    UPnP Universal Plug and Play for discovery I could use the free VLC app on a Mac to receive live broadcasts I could also turn to the wonky InstaTV Pro free but with a required 12 in app purchase that lets me view OTA programming in iOS My HDHomeRun Connect streams as MPEG2 the HDHomeRun Extend model has an internal H 264 compressor for better networked and mobile device performance and the HDHomeRun Prime model can accept a cable operator provided CableCard which can bring in a combination of broadcast bundled cable satellite only and premium channels more on CableCard shortly But it s a pain to get either VLC or InstaTV Pro to display on an actual television I could AirPlay them to my Apple TV but that s not always reliable El Gato does have an iOS EyeTV app 4 99 but not yet a tvOS one that works with the EyeTV software on the Mac and allows the use of AirPlay but all the extra levels of software are awkward add delays and reduce quality Why not just use a TV to tune rather than messing about with Channels and an Apple TV Well my TV is a Samsung which is one of the major brands and the interface is about as good as an Apple device owner would expect meaning that it s not terrible but it s a pain So I could run an antenna connection into my television use its remote and tune I could even use an HDHomeRun via UPnP to the Samsung model I have I could but then I d have to fuss with input switching a separate remote control and the clumsy Samsung interface I don t want to do that and I suspect many of you don t either With Channels watching live TV becomes easy and is accessible within the Apple TV interface alongside Netflix Hulu and home sharing from a Mac running iTunes Channeling Simplicity There s not much to Channels which is a plus It s a one trick tvOS pony and currently works only with HDHomeRun hardware although the Channels developers also hope to support the upcoming HDHomeRun DVR software Channels detects any HDHomeRun tuners on the local network and adds them in its Settings screen where you can mark individual channels as favorites so they show up in a separate view Favorites can be rearranged on the main Favorites screen where you press and hold the Siri Remote s touchpad until the previews jiggle after which you can move them around as in the main Apple TV apps view Settings is also where you can try to add tuners that don t appear automatically and configure audio Channels 1 3 added support for the S PDIF over HDMI format which allows surround sound to be decoded from OTA broadcasts and passed through your Apple TV s HDMI connection to a properly equipped stereo system If you re not sure about your setup follow the
