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.
