Sling TV’s AirTV Exits Beta

Last year Sling TV quietly rolled out a network-based AirTV device. This device allows anyone with an antenna to stream their locals through an air TV app or inside the Sling TV app on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and iOS and Android phones and tablets. (In a very similar way to how the Tablo DVR works.)

Now after a few months of testing out the new AirTV and apps, Sling TV officially announced the rollout of the whole home AirTV.

“Our new AirTV solution solves two problems: first, it blends free local channels with OTT television, something customers have demanded since the advent of streaming,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “And, because it’s a Wi-Fi-enabled device, you can power your entire home with one OTA antenna, simplifying the installation process.”

“Customers can mount their antenna connected to AirTV wherever the signal is strongest, whether it’s tucked away in an attic or hidden behind the living room TV,” said Weinraub. “AirTV wirelessly streams to AirTV-enabled devices visible to a home Wi-Fi network, so there’s no longer a need to run cables across the home to get OTA signals.”

Existing Sling TV users can integrate AirTV directly into their accounts. Customers can also set up a free Sling TV account to access their local channels via AirTV, or create a free account with the stand-alone AirTV app.
