MyWayTV Mates Roku Streaming Stick With Antenna

First announced at CES 2013 as a sleek looking Terk antenna paired with a Roku Streaming Stick, the now named MyWayTV has been reintroduced in a more frumpy form with an anticipated Spring 2014 ship date. And at $170, I’m having a hard time finding value in this solution.

While it’s pitched as single device to competently handle both over-the-top Internet apps along with high definition over-the-air broadcasts, MyWayTV doesn’t provide the clean integration we’d hope for… as it lacks a tuner, requiring two television output cables: HDMI for Roku content and coaxial to feed the television an over-the-air signal. So you’ll be flipping inputs. Ideally, this sort of device would include its own tuner, along with a Roku Live TV app (which we’ve seen in relation to the new Roku Smart TV) for a true all-in-one experience (better yet, a USB storage option for DVR capabilities). Terk/Voxx tells me they’re evaluating such scenarios, but if/when they bake that all in, perhaps it becomes cost prohibitive? In their defense, MyWayTV does ship with a universal remote and a stand, should you be better served by vertical antenna placement. But, for $170, I’d say buy a decent antenna, buy a decent Roku, and save yourself 50 bucks.
