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.


  1. Just curious, how do you know which Winegard indoor antenna they are sending out? I looked at Sling and didn’t see anywhere they mention the model number of the antenna.
