Watch The 2016 People’s Choice Awards with an Antenna and Record it with DVR

An antenna is an easy solution to watching television without cable. If you want to watch an over-the-air broadcast without paying for it, you can choose from a variety of antennas that are low cost and easy to set up. One of the best on the market is the Mohu Leaf 50 Indoor HDTV Antenna. The Mohu Leaf 50 is thin enough that it can be hung just about anywhere indoors and the signal is strong enough that it will pick up channels within a 50-mile range in any direction.

Once you have your OTA antenna set up, the next step is to pick up a DVR. One great option is the Tablo. This DVR allows you to record live content, much like a cable DVR box would. With the Tablo, you can stream your recordings and live TV to any device you own. It’s a great option for watching and recording all of your favorite shows.
