1 model.

Engineered for increased long-range reception, WebWatch delivers fast, reliable Internet access for up to 32 devices. With speeds up to 4G from a nearby Wi-Fi signal or cellular signal with a data-only AT&T SIM card, it also provides 3G speeds on T-Mobile, Cricket and other GSM-based networks. Users simply connect to it wirelessly or via an Ethernet cable. WebWatch keeps users online by automatically switching from receiving cell signals to using Wi-Fi hotspots, based on signal strength. This saves money on data charges and provides uninterrupted connectivity.

The WCT-1 version of WebWatch has a built-in HDTV antenna, providing access to free local TV network programming. Its razor-sharp picture quality is unaffected by weather the way satellite signals often are. WebWatch is managed using Shakespeare’s free smartphone app and/or built-in web browser page. It offers the ability to select an Internet source manually, change the WebWatch hotspot’s password and more. The capacity to store Wi-Fi passwords eliminates the need to reconnect every mobile device when switching to a different Wi-Fi source.The antenna boasts universal compatibility and is simple to install. It draws a maximum of 1 amp, running on 12-24V DC. RoHS compliant, WebWatch is 13” high, 11.75” in diameter and weighs 3.85 lbs. The device comes with a 25’ power cord, 25’ Ethernet cable and 25’ coax TV cable.

WebWatch WCT-1 costs $899.95; WebWatch WC-1 without HDTV is $699.95. Check with a Shakespeare dealer for special promotional pricing through March 2018.
