Roku is one of the few places where you can truly cut the cord. You wouldn’t have to be dependant on having a backup cable even after owning a streaming device. The reason why people hold on to their local cable even after owning a streaming device, is simply because they would like to have the local channels on stream as well, but they don’t want to spend time managing the entire fleet of channels that they’ve subscribed to.
Roku also has solutions for this problem. One of the main sources of channels that they’re looking to add to their repository is the bundled channel packages. AirTV is one such bundle, that offers you a lot of channels, all under one umbrella. Imagine owning a few channels, and making a single payment to maintain all of them.
AirTV, an application available on Roku is one such package. They have all of the local channels and streaming services. In this blog, we will take you through the different steps in installing and activating the channel.
