Roku Streaming Stick w_remoteChannel Master has long been known as a . The main downside was the lack of network support that would allow them to stream to set-top boxes such as a Roku or Fire TV.

Now Channel Master has announced a new antenna set-top box with a free guide that will connect a streaming media player. According to their ad, you will be able to stream your antenna along with your Apple TV, Roku, Fire TV, and more.

7002There are some changes from the current Channel Master DVRs. The new set-top box will only have 2 days of free programming guides unlike their current 14 days. There is also a pass-through, allowing you to watch it with out a streaming set-top box, such as a Roku, to access the live TV. The HDMI passthrough will also allow you to access a Roku or a Fire TV without the need to switch inputs.

From Channel Master:

Subscription-free, antenna set top box that has inputs for both an antenna and streaming device so you can enjoy antenna and streaming content through one box without changing inputs. The HDMI input is compatible with popular streaming devices such as Roku, AppleTV and Amazon Fire. Works without an internet connection, consumers still enjoy a full TV experience with an abbreviated 2-day program guide. Note: The CM-7002 is only compatible with HDMI TV’s. If you have an older television that is not equipped with an HDMI input, please try our CM-7003 which has coaxial, composite and component video outputs.

One of the possible biggest changes is the lack of a DVR. At this time nowhere on the ad does it say anything about DVR functionality that could mean this device is more similar to the HDHomeRun than a Tablo DVR; however, with so little known right now it could still include a DVR.

The MSRP is $89, making this set-top box a great deal compared to many similar devices on the market today.
