Product Description

Why Simple.TV? Simple.TV is the premier single tuner DVR that captures free-to-air broadcast HDTV, and streams live & recorded TV to all your favorite devices -- anywhere, anytime. Get all your broadcast TV favorites on iPad, Android device, PC, Mac or Roku box and never pay for cable again. Simple.TV is the ultimate DVR for your iPad Watch live and recorded television from anywhere you have an Internet or 4G/LTE connection. Don't have an iPad? No problem, use an iPhone or iPod touch! You can also watch television on your big screen along with your Roku box if that's the way you roll. We also love Android and will be rolling out Android support (native apps) before the end of this year. Simple.TV lets you add your own USB hard drive you watch and record cable TV (unencrypted basic cable a.k.a. ClearQAM). For a better experience, you can cut the cord and ditch cable TV by using your own over-the-air antenna (available at fine electronics stores) to watch and record free broadcasts from all of the major broadcasters. Screaming Offer! Compared to other similar OTA DVR solutions in the market, Simple.TV Premier Lifetime (especially this Woot offer) is dramatically less expensive to purchase, doesn't require pricey monthly fees, and doesn't have any minimum term commitments or any termination fees. It does exactly what we promise - it turns any of your connected screens into your very own entertainment system. The Best Part? You don't need a cable subscription. And BTW, your Premier Lifetime subscription is transferable to any new Simple.TV devices in the future. So, when the time comes to upgrade your unit, you won't have to purchase a new subscription. Told you - it's that simple!

Verified Purchase
Aereo is (was) an online service available in various cities that allowed customers to connect to an antenna and then watch, record and play over-the-air broadcasts through a Roku box, tablet, smartphone or computer. On June 25, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that Aereo was enough like a cable TV service that they would have to pay the broadcasters for the programs they were delivering, and on June 28, they ceased providing their service.

Immediately I began looking for an Aereo replacement and decided to try the Simple.TV 1 tuner model. Fortunately, it arrived the same day that Aereo was switched off, so I began using it immediately. There have been numerous reviews of the Simple.TV, so I'll stick to comparing it with Aereo in hopes that it will help other Aereo customers make up their mind. Simple.TV does basically the same thing that Aereo did, except that with Simple.TV, the hardware is in your home, not in the cloud.

I have been getting my TV programs over-the-air (OTA) with a roof-top antenna and was using the Aereo as a DVR. If you do not currently have an OTA antenna (or clear QAM cable) then you will not be able to use the Simple.TV. Your antenna plugs into the Simple.TV box. Your router also plugs into the Simple.TV box. It is NOT wireless. It's helpful if your antenna cable and your router are located close together. You also need to provide a hard disk drive. I used a WD 500 GB portable drive that's powered through the USB connection. The Simple.TV will not work without the hard drive, even if you don't plan to do any recording. By comparison, Aereo was entirely in the "cloud" and there was no hardware to hook up. Just establish an account, and then start streaming TV to your devices.

Update 1/21/14: The 2 tuner has yet to come out. Guide still has some issues but still being worked on. This device has now been discontinued. The simple.tv website shows it as sold out and according to their tweets they will no longer be offering this gen 1 unit. I am still very happy with this device and have no regrets. Others however have not been so lucky. Be informed and check some of the posts on their forums.

update 12/25/13: So a LOT has happened at the end of the year. Initial google app is great. Do expect some updates. They just released an ipad app, iPhone should be out by end of the year. They now allow multiple units on the same account. So if you want more simple.tv's you can add them. They fixed the guide, quickly. All improvements.

Update: 12/23/13, Still enjoy the unit. Google app just released, some bugs but overall an excellent beginning. Also, just changed from Rovi guide to Gracenote eyeQ. Definitely some issues there, however simple.tv is aware and working on it. Have not missed any recordings, but some missing artwork, and "New" missing from the new episodes. Still does nto change my overall review, but anyone considering should be aware.

Original: Got this new about 2 weeks ago with the lifetime subscription. A 2 tuner model is about to come out in 7 days, made in conjunction with silicon dust. I got this on a good deal and couldn't pass it up.

Be sure to check their website for more info. Internet explorer does NOT work with simple.tv. I use Chrome without issue. I also downloaded chrome off of 1mobilemarket for my kindle fire hd and access simple.tv that way. It also works without issue.

This is a single tuner, stream only device. It doesn't connect directly to the tv. I use the roku to stream to my tv.

The device is great...when it works. I have owned my Simple TV with Lifetime Premier Subscription for three months. The set up is easy, except that nowhere in the instructions does it mention that you have to use Google Chrome or Firefox. That's a pretty big oversight. I live in Microsoft country, and was using Internet Explorer. For two days I nearly pulled my hair out and regretted my purchase. By chance I found an article online the mentioned the need to use Chrome. After that, the set up was simple and I really liked my new DVR. Unfortunately since then, twice I've signed on to my account and discovered that I needed to re-register in order to use my device. The first time, it was a hassle but I was able to enter my "lifetime" code and go through all the steps, and all was well. A week and a half ago, it happened again. This time I entered my "lifetime" code and got a message saying that it was invalid. (Gosh, I'd planned on living longer than three months.) There is no number to call for customer service and they try really hard to steer you toward customer forums rather than bothering their employees with your messy problems. After 10 days of emails and them guessing what to do to fix the problem, my DVR is working properly again. It's a great little toy but the support for it is awful. If you're thinking about buying one, wait a year and see if the company is still in business. If they survive, that may be an indicator that they've finally gotten their act together.

I really like this device, I have not had the problems installing it or running it like other people have reported. I get 39 channels on this device and a lot of them are clear high definition broadcast channels.

I have it connected to an Over The Air (OTA) antenna instead of connected to my cable. This device either can get clear QAM channel from your cable OR OTA ASTC channel via OTA antenna. The reason why I didnt bother with the clear QAM is that its going away in approximately 1 years time as the cable lobby has essentially bribed congress into not forcing cable companies to no longer carry clear QAM channels (those are essentially local channels) so the FCC requirement for that went away.

I purchased the device from Woot.com which is a subsidiary of Amazon and it came with lifetime subscription

My Setups
=============
I picked up a 500 gig USB 3.0 Western Digital hard drive, got it on sale for $39 during black friday weekend. I made sure I didnt get a larger drive, simple search on the internets shows people having issues with larger drives. 500 gig means I have approximately 450 hours of recorded tv shows. If I have to have more hours of viewing/watching then I think I need to get more of a life. When you attach your HD to the simple.tv DVR, the simple.tv will format the HD with a format that is not proprietary (cant remember what it is) but is not readily readable/usable by other programs, so you will lose whatever is on that drive. Caveat Emptor (google it). You can also use a USB stick, I beleive that whatever you use make sure it is 3.0 USB in order to accomodate the higher speed.
