Today Amazon announced the new OTA DVR for the Fire TV called the Fire TV Recast. This lets you stream your antenna to Fire TV, Echo Show, Android, and iOS. (Sadly that is the full lineup of supported devices.)
The new DVR costs far more than their competitors who already have apps on the Fire TV with a cost of $229.99. Yet you do get built-in storage with enough space for up to 75 hours of HD programs and free channel guide and on the go stream to help cover the slightly higher upfront cost.
You can find the Fire TV Recast on Amazon HERE.
