🛠️Method 👍User Experience
Use TV tuner This method suits those who want to record and save Antenna shows on computers. But it is a little time-consuming.
Use DVR It is a cord-cutting method, and users can record Antenna shows within a few steps. But it's a little expensive to get a DVR.
Use USB Drive This method is suitable for those who already have an HDD or SSD. But it has a high requirement for the flash drive's quality.

Record Television Series on Antenna using a Tuner

If you have a TV tuner, you can use it to capture Antenna shows on your computer. Most tuners may have cloud DVR capabilities or built-in DVR, and that means you don't need an external HDD or USB drive.

However, you need to download and install video recording software on your computer, as most TV tuners don't offer a built-in recorder. As for the best free screen recorder, we highly recommend EaseUS RecExperts. This software is compatible with Windows and macOS, and offers lots of advanced recording features. With its aid, you can capture all OTA TV shows on the internet with simple clicks.

When you get all things ready, you can check the below tutorials to start the Antenna TV show recording:

Step 1. Plug the tuner's cable into the computer's USB port to connect it to your computer. Next, connect the Antenna cable to your TV tuner.

Step 2. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to install the card on your computer, and perform a channel scan on the TV tuner.

Step 3. After that, set the tuner to your selected TV shows.
