EchoStar Builds AirTV Slingbox OTA Box

Dish Network may be preparing to launch a new version of its Slingbox set-top designed to deliver local broadcast content to cable TV cord cutters, according to a document obtained by The Donohue Report.

Manufactured by corporate sister EchoStar, the AirTV Slingbox OTA (over the air) set-top appeared in an FCC test report that was released on Friday. The product could compete with the TiVo OTA box that TiVo began marketing in August.
