Introducing the AirTV Mini which is direct competition to the Roku, Amazon Fire and Google Chromecast streaming dongles.
AirTV just announced the launch of its 4K streaming dongle, the AirTV Mini. The new streaming stick follows the company’s initial offering from a couple of years ago.
Like other products offered by Amazon, Google, Roku, and others, the AirTV mini allows access to your favorite streaming platforms such as Netflix, Sling TV, Hulu and others which can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
In addition to the compatibility with a number of streaming platform apps, the AirTV also offers over-the-air (OTA) channels. The OTA feature will only work if you have the OTA antenna which is sold separately.
The new streaming stick isn’t the first of its kind, however, according to Mitch Weinraub, product development director at AirTV, the new 4K HDR streaming stick features “more memory and a faster processor” than other streaming devices in the same category.
