For example, this one isn't released yet, but this would be fkin perfect...

Could even implement alongside a HDHomeRun for DVR, could cast to it with the phone or tablets, etc...
When I was TV shopping the higher-end Vizio got crossed off the list as it did not have an internal turner. You can add an external one but I didn't want to be bothered. I run a HD antenna on my LG OLED which works great - it's how I watch football season. Watching "free" OTA tv should not cost me unnecessary money.

The ability to cast stuff from my phone is phenomenal. That's how I've been able to watch most things recently. Find the video on whatever platform, just cast it to the tube and enjoy. It's the fucking titties.

Yeah - well I won a cheap 55" tv and I'd rather not spend a bunch of $$$ on replacing a tv because it doesn't have a tuner. I get it, but one would think there'd be a market for them. There's another one coming out, similar to what I linked but its only on pre-order and god knows when it will show up. The other thing and perhaps my main goal in all of this, is to take away the need for the kids and anyone using it to have to switch inputs based on what they want to do or watch.

I really could careless about the OTA stuff too other than local news (which I more or less never watch) or football/racing...

Bunch of devices can do this. I think Mo is doing it with a Chromecast.

I'm pretty sure you can screencast natively from Android and apple to any smart TV that's connected to the same wifi network. I can cast to my TV or Roku

Straight from my phone to cast it to my Roku TV. Most Android phones equipped with Nougat/Oreo should have the same functionality. I have a OnePlus 5T phone with Oxygen OS which is very similar to stock Android found on the Pixels. I love this phone.

I was going to buy one, then found this feature when I was playing around on the phone in December so now I can save that $40 and spend it on P16 sometime soon.

I can't speak for Apple but I'm sure they have that feature. Just buried somewhere in the settings.

Been out of the game for a while but I'm rocking a S912 android box with LibreELEC installed for Kodi. Lightweight and super fast. Don't really watch much TV at all anymore though.

That's Miracast, sadly not a lot of phones have it. It can do straight up screen mirroring and not just single apps. My old LG did, but not my new Pixel

Chromecast and Apple's AirPlay are different but similar. Everyone needs proprietary bullshit.
