AirTV has added dual-tuner capability to AirTV Player, allowing users to watch and record two over-the-air (OTA) broadcast channels simultaneously.

With the adapter, AirTV Player users can watch one OTA channel while recording another, or record two OTA channels simultaneously through AirTV Player’s Local Channels DVR.

“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 favourite 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).
