Dish has announced the launch of its new AirTV Dual Tuner Adapter. With the Dual Tuner adapter, AirTV users can now watch and record two over-the-air channels at the same time.
"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."
The AirTV player is a 4K Android TV-based media player with access to Netflix, Sling TV, YouTube and thousands of content options through the Google Play Store. Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and HDMI connectivity are integrated as well. Likewise, the device can also play free local OTA (over-the-air) channels with a separate AirTV adapter (available as a bundle or separately) and OTA antenna (sold separately). In addition, the new Dual Tuner adapter model allows viewers to watch one OTA channel while they record another, or record two OTA channels at the same time. With that said, DVR recordings require the use of an external hard drive (sold separately).
The AirTV Player Dual-Tuner Adapter Bundle is now available for $120. Likewise, the new dual-tuner adapter can also be bought separately for $30.
And beyond the AirTV Player, DISH also offers a separate OTA device dubbed simply AirTV ($120). This model does not include 4K Android media player support. Instead, the AirTV connects to an OTA antenna (sold separately) and Wi-Fi connection, allowing users to stream live HD OTA broadcasts to the AirTV app or Sling TV app on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or iOS/Android mobile devices. Likewise, DVR recordings are also supported via an external hard drive.
