Streaming sticks No Antenna

Why do the streaming sticks not recognize antenna channels? The Roku TVs do. Big disappointment.

Re: Streaming sticks No Antenna

Because they don't have a tuner and if they did it probably wouldn't fit in a stick not to mention the problem with connecting an antenna to a tiny stick.  Unless you're using some kind of monitor without a tuner there's no sense in a Roku device (that isn't a TV) having a tuner.  Roku devices are for streaming; TVs are for OTA broadcasts.
