your going to have to look in the amazon store for HDHomerun app and load it. Not sure if it is available for that unit yet? Would think yes. If not post so SD knows.

From what I remember in looking at it when the Echo Show came out, it doesn't have a proper app system the way Fire devices do. All you can do is add some bits that tell its internal components how to connect to a particular service to play content, which requires that the content already be in a format it understands how to play. Broadcast TV isn't a format it knows how to play, so that's basically the end of it.
