How to add an antenna input on Roku Express?

I can't seem to find away add an antenna or live tv input on the Roku Express. There is no TV input options in the settings. I want to be able to add the antenna to the home screen. Thanks for any help!

It's not possible.  You only get OTA channels on an actual RokuTV.  No standalone Roku has a tuner.

Thank you for the reply. So I have to continue to change to the antenna through the television input only?

You can't add an antenna to a Roku Express (or any Roku apart from a Roku TV), but you can add an antenna to your network and access it via an app on your Roku.

I've used both Tablo and AirTV devices, and both work great. They aren't cheap: Tablo devices start at $150, and an AirTV device is $100 or more (ignoring the AirTV Mini).
