Dish-owned AirTV launches new Mini Android TV streaming stick

AirTV, the cord-cutting brand owned by Dish, has launched a new Android TV streaming stick.

AirTV Mini is 4K HDR compatible and retails for US$79.99 (€70.94) from AirTV.net.

This is the first product launch from the brand since the original AirTV was released in 2017.

The company says that the new palm-sized AirTV Mini is designed to “seamlessly” integrate Sling TV, Netflix and OTA channels into a single user experience.

Similar sized to Amazon’s Fire TV stick, AirTV Mini also offers an OTA streaming feature when paired with the AirTV Wi-Fi-enabled network tuner. The tuner, launched in 2018, allows users to access OTA channels on all their devices through an app, and is part of Dish’s efforts to local TV.

“The AirTV brand is committed to making local TV relevant and easily accessible to streamers,” said Mitch Weinraub, director of product development for AirTV. “The AirTV Mini is a powerhouse streaming stick with more memory and a faster processor than anything else in the category. When combined with the AirTV network tuner and the Sling TV app, the Mini delivers a superior streaming experience, especially for Slingers who want premium features in a small package at an affordable price.”  

AirTV Mini also supports Google Assistant, and has access to thousands of apps from the Google Play store.
