While we'd love to hear that you purchased a Channel Master Stream+ OTA DVR, we understand that some consumers will choose to go with the Amazon Fire TV Recast OTA DVR solution. That's okay because Channel Master is still here to help you select the best antenna for Amazon Fire TV Recast.
For the best experience with your Amazon Fire TV Recast device, we always recommend an outdoor TV antenna. We recommend a high-quality outdoor antenna for many reasons. First, when an antenna is mounted outdoors and at a height above the roofline of your home, you will not have to deal with the obstructions that work against indoor antennas when trying to receive a good quality signal. Second, common building materials used in walls such as concrete, wood, aluminum, and insulation just to name a few will cause signal loss, as will interference from other electronics in the home. Channel Master offers several different models of outdoor TV antennas. If you are interested other antennas or want to compare all of our models, you may want to take our antenna selection guide for a spin.
You may be thinking to yourself that an outdoor antenna sounds great but for one reason or another you are unable to install an outdoor antenna. You don't stand alone, this is very common for consumers. If you live in an apartment complex you may not have the flexibility of installing an outdoor TV antenna or maybe you are in a house but you just do not have the physical or technical ability to mount the antenna and install a cables from the antenna to your TV.
