I’ve been using Channels (iOS apps, Apple TV app, DVR) for about three weeks now, and I wanted to post to say how thoroughly impressed I am by the whole package.
Some back story: I had an (ancient) TiVo HD and its aging UI, in addition to their latest monthly price increase, finally forced me to look for alternatives. I picked up a HDHomerun Prime and was initially using it with Plex, but while I think Plex is an excellent product, I found the Live TV/DVR experience lacking. My search for something else led me to Channels.
Using Channels apps and Channels DVR has been a pleasure. It was easy to set up, and the Live TV experience is fast and high quality, both at home and remote. There are a handful of small things I hope to see added to the DVR functionality some day, but these are minor quibbles. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the great support on this forum from the developers.
I know I am ‘preaching to the choir’ posting this on this forum, but since posts are often about issues, in the holiday spirit I figured I’d post this ️
