    Looking for LIVE TV Solutions without paying a cable subscription.

    Only find CBS, SKY NEWS, BLOOMBERG.

    Any others I am not aware of ?

    There's Auntie Player for BBC content, but it's not exactly legal, and requires side loading through XCode.

    Shocked other networks haven't followed CBS and HBO and offered streaming subscription plans.

    Get yourself an Apple ID from an European country and use no payment method. the app is free and if you have a DNS solution then you will get it to work just fine.

    i got the new apple TV - very disappointed - I was looking for live tv so I can cut the cord- this new app tv is 99% garbage- CBSN is the only channel i watched and it was more commercials than content- my impression is this is a sewer pipe of advertisements- rant over...

    I'm officially impressed. Wish I didn't have so much money already invested in Elgato and Hauppauge tuners...

    Tablo is said to be bringing their OTA DVR tuner to the Apple TV soon.

    Thanks for posting. I'm loving the idea of this. Looking into the hardware now. Is there any DVR capabilities with the Silicondust hardware like with Tablo? Not a big deal since I use it OTA mainly for sports so I'd want it mainly for my own instant replay. That's the main thing I miss since I dumped cable.

    I have this app with my hdhomerun and it is pretty buggy. The video stutters and the audio goes in and out. I think it will be good at some point but it has a ways to go yet. I also have a Tablo and the Shield tv app is outstanding. I am hoping the app for the Atv 4 will be the same

    Wish I had read this before I went out and bought a second-hand HDhomerun and the Channels app xD

    Just installed it, works pretty good so far. I do wish they had some basic time shifting capability. Mainly a rewind function. Also the remote seems to be a bit sensitive as far as changing a channel.

    Yes, working well for me too. PVR function would be nice, but I like to be able to check the local news without grabbing another remote, so this is more than satisfactory.

    I want to get this but do I need an hdhomerun device with a cable card slot if I plan to use this with Comcast ?

    The ones with cable cards cost $130 vs the $80 without it
