HDTV Magazine Channel Master DVR+ Review
by HDTV Guys | February 14, 2014
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. What most cord cutters are looking for is a way to record over the air HD without having to pay any monthly fees. Channel Master has you covered with theDVR+ (MSRP $249.99). The DVR+ is a subscription free DVR that allows you to cut the cord and still watch late night network TV on your terms. Click here to read more.
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.

CNET Logo Three things I saw at CES 2014 I'd actually buy
by Rick Broida | January 9, 2014 8:24 AM
Needless to say, I visit CES with an eye toward cheap (or at least affordable) stuff, and I found some interesting items I'm looking forward to seeing this year. (Chief among them: the JamStik, which isn't cheap but is very, very cool.) With that in mind, I give you the three things I saw at CES that I'd actually buy:

1. Channel Master DVR+

After a few swings and misses, Channel Master finally mastered the over-the-air DVR. Stocked with two tuners and a very attractive UI, this slender box lets you record locally broadcast shows without paying a monthly fee. (You supply the antenna -- and the hard drive, which is partially a plus because you get to pick the size, capacity, and so on.) Click here to read more.

Streaming Media Logo Channel Master Offers DVR+, a Digital Antenna and DVR in One
By Troy Dreier | December 18, 2013
Better known for its TV antennas, Channel Master is getting into the DVR business. It has introduced DVR+, a living room product aimed at people who don't have a pay TV service and would like more flexibility with over-the-air (OTA) channels. The DVR+ connects to an HD antenna (sold separately) and a TV's HDMI port. Viewers can then watch OTA channels through an HDMI connection, so they don't have to change the source on their TV. They can also pause live television, and record one show while watching another thanks to the device's dual tuners. The DVR+ includes 16GB of internal storage, which the company says is good for two hours of recording. Click here to read more.
Electronic House Logo DVR+ Is the Best Thing for Cable Cord Cutters
By Grant Clauser | December 16, 2013
Count me among the people who want one of these. Channel Master's new DVR+ is a dual-tuner DVR for recording high definition programming over an antenna, but it also includes a broadband connection for streaming video. If you've considered dumping your expensive cable TV service (or like me, only pay for it in one room), but miss the ability to record TV shows, then this product is for you. Click here to read more.
Zatz-Not-Funny-logo Channel Master DVR+ Now Available For Pre-Order ($250)
By Dave Zatz | December 16, 2013
We've been tracking Channel Master's moves since new digital video recorder hardware first surfaced in FCC documents last summer. They've clearly used the intervening months wisely to fine tune both the product experience and marketing strategy as the originally documented pair of K77 set-tops has been whittled down to the single and more memorable DVR+ ($250). And, as you probably guessed from the video above, I do indeed have product on hand… and my initial impressions are quite positive. Click here to read more.

TVtechnology Logo Channel Master Reports August TV Antenna Sales Surge
By Doug Lung | September 6, 2013 8:51 AM
Last week I reported on the increased interest in off-air reception of TV stations in light of the Time Warner Cable/CBS battle over retransmission rights (now resolved). I've heard from a few people that had tried antenna reception; however, some of these had problems getting solid reception, especially in Los Angeles. I've yet to hear if any of my suggestions helped. Click here to read more.

By Rob Sabin | June 6, 2012
I was impressed with how well Channel Master thought through the basic DVR interface, feature set, and aesthetics for the CM-7400 DVR. As a standalone DVR designed specifically for off-air broadcast, it fills a unique niche in today's market, and I can't deny it filled one quite nicely in my home. I'll be sorry to see it go back.

Big Picture Big Sound Logo Channel Master TV Review
By Rachel Cericola | February 15, 2012
If it's free, it's for me!
One of the things that may keep people hanging on is the inclusion of a digital video recorder. Being able to watch what you want, when you want and fast forward through the commercials has changed the way that we watch TV -- for the better, of course. It's also a tough thing to let go. Luckily, you don't have to be DVR-less anymore while still severing ties with your TV provider, thanks to the Channel Master TV. Click here to read more.

New York Times Logo Cutting the Cord on Cable
By Kevin Sintumuang | January 7, 2012

Zatz-Not-Funny-logo Channel Master Launches New DVR For Cord Cutters
By Dave Zatz | December 15, 2011
Channel Master previously championed the now defunct EchoStar DTVPal DVR under their banner... and obviously found some success bringing digital VCR capabilities to the over-the-air crowd as they're launching another fee-free DVR.

By Ben Drawbaugh | December 14, 2011 4:00 PM
If you prefer your DVR with no strings attached, your choices are pretty limited these days. You can of course roll your own, but admittedly, that isn't for everyone. Channel Master does plan to change that, though, as it's currently accepting pre-orders for its over-the-air DVR with over-the-top features that doesn't require a subscription.

CNET Logo New Channel Master DVR records OTA, streams Vudu
but not Netflix

by Matthew Moskovciak | September 13, 2011 8:18 AM
The Channel Master TV is designed to be a one-stop box for cord-cutters. Cutting the cable can be done, but one of the toughest challenges is replacing live TV programs, like sports and local news. We've long been advocates of over-the-air (OTA) HDTV to fill the gap, but there aren't many OTA DVRs and the existing models have significant drawbacks, including the Channel Master CM-7000PAL we reviewed earlier this year.
