Cord-cutters, need some advice

I dont even know if what I want to do is possible but thought someone here would know for sure.

I recently installed an attic antenna and have the coax running to this tuner card installed in my desktop PC.

What I'm wanting to do is somehow stream my local OTA channels from my PC to my TV downstairs. I know I could split the coax from my antenna and run it downstairs but if you knew the layout of my house you would understand how much of a pain in the ass it would be.

Is there something I could purchase to hook up to my downstairs TV that could pick up my OTA channels via WIFI from my PC? If so what program(s) would I need installed on my PC to transmit the signal? The software I use to watch my OTA channels is the one my tuner card came with, WinTV 8.5 and I don't see any feature like this.

I use it with FireTVs, and as long as your wireless is strong enough, or you use a hard wired connection, it works pretty darn well.

So the coax from my antenna would run to this device, then this would broadcast my OTA channels to a FireTV? I was kind of hoping there was a way to broadcast from my tuner card, I have to use it so I can pick up channels on my giant monitor in my bedroom. I guess I could put a splitter at my PC and run one coax to my tuner card and the other to this device.

For Windows 7 with Media player, I did what you are talking about. The coax OTA came into a pc in the living room that had a tuner. Just by setting up a home network, I could watch the OTA channels from my bedroom. The living room pc decoded the signal and using the home network I could watch from the bedroom using the wireless router.

Windows media player let me choose channels and everything from the bedroom pc.

I haven't tried it with Windows 10. Microsoft probably killed that, because Microsoft.

I dont have a PC connected to my downstairs TV. I was hoping maybe there would be a way to cast OTA channels from my tuner card to a Chromecast or FireTV or something

They nuked WMC, so probably doesn't work any longer.

The HDHomeRun is hooked to your router, and then you can access the channels from pretty much any device in your house. FireTV, your phone, tablet, PC, all of it.

This sounds like a LOT of work for what YouTubeTV could do for 1/10th the hassle.

Or any of the other streaming options like Sling, DirectTV Now, etc. All those have monthly fees.

This is a one off spend.

Looks like it doesn't work with Chromecast though. Bummer, all of my TV's in my house have one.
