LEAKED: AirTV Mini Looks Like a Chromecast, But With The Power of Android TV

Jason Gurwin

Last week, there were reports of a new AirTV device hitting the FCC database and now we have the full details thanks to a thread on SatelliteGuys. Next month, it appears that Sling TV will be releasing a new version of their Air TV Player, which dramatically reduces the size of the device to something that appears similar to the Chromecast.

The device, which has a built-in HDMI cable, has a UI similar to the current AirTV Player, with YouTube, Netflix, and the Google Assistant pre-integrated. The AirTV Mini will include a remote that can control your TV, sound bar, and one-click access to both Sling and Netflix.

AirTV Mini is expected to retail for $80, which puts it slightly cheaper than the current AirTV Player ($99), but at a fraction of the cost of the NVIDIA SHIELD, and in range of the Xiaomi Mibox. Unlike other AirTV device though, there is no USB input meaning that you wonโ€™t be able to connect your OTA antenna directly to the device. In order to view them, you will need either an existing AirTV device โ€” or what looks to be a refreshed AirTV 2 which is expected to be released in July
