The SiliconDust HDHomeRun Extend is currently on sale for $119.99 on Amazon. In the last year, I’ve only seen this priced lower once, which was when it was $110 around Black Friday. The SiliconDust HDHomeRun Extend is a simple device that lets you watch over-the-air (OTA) local broadcasts through your Fire TV. Simply connect it to your network, via WiFi or ethernet, and plug in a digital antenna. Then load up the HDHomeRun App on your Fire TV and watch live TV. Alternatively, you can use the official Kodi plugin that lets you watch live TV directly within Kodi. Using a PC and software like NextPVR you can even have DVR functionality. HDHomeRun themselves will soon be releasing their own DVR software as a result of their successful Kickstarter campaign. The HDHomeRun Extend has two tuners, so you can watch or record two different channels simultaneously.
