Can i cast an HD antenna through a stream box to multiple TVs

Jump to solution

If I were to get a roku box, attach an HD antenna to it, then attach a roku stick to another TV in the house, would I be able to get local cable on the other tv with the roku stick in it?  Or would I need to get a seperate Antenna for every TV?  If this setup I am asking about wouldnt work, is there another that would?

No, the antenna input on a tv is only used by the tuner in the tv.  It is not shared with other devices connected to the tv.  There is no way for a Roku on one tv to share the tv's antenna input with another Roku.

While the answer you’ve been given is technically correct, it isn’t complete.

In order to do what you want you would need something like the AirTV products.  Antenna connects to that, it records or plays broadcast shows to devices on your network that have the SlingTV app installed.  There are other products that work in similar ways.
