You'll notice a couple things different about the Fire TV Home, once this product is installed.
First of all you get a DVR menu up in the top and secondarily the home screen has things that are a live if I roll over the live area, I get a free preview of what's on the antenna right at this particular point of time and then if I go ahead and scroll it up to DVR here.
You'll see there I get the whole host of channels that scrolls to the right.
