Sling TV to release android-powered set-top box with Netflix and OTA channels

Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny has uncovered Sling TV’s unannounced set-top box, the AirTV Player. The device appears to be running a modified version of Android TV. Where it differs from most streaming boxes is it also integrates an OTA tuner to watch local broadcast television by connecting an HD antenna. The box also supports Netflix, as indicated by the Netflix button on the remote, but it’s unclear if it supports other apps or the Google Play Store. Having “a single platform for watching Sling TV, Netflix, local channels,” as Sling TV puts it, should be quite compelling for those who just want a bit of cable TV, a bit of local channels, Netflix, and not much more.

    The AirTV Player link doesn’t seem to work.

    If you can load Kodi on it, now that would get you one box to accomplish a lot.
