I refuse to pay for cable TV. Instead, what I would do will be to connect my antenna to a Tablo DVR which will record 2 channels at one time. I will then connect to the Tablo via the Smart TV app. This will allow me to watch, pause, rewind and fast forward the television show as long as it is on the record. From the Tablo App, I will be able to record channels that are acquired from the OTA antenna. This is where investing in a high quality OTA antenna will be essential. By doing this, I will eliminate the need for any form of cable TV that I will likely not benefit from the cost of service.
