PLEASANTON, CA – SiliconDust’s HDHomeRun EXTEND Tuner with Dual OTA, known for allowing viewers to watch and record simultaneously (or watch or record two channels at once), is available for $139 at Newegg, and $140 on Amazon.
This Black Friday sale comes at a favorable time for aspiring cord-cutters, especially in light of the recent price hikes in paid TV services, such as that of Comcast’s effective mid-December.
Normally available for the price of $180, the HDHomeRun delivers streamed content and OTA to a broad range of devices, from smartphones to smart TVs such as the Apple TV.
Also notable is its compatibility with Plex. When paired, Plex gives the HDHomeRun access to even more features, including DVR. This versatility and compatibility is the reason more than 2000 shoppers have given it an average of 4/5 stars across multiple online stores.
The HDHomeRun’s tuner can also be paired with a standard antenna to access free local television broadcasts. For this purpose, Amazon recommends the AmazonBasics 35-mile Indoor TV Antenna, which costs $20. This would be a simple way to expand your content options, aside from standard streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.
Another good enhancement to add to the mix is Amazon’s Fire TV Stick series of streaming devices, starting at $20 this Black Friday sale. This will further expand your overall content selection and turning your entertainment system into a fully-fledged home theater. Logitech also has universal remotes starting at $40 that work well with the HDHomeRun EXTEND, but getting an Amazon Fire Cube with built-in Alexa will eliminate the need for that.
The SiliconDust HDHomeRun EXTEND Tuner allows viewers to save on cable subscription costs using its dual digital tuners. This feature enables it to stream both free broadcast TV alongside unencrypted cable channels through a home network, on two devices simultaneously.
The HDHomeRun EXTEND Tuner’s resolutions go up to 1080p, and is compatible with both iOS and Android, all major Smart TVs, and most tablets.
