Sling TV Officially Announces The AirTV 2 OTA DVR

After months of waiting and even seeing the AirTV 2 for sale on Amazon today, Sling TV officially announced the brand new AirTV 2 OTA DVR. This new DVR will stream your antenna to your Sling TV app (even if you are not a Sling TV subscriber) and let you watch and record your local channels inside your Sling TV app.

One of the biggest improvements with the AirTV 2 is the new and improved 802.11ac 2×2 dual-band Wi-Fi system. This upgraded WiFi should help improve the streaming of your antenna through your home.

“AirTV 2 takes a great idea and wraps it in an even better package, making it easy for cord-cutters to integrate their local channels with an OTT subscription,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “The robust Wi-Fi connection means customers can place the AirTV 2 anywhere in the home to get the best possible OTA signal without dealing with the wiring or placing the antenna near the TV.”

You can find the AirTV 2 on Amazon for $99.99 HERE.
