The live TV thingy never became a hot issue for me. At present I am running the HD Homerun tuner with on-board encoding and I use their Android tablet app for watching the news the few times I do. Never have the desire to watch Live TV on my 136" screen.
As far as watching or recording TV shows I also have followed a different path now for almost 10 years. Main reason for doing so, I can't stand watching Adverts/Commercials. For every 60 minutes of a show there are about 18 minutes of advertising the iTunes WebDLs are 43 minutes long because of proper end credits. In addition my watching habits have changed drastically. Again I can't stand watching 1 episode per week for a time then have a few weeks break over the holidays and then watch again an episodes per week until the seasons ends. I am into binge watching now and watch a whole season in a few days and be done with it. No need to remember from week to week or break to break what had happened now it is only from season to season.
Here is a good example, have not watched a single episode yet of the Big Bang Theory or Suits this season, When the BluRays come out I will have a few weeks to be done with my binge watching. I became accustomed to this after watching Netflix and Amazon with their original series and liked it very much. Life is too short and what we do with our time should be entertaining and the trend that Tivo started with their PVR to watch what we want at a time when we want to, has only been refined and made easier by programs like Emby or Plex and cloud storage. Now we can prioritization our viewing and viewing what we want, when we want, from wherever we are even remote over the Internet when we travel.
For keeping up with current TV programs I use an excellent site that lists what is on now https://www.pogdesign.co.uk/cat/ It is not an EPG but you select your shows that you are interested in and it shows you when they are being aired plus a little summary.
Sorry for the lengthy dissertation but I am ready now to go upstairs and catch up with the Black Mirror
