Tailgating Power / TV

In anticipation of the upcoming football season, I'm looking to step up my tailgate. I have a 32" LED TV I'd like to set up in the parking lot to watch the pregame shows. I just picked up a digital antenna. I think I'll be able to pick up the signals since I'll be close to NY. I'm looking to go to Metlife stadium. I know others do this on a biweekly basis with Satellite dishes, full blown campers and whatnot. What would you suggest for powering the TV? I found this on amazon and might give it a go: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009YR00MI/...=IA89LSLVXH1Y2

I might do some testing in parks and other areas to see how the signal picks up. Does anyone have experience with this type of setup or at Metlife? I guess a satellite dish / receiver might be the best way to go. Another option is to bring a laptop, but I think I'd need a slingbox or something. Thanks for the help!

i've been using a 750 watt power inverter at our tailgates. it runs my receiver with 2 channels at 100 watts, 42" lcd, and satellite dish. i just make sure to start the car every once in awhile and run it for 5-10 minutes. i connect it directly to the car battery. make sure to carry extra fuses for the unit, never had one blown, but just in case.
