Freeview Network tuner

So I have been thinking for a while to set up some sort of freeview distribution at home as a while I go I cut down the cable package to what is essentially Freeview. So I figured might as well go the whole way and set up a dedicated Freeview system that can sit on the network and distribute channels to my streaming boxes.

I did a google and the only thing I could find was a box from a few years ago called Simple TV, does anyone know of any others or does something similar? I am specifically looking for something that doesn't require a PC in the mix but open to having to use on if need be.

I've got a HD Homerun. Has all freeview channels.

Plug normal aerial into it and also plugged into your router.

Don't need a pc


Then can watch all channels on all devices via its app.

Costs about £100.

If u have pc + plex u can also record programs

Took me a while but picked one of these up today and have it running on my PC, Android TV, will configure my Fire TV later on and currently have Plex pulling down EPG data. Very impressed with this.
