Get this Channels App Deal
The Channels app is on sale for $14.99. This is the lowest price that this app has ever been, which is a discount of $10 off the regular price of $24.99. It might seem like a lot to spend on an app, but this app provides a service that most other companies charge a subscription fee to provide. The Channels app gives you arguably the best interface for accessing the live OTA channels from an HDHomeRun network tuner. If you don’t care about recording content, which is a big aspect of the Fire TV Recast, and just want to access your free live broadcast channels on your Fire TV, an HDHomeRun and the Channels app is the way to go. The 2-tuner HDHomeRun is on sale for $69.00 right now, down from $99.99, and the 4-tuner HDHomeRun is on sale for $99.99, down from $149.99. That means you can pay just $83.99 for both the base HDHomeRun and the Channels app to get OTA channels on your Fire TV with no subscription fees.
The Channels app is a great option for owners of an HDHomeRun network TV tuner to use to watch their live content on Fire TVs and other streaming devices, but its $24.99 price has certainly deterred many people from giving the app a try. The independent developers behind the app have just released a free version of their app, called Channels DVR, that can be used indefinitely by anyone subscribed to the Channels DVR subscription service. Combined with the 30-day DVR free trial, it also now serves as a free way to try the Channels app, whether you’re interested in the DVR service or not. Read more ›

The Channels app, which gives owners of HDHomerun networked TV tuners an alternative way to watch live TV debuted in the Amazon Fire TV appstore last month. At the time, it was only available for the Fire TV 3 because that was the only Fire TV model that supported native hardware deinterlacing. Channels has just released an update that adds support for the Fire TV 1, Fire TV 2, Fire TV Stick 2, and all Fire TV Edition televisions. The only device not supported by the app is now the 1st Gen Fire TV Stick. The app’s developers tell me they were able to support older models by writing their own custom deinterlacer that uses the GPU to perform the necessary deinterlacing process.
Channels, the popular Apple TV app for viewing and time-shifting live television, has arrived on the 3rd generation Amazon Fire TV. Paired up with an HDHomeRun, the Channels app lets you pause, rewind, and fast forward live TV. It also offers a full grid program guide, surround sound, and much more. Read more ›
