    [New Product] AirTV Mini dongle with AMLogic S905Y2, Certified AndroidTV, Netflix, Prime Video, 4K YouTube, and SlingTV skin


    Found Something Interesting....

    A new device made to Google's specification for their new "Operator Tier" class of devices, which is to help grow the AndroidTV platform, Google did all the leg work picking SoC vendors and OEM manufactures to introduce a spec build that Content Vendors can purchase, customize, and release products in new markets in short time frames with fully Google' certified devices. Kind of reminds me of Nexus phones, Google spec'd those devices then shopped around for OEM's to build it, this time they had the device built and are pushing platforms like SlingTV to purchase, customize, and distribute with AndroidTV. Sidenote, TiVo is suppose to release a $50 tv dongle next year and it reportedly is this exact same device with the exception of TiVo branding, software, and unique remote.

    If you can disable the SlingTV skin start-up this would be a definite MiBox replacement. The price is a little high, but you do get official AndroidTV with widevine L1 an all the certificates and licenses to use with Paid App services.

      UPDATE:

      You can get this device FREE (Limited-time offer) when you purchase 2 months of the Sling TV service (about $25 per month), this offer is only for new customers and only 1 per customer.I did order 2 months of Sling service (paid $50) to get this AirTV-mini device for FREE for a relative and did some quick testing before I gifted the device to them. This device can be used as a AndroidTV OS device to make a Dumb-TV a SmartTV without having to continue with the Sling TV service, but it must be have a free Sling account made to access the device because on start-up the device will always boot to the Sling App, and of course you need a Google account to download Apps from the Play store. Tested Netflix, Amazon, and the AndroidTV OS software and I have to say that the OS ran very well and felt polished over standard Android STB devices. Just tested general usage of the device, I didn't have time to run all the benchmarks, and/or to really push the device hard. Overall, in my opinion, this device is well suited for a secondary TV in your home, I felt that this dongle device's build quality was superb, I would rate it equal to an Amazon Firestick 4k with more user friendly AndroidTV OS to be easily used with your favorite Android Apps. The thing that stood out the most to me was how great the remote was, a Bluetooth remote that is very responsive and easy to use, with the feel of the buttons and there placement quick and easy to learn.
