Your antenna can offer a ton of 100% free television, including content from ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. (Where I live, I get more than 50 OTA TV stations.) The one problem is, if you are not around when the show is live how will you watch it? There are many DVR options for your antenna, so we asked more than 1,000 of our readers what they thought was the best DVR for their antenna.

According to our readers, the Tablo DVR is the best DVR for your antenna with 45.7% of the vote. HDHomeRun DVRs came in second with 16.4% of the vote. All other DVRs came in at less than 1% of the vote and the remaining readers said they did not own a DVR for their antenna.

According to our readers, price and simplicity were the reasons they picked the Tablo DVR. Also, the easy ability to stream it to multiple devices in your house makes both the Tablo and HDHomeRun DVR great options for cord cutters.

If you have not looked at getting an antenna, you may be shocked at how many TV channels you may get. Add in a DVR and you will be able to build a massive library of shows and movies to enjoy.
