Introduction

Channels lets you watch, pause, rewind, and record live TV on all of your streaming devices at home or away.

How does it work?

Channels utilizes a network enabled TV tuner called an HDHomeRun. Your TV broadcasts are sourced from either an HD antenna that provides free over-the-air TV or from your cable service and the HDHomeRun makes them available on your home network.

Once your HDHomeRun is set up, Channels uses it to stream your live TV directly to your streaming device.

Channels then provides a modern experience for browsing and watching TV.

What’s this about pausing live TV?

Channels buffers its TV streams directly on your device allowing you to pause up to 90 minutes. With just the app, you can start watching a show, pause, rewind, and fast forward while watching your programs.

What about recording live TV?

By simply installing the Channels DVR Server and subscribing, you can turn your home computer or compatible NAS device into a whole home DVR.

Channels then lets you schedule, manage, and watch your recordings right from the app.
