No.  The Roku gives you the same features a smart TV would have.  Connect the antenna to your TV.

No, the HD antenna would be connected to your TV for OTA(Over the Air Channels). Usually in the coaxial port/some on a HDMI port.

The Roku Ultra is connected to your TV via the HDMI port for streaming. (Helps make your TV resemble a smart tv with streamable apps/channels).

Then you use the various Inputs on your TV to toggle between the two.

(ie  INPUT 1/ANT  would control your antenna OTA channels (when you want regular TV)

       INPUT2/HDMI would control your roku. (when you want to stream content - internet connection)

 

Hope this helps clear things up.
