AirTV launches dual tuner capabilities
AirTV Player introduced its dual-tuner capability, allowing users to watch one OTA channel while recording another, or record two OTA channels simultaneously. AirTV Player users can purchase the new dual-tuner adapter for $29 or bundle the dual-tuner adapter with the AirTV Player for $119.
With the launch of AirTV Player’s new dual-tuner capability, the entire line of AirTV products (both the AirTV and AirTV Player) now has the ability to record up to two local channels simultaneously.
“We are committed to making it as easy as possible to view free local channels alongside other popular streaming content through our AirTV products,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “Now, with the dual-tuner adapter, customers are able to watch their hometown team on a local channel while recording an episode of a popular show on a separate local channel, meaning they won't miss any of their favorite programming.” AirTV Player, the 4K Android TV-based streaming media device that launched in January 2017, integrates Sling TV, Netflix, YouTube and thousands of apps from the Google Play Store with free local OTA channels on one platform. OTA channel integration requires an AirTV Adapter and an OTA antenna, each sold separately. Local channel availability depends on geographic location and antenna quality and placement. In February 2018, AirTV Player debuted its Local Channels DVR, allows users to record shows on free over-the-air broadcast channels (external USB hard drive or thumb drive required). The AirTV Player with AirTV dual-tuner adapter bundle is available for $119 today at airtv.net. The new dual-tuner adapter can be paired with all AirTV Player generations for $29. Starting today, the AirTV Player with AirTV single-tuner adapter is available for $99. Additionally, the AirTV Player is $89. The AirTV Player adapters can only be paired with AirTV Players.
