Sling TV announced the newest addition to the AirTV family of devices, the AirTV Anywhere. Powered by Sling, the AirTV Anywhere is a new Wi-Fi-enabled network hub featuring enhanced functionality and built-in DVR capabilities.
When paired with Sling TV’s live streaming service, a streaming device, and an OTA antenna, AirTV Anywhere offers a complete cable replacement solution by allowing viewers to stream free local broadcast channels from an OTA antenna to anywhere in the U.S. alongside Sling TV’s channel lineup. AirTV Anywhere wirelessly delivers local broadcast channels to compatible internet-connected devices, smartphones and tablets, via the Sling TV app using your antenna and wireless (or wired) network.
“Too many people continue overpaying for TV because they think cutting cable is too complicated,” said Adam Kucera, Director of Sales, SLING TV. “With SLING TV plus AirTV Anywhere, Americans can unlock the best kept secret in TV — free local channels that add up to hundreds in annual savings — all while making the switch to streaming with SLING TV at the best price.”
Here’s what you’ll get with the AirTV Anywhere.
- A Whole Home DVR Solution: The built-in 1 TB hard drive allows consumers to record more than 150 hours of local HD content and access recordings alongside Sling Cloud DVR recordings, without connecting an external hard drive.
- Quad Tuner: With four OTA tuners, consumers can watch and/or record up to four streams simultaneously, including one outside of the home on a compatible mobile device.
- Compact Design: With a vertical design and powerful 802.11ac 2×2 dual-band Wi-Fi system, AirTV Anywhere can be placed throughout the home to optimize for the best OTA signal in the home, regardless of the TV’s location, and deliver local channel signals to multiple streaming devices simultaneously via the SLING TV app.
- Sling TV Integration: Instead of using a separate app to watch local channels, customers will see over-the-air programming alongside their Sling TVsubscription within the app’s guide, Cloud DVR recordings and in “My Channels,” creating a seamless viewing experience.
The AirTV Anywhere is compatible with the AirTV Mini, AirTV Player, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Apple and Android mobile devices.
AirTV Anywhere is available today for $199.99 on AirTV.net.
