Amazon makes watching and recording over-the-air easy — so long as you’ve got a Fire TV device.
It used to be that getting rid of cable and switching to an all-streaming solution meant you probably would be giving up your local channels. And it almost certainly meant that you’d lose the ability to record them, at least easily.
That’s changed a good bit in 2018. Many streaming services now include the major local broadcast channels. And products like Tablo (and to a different extent, HDHomerun) have made watching over-the-air TV throughout your home a relatively simple endeavor.
Now it’s Amazon’s turn with a combination over-the-air TV tuner/digital record — the Amazon Fire TV Recast.
