AirTV Debuts Over-the-Air 4K Streaming Player

airtv-device-lg-0117Today at CES, a barely-known company called AirTV debuted a set-top box and service called AirTV. The AirTV player is a 4K Android TV-based streaming device that integrates free over-the-air (OTA) channels, Netflix, Sling TV and YouTube into single experience. An interesting smart remote controls the AirTV Payer, your TV and your sound system and features dedicated Netflix and Sling TV buttons to speed up access to those services. Alternatively, an AirTV Adapter, plugged into the USB port of any TV, enables the TV to receive local OTA channel access (in 4K) when an OTA antenna (sold separately) is connected.

AirTV Player, built on the Android TV operating system, is a streaming device that, at launch, can integrate Netflix, Sling TV, YouTube and all of the apps in the Google Play Store with free local OTA channels (OTA channel integration requires an AirTV adapter and an OTA antenna, both sold separately). Internet access is required for streaming platforms and AirTV Player is Wi-Fi and Ethernet compatible. AirTV Player connects to a TV via HDMI.

The AirTV Player, with the optional OTA AirTV Adapter, is shipping and lists for $129. The stand-along AirTV player for streaming services is $99. Here are all the specs.
