Hulu pulls Android TV app from some DVR and cable boxes

A few months ago, Hulu finally revamped its Android TV app after it letting it languish for years, with the main new addition being support for Hulu Live TV. However, the company's renewed attention to the platform also seems to come with a downside: the app is being blocked on a handful of Android TV set-top boxes.

AirTV Mini is an $80 4K Android TV stick with Sling on-board

Dish-owned AirTV came out in 2017 with a 4K HDR Android TV streaming box that can plug into an antenna for local over-the-air broadcasts — thus combining local TV with over-the-top services ranging from Netflix to YouTube to Sling (another Dish property) in one input. But what if you have other TV sets you'd like to hook up? Surely you'd want to avoid the hassle of getting another AirTV box, right? Well, the company has come out with a new stick that acts as an OTT streamer on its own, but can also relay OTA with the help of an existing AirTV unit.

Sling TV gets more expensive, adds à la carte channels and free content

Sling TV announced a number of changes yesterday. Strangely, it seems people who don't subscribe to the service stand to benefit the most. While the price of a basic package has gone up by five bucks a month, from $20 to $25, the company has introduced free content for non-subscribers, as well as à la carte channel selections and additional on-demand programming that don't require subscriptions.

[Update: Changes are rolling out] Sling TV announces a new interface for Android users to improve navigation and content discovery

I have watched Sling TV steadily grow in both popularity and size in the time since its birth. The channel count is now quite ridiculous (in a good way), but with that comes the need for easy navigation and new content discovery. Luckily, Sling has that covered with the new update rolling out soon to Android users (with additional platforms coming soon).

Sling brings the Cloud DVR feature to Android and Roku devices

Sling TV offers a compelling value for cord cutters who want to stream cable television channels without paying the hefty prices. One of its weaknesses was its all-live setup, which it addressed with the Cloud DVR "First Look" program. Initially limited to Fire devices, the company has now expanded access to the service to Android and Roku players.

Dish unveils AirTV, a 4K Android TV streaming box with Netflix, Sling, and YouTube

Boxes that go under your TV and offer access to Netflix or other streaming services or over-the-air TV channels are all the rage at the moment, with things like Roku and NVIDIA Shield selling well. A new competitor has entered the area, as AirTV lays its claim to be under your television.

AirTV is a subsidiary of Dish, so that would explain why its pushing both OTA channels and Sling TV a great deal. The box, the AirTV Player, is powered by Android TV, and plays its content at 4K resolution. The OTA channels require an AirTV adapter and OTA antenna, which are both sold separately.

Sling TV introduces recording with a closed beta for its Cloud DVR service

While Sling TV makes a pretty compelling offering for those who want to ditch expensive conventional television service, its all-live setup is something of a bummer - recording has become so ingrained in the premium TV mindset that it's hard to give up. The company is rectifying that shortcoming with Cloud DVR, a (wait for it) DVR service that uses cloud storage to hold recorded TV episodes and other content. It's in closed beta right now - prospective users can sign up and cross their fingers at this address.
