Love Sling TV? Love your Antenna? Wish you could get both through one interface? According to Amazon listing found by ZatzNotFunny.com Sling TV is about to add all the local stations you pick up with an antenna to their streaming service.
The addition of local TV stations will be done by a new box called AirTV. The AirTV box will allow you to plug in your antenna and it will then stream your local stations inside your Sling TV app (Note you will still need an antenna for this to work).
From the Amazon Listing:
With AirTV and an HD antenna, you can stream live local programming, news and your local sports anywhere in your home using the free Sling TV app and its integrated program guide. No paid contracts-just free local TV on any compatible device. And if you want more channels, you can subscribe to paid Sling TV packages-all from the same app. What you’ll need: AirTV HD Antenna Free Sling TV App Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh minimum requirements: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit) 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver Operating systems Apple OS X (Yosemite+ ) Microsoft Windows (7+ ) What’s needed HDTV digital Over-The-Air antenna Wireless or wired router High-speed Internet Sling TV account and app Media streamer like Fire TV or Roku to watch on a TV
