SiliconDust, makes or the HDHomeRun line of networked OTA tuners, has announced that they will be ending the HDHomeRun Premium TV streaming service over the course of the next 30 days, as first reported by CordCuttersNews. The shutdown is likely a result of a pending lawsuit against Omniverse One World Television, which provides the streaming channels offered by the HDHomeRun Premium TV service.
Amazon recently removed the HDHomeRun app from their appstore, again, likely due to the questionable legality of Omniverse’s claimed rights to stream network channels. SiliconDust says that current subscribers will be able to continue streaming content until their current month of service ends, at which time the service will not be renewed.
Hopefully, that means that the HDHomeRun app will return to the Amazon appstore sometime in the next month. Until then, customers needing to install the app can sideload it onto their Fire TVs.
