Roku 4K DVR streamer player with a tv tuner

Jump to solution

Roku forum,
I'm "cutting the chord" and will use one of the Roku boxes. I also have
an antenna that is bringing in 40 local channels. I happened onto this web
site that says Roku has a 4K HDR streaming player with a built-in TV tuner.
Has anyone ever seen one of these? Does it actually exist?

Here's the web site.

Roku doesn't make devices with tuners. That link goes to a 4-year-old article about some device in Australia that claimed to run Roku software. Roku doesn't sell devices in Australia, never has. Roku is officially unsupported there. The person quoted in the article left Roku over 2 1/2 years ago.

If you want more information about whatever that device was, I'd suggest following up with that Website, or the company mentioned in the article.

Now, there are devices in the US that have TV tuners and run Roku software. Those are Roku TVs. Roku doesn't make them, but they do supply the software to those TV manufacturers. They are actual TVs with built-in Roku software. https://www.roku.com/products/roku-tv

There are devices you can add to your network that have TV tuners that allow you to watch over the air (OTA) TV from any Roku device. I've used Tablo and Air TV, and they both work well. There are other devices that also work on Roku, but I haven't used them. Others may be able to offer information about them.

Yes, it exists, its called a Roku TV - and you can get one from many TV manufacturers.

Otherwise, the device you see mentioned in that article from 2017 isnt available in the US - now or then.

I wish it did exist!  The Roku TVs mentioned are nice, but I really want to keep my Sony & LG TVs (which have Roku devices connected to them).  If they made a Roku player (not TV) with a built in tuner, I'D BUY IT!

Why is that such a difficult solution?  Many people want it...
