Today Sling TV officially launched the $79.99 AirTV Mini. This new device runs Android TV and can stream your locals from your AirTV box to multiple TVs around your home. Just like with the 1st Gen AirTV Player it will launch directly into Sling TV combining both Sling TV streaming cable networks and your locals from your AirTV into a single app and user interface. Plus you get full access to Android TV.
“The AirTV brand is committed to making local TV relevant and easily accessible to streamers,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “The AirTV Mini is a powerhouse streaming stick with more memory and a faster processor than anything else in the category. When combined with the AirTV network tuner and the Sling TV app, the Mini delivers a superior streaming experience, especially for Slingers who want premium features in a small package at an affordable price.”

Sling TV seems to be targeting the cord cutter who wants to save money but wants cord cutting to be as much like cable TV as possible. These new $79.99 AirTV Mini boxes will let cord cutters have a much more cable TV experience when combined with an AirTV box to access locals.
