SlingTV: Buy 2 Months, Get Free Indoor HD OTA Antenna

winegardSling TV streams live cable channels over the internet, with bundles starting at $20 per month. They have added some new promotions to help you add local HD broadcast channels via an OTA Antenna and a AirTV streaming box which integrates everything together to feel like a traditional cable box. No switching inputs back and forth.

  • Free Winegard FlatWave Indoor Amplified Antenna when you prepay two months of Sling TV. For as little as $40, you’d get 2 months of Sling TV and an antenna that costs $53 on Amazon.
  • Winegard Flatwave Indoor Amplified Antenna and AirTV Bundle for $70 when you prepay three months of Sling TV. The AirTV bundle costs $130 direct, but comes with $50 in Sling credit.
  • AirTV Bundle (Box + Adapter) for $50 when you prepay three months of Sling TV.

I hadn’t heard of the AirTV box before ( Wired review), but it strikes me as a time machine product. You can get live cable TV and old-fashioned channel surfing for about $20 to $30 a month. Both the product and price point feel like 1995. Sling TV has added cloud DVR recording on selected channels (no Disney/ABC/ESPN) for an extra $5 a month.

Alternatively, there is a product called Tablo that is a DVR with software designed to record OTA channels. Both AirTV and Tablo offer easy OTA channel lookup tools to see what is available in your area.
