Air TV Announces a New ‘Local Channels DVR’ Public Beta With Sling TV





Today after months of waiting for Air TV announced their new DVR service for their Air TV players. Now you will be able to record straight from your antenna to your Air TV player.

“AirTV continuously pushes to meet consumer demand for a better cord cutting and OTA experience,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “With the introduction of Local Channels DVR and the existing Sling TV Cloud DVR on AirTV Player, customers can now watch and record both OTA and OTT programs, imitating traditional pay-TV for a fraction of the cost.”

Air TV first launched back in early 2017 and integrates Sling TV, Netflix, YouTube and thousands of apps from the Google Play Store with free local OTA channels on one platform.

Local Channels DVR features include:

  • Storage: When connected to a dedicated external hard drive, AirTV Player can store up to 1TB of recorded OTA content.
  • Integrated DVR menu: Recorded OTA content will appear in the same menu as Sling TV Cloud DVR, indicated by an OTA icon to differentiate it from Sling TV recordings. The integrated DVR menu can be sorted by date, alphabetically or based on whether the show has been watched.
  • Functionality: AirTV Player customers can record one show at once and set single-episode or series recordings in the menu. Users can pause, rewind or fast forward Local Channels DVR recordings.
