Antenna/Live TV with Roku Express+?

Ok, so...

I guess I'm confused.

I purchased this Roku Express+ thinking I could stream my antenna channels through it...

Can I? 

If so...
how?? 

Haha, I'm completely lost.

Thanks in advance. xo

No Roku player contains an OTA tuner, so no way to watch broadcast TV. There are devices (HDHomeRun) that can connect to your network and an antenna, and make the OTA stations available on devices like a Roku, but those can get a little pricey. 

And no other streaming player (Fire TV, Apple TV, Nvidia Shield) can do it either. They all would require something like the HDHR. None have built in TV tuners.

Yes you can use your OTA (Over the Air Antenna) in conjunction with your Roku device. You'll need wireless connection (which you do since your using the Express), and a DVR device (best is Tablo). Antenna connects to Tablo device. Tablo connects wireless to your router (or with cable). Download Tablo channel on your Roku device, and your all set.
