I finally cut the cord! Goodbye @comcastcares I don't believe I'll miss you! Thank you so much to my friends at @HDHomeRun_US, @getchannels, and @plex. This is the the killer setup!

@getchannels Thanks so much. AMAZING APP! This has been a dream for YEARS!— Aaron Smith (@mixotic1) November 21, 2015
Setup my HDHomeRun with the Channels app. The UI is great and I never have to switch inputs to watch broadcast TV. Definitely recommend :)— Michael Rockwell (@mdrockwell) June 12, 2017
Channels is the missing piece of your TV puzzle. If you already watch everything through streaming apps, Channels lets you finally watch sports, award shows, local news, and other live events on the same box.
Netflix, Hulu, Movies, Games, Casting, and now live TV without switching inputs – the holy grail!
Save money by ditching cable boxes and watch your cable subscription with Channels on your Fire TV instead.
Quit memorizing weird channel numbers like 12.1 and browse TV channels by TV networks and a full guide.
Super easy to use by everyone in the family.
Watch live primetime tv, local news, and sports on your Fire TV.
Using antenna for live TV? Channels lets you use one antenna for all the TVs in the house.
Cut the cord and ditch cable while still being able to watch live TV and sports via free over-the-air broadcasts.
Want sports on your porch? News in the kitchen? Channels adds live TV to any TV in your house.
The mpeg2 hardware decoder on the 1st and 2nd generation FireTV devices cannot deinterlace 1080i broadcasts, resulting in interlacing artifacts and a poor viewing experience. We recommend that users interested in a high-quality cordcutting solution with Channels to upgrade to the 3rd-generation Fire TV or an Android TV.
The 3rd generation Fire TV received deinterlacer support with a software update, so there's always the possibility of that happening in the future to other devices. We'll be monitoring the other devices as updates are released. We want as many people to be able to use Channels as possible.
