How To Watch Live TV on your Streaming Device

Step 1: Get the App

The Channels app lets you watch live TV right on your streaming device. It even lets you pause, rewind, and fast forward just like your old cable box. Channels works on Apple TV, Android TV, or any of your iOS devices. It's THE best way to watch live TV.

Step 2: Pick an HDHomeRun

The HDHomeRun is a TV tuner that broadcasts your television signal across your home over your home network. Instead of plugging your HD antenna into every TV in your home, you plug it into the HDHomeRun. Then, you can watch TV on any device in your home. You can even do it with your cable.

The Channels app uses it to let you watch TV in any room of your home. You don't have to attach an antenna to every TV anymore.
