It's a hardware tv tuner. Basically, you need to plug in your TV antenna and power and LAN cable. Here is the link where I bought mine.

https://shopuk.silicondust.com/shop/...crollto=483075

Yes it can watch live tv on 2 devices at the same time since this is a dual tuner. It can also watch live tv while recording another show. If you need they also have a 4 tuner version but is more expensive.

You can watch on your phone or tablet also. But keep in mind, this works only on local network. If you want it to work outside your home network, you need to set it up with Plex Server with a Plex pass.

Hope I answered your question.
Hi sorry do I need a VPN for that?

thinking of getting this to cut the cord
- does the Google Assistant work well?
- does StarHub Go and TVB Anywhere work well? (parents want to keep the VV Drama)
- I just need to get the HDhomerun to act as tuner for local shows?

I do not think so. It is a HW device, network TV tuner for you to watch local free-to-air TV like CH5/CH8/CNA/etc.

4K Netflix may be difficult with VPN based on the response in the thread but 1080p seems possible.

Edit: I mean to say stable 4K Streaming from US version of Netflix may not be easy using traditional VPN vendors.

I do not use Netflix myself but sure there will be 4K in local Netflix.

It is just the VPN speed may limit the possibility of 4K Streaming from US version of Netflix.

No ideas why you get this conclusions from what I said. I said free-to-air Local channels like CH5/CH8/CNA/etc...

Anyway I do not have this Homerun stuff and I do not know if they offer foreign channels or not.

Still for apps, go to local Facebook group “New TV Box SG” to get more useful information and tips.
