AirTV Launches AirTV 2, a New Wi-Fi-Enabled Network Tuner
AirTV announced today that they launched AirTV 2, a new Wi-Fi-enabled network tuner. The new device wirelessly delivers free local channels to connected devices, smartphones and tablets, both in and out of the home, and improves its predecessor’s original design in both size and connectivity.
“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.”
The AirTV 2 comes with a powerful 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band Wi-Fi system that delivers strong in-home coverage. AirTV 2’s wireless capability and compact design allows consumers to place the device where broadcast reception is strongest in the home. The AirTV connects to a digital antenna and a wireless or wired network and provides two live streams of digitally transmitted OTA content simultaneously. Up to two streams are available inside the home with the capability to stream one of these out of the home.
With AirTV 2, users have access to free local channels like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS, via the Sling app on Roku, Amazon Fire TV and iOS and Android devices. Existing Sling customers are able integrate local channels directly into their Sling channel guide. Customers can also set up a free Sling account to access their local channels via AirTV.
AirTV 2 is available today for $99.99, but for a limited time, while Sling TV has three AirTV offers for new customers. New users can receive an AirTV 2 and an indoor OTA antenna for $49 with a three-month prepaid subscription to Sling TV; receive an AirTV Mini, an AirTV 2 and an indoor OTA antenna for $99 with a three-month prepaid subscription to Sling TV; or receive two AirTV Minis, an AirTV 2 and an indoor OTA antenna for $149 with a three-month prepaid subscription to Sling TV. Sling TV subscriptions have to be at least $20 per month to redeem these offers.
