I've used Slingbox units for 10+ years for cable streaming and was glad to see a similar product aimed at antenna users. The AirTV is reasonably priced and easy to set up. I set this up in my son's house to stream football games since we moved south to another state (no more DirecTV/NFL Ticket). Only problem I had was initially setting up the Sling app. It tries to get you to buy a streaming package and I only wanted the "Over the Air" portion/features. Called customer support and they worked through it with me...they were very courteous and helpful. One other point...you can set up the box using either the AirTV or Sling app. However, if you plan on connecting a USB drive to DVR programs you must use the Sling App (not the AirTV app). I can't vouch for the longevity or durability of the unit, but so far it works great

I have both this and the AirTV player, the player is for my main tv because it supports 4K and local DVR. This AirTV Works as advertised, easy to set up, works on every TV in the house with very good picture quality. The only confusing part is which app to use, u can only use one but not both. Some of my streaming devices support Sling App but not others, I just use the AirTV app on all TVs.
Does what it is designed to do and well
Don't pay attention to the reviews like..."It's nice and works but it wont let you load any Amazon apps on it like Amazon prime video or music"....It is used to integrate OTA Antenna TV and your Sling TV Account and/or App on your Roku, Firestick, etc and can be accessed via Wi-Fi from any TV or Device with AirTV or Sling TV app.
Totally worth it!
Need some patience to setup, must install the Sling App on a smart phone, then you can program the box, overall very satisfied with the box. Only complaint is that it won't let you immediately delete a show after you watch it on DVR if it's the last show for a scheduled recording... you have to go back the next day to delete the show. Other than that, I get all my OTA channels to stream throughout the house and also tested the ability to watch my DVR from my PC at work, that feature alone is what I wanted most!
Close but not quite There yet.
I've had my Air TV for about a year now. At first the recordings were working great now I'm noticing that I have to record week by week due to the series recordings being unreliable at this point. Also it has to be rebooting every other week it seems but all that being said when it's operating the way it's designed too operate it's great. Limited to 2 turners but can purchase a larger Hard Drive for recordings which comes in handed. There has been a new model of this Air TV Box so maybe they've made some updates. It would be nice to have an update sent to this box too though.
Good concept but poor execution of the DVR feature. Recordings do not always save and sometimes fast forward function does not work. When watching a program while recording it, there are constant freezes and buffering. Occasionally the guide service will drop for a channel, which prevents setting a program for recording. The SlingTV app was buggy for OTA channels with frequent buffering. A message pops up twice saying an external hard drive is connected every time when turning on the OTA channels.
