Today SiliconDust the company behind the popular HDHomeRun tuners announced a new product called All-in-One that combines free live local broadcast TV, premium cable TV channels and a DVR into a single user interface.

This marks our first big step toward an even better experience that combines all the key elements cord cutters look for into a single app,” said Theodore Head, President and CEO of SiliconDust. “We love options, and we know cord cutters do too. This service gives them another high quality option to consider that reduces complexity and improves convenience.”
