AirTV, the new OTA/OTT combo device for cord-cutters, has filled a gap in its functionality with the release of a firmware update that enables the guide to integrate local channels received over-the-air.

The Android TV-based AirTV Player and Adapter were introduced at CES in January, where it demonstrated the beta version of a full antenna integration capability that combined Sling TV’s OTT service with over-the-air TV channels on a unified interface.
However, that level of integration, viewed by some as a key selling point for AirTV, was absent when the product started to ship to customers. That firmware update was originally expected to become available by mid-February.
