washington post How to get broadcast TV for free, even without Aereo
by Aaron Sankin | June 30, 2014
Last Wednesday, the United States Supreme Court effectively drove a stake through the heart of Aereo, a company that allowed users to stream network television over the Internet. Aereo also functions as a DVR service, letting its customers watch local programming they had recorded and stored on the company's cloud-based servers. Aereo's CEO has pledged to keep the the company going, but the demise of its current service is all but assured. Click here to read more.
CNET Logo Aereo alternatives for recording free over-the-air TV (roundup)
by Matthew Moskovciak | June 26, 2014
Aereo promised a breakthrough service for cord-cutters: the ability to watch and record over-the-air TV without the hassle of an antenna or additional hardware for $8 to $12 a month.

Wednesday's Supreme Court decision against Aereo means the company's current service is effectively illegal. (CBS, the parent company of CNET, is one of the companies that brought the suit against Aereo.) But that doesn't mean that cable cutters are out of options. Over the last year, several compelling over-the-air recording solutions have hit the market, making it easier for cord cutters to supplement streaming video services like Netflix with traditional network television, as long as you get reception.

by Chris Morran | June 25, 2014
While we join the hordes of cord-cutters around the country who are still reeling from the death notice nailed to the door of Aereo by the Supreme Court this morning, we would be remiss if we didn't remind you can still receive and record over-the-air broadcast feeds on your computers and TVs in ways that SCOTUS hasn't gutted like a Thanksgiving turkey.

by Marshall Honorof | June 25, 2014
Videophiles and cord cutters who have been following the Aereo Supreme Court case know by now that the service is effectively dead, with the Court ruling 6-3 in favor of broadcasters that accused Aereo of violating copyright law. Aereo allowed viewers to watch live, antenna-based TV streamed over the Internet to computers and mobile devices. Although Aereo is on its way out, its functionality lives on in a number of other products and services. If you want to watch live network TV without shelling out for a cable subscription, you still have four options. Click here to read more.

Tom's Guide Review: Channel Master DVR+
by Robert Heron | June 7, 2014
Indeed, the selection of subscription-free over-the-air (OTA) TV tuners that provide even the most basic of recording capabilities is limited at best. Furthermore, none of these products feature a dual-tuner configuration for the most basic DVR function: recording one channel while watching another live. The DVR+ from Channel Master elevates our future expectations by providing more than one OTA tuner in an easy to use, compact, package. Click here to read more.

Digital Trends Channel Master DVR+ Review
by Caleb Denison | May 9, 2014
If you're a cord-cutter, or even if you just live in an area without cable/satellite TV service, you've probably been searching for something like Channel Master's DVR+. The $250 DVR+ is a dual-tuner digital video recorder that works with an HD antenna to capture and record free, over-the-air (OTA) broadcast television. You don't have to connect it to the Internet - though if you do, you'll get a better program guide and access to video-on-demand service, Vudu - and there are no subscription fees to worry about.

CNET Logo Channel Master DVR+ review: Subscription-free, no-frills DVR for over-the-air TV
by Matthew Moskovciak | May 1, 2014
The Good The Channel Master DVR+ records free over-the-air TV without any subscription fees. Program guide data is provided by Rovi at no extra charge. It has dual-tuner functionality and excellent image quality. And Vudu is supported, opening up access to streaming movies and TV shows on a pay-per-view basis.

The Bad While you can record a series, you can't tell the DVR+ to only record new episodes. The user interface is utilitarian, extended information like episode names and summaries is often hidden, and there are occasional glitches when playing back recordings. It also doesn't include the necessary hard drive or Wi-Fi adapter.

The Bottom Line Even if it is a little rough around the edges, the Channel Master DVR+ delivers on the cord-cutter promise of an over-the-air DVR+ without subscription fees. Click here to read more.
Go San Angelo Sound Advice: Searching for digital over-the-air TV recorders
by Don Lindich McClatchy | April 30, 2014
Q. In past columns you have discussed over-the-air TV and recommended antennas for its reception. On several occasions I've looked for video recorders with tuners that work in the digital over-the-air TV environment, as VHS recorders did in the old analog environment. I have had no success finding such a recorder. I say no success, because in the past I if I located a recorder it had terrible reviews and currently I can't find recorders advertised anywhere. Are there any companies manufacturing them? Furthermore, are there any recorders you are willing to recommend?

A. They say nature abhors a vacuum, and I have been wondering myself about the dearth of recorders on the market. Channel Master, an antenna manufacturer, has come out with a recorder that looks like a winner. I have not tested it yet, but based on Channel Master's reputation I am willing to mention it here until I have the opportunity to test one. Click here to read more.
Dallas News DVR+ brings over-the-air recording to cord cutters
by Jim Rossman | April 26, 2014
Cutting the cord.

You may or may not know the term, but I'm willing to bet that most of you have considered it at least once.

Cutting the cord refers to getting rid of pay TV and just living with over-the-air broadcasts and streaming services like Netflix.

When your TV bill comes in and you see that $75 to $200 (or more) monthly charge, it's easy to dream for a few minutes about not having to pay for TV. Click here to read more.
The Street #DigitalSkeptic: Channel Master Could Be Big Blade in Cable Cord Cutting
by Jonathan Blum | April 24, 2014
This slim, half-inch-high box, about the size of a decentish issue of Vogue, basically acts like a cutting-edge set-top driven TV, but tweaked to work with throwback digital broadcast television signals. Pay the flat $249 for the DVR+, connect it to any one of a number of readily available hard drives and HD antennas and, for no monthly fees, the unit offers a rich multichannel TV experience for broadcast TV shows and some online video services, such as Vudu. With a Slingbox 500, you can watch your Channel Master TV on any connected mobile device.

Now for sure, several issues loom with the Channel Master DVR+. (More on that in a moment.) But overall, since I first touched this box back at January's International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, it's become a little gizmo with a big story. Click here to read more.
Tech Hive Channel Master DVR+ review: Record over-the-air TV with no fees and few frills
by Susie Ochs | April 23, 2014
Cutting the cord doesn't have to mean cutting yourself off from broadcast TV. Depending on where you live, an HD antenna will let you pull in dozens of local channels over the air, including sports, news, big events like the Oscars, and a lot of the same network shows you'd find on, say, Hulu Plus.

Channel Master's DVR+ lets you record those shows, and unlike other DVRs such as the TiVo or the Tablo, it doesn't have a monthly fee for the channel guide. That makes it one of the cheapest ways around to record over-the-air TV just don't expect a slick presentation or a lot of bells and whistles. Optional accessories can expand the box's capabilities significantly, but it's nice to not have to pay for features you don't need. Click here to read more.

There's nothing I despise more than paying a ginormous cable TV bill - except for filing my taxes, getting root canal surgery, and watching infomercials for The Potty Putter.

That's why, a few years ago, I decided to kick the cable habit and join the small but growing cadre of "cord cutters," people who've abandoned their pay TV subscriptions for the more interesting and generally more affordable pastures of Internet video. Click here to read more.

The DVR+ is one of many OTA DVR coming to market this year. When I first read over the features of the DVR+ I wasn't impressed, mainly due to the lack of easy multi-room capabilities. After using the DVR+ for a couple of weeks I have found it to be very clean and simple to use. Click here to read more.
The Spectrum Monitor Channel Master's DVR+
by Ken Reitz | April 2, 2014
Last December, Channel Master introduced its DVR+, an OTA receiver with a 16 GB built-in memory, available direct from Channel Master for $250 (plus shipping and applicable taxes). This receiver is notable in that it has two built-in tuners (so that you can watch one OTA channel and record another) and it can be connected to the Internet via an Ethernet cable (not included) or wirelessly via a USB-based Wi-Fi adapter (also not included). An external hard drive may also be purchased to beef up the recording capabilities. The 16 GB built-in drive is good for a couple of hour and a half movies, more if the content is standard definition. It's really intended to be used as a pause-and-play feature that lets you pause the action (the unit starts recording the program you're watching) while you answer the door, phone or get more popcorn. When you get back, just hit the resume button and the program continues where you left off. Click here to read more.

Are you tired of paying $1500 to $2000 a year for watching your supposedly-free TV? Do you receive a number of local HDTV channels successfully where you live? Then this $250 DVR (and no monthly subscription fee) is exactly what you want. HDTV is terrific, and if you are subscribing to cable or satellite, they are compressing down the hi-def signals hugely in order to cram more channels on the line, and with OTA (Over The Air, for those who haven't been paying attention) HDTV you will see just how good HDTV resolution can be.

Digital Trends Channel Master DVR+ First Look
by Caleb Denison | March 24, 2014
The Channel Master DVR+ appears to have the potential to become a cord-cutter's best friend. This dual-tuner DVR can record two over-the-air (OTA) television programs at once, or allow its user to record one show while watching another. Unlike other DVRs, such as TiVo's products, the DVR+ requires no monthly subscription for programming information. However, such freedom comes with a price. The DVR+ costs $250, and it only comes with 2 hours worth of storage space, which will require additional investment.

In our video, we take a look at the DVR+ in action and get a close look at its form factor and connectivity. Click here to view video.
Wired Channel Master DVR+
by Rick Broida | March 19, 2014
A few companies have tried their hand at antenna-friendly DVRs. But these big, clunky boxes have been underwhelming at best, with single tuners, anemic or non-existent program guides, and zero internet connectivity.

So when you look at Channel Master's DVR+, at least on paper, you can't help but feel excited. This waffle-thin unassuming black box offers dual over-the-air tuners, virtually unlimited storage, a gorgeous channel guide, and freedom from the kind of monthly fees that make a TiVo so hard to swallow.

HDTV Magazine Channel Master DVR+ Review
by Marshal Rosenthal | March 13, 2014
I used to have a Replay unit in the early 90's for recording TV shows it was clunky and the hard drive was noisy but it worked. To record shows today you have to depend on a digital recorder being built into a cable box/satellite receiver. That not only keeps you paying for the TV service, in a sense, but also dictates how the DVR's used by the company providing the TV signal. So if you've cut the cord and get your TV from an external antenna, you've been out of luck. So say hello to the $249.99 Channel Master DVR+ but don't say hello to extra fees, because using it doesn't cost anything and that includes the electronic program guide that updates the TV shows on a viewable grid.

FTA Blog Review: DVR+ vs. Windows Media Center
by Michael Kilgore | March 11, 2014
When I first read about Channel Master's DVR+, I guessed that it was like my Simple.TV device. Tunes over-the-air TV? Check. Works best with a USB hard drive? Check.

As so often happens, I was wrong. The nice folks at Channel Master sent me a DVR+ to review, and I quickly discovered that it's very little like Simple.TV. The DVR+ records OTA TV, but it doesn't stream on its own, and it hooks directly to the TV for viewing. Come to think of it, those features match a Windows Media Center computer, so that's what I'll use for the comparison test. Click here to read more.

If you are a cord cutter you know that one thing that is difficult to live without is a DVR. You can buy a Tivo Roamio and pay a smaller monthly service but you cut the cord so you wouldn't have to pay a monthly charge.

CBS Money Watch Logo Five innovative products I would actually buy at CES
by Dave Johnson | January 13, 2014 9:43 AM
The 2014 International CES was last week, and I was there, walking acres and acres of exhibits looking for examples of bona-fide innovation. But amid the sea of slightly larger televisions in the Central Hall and me-too smartwatches in South Hall, truly compelling products were hard to find. That said, I've rounded up five products from the show that I would actually spend my own hard-earned money on. Indeed, I expect to own all five of these before the year is out.

3. Channel Master. You already know about TIVO, but you might not like the monthly subscription fee. Channel Master is an exciting alternative, designed expressly for over-the-air TV broadcasts -- ideal for cord-cutters trying to save money by doing away with cable and other monthly fees.

I saw several stories this week on Channel Master TV, a single box that combines two tuners for receiving and recording off-air TV broadcasts. (You can watch one show while recording another.) The box includes a player for Internet video content, including access to "the most HD movies streaming on demand" from Vudu.
