The folks at SiliconDust have released their new HDHomeRun app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The old “green” app dropped off the appstore a few months ago, so it’s good to finally see an app return. For those of you not familiar with HDHomeRun, it’s a line of networked tuners that allow you to watch over-the-air or cable television through any number of devices, including the Fire TV. You just connect a device like the HDHomeRun CONNECT to an HD antenna and your home network, then its channels become accessible through their various apps, which include a Kodi add-on and Plex channel. You can also use HDHomeRun’s software, which runs on most popular NAS devices, to record content like a DVR.
