For several months now we have been hearing rumors of a new device called AirTV. This device would combine Dish’s Sling TV service, Netflix, and over-the-air television. Today, Sling TV officially announced the AirTV Player, and it is an Android TV streaming device that they pitching as “a single platform” for on-demand streaming, internet TV, and over-the-air local channels.

You can install any Android apps you want, but the preinstalled options are Sling TV, Netflix, and YouTube. The AirTV Player also supports 4K streaming from services that offer UHD resolution. The AirTV Player is available today starting at $99 or $129 with a bundled OTA adapter. It comes with a remote control that allows voice search and has physical shortcut buttons for Sling and Netflix. If you buy a Air TV right now you will also get a $50 Sling TV credit.

With the AirTV Player, OTA channels remain separate from your Sling TV subscription, but they’re integrated into the same channel guide. That allows you to watch your OTA channels like Fox and Fox Sports 1 all in the same place.

We do have a few questions still. This device opens up some questions about if we will be able to use the new Sling TV Cloud DVR to record OTA. We have reached out to Sling TV for more information and will update this story when we learn more.
