Can OTA channels be incorporated to "Live TV"

Jump to solution

I receive my local TV channels with an OTA antenna. Is there a way to incorporate local channels into the “Live TV” icon within the Roku Home page.  I have 2 TV’s (Visio and LG) and each have their own Robu Express 4k+ unit and each are connected to separate OTA antennas.

Thank you.

My Hisense TV will include my OTA channels with Live TV.
My two other TV's with external Roku Premieres do not.

@schs1977 The short answer is it is not possible to incorporate live local channels into the live guide of any Roku device except a TV with a Roku operating system built in.  None of the Roku devices have a built in tuner for TV.

Thanks. Both of my TV's are a little older. It must not work with them.

Thanks.  I didn't think it was possible, but I am a "rookie" at streaming.
