How to Watch Your Antenna on Your Roku & Roku TV

roku stick plusOne of the most popular questions on our daily YouTube videos is “How did I get my antenna on my Roku?” If you watch any of the videos, when you use Roku as our background, you may have noticed that one of the icons behind me is for my OTA TV antenna.

What people see behind me in the videos is a Roku TV, and all Roku TVs offer the ability to connect an antenna to your TV. No extra hardware is needed to add an antenna to your Roku TV.

The good news is if you have a Roku Player you can also get an antenna on your Roku if you are willing to buy a third-party device. There are a few devices available that will let you stream your antenna to your Roku Player.

Now this month more options to watch your antenna through your Roku Player have come to Roku. Here is our list.

Tablo DVR

The Tablo DVR will not only DVR your shows but also stream them to your Roku Player. You can watch both DVRed programs and live content from your antenna with the Tablo DVR.

You can find the Tablo DVR on Amazon HERE.

ClearStream TV

The ClearStream TV is a small stick that turns your antenna into a Wi-Fi antenna. There is no DVR, but you can stream your antenna to multiple devices with the ClearStream TV.

You can find the ClearStream TV on Amazon HERE.


With the AirTV you can stream to your Roku both through the Sling TV app and a separate free AirTV app. The best part is no subscription is needed to use the AirTV.

You can find the AirTV on Amazon HERE.


In the past you had to do some workarounds to get your HDHomeRun to work. This month, SiliconDust rolled out an official Roku Channel letting you stream your antenna through your HDHomeRun directly to your Roku.

You can find the HDHomeRun on Amazon HERE.

These four devices are a great way to easily add an antenna to your Roku Player.
