I have spent countless hours trying to get a live TV over the air with old my @HDHomeRun_US duel ever since Windows Media Center disappeared. Finally an easy solution with @getchannels on Apple TV. It took maybe 10 minutes to get everything all set up, best $25 i have spent.— Michael Fowler (@flowbot44) January 28, 2018
