AirTV Shipments Accelerate

AirTV LLC is catching up.

Soon after the products were introduced on Jan. 3, the AirTV Player and AirTV Adapter were taking about two weeks to ship following the initial order due to an “overwhelming initial response.”  That’s been reduced to about five business days, the company confirmed.

Aimed at cord-cutters, the AirTV product set (the $99 Android TV-powered player and the $39.99 adapter, or $129.99 in a bundle) is designed to support and integrate OTT (including the Sling TV service) and over-the-air TV.

The initial product that's shipping doesn’t provide the full OTT-OTA guide integration shown in beta form at CES, but will be enabled via a software update that will be rolled out automatically to all AirTV boxes by mid-February.
