Dish’s AirTV launches an $80 streaming stick for accessing Sling TV, Netflix & broadcast channels

Despite the new AirTV Mini’s streaming stick form factor, it’s not meant to compete with rival streaming sticks like the low-cost Amazon Fire TV Stick, Roku streaming stick or Chromecast in terms of price. Instead, it’s a $79.99 alternative to the $119.99 AirTV Player bundle — perhaps for someone who doesn’t care for the sort of Playskool-inspired design of the original streaming box, but still wants over-the-air channels, 4K support, and easy access to Sling TV and Netflix. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch » https://tcrn.ch/2jJ4TS6

Google just might power the streaming box of your dreams in 2019

The consumer version of Android TV is now getting yet another redesign—its second in less than two years. Google isn’t ready to show off what it’s been working on, as the company is still experimenting with different approaches, but [Shalini Govil-Pai, Google] said the result will involve more personalized recommendations, and will make catching up on what you’re already watching easier. In service of those ideas, Google may rework or even eliminate some current features, such as the rows of content recommendations from individual apps on the home screen. – Jared Newman, TechHive » http://bit.ly/2H4wo3f
